Has LCD Innovation Reached the End of the Line?

El Segundo, Calif. (May 14, 2014)—The rise of the liquid-crystal display (LCD) has made high-quality electronic displays ubiquitous, enabling the new era of flat-panel TVs, smartphones and media tablets. But is the innovation phase that propelled LCD technology to dominance coming to an end?

Find out at the IHS/SID 2014 Business Conference, to be held June 2 in San Diego, Calif., at the San Diego Convention Center.
