2016 Program

   Special Topics


New enabling innovations and applications of existing and new display solutions are enhancing large-area and seamless tiled displays featuring areas >1000 ft.2, pixel resolutions ranging from 3 to 30 ppi, full-color capabilities, high contrast ratio with brightness solutions ranging from 500 to >5000 nits, and indoor and outdoor capabilities. Papers relative to the technology and applications of these displays for curved, compound curved, and flat formats in any aspect ratio are solicited.

Invited Paper:
New “Glass Signage”
Manufacturing: “Glass Direct-Bonded LCD” and
“Transparent Glass Screen”

Two types of new glass signage have been developed by using glass integration platform technology. The bonding technology using original glue can easily covert window glass to signage. Low-temperature glass lamination technology with an original interlayer provides a transparent glass screen for digital projectors. These platform technologies will expand display applications.

Display-Quality Measures for Direct-Emission
LED Displays

It was shown that typical rule-of-thumb measures for visual quality are inadequate when characterizing digital-signage-type displays, which typically exhibit very large angular extent, large viewing distances, high front-of-screen luminance, and pixel spatial profiles which are delta-like. A method based on the Barten integral for characterizing visual quality will be introduced. The validity of the method has been demonstrated by applying it to a number of displays, including a direct-emission LED display.

Late-News Paper:
Screen-Free Floating 3D Image in a Crystal Ball Using Spatially Imaged Iris and Multiview DFD (Depth Fused 3D) Technologies

A method for displaying clear floating images in a crystal ball is proposed. Its symmetric optics provide clear and natural 360° images with smooth motion parallax in the horizontal and vertical directions using the directional selectivity of a spatially imaged iris method and natural 3D images of a multiview DFD display.
