Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today announced it will exhibit its advanced glass portfolio at the Society for Information Display’s (SID) Display Week, May 21-25, 2018, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
At booth #1029, Corning will showcase its rich history as an innovation leader enabling applications that meet consumer demands for large-size LCD TVs, stunning OLED mobile phones, and immersive augmented reality devices.
“We are leveraging Corning’s core technologies and our manufacturing and engineering expertise to drive the next wave of display innovations,” said Chris Hudson, international division vice president and commercial director, Corning Display Technologies. “For over 165 years, Corning has effectively leveraged our experience and capabilities to transform the future in ways once thought impossible. Today, the display industry is witnessing a shift to the next generation of devices, and Corning is excited to be at the forefront of this continued evolution.”
Additionally, Corning’s booth will feature:
- Corning Lotus™ NXT Glass: enhances the design and manufacture of high-performance displays, and is optimized for the expanding LTPS-LCD and LTPS-OLED industries. Featuring superior key attributes for flexible OLED panel manufacturing, Lotus NXT Glass leads the industry, having enabled more than 250 million flexible OLED phones since 2015.
- Corning® Gorilla® Glass: is the cover glass of choice for more than 40 major OEMs and is featured on billions of consumer electronic devices delivering superior damage resistance, optical clarity, and touch sensitivity.
- Augmented Reality Solutions: enables cutting-edge augmented reality/mixed reality devices with a unique combination of solutions. Corning offers a secure supply of high-index glasses, polymers, automated laser glass-cutting, and characterization tools. Corning technologies help deliver optical designs that maximize image quality and decrease device size for a more immersive user experience.
- Corning Iris™ Glass: is a glass light-guide plate for edge-lit LCD TVs and monitors. Due to its intrinsic rigidity and dimensional stability, it outperforms the incumbent technology – plastic – and allows manufacturers to reduce set thickness, increase set brightness, and design sets with slimmer bezels.
Also during Display Week, Corning experts will present at the 2018 SID/DSCC Business Conference, the Display Week Symposium, and SID’s LCD 50th Anniversary Celebration.
Corning Glass Technologies is in the business of enabling richer entertainment experiences. Whether it’s with sharper display quality at thinner form factors or cutting-edge solutions for the Internet of Things, Corning helps deliver a brighter view of today.
