Insight Media have announced availability of their 2009 Green Display Report addressing the business threats and opportunities arising from current concerns about display properties including power consumption, recycling, hazardous materials, as well as consumer and regulatory interests. The 2009 Green Display Report was authored by Phillip Wright of WRT Associates and Ken Werner of Insight Media. The 2009 Green Displays Report analyses the great range of environmentally important factors affecting the $100 billion global market for flat panel displays used in televisions, computer monitors and notebook PCs.
The Green Display Report also describes some of the findings of the first ever Green Display Expo held October 27, 2009 in Washington, DC. The Green Display Expo brought together a core group of display industry participants from consumer electronics, professional AV, display manufacturing, regulatory and labeling agencies, and recycling constituencies to discuss the latest trends in green displays. Phillip Wright of WRT Associates presented at the Green Display Expo on the topic of “Defining Display Greenness: Why it Matters for Consumers, Manufacturers and Regulators.” Dr. Wright’s Green Display Expo presentation addressed the fundamental questions facing display users, manufacturers and regulators:
- Why do we care about green displays?
- What makes a display green?
- Where are we today?
- Where do we go from here?
- How will we know when we get there?
Take a look at the slides, decide for yourself if we have captured all the factors that constitute a green display, and let us know if we missed any.
