Principles of Operation:

  • LIPA will use its critical mass to foster a positive and receptive business environment for laser based projectors
  • LIPA will focus on all laser illuminated projectors –  except for pico-sized
  • LIPA will be open to all participants that wish to contribute to the stated mission and subject to Board approval.
  • LIPA will provide guidelines and promote adoption of laser-related standards, but not seek a voice in the standards-setting process.
  • LIPA will expect members at the Board and Participant level to dedicate staff resources and actively participate in LIPA activities
  • LIPA will promote education and best practices throughout the value chain
  • LIPA will not impede current product sales or current product shipments, focusing efforts on communicating the benefits of lasers and realistic product timelines.
