Kodak has opted to use Chi Mei EL (CMEL) OLED displays in their digital photo frames. In fact, the 7.6-inch OLED displays, made by CMEL, which is owned by the standard LCD maker Chi Mei Optoelectronics, will begin to enter production in September.
This should provide plenty of time for the completed displays to be delivered to Kodak and to prep for the much anticipated holiday season. And even though digital photo frames run the gamut of price ranges, these OLED offerings are thought to be quite pricey.
The higher price tag is most likely due to the more sought-after technology, which uses less energy, provides sharper images and brighter color and has a thinner cross section. These OLED-using digital photo frames may very well be targeted to the high-end market and should see the light of day at the end of the year.
