CAMPBELL, Calif., May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Society for Information
Display (SID), the leading global organization dedicated to the advancement of
electronic display technology, in collaboration with IHS, today unveiled the
keynote speakers for its Business Conference taking place during Display Week
2013 (May 19-24) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The keynotes for
this must-attend event are Zane Ball, Intel's vice president of architecture
and general manager of PCCG global ecosystem development, and Mike Lucas,
senior vice president at Sony Electronics.

The theme of this year's Business Conference is the identification of trends
that can improve the health of the industry, and the keynote addresses focus
on two of the most exciting areas of opportunity. It will kick off with Zane
Ball giving a keynote that centers on "Touch Everywhere." Ball will examine
the efforts to drive touch across a broad spectrum of computing platforms,
including PCs, Ultrabooks, low-cost notebooks and all-in-one PCs—unlocking new
opportunities for product differentiation and application areas.

As the second keynote of the day, Mike Lucas will focus on "4K and the
Resolution Revolution." Specifically, he will discuss the "next big thing",
4K Ultra High Definition display technology and content, which offer four
times the resolution of full HD. 4K technology and content has been available
in projectors for home theaters since 2011 and is a staple in the cinema
industry. 4K television displays are just making their entrance into the
home. While the transition from HD to 4K somewhat mirrors the transition a
decade ago from SD to HD, Lucas will assess the many significant differences
as well, with the availability of native 4K content being paramount.

The Business Conference will be held on Monday, May 20 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30
p.m. at the Vancouver Convention Center. A networking cocktail reception will
follow. For more information on how to register, visit www.displayweek.org.
