Display Night

Date and Time: December 6, 2023, 19:00-21:00
Location: Hotel Nikko Niigata
Registration: Free for IDW ’23 attendees (open to designated tickets holders)
Presented by Huawei Technologies Japan

Join us for a night of discussion and networking on the latest advances in display technology!
We will be featuring two eminent speakers:

Probing Exciton Transport in Organic Semiconductors to Guide OLED Design
Russell J. Holmes (University of Minnesota, USA)

OLEDs rely on the generation, confinement, and recombination of electrically generated excitons. Exciton transport can thus play an important role in performance, especially via bimolecular reactions responsible for reduced efficiency and stability. This talk will discuss methods to probe exciton transport, emphasizing non-luminescent triplets and systems that exhibit delayed fluorescence.

Revolution of Display Backplane Technology for OLED and Emerging Displays
Hyun-Jae Kim (Yonsei University, Korea)

In this talk, TFT technologies for OLED displays and emerging displays such as Micro-LED, QD-OLED, and AR/VR will be discussed. Accordingly, future TFT technologies for flexible and stretchable OLED displays, as well as on-silicon display technologies including OLEDoS and LEDoS, will also be covered.

  • Dinner and drinks will be served.
  • Space is limited to 250 participants.
  • To participate, please answer the participation preference question in the IDW '23 registration system. Participants will be selected from those responded to this question. The selected participants will be notified by email in late November.

Capturing and Displaying Image Technologies in the Medical Field

This event will focus on the latest capturing and displaying image technologies that contribute to the evolution of medical technology such as telemedicine, tele-surgery, digitization of medical technology such as endoscopic surgery, and examination technology.

Special Session

December 7, 9:00-10:00, Marine Hall

  1. The Latest Medical Technology Using High-Resolution, Wide-Color Gamut Images Compatible with ITU-R BT.2020 and the Latest Status of ITU-T/WHO
    Masahito Kawamori (Keio University)

    The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), an organization of the United Nations, develops and publishes International Standards “ITU Recommendation” for telecommunications and broadcasting. This lecture will be introduced trends in medical-related imaging, recording, and their output by Study Group 16, an expert committee on multimedia related to information and communications.

  2. Age-Related Changes in the Eye and Visual Function Such as Cataracts and the Significance of High-Definition Displays from the Viewpoint of Visual Optics
    Takushi Kawamorita (Kitasato University)

    This presentation will discuss aging changes of the eye and eye models, with a focus on cataracts. In addition, optimization of refractive correction such as glasses, contact lenses, and intraocular lenses will be discussed, as well as what is required for future electronic displays.

  3. Development of 8K/8K3D Shooting System for Surgery and Shooting Examples – A Significant Application of ITU-R Rec. BT.2020 8K System –
    Taiichiro Kurita (NHK Technologies Inc.)

    The 8K/4K UHDTV systems defined in Recommendation ITU-R BT.2020 was developed to provide viewers with an enhanced visual experience primarily by having a wide field of view, in usage at home and in public places. Especially, the 8K system has the highest spatial resolution and is currently the states of the art video system. The 8K system can be applied to a variety of fields other than broadcasting. Medical application is a significant application of 8K. 8K enables for doctors and nurses to better watch very fine blood vessels, nerves, membranes, organs and threads for surgery. It will contribute to medical progress. We developed 8K/8K3D shooting systems for surgery and conducted shootings using them. The developed systems and shooting examples will be presented in this talk, especially in detail about the 8K-class 3D shooting system for microscopic surgery (IDW ’19, VHF7-4L).

Special Exhibition

December 7, 12:30-16:30, Exhibition Hall B

  1. Research on Visual Optics and Visual Design and Introduction of the Latest Measurement Equipment for Ocular and Visual Functions
    Takushi Kawamorita (Kitasato University)
    At Kitasato University's Department of Orthoptics and Visual Science, we specialize in Visual Optics and actively engage in joint development and research consulting with various companies. We will present our latest research in visual optics and showcase the latest measuring instruments for ocular and visual function in ophthalmology. Please visit our booth at a special exhibition to know more about Kitasato University's work in visual optics. We will also be exhibiting at the IDW ’23 metaverse exhibition.
