MicroLED Displays: Hype and Reality, Hopes and Challenges – Webcast

MicroLED displays could potentially match or exceed OLED performance in all critical attributes such as brightness, contrast, color gamut, refresh rate, viewing angle, ruggedness and durability, resolution and pixel density, lifetime, power consumption etc.

Development started in the early 2000’s but only got its first public exposure when Sony presented the first 55” microLED TV at the 2012 CES. While the prototype was never commercialized, the hype kept growing after Apple acquired microLED startup Luxvue in 2014. Since then, investments and the number of companies involved in microLED development have skyrocketed. So how long will we have to wait until we see the first consumer applications? The science is here, but microLED is an inherently complex technology with cost drivers very different from those of incumbents OLED and LCD. This webcast will provide an update on the status of the microLED industry, with a focus on activity at major players, remaining technology and supply chain bottlenecks. Cost aspects will also be discussed as well as an assessment of when products can realistically be expected to hit the market.

Yole Développement invites you to watch this special webcast now.
