STRATEGIC PLANNING FOR AN R&D STARTUP
We gain access into the virtual world through a multitude of telecommunication devices. Your computer, television, and mobile phone are a few examples from your everyday life. All these devices are equipped with some type of display through which we interact. Our experience of the device can be greatly enhanced or limited by the display technology being used. Technological breakthroughs in display technology can enable dramatic shifts in product design and consumer experience. Every type of device has different display requirements. A mobile device, for example, will certainly have different display requirements than a television. The challenge and opportunity for a display technology company is in designing a display with characteristics that give a particular device a competitive edge. Our client is a leader in display technology innovation. Their staff composed of scientists, engineers, and technicians experiment with the latest materials, process, and equipment with the end goal of creating breakthroughs in display technology.
