Companies presenting include:
According to Veritas et Visus Publisher and Editor in Chief Mark Fihn, "We are so excited to bring some discussions about truly creative technologies that will expand the visual experience into a truly immersive experience. Going far beyond gaming and entertainment, next generation VR is going to transform not only the world of displays, but the world as a whole."
According to OLED Association CEO and President Barry Young, "The Immersive Experience Market Focus Conference is to examine the current and future prospects and technologies that guide this new industry into expanding beyond Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. Immersion is a new concept in which the common theme is how it alters the way we interact with absolutely everything. Facebook is 2D (even the 360 videos are viewed on 2D). Texting is 2D. FaceTime is 2D. VR/AR proponents want to convert to a 3D space."
SID Chairman of Marketing Sri Peruvemba, remarked, "As display technologies continue to improve, we are experiencing a world that increasingly blurs the difference between reality and imagination. The Immersive Experience Market Focus Conference will bring some clarity to the remarkable developments underway."
The descriptions for each Display Week Immersive Experience Market Focus Conference sessions are as follows:
The conference will examine these segments of the market and the basics of how the display industry will need to change to cope with the demands of immersion.
