JDI Display Awarded Technology Prize at Digital Camera Grand Prix

Japan Display Inc. (JDI), a global leader in mobile display technologies, was awarded the Technology Prize for its "Pixel Eyes" LCD products at Digital Camera Grand Prix 2015 SUMMER in Japan. JDI's LCDs have received Grand Prix awards two years in a row, first in 2014 for its "WhiteMagic" products and now again in 2015 for its innovative "Pixel Eyes" products, which has been widely advertised by a major camera brand in their marketing efforts.

"Pixel Eyes" is a product incorporating JDI's original technology that integrates the touch sensor functionality directly into the display panel. It eliminates the need for an external touch panel which is usually added as a separate component. Thus, with "Pixel Eyes", the display module will be thinner in size, lighter in weight and higher in transmittance. Not only will it open the way for a comfortable touch operation experience but also a broad range of user interfaces.

Recently, "Pixel Eyes" has been widely applied in digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras, mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC), and high-end digital cameras to meet the requirement for instant operation of the touch focus function, which a conventional push button approach cannot do, and to enable a simple, intuitive menu setting operation. "Pixel Eyes" also contributes to the light weight and slim design of these cameras.

The Digital Camera Grand Prix committee consists of photographers, critics, and distribution channel members, including mass merchants, who are experts on digital-imaging related products in Japan. Leading products, from a consumer's point of view, are reviewed. The Technology Prize is presented to epoch-making, innovative, newsworthy, and outstanding technological approaches.
