M-5: Shift in Display Investment
by Paul Semenza
NPD DisplaySearch

After years of building bigger fabs, display makers mostly stopped at Gen 8 as TV market growth slowed and panel sizes reached the limits of consumer needs. Meanwhile, demand shifted to mobile devices, which value high resolution, interactivity, low power, and low weight. How are panel makers investing to meet these needs? Is there room for new entrants and alternative technologies?

M-14: Oxide-TFT Materials and Processes

by Sang-Hee Ko Park
KAIST


Due to the combined performances of mobility and stability, large-area uniformity, and the use of existing facilities, oxide TFTs have been intensively researched. While the issues need to be further improved, oxide TFTs have finally been mass produced as the backplane for AMOLED TVs and TFT-LCD tablets with low power consumption. In this presentation, the current issues of oxide TFTs in terms of materials and processes and their promise as the driving device of next-generation displays will be described in detail.

The seminar describes the most important aspects of color rendering on displays such as electro-optical transfer functions, luminance, dynamic range (including HDR), contrast (static/dynamic), gray tracking, channel crosstalk, white point, color gamut and primaries, and response time. The seminar shows how to effectively apply these factors in display color management for maximizing the displayed color quality.

M-4: Designing A Power-Efficient High-Quality Mobile Display Systems
by Nikhil Balram
Ricoh Innovations
and
Mainak Biswas
Qualcomm

 
Mobile displays have experienced a tremendous development over last few years. The maximum resolution of the panels used in mobile phones was typically QVGA (320 x 240) in 2005, and in less than 10 years, a point where 4K x 2K panels are a reality for mobile devices has been reached. With the many fold increase in resolution came the need for significant signal processing for better visual quality and power savings. This seminar will delve into the secrets of high-quality yet power-efficient displays for mobile devices. The design choices and panel-processing algorithms that differentiate one display system from another will be explored.

Monochrome electronic-paper displays (EPDs) continue to expand in commercial applications served. However, color EPD and color video EPD must be developed to expand to larger/new markets and will eventually be required for many existing monochrome EPD applications. This seminar will review both the physics and performance of leading e-Paper technologies. In the past year, the industry has restructured substantially, and still there are some new players/technologies emerging. Also, recent breakthroughs continue to bring color e-Paper much closer to commercial reality.
