2017 SID/DSCC Automotive Display Conference Tuesday, May 23, 2017 LA Convention Center
Dr. Thomas Seder GM Technical Fellow & Chief Technologist - HMI General Motors R&D
Abstract: Future vehicles will feature display systems having higher resolution, wider color space, enhanced grayscale bit depth, ultralow luminance black states and shapes that reflect the brand design language. Additionally, the context of future driving will create demand for augmented reality display systems. In this presentation, Seder will discuss the quest for more beautiful displays and their performance attributes, as well as key drivers of advanced vehicle display technologies.
