Outline The Innovation Network Corporation of Japan (INCJ) financed the merger of Sony, Toshiba, and Hitachi's LCD divisions into one entity by investing two hundred billion yen. The agreement was finalized November 15, 2011 and operations began April 1, 2012.
History 2011 August 31 - INCJ, Sony, Toshiba, and Hitachi agree to the merger of their respective LCD divisions. November 15 - The agreement is finalized. INCJ and Panasonic begin talks on the acquisition of one of Panasonic's factories. Japan Display, Inc is established. 2012 April 1 - Operations begin 2013 April 1 - Japan Display West, Japan Display Central, and Japan Display East are merged. October 23 - New Subsidiary "Taiwan Display Inc." is established. 2014 March 19 - The company is listed on the first section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Technology JDI has developed several technologies to differentiate its LCD panels from those of the competitors.
Active-matrix displays driven by TFTs based on a low-temperature polycrystalline-silicon ("LTPS") process instead of amorphous silicon. These higher performance transistors allow a higher resolution (more ppi = pixels per inch). Most LCDs manufactured by JDI use the In-Plane-Switching concept, as do many of its competitors. JDI has developed an improvement for darker black pixels (true-black appearance), called "IPS-NEO", which reduces the light shining through from the backlighting. The conventional combination of a transparent touch-screen device in front of an LCD panel has been replaced by integrating the touch-screen function into the LCD panel itself, called "Pixel Eyes". For reflective LCDs without backlighting, JDI has developed an addressing technique using a thin-film memory device SRAM in addition to the conventional TFT for each pixel, so that a still image can be stored with very little energy. Business As JDI conducted an IPO during March 2014, some business information became available. Around the time of the IPO, it was reported that JDI is the major supplier of displays for Apple's iPhone. By pure coincidence, in the 3 years after the IPO, JDI accumulated losses each year. A restructuring plan was announced in 2017, including closing down a production line in Japan and the layoff of approx. a third of the workforce.
