The year 2018 is a very special one for us – and the LCD community. At Display Week 2018 of the International Society for Information Display (SID) there will be more than one outstanding reason to celebrate. We will as for many consecutive years be a part of it, when from May 20th to 25th, 2018, global players and newcomers gather for their major business meeting at the Los Angeles Convention Center. And together we will celebrate the decisive years of 1668, 1888, 1968 and significant developments in between, showcase exciting innovations of the present, and take a curious look into the promising future of LCD monitors and LCD panels.
In memory of our origins in 1668 we this year celebrate our 350th anniversary – and a history filled with contributions to further advance science. No wonder, we also played a substantial role in the history of liquid crystals which were first described 130 years ago in 1888 and used for the construction of the first liquid crystal display (LCD) 50 years ago in 1968.
We took no inconsiderable part in the research and development of liquid crystals – as the material itself has been part of our portfolio for more than 110 years. However, we are always aware of the fact that innovation is only possible through close cooperation and partnership.
And development continues steadily – as can be seen at Display Week. We develop new and further optimized high performance LC singles, contributing to the extraordinary requirements regarding high transmission, high contrast and high reliability – just to name a few important targets. Meet our experts at booth 529, hear from them in lectures about the “(r)evolution of displays”, and obtain the latest technical information on new developments in the field of Vertically Aligned technologies SA-VA and PS-VA. There you can also learn more about our broad portfolio of display solutions like OLED and quantum materials or materials for premium pattering processes. You can also see new applications of liquid crystals beyond LCDs and how our technology licrivision™ contributes to switchable sun protection and privacy.
As curious as we are? Then come and see us in our booth 529 between May 22nd and 24th, 2018. We are looking forward to seeing you and celebrating these significant anniversaries with you.
