New Directions in Display Technology

Presented by: Los Angeles Chapter “The Birthplace of SID"
One-Day conference, Thursday, March 25th , 2021
On-line virtual event
 

          If you have already registered for the event, login in here.

 
One thing we can count on is that, the display firmament is about to shift under our feet, again. What displays will we see in our homes (TVs) and what will we see in our cars? Has the market grown or shrunk in these times of the pandemic? Will we see the rise of near eye displays? What new technologies will arise? Will we see more micro and Mini LEDs. Will we have larger color gamut and better touch displays?

This year's One Day Symposium will tell you what these technologies are, why they will (at least) partially displace the old standbys, and when we will see them in commercially available products. 

The Presentations (Program Time)

Ken Werner - "The Present State of Television".
Principal, Nutmeg Consultants.

Chris Chinnock - "8K & Light Field / Holographic Development"

Save the Date
