Displays new

1. Displays for automotive

At the moment there are three major ways displays are used in cars: in the CID (Center Information Display), in the cluster and as HUD (Head Up Display).


CID: Center Information Display


Depending on the customer’s needs the displays between the driver and the front-seat passenger can have practical features or be used as an entertainment hub. Important information that improves your driving experience (like navigation system or rear view camera) can be shown there, but the CID can also be used as a stereo system, TV or to surf the internet.

In modern cars it becomes more and more important that the CID is aesthetically and functionally integrated in the car. This is why JDI develops curved displays, among others, that seamlessly merge into the dashboard.



Displays are also increasingly being used for the information that is displayed behind the steering wheel. Just as with the CID, the displays are directly integrated into the dashboard and show the tachometer, the fuel consumption and other information related to the car in high resolution images.

Head Up Display


The images from these displays, which only measure a few centimeters, are mirrored straight into the windshield and provide traffic information without the driver having to avert their eyes from the streets. A piece of virtual reality that directly transfers important information to the driver.

The Future of Displays


2. MIP solutions


JDI carries out development relating to not only improvement of display performance with higher resolution and higher picture quality, but also to reflective-type color displays for realization of ultra-low power consumption.

JDI’s reflective-type display optimizes its optical design by using a newly-developed scattering layer. At the same time, ultra-low power consumption is achieved when still images are displayed by adopting a memory-in-pixel structure using low temperature poly-silicon technology. Full-color moving images are also available. This technology supports development of new applications like smart watches and e-readers.


Highlight: Digital pins

Pin ONE was born out of an idea of bringing online creative work into the physical space and the ability to wear it as a part of one’s daily outfit. Wearing a pin is a classic way of showing cultural belonging and a perfect fit for the first expressive wearable. The accompanying app lets the wearer create and upload artworks to the pin. Within short, a community feature will be added so the users can share their creativity with others and wear each other’s digital designs.

Japan Display is proud to provide the reflective displays for this unique business idea. Our Memory-in-Pixel technology guarantees low power consumption and bright colors. See our detailed specifications here.

3. Medical Displays

Displays for medical diagnoses

In order to assure high accuracy in medical diagnoses, diagnostic-use displays have recently tended to require

  • higher resolution,
  • higher contrast,
  • excellent grayscale, and
  • brighter and longer lifetime backlights.

JDI has developed a brand new 21.3-inch high resolution (5 mega-pixel) monochrome TFT display incorporating JDI’s most advanced IPS and LTPS technologies to meet the needs for higher performance displays coming about from the medical market. (Read full article here.)

JDI plans to further expand its medical-use display lineup by adopting cutting-edge LTPS technologies.
