Innovation that will Change the Future Industry
New display technologies are poised to deliver a revolution in the dynamic range of content which can be displayed. This talk will show how by working together, we can take advanced display technologies literally to the stars.
Chas Boyd
Display Architect for Direct3D and HLSL
Why does innovation bypass the PC/IT industry?
This talk will uncover the reasons (financial & technological) why advanced display technology (high poi wide color gamut, high brightness, etc.) has been much slower to penetrate the PC/IT markets compared to phones, tablets and TVs. Is innovation in PC-related displays being left to Apple? What can be done to kick-start innovation? What do consumers and enterprise customers want? How are the new AMOLED-based notebooks being received by the market?
David Hsieh
Senior Director, Display
The Mobile Phone - the Hub of the Digital Universe
This talk will discuss innovation in smart phones that has allowed them to replace PC’s as the center of our digital universe, and what innovations we might expect in this platform to enable them to remain the largest market for displays.
Vinita Jakhanwal
Director Displays & APAC Research
Session I:
Shifting Mobile PC Usage Habits & Small Display Innovations: Has innovation bypassed the PC market?

This session will answer the following questions: Is the PC all about cost, or does innovation matter? Why is PC refresh 6+ years and what can be done to accelerate it? Can HDR, OLED, 4K, or WCG (wide color gamut) bring consumers back to the notebook? What are the usage models in major markets? Who is spending money in R&D for notebooks, AiOs & D-Top monitors? Can display makers make money in this segment?
