- We've completed the 720p to 1080p scaling feature. It's currently in beta testing at some of our key corporate customers, and we should be completing the beta program within the next few days. Once we clean it up, we will make it available as a free firmware upgrade from our website. We will write another blog post when we're ready to release this feature. This feature is pretty significant as it will dramatically improve the user's experience when viewing 720p content on our 1080p display.
- We recently had some incoming quality problems with one of our key component suppliers. We rejected the out-of-spec components and are waiting for a new batch of parts that meet our incoming quality specification. This unfortunately added a delay of a few days to all orders. We apologize for this delay. We believe rejecting the poor quality components was the right thing to do so that we don't pass that to our customers.
- We've read in our Forum and in our emails that one reviewer (TheGameVeda) of the ST1080 is a contractor or employee of SiliconMicroDisplay paid to say good things about the ST1080. We want to say, unequivocally, that TheGameVeda is not in any way associated with SiliconMicroDisplay. He is a customer and his opinions are in no way influenced by us.
As most of you know, we are a small company and, therefore, have small company challenges in dealing with ramp up issues and doing additional marketing to promote our products. What we are is agile – agile to listen to our customers and to respond as we are with the 720p scaling feature and working on something that 3D PC gamers will be happy about (announcement to come). What we are is committed. All of us at SiliconMicroDisplay have sacrificed significantly both personally and professionally because we believe in our core technology and the vision of where our technology will go.
We have received tremendous feedback from our customers who are delighted by our product. We have also received clear feedback about where our product and service have faltered. We are committed to both building on the good and fixing the bad. We thank you for your enthusiasm, support and praise. We also thank you for your patience as we continue to work on things to improve our products and services.
