VividColor Open license for HDR and Micro-LED development announced at DisplayWeek 2018

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- At  SID DisplayWeek 2018 in Los Angeles CA, PixelDisplay CTO/President Mr. David Wyatt, will be presenting at the SID/DSCC Investor Conference. PixelDisplay will also be demonstrating VividColor HDR™ enabled displays at Booth 1434, in the SID Exhibition hall. Some of the key-points:

  • Serving a $750mil/yr component-market for portable HDR devices in 2019.
  • Proliferating HDR-capable displays, with an Open license for faster-ramp.
  • Inviting early partners on 2D-Array Mini-LED backlight and Micro-LED applications, bringing OLED-like dynamic contrast at LCD-like costs, to wearables, smartphones, automotive, cinema-sized displays.
  • Reduced-blue displays, retaining efficiency and widest color gamut, while mitigating health concerns associated with blue light from LED, QD and OLED.
  • Environmentally friendlier without Cadmium, or heavy metals. Better than "RoHS compliant."

Making Colorful More Full Of Color

At DisplayWeek, PixelDisplay will be demonstrating VividColor HDR side-by-side with Quantum Dots (QD), but with VividColor applied directly "on-die," in standard LED-edge-lit LCD - a feat not possible with QD's due sensitivity to temperature, humidity, and photo-oxidization. PixelDisplay will also be demonstrating a "Roll-to-roll" film-stack version, for Mini-LED.

PixelDisplay is launching an Open licensing program: enabling makers of In/GaN-based LED/MiniLED/MicroLED's, to collaboratively apply VividColor technology, meet the new customer requirements (at lower cost-points than QD, KSF or OLED), and adapt to the evolving needs of Micro-LED displays.

David Wyatt commented: "We launched VividColor at last year's DisplayWeek with a prototype LED, able to achieve an industry-leading 97.8% Rec.2020. This year we're showing working displays. We believe this approach carries many fundamental improvements, and now invite wider participation. We have limits on how many adopters we can support at this phase, but we welcome partners capable of working with us to build and test evaluation samples this year." Wyatt summarized, "VividColor enables portable device makers to meet and exceed the logo requirements of VESA's DisplayHDR, and UHD-Alliance's MobileHDR, without thickness-adding/bezel-widening QD-films, brightness or battery-life compromises. And scales to the light-flux-densities, temperatures, and methods, needed for MicroLED applications." Wyatt continued, "And unlike KSF narrow-band-phosphors, VividColor is also HDR and Mini-LED PWM compatible, able to drive the fast bright dynamic control at sub-frame microsecond speeds, without needing color-shift digital-workarounds."

Wyatt concluded, "Ooyala surveys reveal more than half the eyeballs are switching to watch their content on portable devices. The timing feels right to be opening up more portable-friendly solutions. If this market matches HDR on TV's, we estimate the unserved need as initially worth upwards of $750mil/yr in HDR-LED's. We're delighted to be helping fill the gap, and extend into the $20bil projected market for MicroLED's, where other solutions have tried and failed."

Kubernetes as a Container Platform is becoming a de facto for every enterprise. In my interactions with enterprises adopting container platform, I come across common questions: - How does application security work on this platform? What all do I need to secure? - How do I implement security in pipelines? - What about vulnerabilities discovered at a later point in time? - What are newer technologies like Istio Service Mesh bring to table?In this session, I will be addressing these commonly asked ...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches.

In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
When you're operating multiple services in production, building out forensics tools such as monitoring and observability becomes essential.

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.
