From SID 2003 preview:


It looks like the entire LCD market has shifted from the IT markets to the home entertainment market. Over the next 3 years the largest growth of all is expected to be large AMLCD TV’s.


As for prices, well the SID report shows a nice chart of production costs for 40†plasma versus 40†LCD from 2001 to 2010. It is a nice (past-present-future) representation of plasma vs LCD production cost although it doesn’t quit go too far into the past.


Anyways, it shows a nice negative exponential curve for LCDs while plasma is a straight line. Both curves meet in mid – 2003 and from that point on remain similar through 2010.


From 2001 to 2003 LCD panel production costs dropped from 6500$ to 1100$ per panel while Plasma dropped from about 1600$ to 1000$ per panel.


LCD are expected to outsell CRTs on a unit basis for the first time in 2004.



Now for some cool stuff:


They mention a prototype theatre projector that was projecting onto a 320†screen. It has 4 LCD screens (8 megapixels each 3840X2048) which is the equivalent of 16HDTVs in a 4X4 matrix.


The image is progressively scanned (4000 lines per frame)

The projector throws 5000lm producing a screen luminance of 50nits


Also there is a nice article on FOLED


It’s old news but newbies can see a nice video clip of a working model at http://www.universaldisplay.com
