  • Flat Panel Display Industry Outlook: How to deal with stagnant demand and oversupply? LCD or OLED? Opportunities and Risks beyond 2012?

    The middle- and small-sized panel field is gaining momentum thanks to appearance of new applications for smartphones and tablet PCs, increase in demands for high-end panel display with high definition and the rise of OLED, while large-sized panel field is struggling with sluggish final demand and a decline in profit. In this difficult situation for the suppliers, Chinese companies are strengthening their influence with their aggressive investment. In the end-product stage, "Wintel" system collapsed, and Apple and Android has come to the fore. In accordance with this situation, the boundaries among TVs, PCs and mobile phones are becoming vague. This presentation discusses which direction this industry should take in and after 2012 in this rapidly changing business environment. Analysis on the end products, panels, materials, equipment in the value chain is also presented, focusing on regional circumstances of Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China, or countries where major companies are located.

  • FPD Industry: Changing Competition Arena

    Although one year has passed since major LCD companies fell into the red, panel industry is still struggling, and the slump seems not to end soon. To overthrow this situation, panel manufacturers are working hard on improvement of performance based on development of oxide semiconductor-based TFT. Some companies are trying to change the arena of their competition by introducing mass production of OLED displays. These movements are remarkable particularly in the mobile device field. With higher definition and more richness in color, performance of smartphones and tablet PCs is being increasingly improved.

    Meanwhile, the TV market is faced with slowdown in growth. Since a strategy of adding value such as 3D function to TVs has not worked well, TV manufacturers are shifting their attention in the short term to cultivation of entry-level markets and mass production of LED direct backlight (D-LED) model meeting demands for low electricity consumption. Is there any opportunity for 4K2K or OLED displays to gain momentum in the TV market?

    This presentation produces a forecast of how the competition arena in the FPD industry will change, which direction the polarized FPD development is heading for and what will happen in the FPD market in the future.

  • Post PC era, the perspective of cross-strait and Japan collaboration

    In post-PC era, the opportunity of mobile computing has arrived. The war of FPD industry has also shifted from large to small/meddium panels. The market competition has evolved the entire eco-system, from up-stream components to the end-devices, including content, software platform and application apps. In 2010, Taiwan and China signed the Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement ("ECFA"), a series of prohibition measure has been lifted to foster closer relationships between the two sides of industry. This presentation will talk about the most updated FPD policies of two sides government and the market trend of small/medium products. Finally, how to build up a Asian’s smart handhelds eco-system and the possible collaborations between the cross-strait and Japan FPD industry will be proposed duing the speech.

  • The Better Textbook

    Electrophoretic displays used only in eReader devices have been tripling in volume since 2006 with expected volumes of between 25 to 30 Million units this calendar year. The dual pigment ePaper technology has become a mainstream display technology with applications including eReaders, smart cards, wrist watches, indoor and outdoor signs, shelf labels, battery and memory indicators and others. These image persistent displays are ultra low power making them very eco-friendly, easy on your eyes and use much less material to manufacture compared to other technologies. The eTextbook application or the education market segment is likely to be the next big wave for ePaper technologies. This presentation will explain the electrophoretic display technology, its current development, market adoption, trends in the market as well as technology. Higher resolution displays, improvement in color and launch of flexible displays will also be discussed. All of these efforts lead us towards The Better Textbook and a revolution in the field of education.

  • The ePaper evolution - beyond eReaders

    Most people have only seen or used ePaper solutions in popular eReaders. However, the potential use of ePaper is far greater than just eReader applications. Supporting the growth of ePaper in other markets is the recent development of Radio-frequency identification (RFID), NFC and other low-power wireless protocols. The continuing maturity of these technologies mean there has never been a better time for new ePaper applications, products and solutions to be brought to market. It's critical that manufacturers of ePaper make significant changes in order to integrate ePaper solutions into growth markets. The first step is to create an ecosystem between manufacturers and the customers. Along with building those relationships, ePaper products and solutions must meet the demands of growth markets, specifically designing ePaper solutions that are rugged and flexible enough to perform in demanding environments. Along with building an ecosystem and making more rugged products, ePaper solutions simply need to be easier for customers to use. Customers need to have access to ePaper products so they can experiment with the technology and need to be educated about how ePaper can elevate business. In my presentation I will demonstrate how the maturation of technology along with a shift in thinking from ePaper manufacturers can take ePaper far beyond the eReader.

  • Low power electrowetting displays for epaper application

    Portable multi-media devices with electrowetting-based displays take advantage of the supreme optical performances and of the video capabilities of the screen. In this study application of the Liquavista electrowetting technology for ePaper applications will be described. The technology shows supreme versatility allowing for high performance display operation in all modes: reflective, transmissive/transparent and transflective. Thanks to proper materials choice, design techniques and dedicated driving schemes, the electrowetting display benefits of low power consumption and extended battery life while maintaining the high level of image quality. An electrowetting pixel consists of two fluids that, depending on the changing of the wetting properties of a fluoropolymer coated electrode after electrical signal, actuate an optical switch. Interfacial tension and fluids polarity can be tuned on demand to give the desired electro-optical properties. Pixel design can provide perfect operation of the optical switch both in terms of uniformity and analogue response and in terms of speed. All these features of the technology can be used to provide displays for the ideal ePaper application in order to satisfy any customer needs.

  • Latest development of Flexible Electronic Paper Display “AeroBee”.

    AeroBee is the novel type of display utilizing developed electronic liquid powder. Its response time is very short and has good image holding capability. And AeroBee suits for flexible display because of its simple display structure and robustness of hold image. The hold image does not depend on its cell gap (it means the image would not be disturebed by deformation). We developed thin and flexible EPD(electronic paper display) using electronic liquid powder technology. EPD is the novel type of display that shows the images by reflection and has image holding capability. Besides these characters, thin, light weight and flexibility realize “real-paper-like usage”
