SAN DIEGO -- June 3, 2014

Kopin Corporation (Nasdaq: KOPN), a leading developer of innovative wearable
computing technologies and solutions, today announced it will introduce
high-brightness displays and display modules for smart eyewear at the SID
Display Week Conference in San Diego, California.

Building on its leadership in the wearable market, Kopin’s transmissive LCD
and display modules are ultra-compact and energy efficient, yet bright enough
for reading in sunny outdoor environments. Kopin’s line-up includes the
breakthrough Pupil^TM display – the world’s smallest display module for
everyday use. By delivering the most compact displays for consumers and
enterprises, Kopin is building on its industry lead and meeting the demands of
the growing wearable market.

“Consumers wearing smart eyewear will expect to view content and information
easily in any light conditions,” said Dr. John C.C. Fan, CEO of Kopin. “We
have made significant breakthroughs in our display design and processing,
super-bright and efficient backlight, and ultra-low power driver ASIC to
deliver a bright screen image that is sunlight readable. In addition, our
displays and modules are ultra-compact, allowing much more flexibility in
smart eyewear design. Our OEM customers can use our display solutions to
dramatically shorten the time to market and save on development costs.”

Kopin’s new line of displays include a WQVGA display (432 x 240 resolution in
0.20” diagonal) and nHD display (640 x 360 resolution in 0.26” diagonal).
Combined with the company’s super-bright backlight, these displays deliver
more than 5000 nits (candela per square meter) of brightness. Kopin’s White
Pupil^TM display module incorporating a WQVGA display, see-through Pupil^TM
optics, and backlight is the world’s tiniest display module, yet delivers
sunlight-readable bright images to the eye with less than 100 mW of power
consumption when driven by Kopin’s A230 driver IC. When fully integrated,
these capabilities deliver a complete display solution for customers looking
to take smart eyewear to market quickly.

At SID, Kopin is also demonstrating its unique concept systems that
incorporate these ultra-compact, high brightness display modules. One of the
concept designs incorporates the White Pupil^TM display module behind the
eyeglass frame to make the display module almost invisible. It also
incorporates an audio speaker design that blends with the eyewear, enabling
the user to hear text messages and phone calls. This is the first smart
eyewear that looks natural, yet has many of the key functions useful for
consumers. Concept models incorporating the White Pearl^TM module are designed
for light industry and enterprise applications.
