Jon Prosser will be speaking in front of the DSCC audience for the first time. DSCC was very impressed with his review of the Apple Vision Pro and thought it would be helpful to share his visionary outlook for this product with the DSCC audience. You can see his review here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krpbAMJlLTc&t=1434s.

It was interesting that while he initially focused on the hardware details, he then took a step and focused on the experience which he thought of as magic or as a time machine. Check it out and what it means for the future of smartphones and AR/VR headsets.

The other speakers spoke last year and will update their display market and technology outlook with the latest developments from the past 12 months.
