  • LCD Seminar '98 Focuses on Expanding Monitor Market
  • October 28, 1998 (TOKYO) -- The expansion of the LCD monitor market is the focus of attention at the Liquid Crystal Display Seminar '98 held concurrently with LCD/PDP International'98 from Oct. 28 to Oct. 30 at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba prefecture.
    The LCD industry is emphasizing the idea of "going beyond the notebook PC" to reduce its reliance on the LCD market geared to notebooks, and the industry is making efforts to cultivate new markets.

    Presentations are being made on the various approaches for expanding the thin-film transistor (TFT)-LCD monitor market as speakers make comparisons between TFT-LCDs and CRTs by addressing their respective characteristics and problems.

    Also, lectures are focusing on image quality, which holds the key to expanding overall demand. The presentations and lectures are evaluating image quality of the existing TFT-LCD monitors and CRT monitors, and will clarify the future role of TFT-LCD monitors.

    Nikkei Business Publications, Inc. sponsors LCD/PDP International. A broad range of exhibits are on display, encompassing production equipment for LCD/PDP, parts, LCD/PDP panels, products that use LCD/PDPs, and other items related to LCD/PDPs. This is the fifth time that this exhibition is being held. The number of visitors to this year's event is expected to be about the same as that of last year, at about 28,000.
