Take a look at the future of displays being developed in Japan
The hardware presented by Japan Display, Incorporated is particularly interesting. The company was formed by Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba earlier this year, after the companies announced late last year of their plans to integrate their small and medium sized LCD panel businesses.
On display at FPD 2012 were several units, one of which was a 5-inch 1080p panel boasting 438ppi and billed as a smartphone display. Next to it was a 7-inch, 2560x1600, 431ppi tablet display. The display modules are only 0.96mm thick and the boarders are only measuring 1mm. They feature WhiteMagic to aid with power consumption by adding an extra white pixel. That pixel can also make the screen brighter. From a power consumption standpoint, JDI claims the WhiteMagic technology reduces power consumption by as much as 40%. Pixel Eyes was a product also on display which is a fully integrated touchscreen, rather than an attached layer on the panel.
Also on show were displays that have similar properties to what Amazon unveiled with their Kindle Paperwhite. These LCDs do not have a backlight, instead, they reflect the ambient light back to the user. Unlike Paperwhite, these units can display color and video.
JDI is planning to put several of these panels into mass production next year. Check out the videos below and awe at how thin and clear these displays are.
