LCDs Evolving Faster than OLEDs:IPS Goes Mainstream, Constituent Technologies Developing Rapidly

Datetime: 10/25  14:30 - 17:00

Floor: PACIFICO YOKOHAMA Conference Center

About lecture and lecturer

IPS LCD Technology with an ongoing evolution.

First , we will talk about an IPS LCD's history and the latest technology. The history is focused on the aperture ratio improvement since 1990s. Second, we will introduce the principle how to improve the aperture ratio using an IPS-Pro-Next which is the latest pixel structure. Furthermore, technologies of IPS photo-alignment and low scattering LC material which can increase the contrast ratio will be introduced for large sized 4K2K LCDs in addition to mobile ones.

Product Development Centor, Corporate Advisor

Panasonic Liquid Crystal Display Co., Ltd.

Kikuo Ono joined the Hitachi Research Laboratory of Hitachi, Ltd. in 1982 where he developed polycrystalline silicon TFTs and TFT-LCD simulation. In 1994, he engaged on process design of amorphous silicon TFTs, development of moving picture, and pixel design of IPS type TFT-LCDs for TVs in Hitachi Displays, Ltd. Since 2010, he has been developing IPS type TFT-LCDs in Panasonic Liquid Crystal Display, Ltd. He is now the corporate adviser of Product Development Center of the company. He is a technical expert on the TFT-LCD, and has acquired about 350 patents in the world. In particular, he has obtained patents with respect to highly basic pixel structure of IPS with high aperture ratio performance. He was awarded the National commendation of Invention award in 2013 under the title to say the IPS type liquid crystal display panels that achieves a wide viewing angle and low power consumption.

QDEF: Enabling High Color Gamut in LCD

This paper will review quantum dot technology, discuss how quantum dot films are being integrated into LCD systems, and identify the relevant system parameters to efficiently achieve common color gamut targets.

Modeling and measurement analysis will be used to examine quantum dot enhanced LCD systems in applications ranging from hand held to television displays. Finally, a brief analysis will be provided outlining improvement in viewer quality assessment as a function of the increase in color gamut.

Quantum Dot Color IQ Optical Components for LCD Backlighting

Quantum dots are an emerging new product category for LCDs of all sizes and varieties. In 2013, they enabled the widest color gamut TVs available on the market in ten Sony models spanning 40”-65” HD and UHD sets. In this talk, we will introduce the basics of quantum dot materials, and how their unique properties enable wide color gamut displays with the highest level of efficiency achievable. We will also discuss implementation strategies, product roadmap for 2014 and beyond, and the migration of Color IQ from TV to smaller and larger size displays.
