Direct view LED in Cinema.

LED displays and full digital visualization solutions are moving forward at an accelerated rate as technology advances. These advancements in display technology are leading to increased reliability with decreased weight, as well as greater efficacy and an improved picture quality. The picture quality improvements in particular have transformed digital signage to the point where it now rivals the quality seen on the best LCD and OLED TVs. Direct-view LED displays, long considered competitive only in digital signage, are on the threshold of becoming competitive with DLP by Digital Cinema Initiative standards, and with such continuous improvements in RGB SMD LED displays, a new large integrators market may be on the horizon. This market could potentially be worth $10 billion over the next 10 years!

The current Digital Cinema Initiative started with the “opportunity” provided by the Texas Instruments DLP device and the total cinema system solution. That system, first demonstrated in 1996 and launched in 1999, has led to more than 144,000 DLP Digital Cinema installations. These systems were installed over a 20-year period, as cinema transitioned from film to digital projections, and LED can now at last rival DLP in every regard. When direct-view LED displays address the LED performance capabilities of high dynamic range, improved contrast ratio, higher brightness, wider color gamut, and motion processing in a compliant manner, a revolution of DLP replacements could occur.

Imagine the new business opportunities that will be created as hundreds, then thousands, of DLP Cinema systems are replaced every year by LED displays. These replacements will often include dramatic refurbishment of the system solution as well, and the LED display will of course change from DLP projection to direct view LED. The audio systems will incorporate new psychoacoustics and speaker systems to manage the different audio performance of the LED screen over the projection screen, and the same theater auditoriums will also be modified to provide a unique experience never before achievable with DLP projection. This “Active Screen experience,” has ahead of it a deterministic technology development path to attain and surpass these goals. With the help of studios and cinematographers, countless things will become possible with direct-view LED in cinema.

The technical requirements for a cinema quality display are, as of right now, party to industry specifications. However, the actual acceptance of a new display solution that can replace the current deeply entrenched DLP solution will be driven by the experts in the movie and storytelling business. DLP went through years of assessment and improvement to support the experts’ requirements to transition from film to digital projection cinema. The steps toward direct-view LED cinema will require a similar process. Experts and standards groups must come together with cinematographers and studios to assure that the end result, “a story well told,” is attained and (ideally) enhanced beyond current DLP.

Emissive displays like LED have visually perceivable characteristics far different from those of a DLP projector on a screen. The creative experts (and audiences) are only interested in the final image and the impression it makes, so all the factors that impact that image must be considered in order to create films that capture true life. The list of challenges is significant, but not overwhelming.

LED display has limitations to overcome, but each of these seems possible. The final image looks and feels compelling to cinematographers and movie theater experts, but that is a hard metric to quantify. An active screen is different than a projected image, and reliability and maintenance must align to normal theater maintenance. Additionally, any visible structure in the screen must be mitigated, so fixed pattern noise is invisible to the viewer. Perhaps most importantly, the cost of the LED display must approach that of the DLP.

One new attribute of LED display is that it can be curved. A curved screen from projection can be dramatically improved upon by an emissive LED display solution with no issues of focus or keystone. The LED display image can also be enhanced with periodic calibration to assure image quality is always in spec. The commercial display industry has an exciting new market emerging in LED display for the highest performance solutions. With challenges overcome, installations and support of thousands of new displays will transform the experience in entertainment and cinema.

Amey pioneers hyper-real simulation training to wake drivers up to danger.

Leading infrastructure services firm Amey has launched a new virtual reality tool to wake drivers up to the dangers of falling asleep at the wheel.

The cutting edge new driver training simulator – to be offered as part of a suite of training to the firm’s 13,000 drivers across the UK - combines 360 degree sights, sensations and movements in a way more traditionally associated with the gaming industry.

The venture into totally immersive experience training is believed to be a first in the infrastructure industry as the company pursues ever greater safety performance across all its 300-plus client contracts.

Developed as part of a creative technology incubation project with global experience design company Holovis, Amey’s innovative new kit was unveiled to more than 100 company fleet and transport managers and suppliers at its Fleet and Plant Transport Conference in Oxford on October 11 and 12.

Barco ClickShare CSE-800 Product demonstration.

DSCC updates their OLED forecasts up, sees over $60 billion in revenues by 2022.

Market research company DSCC has updated their OLED models, as the company sees more capital spending then before and a larger OLED market going forward.

The OLED market in general will grow 57% in 2017, according to DSCC, to reach $23.2 billion. Growth will continue to be strong with a 50% increase in 2018 (to $34.9 billion) and a CAGR of 27% from 2016 to 2022. In 2022 the market will surpass $60 billion.

Specifically for the OLED TV market, DSCC sees LG increasing its capacity and shifting its product mix to meet demand. OLED TV panel shipments will grow at a CAGR of 49% between 2016 to 2022 to reach 9.5 million units (and $5.9 billion in sales).

The main market for OLED displays will remain smartphone displays - in 2022 this market segment alone will generate $54 billion in revenues - with a market share of at least 85%. OLED technology will overtake LCD in 2020 and by 2027 all smartphones will adopt OLED displays - apparently DSCC does not believe in any next-gen display technology that may replace OLED or at least compete with OLEDs in the future...
