MiniLED and MicroLED session:
Outlook on MicroLED

This talk will cover the latest trends in MicroLED displays and the market forecasts from DSCC. It will give an overview of the various strategies to reduce cost and the challenges that remain. The presentation will examine:

  • The benefits of MicroLED displays
  • Samsung's product lineup
  • The competitive landscape
  • The latest news about Apple
  • The mass transfer technologies and display architectures

AR and VR session:

Opportunities in AR/VR for the Display Manufacturers

The AR/VR market is at a turning point. Devices have become more affordable without sacrificing too much on performance or image quality. Apple is also expected to join the party soon with its own headset. This presentation will summarize key findings from DSCC's latest report on AR/VR displays. I will discuss the strength of each technology and will show forecasts for both VR and see-through AR.

  • Which display technology is compatible with which type of optics
  • Challenges specific to AR/VR
  • Investment in Micro OLED in China
  • Status of MicroLED

Guillaume was previously Senior Product Line Manager at Plessey Semiconductors where he managed customer projects integrating microLED displays into AR/VR headsets. He led market research activities to position Plessey’s new product lines and understand the competitive landscape. In this role he worked closely with the Business Development and Marketing teams to promote the benefits of monolithic GaN-on-Si for microdisplays.

He first started working in display technology when he joined Plastic Logic (now FlexEnable) as an engineer to develop the first flexible e-paper display. That’s when he attended Display Week for the first time and became fascinated by this industry. After Plastic Logic, he became an analyst for IDTechEx and covered the progress of OLED and quantum dot displays, as well as the emerging sensors and haptics integrated in flat panels. He spoke at several international conference on printed and flexible electronics and regularly travelled to the USA, Japan, Korea and France to visit suppliers. In 2018 he started Irimitech, and independent consultancy on emerging materials and devices.

Guillaume has a Master’s degree in Physics Engineering from INSA Toulouse and a PhD from Imperial College London. His PhD thesis was on single-molecule optical sensing with solid-state nanopores.
