Organic LCD technology - paving the way to flexible displays.

While we have to disappoint many that the OLCD prototype is not for sale, the good news is that the flexible electronics technology behind it is ready to hit the market and be integrated in consumer products. The wrist-worn OLCD demo we showcased at Mobile World Congress has been created as a proof of concept for our OLCD technology, to present the technology to product designers and manufacturers who can use it for the development of consumer products.

You would be forgiven for feeling puzzled at the mention of the term ‘OLCD’ – it is a new technology based on organic backplanes, and FlexEnable is the only company that has proven and industrialised it. Liquid crystal display, or LCD, is the most widely used display technology that accounts for more than 90% of the displays sold today.  However, they are made with glass which limits the ability to flex and the displays and conform to surfaces.  If you replace the glass with ultra-thin plastic, an LCD can be made to bend, by carefully selecting the liquid crystal materials and optimising the assembly process. We have shown we can do just that with our fully industrialised process for organic backplanes and have called the technology organic liquid crystal displays (OLCD).

   OLCD can now achieve the same performance as your TV at home, but on plastic. Moreover, the manufacturing process has been developed to be highly compatible with existing capital equipment used for amorphous silicon LCDs, and using much of the existing materials supply chain making OLCD the lowest cost route to flexible, colour, video-rate displays.

Endless possibilities

The conformable OLCD we demonstrated helps imagine how it can bring extra utility to wearable and mobile devices. For example the flexible display allows you to combine the features of both a smartphone and a smartwatch. So why would you need two devices when you can have one?

This technology is not limited to wearable and mobile devices. It can be integrated into car interiors, digital signage, white goods and other applications that will benefit from creative designs, more functionality and unbreakable screens.

Metalgrass launches a new knowledge hub to focus on Micro-LED displays.

We are happy to announce a new Metalgrass knowledge hub, MicroLED-Info.com. Our new site will focus on Micro-LED display technology and its future market. Micro-LED displays are a promising future display technology, one that should be on the radar of all display experts.

Many expect the first Micro-LED devices to hit the market in the very near future, with first applications in the wearable market - and also in HUDs and HMDs. MicroLED promise great performance, very high efficiency and brightness - but of course there still many technical challenges ahead.

The First Truly Applicable Hologram Tech is Here.

Australian company Euclideon has created the first real multi-user hologram table in the world, and it's going to change gaming, business, and so much more. This new tech solves previous problems with holographic images using motion-tracking glasses.

A working prototype of what will be the first real multi-user hologram table in the world has been created by the Australian company Euclideon. Wearing only a small pair of glasses, up to four people can interact with the table’s holographic images and each other, making this a major advancement from the experience provided by current AR technology. The company estimates that in 2018, the table will be up for sale for $60,000 Australian.

The concept of the hologram table in film and science fiction is hardly new, but because of the many technical difficulties inherent to executing the concept, the idea has yet to be realized. This difficulty originates from the fact that holograms are computer-generated stereo images, dependent on the perspective of the viewer. When a group of people in different positions look at a hologram, the illusion “breaks” as they don’t get the same perspective on it and it doesn’t change as they move. Computer-generated holograms work by tracking the viewer — but which viewer does the computer track when there’s more than one?

Euclideon has solved this riddle in a world’s first — without a gigantic helmet that no one wants to wear, which is the fatal flaw of many multi-user VR/AR systems. After all, it’s hard to interact with your friends if you’re all inside helmets.

The Unlimited Detail (UD) 3D graphics processing engine is what first brought Euclideon renown in the gaming community. The UD engine made it possible for users to be immersed in huge, amazingly detailed, 3D virtual environments, without special graphics cards or high-end computers. And while it didn’t excel with the dynamic motion of objects or physics, its strength in geospatial imaging forms the basis for the new table.

Euclideon’s table requires that users wear only a small, light pair of motion-trackable glasses, which look and feel a lot like 3D glasses. These are much more practical for meetings and social events than huge VR/AR helmets, not to mention more comfortable. As users wear the glasses, the table tracks their eye positions, building a custom image for a potential total of eight user eyes. The table itself is a screen, and the device is made up of projectors that rest beneath a unique film which is sandwiched between two pieces of glass. The result is a mass of mixed up, colored images that the glasses separate out for users, enabling them to see binocular stereo holograms specific to their location.

The glasses themselves have special crystal film layers over them, which can change the frequencies of light waves. When users wear the glasses, the computer can tell which light waves belong to which users. The glasses have small boxes at the temples which contain tiny microcomputers and microchips similar to the VR headset’s tracking jiggers, signaling the user’s position to the table. Euclideon is currently about to begin the manufacturing process and expects their tables to be ready in February of 2018.

1000 Hour Quantum Dot LED Milestone Surpassed by Quantum Materials Corp.

Leading American Cadmium Free Quantum Dot manufacturer Quantum Materials Corp (OTCQB: QTMM) today announced successfully surpassing the 1000 hour continuous on-time durability test for the Company's cadmium-free quantum dots in a remote light emitting diode (LED) application. The testing has been conducted with red and green quantum dots encapsulated in resin and mounted to blue emitting LED's (see diagram below), which are similar to the type of LED's used in standard LCD display back light units (BLU).

The successful implementation of quantum dots with LED's has been slow to progress primarily due to the challenge of achieving the requisite reliability and durability to survive the heat generation inside the LED package without suffering thermal quenching and rapid performance deterioration. The QD-LEDs were under continuous power at 2.5 Volts DC at 70mA and were measured initially, incrementally and at the 1000 hour mark with no measurable degradation of intensity, peak emission or FWHM, which is the measure for color purity. The QD-LED packaged units will continue to be under power and measurements of key performance criteria taken through and beyond the 3000 hour test protocol.

Quantum Materials Corp President and CEO Stephen Squires said, "passing the 1000 hour continuous on time milestone is a major achievement in proving our quantum dot and encapsulation technologies. They are the basis for the next generation of quantum dot solutions to improve the color rendering capability of flat panel displays -- which is moving QD's from the front of the LCD panel to the actual surface of LED's. Our team's ability to keep Quantum Materials on the forefront of nanomaterial implementation and discovery is true testament to their diligence and tireless efforts."

Semiconductor quantum dots have attracted tremendous attention for their unique characteristics for solid state lighting and displays. The pure and tunable spectra of QDs make it possible to simultaneously achieve excellent color rendering properties and high luminous efficiency when combining colloidal QD's with light emitting diodes (LED's) or Micro LEDs. "Achieving 1000 hours of continuous illumination with zero degradation is an extraordinary accomplishment that can move the reality of true QD-LED technology one step closer to reality.

It is even more so when you consider all our materials, regardless of whether they are prototype or production, are produced using our proprietary continuous flow production process enabling seamless scale-up to high volume production," said Toshi Ando, Quantum Materials Corp Senior Director of Business Development.

Mr. Squires concluded that "over the past six months we have made significant progress on our core mission of bringing to market a high performance, reasonably priced cadmium-free quantum dot film solution for large-form LCD display applications and we will report on this in the very near future. While we expect QD-infused film to be the preferred display solution for the next several years, the high heat durability and stability of our QD materials puts us in a strong position to enable the industry to make this transition to QD-LED on-chip solutions when that time comes.

Universal trends in OOH – Location, Location, Location.

OCS (Out-of-Home Consumer Survey) is Posterscope’s proprietary planning tool and an integral part of Posterscope’s planning process across the globe. Since its launch in 2005, it has continued to expand and now encompasses over thirty markets and 100,000+ consumers worldwide.

OCS also allows us to identify key insights that are consistent worldwide, and in turn enable Posterscope to develop its OOH offering to meet these requirements. For example, the importance of context and relevance in OOH is now universally acknowledged, and, in recognition, Posterscope is rolling out its Liveposter product on a global basis. Liveposter offers a unique blend of context and relevance, as it serves engaging messages across multiple OOH locations using triggers such as time, day, and weather.

But which kind of messaging does the consumer really want to see? Based on the views of over 60,000 consumers from nine of Posterscope’s core OCS markets (the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan, Australia, the USA and Singapore), we can see a unanimous trend in the dynamic content that consumers engage with most when it comes to DOOH – Location. On average 60-70% of global consumers engage with contextual DOOH messages relating to the weather, time of day, day of week, seasonal events and live sports updates… but location is the dynamic content type most favoured across all 9 markets without exception. Almost 8 in 10 global consumers state that they are interested in location-based messages on DOOH.

In the UK, location-based messages resonate even more with consumers, and this becomes even further pronounced amongst specific audiences. For instance, 90% of London fashion consumers (“Londoners who are passionate about shopping in store to buy fashion items”) are interested in location-based DOOH content. This type of insight helps to inform and plan successful OOH campaigns, such as Timberland’s recent campaign which ran across shopping malls and high streets in London. Based on the viewer’s location, suggestions were made to visit a local store or landmark, along with relevant statistics such as distance, number of steps required, and calories burned, whilst promoting the unique comfort of the new Sensorflex product.

Monterey Bay Aquarium Entertains Pedestrians with Interactive Bus Shelter Screens

Located on historic Cannery Row in a former sardine cannery near Carmel and Pebble Beach, California, Monterey Bay Aquarium has been delighting families with marine-centric exhibits like Mission to the Deep and The Jellies Experience since 1984. And even if you haven’t made the trip in person, you’ve probably seen the aquarium dressed up as Sausalito’s Cetacean Institute in the 1986 film Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home—yes, the one with the whales. Well, marine science and seemingly futuristic technology are colliding yet again around the Monterey Bay Aquarium as it promotes its “Share the Love” campaign with custom-built, state-of-the-art interactive bus shelters in two custom creative executions.

One of these deployments is called Silhouette Moments. Users are prompted to strike a pose, show their best dances moves or get in their favorite yoga position before the camera snaps them and superimposes their silhouette over an undulating school of fish.

The other execution is known as Colorful Conversations, and said conversation is actually with an animated cuttlefish via digital display text. Inspired by a previous art project, semi-local Creative Director and Advertising Architect Chris Szadkowski employed the cuttlefish for its real-life camouflage and color-shifting communication ability.  When pedestrians interact with the bus shelter screens, the cuttlefish mimics the color of the onlooker’s clothing before offering up a playful quip like “Who Wore it Better? Kidding (Not Kidding).”

On top of helping to promote Monterey Bay Aquarium’s self-guided tours through its 200+ award-winning aquatic exhibits and galleries, this interactive ad campaign is a great example of how to reduce perceived wait times at bus stops for all ages.

Coca-Cola’s Giant New Robotic LED Board In NYC.

More information is dribbling out about that giant robotic 3D LED board Coca-Cola switched on last week in Times Square. The vendor list is long, and the one most familiar to the digital signage community is Convergent, which is listed as doing Technology Design and Implementation, Content Management and Monitoring Services. If I was expressly in the LED board business several of these others would likely be familiar. The beverage giant says, in a company story: The 68-ft. by 42-.ft. sign required sophisticated engineering and rigorous testing for all weather conditions. Every high-resolution LED cube is programmed to independently extend and retract, extending out into the crowd and bringing the company’s portfolio of beverages to life in a way the team hopes will inspire thirsty onlookers to crave an ice-cold Coca-Cola. 

The video here is a Coke-produced piece that shows the robotic LED blocks doing their thing.

A separate video that shows the big LED beast has some issues more apparent at night – with LED blocks here and there not quite in sync. That’s going to happen with something this big, and there’s no way to soft-launch something like this. You turn it on, and tweak, tweak, tweak.

The crossroads of the world is now home to the world’s first and largest 3D robotic sign. Coca-Cola this week unveiled a new six-story digital spectacular in Times Square featuring 1,760 independently moving LED screens, choreographed to the content on display – creating a multisensory experience for the 300,000 people who pass through the busy Manhattan intersection each day.

Global outlook and trends

DOOH versus OOH
These are the headline findings in ‘Why Out Of Home Performs’, a joint study by Magna Intelligence and Rapport, IPG Mediabrand’s out-of-home agency, into OOH’s continued growth and impact. The report was based on findings from a survey carried out in 22 key markets including eight in Asia-Pacific: Australia, China, India, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.

Read more at: http://www.campaignasia.com/article/30-digital-growth-sustaining-ooh-market-magna-report-with-apac-breakdown/438716

The OOH market was worth $28 billion in net advertising revenues in 2016, according to Magna’s report, and is predicted to grow by 4 percent per year to reach $33 billion by 2021. This puts its current share of the overall traditional media market at 10 percent, up from 8 percent. Behind this growth is an ever-more concentrated supply-side market, in which the top international OOH media owners are continuing to expand their influence: the six main global vendors (in order of 2016 revenue size, JCDecaux, Clear Channel, Outfront, Lamar, Stroer and Exterior) now control almost 40 percent of the whole market (see graph, below). By 2021, the report predicts small but significant changes in the environments most used for OOH. Use of billboards, currently the top revenue-generating segment and performing particularly well in India, Russia and the US, will drop 4 percent from 45 to 41 in the next five years. Street furniture and transit, meanwhile, are due to grow, respectively, from 31 to 34 percent and from 14 to 15 percent as local authorities become more willing to partner with OOH vendors. A series of major contracts—typically over 10 years long—in big cities are also in the process of renewal, the first time this has happened in the era of DOOH and programmatic opportunities, which partly explains DOOH’s recent giant revenue leap.

Customers can also return them at a store or by mail if they need to.

It is not yet know when, or if, the vending machines will be available in Uniqlo’s UK market, where it operates 10 stores.

The Japanese retailer is currently the world’s third largest retailer behind both Zara and H&M.

DOOH and mobile 'are converging'

Out-of-home media is attracting some unexpected advertisers as the medium’s digital capabilities expand and the possibilities grow for a more creative approach using real-time and contextually relevant content.

David McEvoy, director of marketing at outdoor advertising firm JCDecaux, observed that the internet giants Google and Facebook are now among the biggest spenders in out-of-home.

“Their digital platforms are built on smart, short-form, autoplay video ads where sound isn’t initiated and that’s exactly what digital out-of-home is now offering at large scale,”

“Out-of-home and mobile will continue to converge; there’s barely any differences and the Facebooks of this world are realising this.”

That process is helping OOH’s position as one of the very few traditional media channels to withstand the impact of digital and mobile, as it continues to grow – at 4.5% to £1.1bn in the UK last year.

The advent of digital OOH revolutionised the industry; throw in the location-tracking made possible by smartphones and the growth of programmatic and all sorts of new options are opening up.

A recent campaign for energy company E.ON, for example, geofenced OOH sites and then later served audio ads via the DAX platform to those consumers it had identified as having seen the poster: brand consideration increased 26% among these consumers, while likelihood to recommend climbed 31%.

Programmatic, meanwhile, is about more than simply automation of processes, according to Cadi Jones, commercial innovation director at Clear Channel.

“It’s about connecting brands more effectively with their audiences by allowing them to deliver the right message to the right audience at the right time,” she said.

“Ultimately, programmatic can revolutionise out-of-home – making it as flexible, measurable and creative as other media.

“It brings down buying barriers, making out-of-home even easier to buy,” she said. “This will bring new spend to out-of-home from ‘digital’ budgets and programmatic buyers, helping to grow out-of-home’s share of the media spend.”

Micro LEDs

Korean researchers at the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials are checking samples of micro LED displays made with roll to roll transfer process equipment.

A mass production technology of micro LEDs, which are attracting attention as a next generation display after organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), was developed by Korean researchers.

The Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials (KIMM) under the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning announced on July 24 that the institute developed technology of manufacturing micro-LED (LED) display using 'roll transfer process' for the first time in the world.

Using a roll to roll transfer process, the Nano Applied Mechanics Team at the institute developed technology to produce 'micro LED displays', which have luminous efficacy three times higher and a 50% reduction of power consumption.

Using this research result, it will be possible to manufacture micro LED displays, which are attracting attention as next generation displays such as transparent displays with high mechanical reliability and can be changed freely, 10,000 times faster than conventional LED displays.

The roll to roll transfer process is a technology whose patent belong to the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials. The TFT element is lifted and put on the desired substrate like putting ink on a roll, and the LED element is lifted up and placed on the substrate on which the TFT element is placed, completing an active matrix type micro LED display of a structure in which the two elements are combined.

Production speeds have been dramatically improved as production steps have been cut down. Current die bonder equipment, which makes conventional LED displays, can mount 1 to 10 LEDs on a substrate per second but through roll transfer technology more than 10,000 LEDs can be transferred per second. It takes more than 30 days to produce a full-HD 2-megapixel 100-inch digital signage via the current method, but the roll transfer process can finish the process within an hour and substantially slash process cost.

According to market research firm Market and Market, the micro LED market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 54.7% from US$ 250 million in 2017 to US$ 19.92 billion in 2025. The display sector is expected to account for 98% of the total micro LED market in 2025.

LG OLED raises the Lotte World Tower experience even higher.

At 555 meters/1,821 feet/123 stories tall, Lotte Tower is the world’s fifth tallest building. This skyscraping multiplex in Seoul hosts an observatory, a shopping mall, offices and a hotel, as well as a steady flood of visitors. Over four million people are expected to visit the building for the countless attractions it offers, but there’s a specific spot which is a favorite to all.

That spot is Seoul Sky, home to the world’s highest glass-floored sky deck observatory. To get to Seoul Sky, visitors step onboard Sky Shuttle, the world’s fastest double-deck elevator wrapped in a spectacular video wall made by LG.

Sky Shuttle passengers are treated to a minute-long ride that’s built to thrill, because the elevator is lined top to bottom with 55-inch LG OLED panels, three on each side and six on the ceiling, presenting an amazing high-definition display of the beautiful and ever-changing scenery of Seoul.

LG OLED technology delivers perfect black, infinite contrast and intense, accurate colors—perfect for immersing the passengers in an incredibly vivid experience. And because the LG OLED panels are unbelievably thin and lightweight, they don’t weigh the elevator down or take up room, allowing the Sky Shuttle to carry more people faster.

Down below, the Lotte World Mall attracts visitors with 40, 84-inch wide LG UHD LCD displays. LG’s In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology provides a wide viewing angle where colors remain true-to-life and text reads clearly to attract and engage visitors all throughout the large space.

The Lotte PR room also features LG digital signage, with a 1×6 video wall showing live surrounding scenery from CCTV camera feeds, supplemented with weather details and safety information.

Another place of interest at Lotte World Tower is Signiel Seoul, a premium hotel with breathtaking views of Seoul’s magnificent skyline. LG 60-inch hospitality TVs adorn the guest rooms, mounted on the wall so as to best complement the interior design.

With world-class technological capability and artistic potential, the global landmark Lotte World Tower chose LG to enhance the versatile space. And as LG has noted, the signage you choose has the power to move hearts and minds.
