His keynote will grant trade visitors and media insights into the future of display technologies and product specifications such as paper-thin and transparent displays, as well as ever-more colourful, ever-more flexible screens, IFA says.

IFA executive director Jens Heithecker commented: “LG Display’s opening keynote at IFA 2015 focuses on a technology that is key to consumer and business users – the display. This is a moment to look forward as a global pioneer and technology leader envisions the future. We are thrilled to get IFA started together with Sang-Beom Han.”

Dr Han has more than 30 years of experience in the semiconductor and display sectors. As head of the TV unit in 2010, he achieved a major accomplishment with the successful launch of FPR (Film Type Patterned Retarder) 3D technology, which gained a stronghold on the global TV LCD panel market, IFA says. Dr Han has been also recognized as a global pioneer in commercializing OLED display technology.

IFA adds that LG Display is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of TFT-LCD panels (Thin Film Transistor Liquid Crystal Displays), OLEDs and flexible displays.

IFA will take place at the Berlin Exhibition Grounds (Expo Center City) from September 4 to 9 2015.
