Leading a New Digital Display Era with Public Information Displays (PIDs)

As the fourth large segment of advanced digital displays (TVs, PCs, mobile devices), PIDs are in high demand. In fact, demand for premium PIDs ─ large-sized panels with full high definition (FHD) or ultra-high definition (UHD) resolution used in video walls, outdoor signage, control and command centers, and travel information displays ─ has been much higher than anticipated. Moreover, demand continues to grow.

According to market research firm IHS Markit, annual revenues for public displays are expected to grow from USD $5.8 billion in 2016 to $12.7 billion in 2020, amounting to a 22% annual growth rate.

To accommodate this growth, Samsung Display has taken the initiative to expand the public display panel market with specialized PID designs and leading-edge production processes.

Launching PID Web Portal

On October 20th, we launched a comprehensive communication portal ‘Samsung Display PID’ to provide a wealth of PID market data, and detailed analysis of public information display technologies and panel products, primarily directed at Samsung Display global customers. The new Samsung Display PID website is focused on enabling a clear understanding of the many benefits and operating alternatives for PID panels in any application, while also providing sales contact information through which PID customers can get further support.

The ‘one-stop shop’ PID website provides easy-to-access detailed information on all of our state-of-the-art PID panels for video walls, indoor and outdoor signage, interactive whiteboards, stretched (32:9) displays, and transparent commercial displays. The official site also provides customized information for various locations where Samsung Display panels have become popular, including educational institutions, military and industrial control rooms, hotels, retail venues, bus shelters, subway stations and airports.

To help site visitors better understand the many technological advantages of Samsung PID panels, we have included a special Learning Center menu on the website’s homepage. Website visitors can review the latest industry information about PID panels from around the world, including reports, publications, case studies, blogs and news of upcoming PID exhibitions.


Innovations Abound

Samsung Display has led the miniaturization of bezel gap technology to under 2mm for video wall panels. This allows images shown across multiple large-format displays to appear as one very large screen. And, each panel in a video wall achieves precise color uniformity to help images blend together as a single, giant picture. Samsung PID products deliver HD or Ultra HD resolution in large-sized displays that are highly durable, and minimize discoloration during long periods of operation.

To deliver visual information to the public efficiently across the widest variety of environments, PIDs must have improved brightness, greater durability and higher thermal resistance than TV and PC monitors. In overcoming every environmental constraint, Samsung displays ensure outstanding durability. Additionally, the panels deliver an outstanding “5,000 nits” measure of display brightness that has helped solidify our lead in the global outdoor signage market.

The age of electronic public information sharing is upon us, and the market for PIDs has extremely bright prospects. Visit our website above for more information on how you can make the best possible use of a PID solution to enhance your digital communications.
