Title: Immersive Experiences: The Challenges for Display Technologies
Abstract: Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are immersive experiences that have the potential to become the new platforms that replace traditional phones, tablets, laptops and desktops, along with their displays. This keynote describes the characteristics and needs of Virtual and Augmented Reality systems, particularly from display technologies. It provides a broad overview of the issues and challenges, setting the stage for subsequent, more focused presentations in this event.
