Jon Peddie Research (JPR) and Display Daily, a leading international media outlet for data, analysis, news, and insights for display and component companies, has announced that JPR will acquire Display Daily. The acquisition significantly advances JPR’s reach as the research firm expands its analysis, news and reporting capacity, global footprint, and technology portfolio to address industry demand for accurate and timely electronic display news and information.
“The acquisition of Display Daily gives JPR a natural extension of its news coverage and reach, allowing us to chase pixels from conception to delivery. JPR is also looking forward to additional insightful electronic display articles from Bob Raikes,” said Jon Peddie, president of Jon Peddie Research. JPR provides consulting, research, and other specialized services to technology companies in various fields, including graphics development, multimedia for professional applications and consumer electronics, high-end computing, and Internet-access product development.
The highly successful Display Daily was founded and run by one of the most respected names in the industry, Bob Raikes. His industry experience and unique focus on display technologies used in computing, mobile, television, digital content creation, and digital signage will augment JPR’s industry coverage. Industry insiders depend on Raikes’ insightful assessment of the electronic display market status, trends, opportunities, and threats through the Display Daily newsletter, blog, and website reports on the industry, its companies, and products.
“I am pleased that Display Daily will be joining JPR’s impressive stable of titles and professional content that can only bring more value to its readers and customers,” commented Bob Raikes.
JPR can now provide an end-to-end solution for the graphics industry, from creation at the GPU and computing level to delivery on a screen, head-mounted display (HMD), television, digital billboards, and more.
As the graphics industry evolves from local to remote processing with the increasing adoption of cloud computing services, the opportunities for high-quality graphics to reach an audience is expanding beyond what can be achieved solely with local computing power. As a result, JPR is now uniquely positioned to identify the key trends that will shape the market for every display device.
JPR views this acquisition as the final piece of the puzzle. Through the addition of Display Daily, JPR can now offer a unique perspective on what people can do with computers, mobile devices, and more. Driven by the quality of the user experience, device popularity and sales often depend on high-quality graphics and displays.
