Panasonic announces their upcoming new Full Frame camera system using the Leica L-Mount. This camera will do 4K60 with an XQD and an SD card slot, a 3-tilt display (not sure yet if that means with flip out support or not), the limitations of the 4K60 when it comes to cropping or record length limitations are not known yet. The Panasonic S1 will be 24 megapixel while the Panasonic S1R will have a 47 megapixel sensor. The camera is coming on the market early 2019 already, that is what they are saying anyway. Things like weight, exact size, battery life and other things are not announced or defined yet as this system is now under development. Hopefully Panasonic will have their autofocus technology fixed and fully usable (unlike with their GH5) in this camera.
Tour of the LG Display booth at SID Display Week 2018 featuring LG's 77" transparent and flexible OLED display showcasing LG’s expertise in manufacturing large OLED displays made on clear polyimide then separated from the glass plate using a laser process.
LG 65” Crystal Sound OLED generates sound on the surface of the OLED display (as used in the Sony OLED TVs). LG has sticked two small ‘exciters’ at the back to turn the OLED panel into a speaker
LG shows a high resolution 4.3-inch 5K VR display with a density of 1,443ppi developed in collaboration with Google, it is a white OLED with color filters. The brightness is only 150 nits which would not be high enough for a smartphone display but is sufficient for Virtual Reality headsets.
For the automotive displays demos, LG uses the same LTPS technology commonly found in mobile phones to make car displays, a new car dashboard concept that includes displays in the center of the dash as well as one each for the driver and passenger. This trend is intended to replace all the mechanical display modules with interactive touchscreens. The passenger display, which was much larger than the one for the driver, provides access to multiple functions, like movies, messaging and other kinds of media.
LG Nanocell TV technology to compete with the Quantum Dot. They have small nanoparticle which are 1nm in size inside the color filters.
This is a tour with Dr Guillaume Chansin, Technology Consultant at Irimitech.

HDMI 2.1 brings auto low latency mode (ALLM) and variable refresh rate (VRR) gaming here demonstrated on a Samsung QLED TV with a new firmware update to add that functionality support to the Microsoft Xbox One X. For more information about HDMI 2.1 features for gaming see my other video. That VRR functionality of HDMI 2.1 can be considered similar to dynamic refresh rate technologies like AMD’s FreeSync and NVIDIA’s G-Sync which are now popular for gamers buying new gaming PC monitors and new graphics cards, but the target market here for the HDMI 2.1 is also for gamers to be able to enjoy those features on the 4K TVs in the future. So expect upcoming 4K TVs to support it, if not it even being added to the firmware of existing 4K TVs on the market (like possibly as part of an evt firmware update for this Samsung QLED 4K TV), and here also updated with the firmware of gaming consoles like the Xbox One X.
Tour of the faytech booth at the SID Display Week 2018. In this exhibition faytech focuses on their large format displays and optical bonding expertise and service. In the video you can see several faytech products, but also their partner’s products, which are optically bonded by faytech.
In the video, they show several 86” Optically bonded “blackboard” devices with PCAP Capacitive touch technology for educational or multi-media purposes. During the tour a 75” outdoor IP65, (dust- and water-proof) Multi-media PC, as well as faytech’s own 55” Open Frame (HDK) Touch Monitor with 1000+ nits of brightness can be seen. This Open Frame is the perfect solution for integrating into a machine or wall. Eventually, the 65” FlatFrog In-Glass touch device bonded by faytech is shown, which is interesting, because only faytech possesses the bonding technology to do so. Then the 46” 2500+ nits outdoor kiosk from faytech’s partner, which is perfect for in- and outdoor use is presented. And at last, faytech’s 15.6” smart mirror with Capacitive touch technology is shown, which is perfect for the bathroom.

Zhijing Nanotech from Beijing, China, develops next-gen quantum dot backlight units (QD-BLUs) for wide color gamut QLCD technology, which contains perovskite quantum-dot film (PQDF) as a primary light-conversion component. The PQDF exhibits high light conversion efficiency, narrow emission peak, high integration and low cost. During Display Week, they demonstrated the wide-color gamut PQDF-LCD TV prototype, which was achieved by combining the blue-light emitting diode (LED) chip, red K2SiF6:Mn4+ (KSF) phosphor, and green PQDF as RGB backlight sources. The luminance is above 500 nits.

Every year, dozens of applicants submit their pre-market and emerging products to compete for a free booth where they can share their inventions with buyers, manufacturers, potential partners, industry leaders and thousands of attendees.
Jeff Yurek, Nanosys Director of Marketing at SID DisplayWeek 2018 in Los Angeles talks about the Quantum Dots which Nanosys has been developing since its founding in 2001. Jeff walks me through the company’s technology roadmap to explain how Quantum Dots can be used in displays of all types from LCDs to OLEDs to microLEDs and even emissive Quantum Dot displays of the future.
Quantum dots are tiny man-made crystals. They are so small that you can’t see them with a typical microscope. In fact, they’re 10,000 times narrower than a human hair. Quantum dots are actually very powerful devices and it’s their size that gives them a unique ability: to convert light into nearly any color in the visible spectrum with very high efficiency.
Each quantum dot is actually a tiny semiconductor -- which means it can convert incoming energy. The electronic characteristics of quantum dots are determined by their size and shape. This means they can control the color of light given off by a quantum dot just by changing its size. Bigger dots emit longer wavelengths like red, while smaller dots emit shorter wavelengths like green. Think of a guitar string. When a guitar string is shortened, it produces a higher pitch and when it is lengthened, it creates a lower pitch. The tune of a quantum dot – the wavelength of the light it emits – behaves in a similar way.
Today, Quantum Dot displays are built just like LED displays. The quantum dots are added to the backlight of the display in the form of a translucent plastic film that’s loaded with dots. Each TV contains literally trillions of Quantum Dots. In this mode, the Quantum Dots are improving existing LED displays by enabling them to be more power efficient and deliver better color.
The film itself is made using a roll-to-roll coating process. Nanosys manufactures Quantum Dots in Silicon Valley, California and partners with companies like Hitachi Chemical to create Quantum Dot films used by display makers.
Unlike OLED materials, Quantum Dots are inorganic. This means they’re really stable and can be handled more easily in manufacturing. That makes for a tougher, longer lasting display that doesn’t exhibit burn-in issues.
According to Nanosys, Quantum Dot technology is not limited to LCDs. It can improve displays of all types from LCDs to OLEDs to microLEDs to pure, emissive QDEL displays.
