Karl Guttag

Jon Peddie Research (JPR) is delighted to announce that visual virtuoso Karl Guttag will join its panel of industry experts focusing on augmented reality, virtual reality, and the metaverse.

“We are delighted to have Karl joining our team,” said Dr. Jon Peddie, CEO of Jon Peddie Research. “Karl and I go back to the 1980s when he was at TI designing the 34010. His insights and knowledge of graphics and optics is a rare combination and gives his analyses more perspective than can be found anywhere else.”

Karl’s credentials refer back to the revolutionary Texas Instrument TMS3410 and associated VRAM chips. He has 40 years of experience in graphics and image processors, digital signal processing (DSP), memory architecture, display devices (LCoS and DLP), and display systems including heads-up displays and near-eye displays (augmented reality and virtual reality). He then developed LCoS micro projectors. Since 2011, he has analyzed consumer display devices and systems, optical developments, and problems in AR and VR.

Karl is a named inventor on 150 issued U.S. patents, including essential patents related to display devices, graphics/imaging processors, graphics interface circuits, microprocessors, signal processing (DSP), synchronous DRAMs, and video/graphics DRAM. Products using these inventions have created billions of dollars of yearly revenue.

Karl will continue his well-read and highly respected KGOnTech blog, and his articles will often be featured on JPR’s Display Daily site.

It is with great pride and happiness that we welcome a dear and old friend to JPR, Karl Guttag, to the family.
