The company is also working on higher resolution/pixel density LCDs, aiming to achieve display resolutions up to 1000ppi within the first half of 2018.
The Japanese display manufacturer currently mass produces LTPS TFT LCDs with a super-fine pixel density of approximately 600ppi, which provides a sense of reality to users. But at this resolution, the pixel density is not sufficient to avoid seeing the pixel structure (behind the VR optics), hence the need to reach at least 800ppi. But according to JDI, moving to even higher pixel densities, beyond 1000ppi would enable VR HMD manufacturers to decrease the size and weight of their units by both decreasing the size of the display and increasing the magnification of the lenses.
Across its 1920×RGB×2160 pixels, the 803ppi 3.60-inch diagonal display supports a refresh rate of 90Hz, has a response time of 4.5ms and boasts a light output up to 150cd/m2, with a contrast ratio of 700:1.
