Display Week 2012 is underway! The skies of Boston are gray, so it's an excellent day to stay inside and learn something.
Today' 4-hour "short courses" cover fundamentals in OLED lighting technology, flexible displays, touch technology and applications, and active-matrix devices and applications. These short courses, presented by world-reknowned experts in their fields, are a great way to build or strengthen your understanding of a particular area of display technology.
Tomorrow's lineup includes 20 applications and technology seminars on topics ranging from 3D Computer Vision to Micro-second Response Time in Blue-Phase LCDs, as well as the Business Conference and the Investors Conference. Topics to be covered in both conferences are very timely, and I'm particularly intrigued by "Do OLEDs and TFT-Oxides Change the Display Market Outlook?," which is being presented at 11:15 in tomorrow's Business Conference.
In case you hadn't already heard, The International Committee for Display Metrology (ICDM) and the Society for Information Display (SID) have announced the release of the Information Display Measurements Standard (IDMS. The IDMS is a much-needed document that will provide standard measurement procedures to quantify electronic display characteristics and qualities. It has been a long time in the making and it's exciting that it's going to be available at Display Week this year. A very limited number of copies will be available for sale at the SID book store at the show (so get there soon!), but the standard will also be available as a free download from the ICDM home site at www.icdm-sid.org as well as the SID website at www.sid.org. --Jenny Donelan, Managing Editor, ID magazine
