SID Display Week May 20-25

On May 20 - 25 in LA will take place the Display Week Conference, the world’s largest technical symposium and exhibition in the electronic display business. This year there will be a special event on May 22 because of the 50th anniversary of the LCD technology. On the other hand there will be about 50+ startup companies and universities in a so called I-Zone. Especially from the I-Zone we can expect to see new emerging display technologies. All in all, the Display week is expected to be bigger than ever.

Here I have found a very good summary of the top tech trends for electronic displays 2018 that perhaps we can see at the Display Week:

For me very interesting is this:

"Ultimate TV
Some TV makers are using quantum dots (QD) in tandem with LCD to better compete with OLEDs’ color and image quality. QD can also replace other elements, e.g., the LCD color filter and perhaps even the backlight itself at some point."

This would be a perfect basis for a new generation of eReaders.

Not really a good basis for an eReader. Even using electo-emissive quantum dot displays, you need to apply continuous power in contrast to the bi-stable displays used in eInk ereaders where power is needed to flip the state but is not needed continuously. OTOH, as a TV display, they offer quite a few advantages including the blacks I still miss from my old plasma TV.

It is going to be a long time before there is an electro-emissive quantum dot display, but OLED TVs are available now with blacker blacks than plasma ever had.
