Visteon Corporation says that its microZone display technology is to be used in a multi-display system set to feature in multiple premium and performance vehicles by a US OEM which are due to be launched in 2024.
According to the company, its microZone technology is the first of its kind in the industry and gives manufacturers a choice beyond organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) for automotive applications. Visteon says it developed microZone to address the industry demand for a high-quality display that delivers a premium experience, while meeting stringent automotive-specific requirements.
To this end, the displays are said to provide a high-dynamic range display solution with a longer lifespan and low-power consumption and lower cost than OLED systems. The manufacturer states that microZone, based on mature LCD technology, provides superior optical performance without sacrificing vehicle reliability, having passed rigorous automotive qualification requirements.
“Visteon’s microZone display technology offers vehicle manufacturers a very good alternative to evaluate in addition to OLED. By promptly converting this technology into a business win so soon after announcing it, we have demonstrated how quickly Visteon’s innovative new product solutions can become available to auto makers,” remarked Qais Sharif, vice president, display product line at Visteon.
