IGNIS Innovation announced that they have developed the world's first HDR mobile display. The so-called True Vision Display features a high contrast ratio, high frame rate, wide color gamut and high color precision and bit-depth. It's also very bright as required for HDR.

CSOT 5.5-inch MaxLife AMOLED prototype

Ignis will unveil their new display at SID's DisplayWeek 2015 next month, so we'll get more details. In the meantime, Ignis told us that this is a 5.5" HD AMOLED display that is extremely bright indeed at 1,500 nits (the Galaxy S6, for example, has a maximum brightness of 784 nits).

The new display uses Ignis' MaxLife compensation driving scheme which enables high yields, low cost, low-power consumption, and long life time. Interestingly, last year Ignis announced that it is going to collaborate with Shenzhen China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) to develop a 5.5" HD AMOLED MaxLife Lite LTPS panel (you can see the panel above). Maybe the new 5.5" HD HDR AMOLED is the result of this partnership?

Ignis has been developing its MaxLife technology for years. Back in 2011 RiT collaborated with Ignis to develop a-Si based AMOLEDs, and even showed some very nice prototypes, but this never materialized into commercialization. Hopefully the CSOT development will fare better. In December 2013, Ignis announced that started shipping 55" OLED TV evaluation samples to display makers to test their MaxLife compensation technology.
