UBI Research plans to hold the 3rd OLED KOREA Conference with the theme of “Lessons from History and How OLED Can Evolve” at Novotel Ambassador Hotel on Mar. 8 (Wed) to 9 (Thu).

The OLED industry is expected to grow rapidly according to the adaption of full-driven OLED panels by Sony and Apple in 2017 and the competition among panels, equipment, and manufacturing companies can be intensified at the same time. It is necessary to understand and respond strategically to industry trends for successful business under such circumstances. The opportunities to share ideas and concerns each other and close exchanges between Industry-academic institute, panel, materials and equipment companies have been required. UBI Research has prepared a place to freely exchange various information and opinions through the 3rd OLED Korea Conference by reflecting such needs of the industry.

The Korea Conference will be an opportunity to analyze the past trends of OLED which the usage and application range is getting wider and to discuss the successful advancement and strategies to grow the OLED industry for the future. Therefore, it will be a valuable time to practically help the OLED industry.

The Presentation is planned by twenty-four (24) domestic/international experts related to OLED display such as set and panel makers, materials/equipment companies, university/research etc. including UBI Research, Samsung Display, Cynora and CEREBA about followings:

▲Exploring new opportunities with OLED and the preparation, ▲Possible directions and the reasoning for OLED, ▲Lessons from the history and how OLED can be evolved, ▲OLED and its collaboration, investigating the possibilities

We will establish the opportunity to contribute to the growth of the OLED industry based on the sharing of mutual opinions by preparing a networking space between the companies through luncheon during the conference period and breakfast with OLED reception.

Kateeva today announced two executive promotions: Conor Madigan, Ph.D. adds Chief Operating Officer (COO) to his current role of President, and Eli Vronsky becomes Chief Product Officer.
Kateeva Chairman and CEO Alain Harrus called Madigan and Vronsky highly accomplished technology experts with strong leadership authority. “Their independent skillsets are extraordinary; together, they’re a powerhouse,” he said. “Nurturing Kateeva from its earliest days, they relentlessly executed on a vision to enable unimaginable display technology innovation. Yet while they disrupted the display industry with a breakthrough production equipment solution, they applied practical business skills along the way, building solid teams, creating best practices, and fostering a corporate culture that guided Kateeva from startup to today’s strong technology company. The Board and I are thrilled to expand their roles.”
Madigan adds global customer satisfaction to his new responsibilities as President and COO. This includes field operations in Korea, China, Taiwan, and Japan. He will continue to manage global marketing and manufacturing, as well as Kateeva’s research and development organization, which incorporates new product development and technology innovations. Also, he’ll lead Kateeva’s expanding Intellectual Property (IP) department – a role he’s held since the company’s inception. This core unit safeguards the ongoing innovations that are empowering Kateeva’s YIELDjet™ products for highest performance in flexible OLED mass-production fabs, and contributing to the development of next-generation products. Madigan co-founded Kateeva in 2008. He reports to Harrus.
As Chief Product Officer, Vronsky owns Kateeva’s product development organization, and leads the company’s high-powered engineering team. An expert in printer technology, Vronsky is chief architect of the fundamental YIELDjet printing system architecture, including the revolutionary process monitoring systems and printing algorithms that helped make Kateeva’s YIELDjet platform the world’s first mass-production-worthy inkjet printer for flexible OLEDs. When it debuted in 2013, the technology provided the breakthrough that liberated display manufacturers from the rigid constraints of glass substrates, to spark the flexible OLED revolution. Much of Kateeva’s highest-value customer-enabling IP surrounds Vronsky’s inventions. Today, he’s applying the same innovation to Kateeva’s new product initiatives. He joined Kateeva in 2008. Previously, he was Executive Vice President of Product Development. He reports to Madigan.
