Intel VP to discuss low-cost computing initiative in IHS/SID 2013

Will the enabling and investment strategy of Intel Corp. lead to low-cost touch-screen-enabled notebooks that drive new demand for PCs and yield innovation in the global display market?

Find out at the IHS/SID 2013 Business Conference, held May 20 in Vancouver, Canada. At the event, Zane Ball, Intel vice president and general manager, Global Ecosystem Development, will deliver a keynote address discussing the company’s plan to empower the PC industry to produce low-cost notebooks incorporating touch technology.

“Intel is making major investments in the display supply chain to bring low-cost touch and high-resolution displays to the PC market,” Ball said. “We believe these investments will set the stage for PC makers to deliver notebooks with advanced features at reduced price points year over year.” 

Ball also will discuss Intel’s Ultrabook effort and its impact on the touch-screen market.

Intel’s keynote will provide a perfect starting point for the IHS/SID 2013 Business Conference, which this year is focusing on the theme of “Paths to a Healthier Display Industry.”

“From the keynote, to the presentations, to the panel sessions, the IHS/SID 2013Business Conference is completely focused on the products and strategies that can revive the health of the display business,” said Sweta Dash, senior director, display research and strategy, for IHS and also a speaker and organizer of the conference. “With the flat-panel TV replacement boom having concluded, the growth of the display business now must be driven by other product areas that companies can address through inventive form factors, features or pricing. This year’s conference will serve as a roadmap for suppliers and buyers who want to innovate their way to a healthier display business.”

Early-bird registration for the IHS/SID 2013 Business Conference, expiring May 2, is priced at $595; the standard fee is $650. Press registration is free.
