Sony’s OLED display is 0.3mm thick and can bent

The paper-thin 0.3mm Sony’s OLED is not new to US, it was displayed back in April at Japan. I’m sure the OLED fans can’t wait to see what Sony has to offer in CEATEC 2008. Unfortunately, there isn’t any groundbreaking news from Sony but a sight twist of physical display. A curved version of the OLED screen is being exhibited at the show.

Matsushita promise 40-inch OLED HDTVs on-sale by 2011

Matsushita has stuck its large-size display neck on the line and announced it intends to be selling 40-inch OLED HDTVs by 2011.  As a result it has spent an estimated $930m on an OLED panel mass production plant based in Himeji, Japan; that should begin producing panels in 2010, based on the findings from a different, prototype production line ramping up early next year that will produce 20-inch and larger OLEDs.

AMOLED nozzle-printing method tipped to reduce next-gen panel costs

DuPont and Dainippon Screen have announced a partnership deal to develop the next generation of AMOLED (active matrix organic light-emitting diode) display panels. The collaboration will see the latter's unique nozzle-printing technology, in which AMOLED panels are printed at high-speed, used with the former's small molecule-based OLED solution materials and proprietary process technology. Eventually, they aim to reduce production costs so that AMOLED manufacture is competitive with current LCD plants.

Sony OLED TV to lose brightness in half the claimed time say researchers

Sony's XEL-1 OLED TV is undeniably awesome, despite being only 11-inches, but owners may have less time to coo and weep over its beauty than they originally thought.  According to a report from DisplaySearch, which goes into even more surgical detail than at the Embedded Systems Conference, Sony's lifespan estimate of around 30,000 hours for the 3mm-thick TV is wildly inaccurate.  Instead, the researchers are suggesting a total lifespan of around 17,000 hours before the screen loses 50-percent of its brightness.

Sony to invest $200 million in OLED Flatpanel

If you are disappointing with the current development of OLED display, full of promises but pricey and not big enough to fill your wall, Sony just shells out additional 22 billion yen ($203 million) pledges to expend its OLED line of display with medium to large sizes.

OLED is not DOA yet

OLED is not DOA yet

I read the Toshiba's announcement to put a halt on current OLED TV development due to higher production cost and power consumption with dismay. Not exactly a cease operation but delaying until year of 2009 or 2010 and wait for the demand on display market. It would be a while before I can afford an ultra thin, 100,000:1 contrast Ratio display.

Samsung is bringing out their OLED TV’s to play at CES

In fact, it won’t be just any old OLED TV, it will be the worlds largest at 40-inches. Personally, I would have thought the World’s Largest TV and 40-inches wouldn’t have ever been in the same sentence, but alas, it is, and that still makes this TV larger than Sony’s XEL-1 OLED TV.
