International Symposium, Seminar and Exhibition
June 1-6, 2014 San Diego, California
Exhibition: June 3-5, 2014
San Diego Convention Center
Display Week is the premier worldwide event showcasing advances in electronic display technology. Electronic displays by themselves make up a 100 billion dollar industry, and more importantly serve as the manner in which a majority of consumer electronics differentiate themselves. The Display Week Exhibition provides a venue where display technology and product providers can meet with the engineers, designers, and business development decision makers driving the integration of new display technology into products. History has shown that the display innovations that first appear at Display Week are integrated into leading products within months to a few years.
Display Week is where the world got its first look at technologies that have shaped the display industry into what it is today: liquid crystal display (LCD) technology, organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology, HD and 4K TV, and advanced touch interfaces, just to name a few. Display Week is also where emerging industry trends such as flexible displays, electronic paper, displays for wearables, solid state lighting, digital signage, and printed electronics are brought to the forefront of the display industry. First looks like these are why thousands of attendees will flock to San Diego for Display Week 2014. If your company is involved in any aspect of displays, including display systems, components, services, manufacturing equipment, or applications, come to Display Week 2014 to meet the decision makers that can grow your business on a global scale!
Display Week 2014 will cover the hottest technologies in the display marketplace, including:
||•HD and 4K TV technologies
||•Flexible Displays and e-Paper
||•Touch and other interactive interfaces
||•Advanced optical films
||•Materials and processes for display manufacturing
Display Week 2014 Keynotes
|Keynote 1: Trends in China’s Display Industry and BOE’s Role
||Mr. Wang Dongsheng
Chairman, BOE Technology Group Co., Beijing, China
|China is playing an increasingly important role as a display manufacturer and consumer in the global industry. BOE, as a leading display enterprise based in China, has become a rising star. Mr. Wang Dongsheng, Chairman of BOE, will share his views of the major trends for Chinas’s display industry, both in manufacturing and marketing aspects. He will also deliver his own insights into the future of global display-industry development. Mr. Wang will call for strengthening cooperation within the display industry across the world to explore new application markets and share this growing opportunity both inside and outside of China.
|Keynote 2: Role of Materials in New Display Technology Developments
||Dr. Michael Heckmeier
Senior Vice-President, Liquid Crystals Research and Development, Merck, Darmstadt, Germany
|There is no doubt that major developments in the electronic-display industry are enabled by materials. Today’s dominant display technology, LCDs, require advanced materials to provide their exceptional performance. Despite the fact that the first liquid crystals were discovered over 125 years ago, innovation in liquid-crystal materials continues to improve performance. More recently, OLED displays have emerged as a more serious contender in flat-panel displays. OLED technology has applications in both mobile devices and in television, with advances in materials again driving much of the development. Merck holds a unique perspective as the dominant supplier of liquid-crystal materials and is developing capability in OLED materials as well. Interestingly, the needs of both technologies provide cross-fertilization and an acceleration of overall progress. This talk will take a look back at the role materials have played in the display industry and will look forward at how materials may continue to lead to necessary performance gains in both LCDs and OLED displays, and in non-display applications as well.
|Keynote 3: Toward an Immersive Image Experience
||Dr. Kazumasa Nomoto
Senior General Manager, Display Device Development Division, R&D Platform, Sony Corp., Kanagawa, Japan
|Recent progress in technologies for higher resolution, higher frame rate, wider color gamut, and higher dynamic range of displays, cameras, and signal processing have been dramatically improving the image quality of various media-related content. This technological evolution, along with the development of content delivery, will eventually provide an unprecedented immersive image experience. In this talk, Sony's activities in these fields will be introduced and their recent display technologies for 4K LCD, 4K OLED, and 4K projectors will be discussed. The author will also give Sony's views on where they believe the future of this industry is headed.
