Japan Display Inc. ( JDI ) 17″ 8K4K LTPS TFT LCD Display is the proud recipient of the 2016 Display of the Year Award from the Society of Information Display (SID) This award is granted to a display product that incorporates the most significant technological advances or outstanding features, and is one award among SID’s Display Industry Awards which are the display industry’s most prestigious honor, given annually since 1995 to recognize the best display products or applications introduced to the market during the previous calendar year. The awards are announced and presented at Display Week, the annual SID International Symposium, Seminar and Exhibition.
The Display of the Year Award recognized JDI’s development of the world’s first 17.3-in., high-resolution (7,680 x 4,320 pixels), fast-response (120Hz frame rate) liquid-crystal display module, introduced October 1, 2015. The module provides life-like imagery that offers an immersive sense of depth, enabled by its smooth playback of moving images and high resolution picture quality.
The 17.3-in. size is a standard for monitors used in video image production, with 8K technology expected to lead to the next-generation frontier. It is noteworthy that the Japan Broadcasting Company (NHK) has been a proponent of 8K broadcasting for several years, and many sources report that 8K will be used to broadcast the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. High-resolution modules like JDI’s are set to take advantage of this broadcast technology.
As we strive for further improvement, JDI has developed a low power consumption version with advanced LTPS technology. Both displays, the original award winning 17″ display and the new 17″ low power consumption version, will be demonstrated in JDI’s booth #917 at SID’s Display Week at the Moscone Convention Center, May 22 – May 27, 2016, in San.Francisco, California, USA.
