3M is a leader in making displays brighter and more energy efficient, thinner and more durable here at the Society of Information Display’s Display Week tradeshow showing their AR/VR ‘Screen Door Effect’ filter, to provide the AR/VR user with an immersive experience without the cost of creating a visual artifact where you can see individual pixels, like looking through a screen door. 3M has developed a new film that is designed to vastly improve this issue. The Screen Door Effect is muted while the overall viewing experience is improved. 3M's Automotive Displays to prevent driver distraction and improve safety in automobiles, with solutions including a new louver-less film that shows content exclusively to the driver or just to the passenger. Also featured is a new solution for a head-up display that can be seen even in bright sunshine and with polarized sunglasses.
The Premium HDMI Cable Certification Program is the new program from the creators of HDMI technology that encompasses additional and enhanced cable testing as well as an authentication and verification program. Cables are tested to ensure they support the full 18Gbps bandwidth from the HDMI 2.0b specification plus an EMI test to ensure cables minimize interference with wireless signals. The program is designed to give end users confidence when purchasing new HDMI cables for their 4K/UltraHD products that may include features such as 4K@60Hz, BT.2020 and HDR. Participating HDMI Adopters can promote their ATC-tested High Speed HDMI Cables as Premium High Speed HDMI Cables or Premium High Speed HDMI Cables with Ethernet using a unique anti-counterfeiting authentication label on their products which can be checked and authenticated using the app on any smartphone.

Winner of the Prize for Best exhibitor at the I-Zone startups and New Tech Demos area at the SID Display Week 2017, Hella together with students from the Institute for Large Area Microelectronics at the University of Stuttgart demonstrate their project to Develop an Active Matrix LCD for Use in High Resolution Adaptive Headlights also presented in detail in this paper.
Conventional adaptive driving beam headlamps are limited in achieving still higher quantities of switchable pixels by the number of LEDs and movable elements needed. In this paper, it is shown that by integrating an active matrix liquid crystal display module, it is possible to realize fully adaptive high-resolution headlights without mechanical elements and a finite number of LED with 30 k switchable pixels.
As adaptive driving beam headlamps (ADBs) are now established and already available in mass-production vehicles, the market is requesting headlight systems with increasing resolution.
State of the art are LED matrix modules such as the HD84 from Hella KGaA Hueck & Co. that realize low beam, ADB, and additional functionalities by using 84 switchable LEDs. But the number of pixels that can be realized using this approach is limited by the number of LEDs that can be integrated in the tight installation space of a headlamp.
Higher resolution is needed to be able to implement new lighting functions to further improve traffic safety when driving at night or dusk. To realize a significant increase in traffic safety, the ADB must be able to simultaneously fade out several drivers of traffic oncoming of the vehicle to avoid glaring and to highlight important areas like road markings and traffic signs. To accomplish this, the headlamp must be able to divide the illuminated area in front of the vehicle into a grid of small areas with individually controlled light intensity. The higher the resolution of the grid, the better are the realizable lighting functions.

Gamma Scientific Near Eye Display Measurement system is a machine for measuring displays that go into VR headsets, heads up displays, Augmented Reality devices, smart glasses and the like. The device can precisely measure the quality of any display. They claim this system to be the first to offer high spatial resolution color and contrast measurements for near eye displays, addressing the unique testing requirements to point in different directions to various areas in the virtual Image Field of view with the axis of rotation for the measurement optics in the eyebox area.
