The latest development of large-size panel technology for TV applications still focuses on improving color saturation and dynamic contrast, especially in light of the adoption of mini LED backlight modules, Digitimes Research has found.
Judging from the display devices showcased at the recently concluded SID 2020 virtual event, related technology developments for IT applications is focusing on improvement of response speed to meet the needs of e-sports.
Products exhibited on the virtual show also highlighted that major panel makers are optimizing TV-use display technologies for developing automotive applications, and are also extending the use of flexible AMOLED panels to IT and TV applications beyond current mainstream handset applications.
While previous trial production of micro LED panels had been constrained to small- to medium-size applications, Taiwan-based AU Optronics (AUO) showcased a 12.1-inch micro LED panel and a 9.4-inch flexible micro LED panel, paving the way for developing related panels for large-size applications, Digitimes Research believes.
LG Display highlighted its automotive panels built with AMOLED technologies.
