Low-Power Next-Generation Displays to Gain Higher Traction in the Near Future


The ever-growing advancements in nanotechnology and optoelectronics are transforming the market for next-generation displays. Several technologies are available in the market for low-power next-generation displays, consuming less power as compared to CRT- Cathode Ray Tube and Plasma technologies. Most of the customers nowadays are inclining towards high-resolution displays consuming low power, which represent the technology of low-power next-generation displays.

Demand for Most Recent High-Quality Image Definition Expected to Surge in the Near Future

Surging popularity of is pegged to fuel the demand for low-power next-generation displays, concerning the engulfing of modern technology of in the upcoming electronic trends. Nowadays, consumers demand for the most recent high-quality image definition, analysing every prospect of electronics, which is likely to surge in the upcoming years. North America is likely to dominate the global low-power next-generation display market in the upcoming years, according to a report by Future Market Insights (FMI). Key players identified in the report include Samsung, 3M, Au Optronics, Corning, Panasonic, Toshiba, LG Display, Sony, Apple, Cambrios Technology, Nova Display, and Philips Electronics.

Increasing Popularity of High-Resolution Display Systems Expected to Propel the Market Growth

Various display technologies are already existing in the market viz. 3D, touchscreen, flexible, and transparent displays. Portable devices such as tablets, laptops, smartphones, etc. have further accelerated the demand for low-power next-generation display technology. This has led the manufacturers in developing low-power next-generation displays with high efficiency. A detailed analysis on the global low-power next-generation display market is been offered by FMI’s report for the forecast period 2017-2027. The market is projected to register a considerable growth in the near future.

FMI’s report states that the growth of global low-power next-generation display market is attributed to some major factors such as rising prevalence of high-resolution display systems and devices that consumer low power, along with touch-screen and flexible displays with a variety in pixel range. Furthermore, technological advancements have resulted into production of enhanced & efficient displays consuming low power, which in turn is driving the device manufacturers’ interests in enhancing these devices’ functionality. This factor is further expected to fuel growth of the market in the near future. In contrast, high cost of manufacturing for these displays is likely to impede the market growth of low-power next-generation displays. Investments made in in-built technologies and highly skilled technicians further contributes to the prices of these devices on the basis of availability.

Crayon- Reducing Dissipation of Display Power

Displays account for significant fraction of the total system power dissipation across mobile platforms such as smartphones, tablets, and smart watches. As optoelectronic and analog electronic effects dominate display power dissipation, that don’t scale with digital semiconductor process improvements, relative fraction of displays’ consumed system power is anticipated to either remain constant, or surge in the near future. A library & runtime system, Crayon, reduces dissipation of display power, acceptably approximating images displayed through transformations in colour and shape.  Capable of being inserted between the display and an application, Crayon optimises dynamically generated images prior to their appearance on screen. By applying it offline, stored images can be optimised before they get retrieved and displayed.

Three fundamental properties are exploited by Crayon viz. acceptability of minute changes in colour and shape, dependence of power dissipation of DLP pico-projectors and OLED displays on different colours, and comparatively small energy cost required for computation than display energy utilisation. Crayon can be evaluated and implemented in three contexts- hardware platform with facilities of detailed power measurement and OLED display, set of cross-platform tools, and an Android tablet. Crayon’s colour transforms are capable of reducing display power dissipation to more than 66% at the time of image production, remaining visually acceptable to customers.
