DisplaySearch Announces Final Agenda for Taiwan Smart TV Conference

Santa Clara, Calif., October 12, 2011—DisplaySearch, the worldwide leader in display market research, today announced the final agenda for its upcoming Taiwan Smart TV Conference to be held on November 8 in Taipei, Taiwan. The conference will feature presentations from representatives of the TV supply chain, including panel makers, electronic solution providers, as well as world-class TV analysts from DisplaySearch and In-Stat.

Flat panel TV innovation is on-going, but the strategy should be modulated to conquer the gluts in the industry cycle. Success is possible with a vision of the future of smart TVs, but only for those who can strategically manage the TV business. The Taiwan Smart TV Conference provides a platform for all participants within the FPD TV industry to share information on the latest trends, opportunities and challenges within the TV supply chain. It also provides an opportunity for industry affiliates to network and associate.

“To combat unfavorable market conditions, FPD TV industry participants have to continuously focus on the innovation of advanced TV design features like LED backlights, 3D and connected/smart TVs with the anticipation consumers will value these rich features at affordable price points,” noted David Hsieh, Vice President of DisplaySearch. “With the strong TV supply chain presence in Taiwan, the annual Taiwan Smart TV Conference has become the premiere TV event in this region, bringing together industry leaders to share their views on TV specifications, innovative technologies, changing business models and OEM/ODM activities.”
