Tianma’s high-performance WQHD HDR LCD named Best in Show at Display Week 2018
Los Angeles, CA, May 24, 2018 – Tianma’s 6.46-inch HDR (high dynamic range) LCD has been honored with a Best in Show Award, presented by the Society of Information Display (SID) at Display Week 2018. Based on LTPS technology, the prototype’s performance in contrast ratio, response time, resolution and brightness put it on-par with today’s AMOLED displays. This is Tianma’s first time winning this prestigious award.
The Best in Show awards honor the most significant advances in display technology and systems, products, prototypes, and manufacturing processes presented by exhibitors at Display Week. Winners are chosen by an independent panel of display experts for their ability to generate excitement within the display industry, along with the general public, global media and analyst communities. This year's winners were selected from more than 200 exhibitors. Tianma won this award in the Large Exhibit Category.
“We are excited and honored that our product has been selected as a Best in Show winner in this year’s competition,” said Eric Cheng, President and CEO of Tianma America. “This recognition is a testament to the talent, dedication and ingenuity put forth by the worldwide Tianma Group team.”
Developed by Tianma Micro-electronics Co., this HDR display is the industry’s first WQHD full-screen display for smartphones, generating real resolution of 498PPI and utilizing mini-LED technology to achieve multi-zone local dimming.
Tianma’s HDR display offers excellent performance for smartphones, with peak brightness above 1000 nits and maximum local contrast over 3,000,000:1. The display also features 10-bit gray code signal input and output with DCI-P3 color gamut. These features combine to produce images that more closely replicate real-life scenes, enabling the LTPS LCD to better compete at OLED performance levels.
The Tianma HDR display for smartphones is expected to be in production by the end of 2019.
