OCTOBER 27--DuPont Display Solutions, a unit of DuPont Display Technologies (Torrance, CA) and a display-enhancement provider, and NEC LCD Technologies Ltd. (www.nec-lcd.com), a leader in display technology, have introduced a line of display modules enhanced with technologies for improving flat-panel-display (FPD) performance in challenging environments. The products will utilize DuPont Display Solutions' ability to assist NEC's FPD customers by providing aftermarket enhancements that enable liquid-crystal displays (LCDs) for a fast-growing number of emerging non-PC industrial market applications.
The NEC display modules will offer unique variations of display enhancements provided by DuPont Display Solutions, enabling customers to differentiate themselves within their respective markets. These enhanced display modules will be marketed to serve the needs of the medical, transportation, instruments, and other industries that require displays to be used in environments that affect the performance of LCDs, such as in direct sunlight, moisture, and wide temperature ranges, among others.
Peter Compo, president of DuPont Display Solutions, stated, "Together with NEC, we are going to meet a need to provide LCD modules that can address a global market for information displays used in challenging, high-ambient light environments. This is a market segment that is accelerating, and DuPont Display Solutions is engineering capabilities to fill the gap between off-the-shelf displays and challenging environment applications for use specifically with NEC's display modules."
