CEO Forum, Succeeding in the Display Industry featuring David L. Dutton, CEO, Silvaco, Robert McIntyre, Investment Director, LG Technology Ventures, Andrew G. Sculley, CEO, eMagin, moderated by SID Board Member and Marketing Chair Sri Peruvemba.
Display Week annual SID Press Breakfast, where SID Board Member and Marketing Chair Sri Peruvemba shares the winners of the 2019 Display Industry Awards (DIA) and other highlights of the week-long display technology conference. During Display Week 2019, the press had the opportunity to see, touch and test the latest display innovations from companies around the globe - and get up close and personal with display technologies that are changing the way we work, play and live every day.
JBD https://jb-display.com shows their active matrix inorganic microLED display chips and panels with wavelength ranging from UV to visible to IR. The pixel pitch ranges from 400 dpi to 10,000 dpi with a varity of resolutions, high brightness, high EQE, high reliability, these panels are ideal for AR, VR, HUD, projector, weapon sights, 3D printing, microscope and more. JBD's microLED uses wafer level technology, no phosphor, no pick and place, no mass transfer, no quantum dots, everything is made by Silicon and compound semiconductor on a wafer. At SID Display Week 2019, JBD shows 2 million nits brightness Micro LED, 600 DPI bi-color Micro LED display implementing JBD’s proprietary transferring technology to move red and green LEDs to silicon CMOS backplane. Also, JBD shows a mono-color microLED module with the same silicon CMOS backplane solution which achieves a pitch size of only 2.5µm and 10,000 DPI achieving a brightness of a million nits (on the 10K DPI display, 2 million nits is achieved on the 5K DPI display) at a resolution of 5000x4000. JBD is capable to minimize the pitch size to below 2.5µm, which surpasses DLP. Their next step is to increase brightness and to achieve full color.
Plessey at Display Week 2019 showcases their proprietary monolithic microLED technology to enable a new generation of augmented reality devices simplifying optical systems that are brighter, smaller, lighter and higher performing than incumbent light sources currently used in AR/MR headsets, smart glasses, pico-projectors and HUD. Plessey’s GaN-on-Silicon is their route for monolithic addressable micro LED arrays/pixels for hi-res and hi-lum displays, high brightness LEDs, microLED displays, power devices, UV LEDs, photonic integration, advanced sensors, Plessey is creating compelling cutting edge display technology solutions, addressing the challenges and limitations faced in the field of photonics, arrays with emitters as small as 1 micron, driven at low current density for greater efficiency and longevity. External Quantum Efficiency at least three times higher than best in class benchmarks with more improvements in the pipeline. Arrays that provide at least 100,000 nits at 1 watt, that’s TV equivalent brightness at only 5mW, Coloured pixels fabricated in monolithic form.

BOE 12.3″ Rollable Phone, 7.7″ Foldable Phone, 65″ BD LCD, Printed OLED, 8K VR, Automotive, mini-LED
At SID Display Week 2019, BOE shows their latest 12.3" Rollable Phone, 7.7" Foldable Phone, many other flexible displays, UHD displays, micro-displays, other world-leading technologies and innovative applications such as their Smart driving experience brought by flexible display for the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) comprising a smart driver cabin and a spliced display screen of three units in three rows with only 0.99 mm bezels allowing visitors to experience a brand-new in-car display solution of the future. In addition to flexible display applications, BOE also displays the world-leading UHD display solution called the BD CELL UHD display which features an ultra-high static contrast ratio of up to 1,000,000:1, a bit depth of 12 bit, and a black field brightness of less than 0.003 nits, BOE also presents a host of 8K products, including 75" 8K 120Hz display, a 3.5" 8K VR display, and 0.39" 8K spliced VR display. Under the "8425 Strategy" (promote 8K, popularize 4K, replace 2K and make good use of 5G), BOE is now speeding up the application of 8K in many fields. Other leading-edge technologies and solutions that BOE shows at this show include the first ever HDR notebook featuring mini-LED, the 15.6" oxide display with an ultra-high refresh rate of 240Hz, the 55" inkjet-printed 4K OLED display, the 0.39" micro-OLED AR display that enjoys the world's largest pixel density of 5,644 PPI.
In the smart Automotive cabin, the information required for smart travel becomes part of the actual scene with the help of AR technology, the head-up display (HUD) can project useful information such as speed per hour and navigation onto the front windshield for the driver's reference. In addition, BOE replaces the conventional in-car LCD with flexible display. The 12.3" three-unit flexible display is backed by the OLED pixel compensation circuit technology developed by BOE, which can effectively improve the brightness uniformity of mid-sized OLED displays and provide better audiovisual experience for car users, BOE applies flexible AMOLED displays to transparent A-pillars, rearview mirrors to solve the problem of driver's blind spots in automotive design. The flexible display can perfectly match the shape of the A-pillar and show data with delay shorter than one millisecond. With the help of camera, the images blocked by the A-pillar can be shown on the flexible display, thus eliminating blind spots in the field of view. By applying flexible display, the rearview mirror can also be customized according to the interior shape of the car. BOE's smart cabin is equipped with a 6.39" flexible display as a built-in rearview mirror, which makes it safer to drive the car even on rainy and snowy days, BOE also exhibited some innovative applications of in-car display, such as center console solution that supports gesture-based interaction and V-shaped mini-LED for cars. BOE's high-end in-car display panels have been supplied to automakers in the United States, Germany, the UK, Japan and South Korea.

Huawei unveiled their Huawei Mate X flexible foldable phone, the best such flexible phone demonstration yet, though they launch it way way too expensive at €2299. On the other hand they were able to position the flexible display based phone as the ultimate phone one would be able to get, pushing the industry towards making this form factor popular sooner rather than later. This might be a flexible display provided to Huawei by BOE, I filmed BOE's flexible displays for phones here and here you can also see all my other flexible display videos that I have been filming for the past several years here
