Digitimes Research: Panel makers focus on high-end and larger-size displays during Touch Taiwan 2013
Jen-Chieh Yang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Monday 2 September 2013]

Trends in the panel industry show that panel makers are continuing to put their focus on high resolution panels, including Ultra HD and IGZO panels, as well as larger-size TFT LCD displays, according to Digitimes Research.

Digitimes Research said such trends were displayed at the Touch Taiwan 2013 exhibition, which featured panel makers such as AU Optronics (AUO), Innolux and China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT).

All three of the makers sported Ultra HD TV panel technology, with CSOT exhibiting a 110-inch unit, the largest at Touch Taiwan and currently the largest Ultra HD TV panel unit in the industry. CSOT also displayed a 32-inch Ultra HD display featuring IGZO technology.

Digitimes Research also sees a trend from panel makers using Ultra HD TV panels as a means to maintain Full HD image quality when viewing 3D images. This gives advantages over Full HD TV panels using Pattern Retarder technology, which lose image quality when viewing 3D images.

Panel makers are also increasing the size of panels used in digital signage and industrial applications, and are making more efforts to reduce bezel sizes while increasing their value-added features, noted Digitimes Research.
