and Materials at SID Display Week 2013
Display Week 2013
EWING, N.J. -- May 20, 2013
Universal Display Corporation (NASDAQ: PANL), enabling energy-efficient
displays and lighting with its UniversalPHOLED^® technology and materials,
today announced that it will showcase the company’s latest advances at the
2013 Society for Information Display (SID) International Symposium, Seminar,
and Exhibition, being held from May 19-24, 2013 in Vancouver, British
Columbia. The company will also exhibit a variety of prototypes and concept
devices to demonstrate the benefits of its OLED technologies and
high-performance UniversalPHOLED materials. The company will exhibit at Booth
#514 from May 21-23 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
Universal Display’s development of OLED display, lighting, and next-generation
technologies, including flexible OLEDs, has driven key advances and
accelerated the path to commercialization. Global display manufacturers have
been increasingly introducing OLED devices, including the leading smartphones
and other mobile products, and Universal Display’s technology and materials
are currently found in most OLED products on the market. Universal Display is
also delivering OLED advances to its partners to help accelerate their
commercialization of white OLED lighting and flexible OLED products.
While Universal Display’s red phosphorescent OLED emitter materials have been
the standard for manufacturers’ use in the OLED market over the past several
years, the company recently began selling commercial volumes of green
phosphorescent OLED emitter and host materials. As more products are brought
to market by OLED device manufacturers, and as innovative, next-generation
technologies are introduced, the company expects to expand its presence in the
display and lighting markets.
“This year we can truly say that OLED technology has entered the mainstream,
with OLED displays in the hands of millions of consumers worldwide,” said
Steven V. Abramson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Universal
Display. “Our proprietary UniversalPHOLED technology and materials are a
driving force in the development and commercialization of beautiful,
energy-efficient OLED displays and white OLED lighting. With manufacturers
reporting expanded production and plans to invest more in OLED development and
production, there are ample opportunities for Universal Display to grow, drive
further advances to realize OLED’s vast potential, and build shareholder
