We’re thrilled to announce that HARMAN’s QLED Auto solution has been recognized in the User Experience category in Fast Company’s 2019 Innovation by Design Awards. Each year, the awards feature the top design in business, from products to buildings to UX. With more than 4,300 entries from the industry’s most innovative design companies, this year marked a record for the awards program.

In a world where digital is at the forefront of transforming user experiences, consumers now expect the same kind of personalized experience both on their mobile devices and in their cars. In partnership with Samsung, the world leader in QLED display manufacturing, HARMAN delivers the same immersive user experiences that consumers receive both in their homes and on the go – all within a vehicle’s cockpit. The HARMAN-Samsung QLED Auto solution significantly enhances consumers' comfort and convenience levels, allowing them to increasingly see and use their cars as an extension of their own homes.


The HARMAN-Samsung QLED Auto solution is the first of its kind to introduce automotive-grade, zero-cadmium Quantum-Dot Light-Emitting-Diode (QLED) technology. The wider color gamut displays are critical for safety and for enhancing the customer experience – which is especially critical, as the automotive world transitions from the connected car into the autonomous realm. HARMAN also partnered with Samsung to deliver flexible lighting into the automotive market, offering additional flexible and transparent OLED technologies for automotive applications.
