Curved TVs flood the CES 2014

Jan 8, 2014

I’ve been at CES 2014 for 3 days by now. One big trend this year is: curved TV.

As we reported 2 days ago, Samsung showcased their curved TV and bendable TV at Monday’s press conference.

LG’s booth is also full of curved TVs. The most attractive one is the 77” 4K flexible OLED TV, which they claim is the world’s first 77” flexible 4K OLED TV. I think that is true.

Many other TV suppliers also showcased curved TV at this CES, such as Hisense, Haier, Konka, Panasonic.

Curved TVs provide a unique form factor and cinema-like immersive view. We believe the ecosystem of flexible and curved displays is maturing. Good progress has been made in many areas. TFT on plastic substrate is already commercialized; ultra-thin glass is commercially available; ITO-replacement material is in mass production; bond de-bond and roll-to-roll manufacturing processes and equipment used for flexible displays are more precise.

In our recently published Flexible and curved display and lighting report, Touch Display Research forecasts that the flexible and curved display market will reach $27 Billion by 2023.

CES 2014 Hisense showcase quantum dot 4K TV

Jan 7, 2014

I’m at Las Vegas for CES 2014 currently. Yesterday is the press release day. Today is the first day of the exhibition.

Hisense showcased a quantum dot 4K TV. It’s 85″ with wide color gamut and good optical efficiency.  I had a chance to meet Mr. Qiao, Chief Technology Supervisor at Display department of Hisense. He said “Our quantum dot TV is ready for mass production this year if we receive order.”

Quantum dot could improve the color gamut, color accuracy and reduce power consumption of LCD. Nanosys, 3M, QD Vision are already mass producing quantum dot material and components.

Touch Display Research forecast quantum dot display and lighting component market will reach $9.6 Billion by 2023.
