Japan Display Inc announces start of OEL display business

6 Comments

Japan Display Inc on Monday began business activities with the aim of becoming a global leader in the field of small- and medium-sized displays, focusing on the growing global market for smartphones and tablets.

The company was launched following investment by Innovation Network Corp of Japan, Sony Corp, Toshiba Corp and Hitachi Ltd, which facilitated the integration of the small- and medium-sized display businesses of Sony, Toshiba and Hitachi.

In a display market environment marked by rapid growth and ever intensifying competition, JDI will combine and develop the LTPS, low power consumption and display technologies of its three predecessor companies to create innovative products in anticipation of future needs, while responding rapidly to market demand for increasingly sophisticated high definition displays. JDI will also actively invest in increasing its production capacity to ensure that it is well positioned to fulfill customer requirements.

JDI will focus on small- and medium-sized displays for a range of applications from mobile devices and other consumer products to automotive electronics and industrial equipment.

JDI said it aims to establish distribution companies in the U.S., Europe, South Korea, China and Taiwan, so that through close communication with customers it can provide products that will fully satisfy their needs. JDI will also actively conduct research and development into next-generation panel technology such as OLED displays.

Its not about building the OLED displays, its about building the OLED technology and owning/licensing the patents.

Then let them build displays in SK, we'll get a cut anyway.

If JDI is capable of building OLED displays of 300dpi resolution over an A4 size area more cheaply and reliably, they could get in on the multi billion dollar/trillion yen Apple iPad business and possibly spark up Apple's competition.

The Japanese IT industry is more or less dead. China, Taiwan, and South Korea has surpassed them in every aspect. Even the auto industry is falling behind. I predict a total economical collapse in Japan. They deserve it too, for failing to innovate while other countires are rapidly evolving.

People on this site don't understand this, advanced manufacturing goes is an alien concept to them.

Oh dear, how ill-informed, China Taiwan and South Korea have certainly not 'surpassed them in every respect', Japan is still a word leader who monoplises, along with Germany, the technology that Korean and Chinese companies need to make their components and own technology.
