Touch Screens, Epaper, OLEDs, Pocket Projectors and More to be Covered at DisplaySearch Conference

Emerging display technologies offer alternative performance, cost, design and business models to mainstream display technologies available today. From touch screens, flexible displays, OLED displays, epaper displays to pocket projectors and 3D displays, it's important to explore how new display technologies can bring innovative form factors, attractive visual performance, power savings and potentially drive growth in the near future. The DisplaySearch Emerging Display Technologies Conference: Innovation for the Next Wave of Growth, which will be held on September 3, 2009 in San Jose, California, will bring together representatives from all facets of the display supply chain to discuss the status of emerging technologies, as well as provide a forum for discussing how new display technologies can drive high growth in the near future.

"For a product to be successful in any kind of economic condition, it has to be either cheaper than competitive offerings or has to be highly differentiated. We've seen this firsthand with the success of display-centric products like Apple's iPhone and Amazon's Kindle, which feature next-generation display technologies like touch screens and electrophoretic displays," noted Dr. Jennifer Colegrove, Director of Display Technologies at DisplaySearch. "The industry's best and brightest in these hot market segments will come together during DisplaySearch's Emerging Display Technologies Conference to discuss strategies, opportunities and challenges in an effort to ensure the success of tomorrow's display technologies -- making it a must attend for all those looking to play a role in the future of displays," Dr. Colegrove added.

Sessions at the DisplaySearch Emerging Display Technologies Conference will address these hot topics:

Touch Screens

With touch screen revenues forecast to exceed $9 billion in revenue by 2015 (as shown in Figure 1), opportunities this segment are promising for new touch screen technologies reaching commercialization. Conference attendees will learn about the latest trends in touch screen markets and technologies in a dedicated morning session. Confirmed speakers for the touch sessions include:

  • 3M, N-trig, and NextWindow covering multi-touch and new touch applications
  • RPO, Stantum, GestureTek, and Senseg discussing new touch screen technologies, tactile feedback and solutions for the market
  • AU Optronics on in-cell touch, epaper and other new display technologies

Epaper, Flexible and Low Power Displays

Epaper, flexible and low power displays are taking off and applications such as ebooks, enewspapers, mobile displays, USB drives, shelf labels and wearable displays all show promise. Presentations in this session include:

  • Low power reflective display solutions from Qualcomm MEMS Technologies
  • Epaper trends by E Ink
  • Low power transmissive displays from Pixtronix
  • Thin glass for display and touch screen applications by Corning
  • Electrowetting displays by Liquavista

OLEDs & OLED Lighting

According to DisplaySearch's latest research, the total organic light emitting diode (OLED) display market will grow from $0.6 billion in 2008 to $7.1 billion by 2016, at a CAGR of 36%. OLEDs have penetrated into the mobile phone, TV and recently the mini-note industries, and OLED lighting is evolving and will take off around 2011. Featuring presentations from companies including eMagin, participants will discuss the outlook for OLED as well as for OLED lighting.

Pocket Projectors and More

Whether it's for business road warriors or entertainment use, pocket projectors have made it possible to project a large image from a small device nearly anywhere. Despite this, battery life and brightness remain challenges for this emerging segment. Speakers in this session include representatives from:

  • 3M Innovation
  • Syndiant
  • Micron Technology
