Applied’s James Xiao, VP & GM, Display CVD & EPG, reviews the recently launched thin film encapsulation systems for enabling the volume production of high-resolution, thin and lightweight flexible OLED displays for mobile products and TVs.
For the next installment in my display survey series, I will focus on advanced display technologies coming down the pipeline and how materials engineering solutions will enable tomorrow’s TVs and mobile devices to be flexible, bendable and foldable.
Our display survey revealed a consumer sentiment that should surprise no one: cracked mobile screens are a big problem worldwide. Applied is working closely with customers and others in the industry to develop manufacturing technologies that not only deliver high-quality, power-efficient mobile displays, but also enable more durable screens that can withstand being dropped and can better endure wear-and-tear over time.
This next post in our series examines consumer attitudes towards TV displays with a focus on screen sizes and key trends coming out of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.Not surprisingly, our recent consumer survey showed that bigger is better: respondents worldwide desire big flat screens.
As a leading flat panel display equipment manufacturer driving the industry roadmap, Applied Materials commissioned an international survey of consumers to solicit general attitudes and preferences for mobile displays and flat screen TVs. Insightful and a bit surprising, the results highlight the features consumers want most.
