Opportunities in 3D, Touch, Pico Projectors, E-Paper, OLED and More to be Addressed at Upcoming DisplaySearch Emerging Display Technologies Conference
Preliminary Agenda Announcement
Santa Clara, Calif., July 8, 2010—DisplaySearch today announced the preliminary agenda for its upcoming Emerging Display Technologies Conference: Innovative Technologies Drive Growth Opportunities, which will be held on August 19, 2010 in San Jose, California. The conference will take a closer look at the status of emerging technologies such as touch screens, 3D displays, pocket projectors, OLED, e-paper and other emerging display technologies—providing a forum for further discussion of how these new technologies will drive display industry growth.
“With 2010 bringing a new wave of electronic devices with 3D displays, the emergence of slate PCs like Apple’s iPad, increasing commercialization of pocket projectors, and continued momentum in e-readers, the Emerging Display Technologies Conference couldn’t be taking place at a better time,” noted Jennifer Colegrove, PhD, DisplaySearch Director of Display Technologies. “This year’s event will provide attendees with a clearer picture of what lies ahead for these sectors.”
Kicking off the conference, Colegrove will provide an overview and market forecast for hot new display technologies such as touch screens, 3D displays, pocket projectors, OLED displays, e-paper and more.
With three, information-rich sessions, the DisplaySearch Emerging Display Technologies Conference has confirmed these speakers:
With touch screens forecast to reach $14 billion in revenue by 2016, the opportunities that this segment affords are promising as new touch screen technologies reach commercialization. Speakers will discuss multi-touch, new touch screen technologies, and solutions for the market.
- Mark Mendenhall, President, Elo TouchSystems
- Jeff Hahn, Founder, Perceptive Pixel
- Vincent John Vincent, President and Co-Founder, GestureTek
