SID Dispatch Debuts

By Dr. Yong-Seog Kim

Welcome to the first post of SID Dispatch from the Society for Information Display (SID). First of all I want to thank IEEE for providing us with such a prestigious global forum. While this post is more introductory in scope, subsequent stories will be authored by SID members worldwide and will focus on innovative display technologies, processes, issues and trends.

SID has a long tradition going back more than 50 years of showcasing new technology and display products. From the founding meeting held on Sept. 29, 1962 at UCLA, SID has since grown into a truly global organization with chapters throughout the Americas, Asia and Europe. SID is the only professional organization solely focused on the display industry and provides a unique platform for industry collaboration, communication and training. Members are professionals in technical/business disciplines that include display research, design, manufacturing, applications, marketing and sales.

SID hosts more than 10 conferences annually, the largest of which is the annual Display Week. This year’s 53rd annual Display Week, held in San Francisco, brought under one roof more than 7,000 attendees. Literally hundreds of experts shared their knowledge and expertise at scores of well-attended sessions.  Some of the topics covered included:

·         Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality Displays

·         Automotive and Wearable Display Technology

·         Bended/Flexible Displays

·         Innovative Interaction Technology

·         OLED TVs

·         Quantum Dot Displays

And briefly, some other Display Week highlights included a first-ever CMO Forum discussion, with leading industry experts, that centered specifically on the marketing challenges and trends unique to display technology. Another first - the New Product Showcase, where exhibitors were invited to share their hottest products in a dedicated space. Lastly, the annual Innovation Zone (I-Zone) has been providing free space for innovators to showcase the latest technology before it hits the marketplace.

Ours is an exciting and vibrant industry, and I hope you’ll come to Los Angeles next May for Display Week 2017 to learn more. In the meantime, look to SID Dispatch to glean more insights into the global display market, which is expected to grow to more than$150 billion by 2020. Thank you!
