Panasonic's transparent display is hard for your eyes to believe "Transparent displays aren't really new in the technology industry, but this year at CES we're seeing some pretty amazing examples of them. There's LG's 18-inch display, which you can roll up like paper. And I just stopped by Panasonic's booth to check out the company's own transparent display. Unlike LG's, this one's not small enough to hold in your hand; it's meant for the living room. Panasonic's demo showcases the display attached to shelving with various home decor behind it." via The Verge

Foxconn's lookin' Sharp: $6 billion takeover accepted "Manufacturing giant Foxconn looks set to get a big boost to its display-making capabilities, with reports that the board of directors at Japanese electronics firm Sharp have accepted a takeover deal from the Taiwanese company." via Tech Radar

Production capacities at the other six factories were only lightly reduced by around 5-10% due to the earthquake" via Digitimes

The Next Phase of the TV Tech Battle: Quantum Dot vs. OLED Display "On the battlefield is organic LED (OLED) technology, championed by LG Electronics, facing off against something called quantum dot, a nano-crystal evolution of LCD technology which Samsung favors. This may sound like jargon and splitting hairs, but the production methods and potential costs for each type of display are very different." via XConomy.com

CES 2016 TV tech: 4K yawns, high dynamic range dawns "Since 4K TVs are now basically mainstream, with dirt-cheap prices and correspondingly thin profit margins, the voracious capitalist beast of technological progress needs its next shiny new object. Something higher, in both price and ambition. And that's why TV manufacturers, the ones who spend millions to power shows like CES, look at HDR as something that might convince you to spend more money on a bigger and better flat-panel." via CNet

Evertz Provides 4K Replay System at Super Bowl 50 "Transparent displays aren't really new in the technology industry, but this year at CES we're seeing some pretty amazing examples of them. There's LG's 18-inch display, which you can roll up like paper. And I just stopped by Panasonic's booth to check out the company's own transparent display.

LG made an 18-inch display you can roll up like a Newspaper "LG Display has a prototype 18-inch screen it's showing off at the Consumer Electronics Show this week that rolls up like a piece of paper. The technology builds on LG's forward-looking OLED work focusing on bendable, rollable, and curving displays. The company showed similar technology last year as a proof of concept, but kept images behind closed doors." via The Verge
