The SmartVIZ project consortium consists of Osram, Fraunhofer IISB and ASM Amicra. The partners aim to develop direct-view high-resolution transparent and demonstrate a prototype in October 2021.

The project includes three sub goals: the design of red, green and blue micro-LED structures, sub component handling and display assembly. The display backplane will be based on oxide-TFTs (IGZO). As part of the project, automated pick-and-play processes will be developed.
