Fife-based firm Forth Dimension Displays has been bought by New York company Kopin in an $11m (£7m) deal.

The micro display maker in Dalgety Bay makes tiny screens used in medical and military equipment, as well as in movie cameras.

FDD is largely owned by venture capital investors Doughty Hanson and Amadeus, as well as employees.

It was founded in 2004 as CRLO Displays and has offices in Germany, Japan and the US.

Greg Truman, chief executive of the Fife firm, said: "FDD is coming off a very good 2010 with design wins with several high-performance cinematography camera manufacturers."
