I’ve been attending SID DisplayWeek for about 20 years, here are the press release of 2020, and blog in 2019, and blog in 2018.

In recent several days, I’ve been watching the Keynote from Amazon, Samsung, Adobe, and scan through the exhibitor’s virtual booth, and read technique papers of this year’s SID 2021, here are several hot topics:
