The following interview on the future of OLED TV was provided by Erich Strasser from Check the links at the bottom of the post for the full interview..

In an interview with Barry Young the managing director of the OLED-Association we got some insider information. The big question is when we will see cost competitive OLED TV  panels which can compete to LCD and Plasma HDTVs.

Barry Young explain also the technical issues which have to be solved! In 2012 Barry sees 30 to 40 inch OLED-Television devices in 1 to 2 million volume but the price will be very high.
In 2013 and 2014 Barry Young sees 5 to 6 million AMOLED TV’s. In 2015 we will see 10 to 15 million Organic Television devices which are very competitive to LCD and Plasma devices.

LG, Sony and Samsung plan OLED-Television devices in the next few years. LG-Display plans to ramp up a 8 gen OLED production line to produce 55-inch OLED-Tv in 2011-2012.

Samsung Mobile Display recently showed off a rollable, 0.2 mm thick OLED display. This is only a very tiny screen but it certainly gets the imagination going. Check out the very bizarre video below:

Samsung plans to commercialize this technology by 2013 and introduce rollable OLED TVs to consumers. I’ll believe that when I see it. There have been so many OLED TV announcements over the past couple of years that it’s hard to get much enthusiasm going when almost all the announcements by all the OLED manufacturers turn out to be nothing.

There are a number of reasons for this, most notably production difficulties and current cost to consumers. With new production facilities in the works we can hope that 2011 will bring some solid achievments in terms of getting decent sized OLED TVs into stores and homes at a reasonably high price.


Samsung recently exhibited a 19″ OLED TV with a panel produced by an inkjet method.  It is not full HD but has a 960 x 540 pixel panel. You can bet this will not be in stores for the holidays but it is an important step forward in OLED TV technology.

Producing larger panels efficiently and cost effectively has been a major roadblock so far in the development of consumer ready OLED TVs.  A number of companies have been working on a printing process for OLED panels but this is probably the first TV exhibited using this process.

LG is showing, among tons of other fantastic new displays, its new 31″ 3D OLED TV.

“For a peek at the future of Home Entertainment, LG will be displaying its revolutionary OLED TVs at IFA, including a new 31-inch 3D model with a depth of just 0.29 cm, the slimmest of any comparable set in the world. Dispensing with back-screen lighting, OLED TVs’ pixels generate their own light to produce an entirely new level of color, clarity and depth of blacks. Pencil-thin and exceptionally light, LG’s OLED TVs are an elegant addition to practically any environment and surface, as the ceiling-mounted sets in the LG OLED zone at IFA can attest. Demonstrating the extraordinary possibilities for 3D on an OLED TV, the 31-inch 3D model seduces viewers into a world with a level of detail that is a wonder to behold. ”

OLED TV may not prevail according to speakers at the LED 2009 conference in San Diego.

LED edge-lit and LED back-lit LCD TVs will ship in ever increasing volumes.

“Keynote speaker Bruce Berkoff, chairman of the LCD TV Association, claimed that analysts are significantly underestimating the demand both for LCD TVs in general and specifically for LED-based, edge-lit, LCD TVs. Berkoff quipped, “In the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) and Vista (Vietnam, Indonesia, South Africa, Turkey and Argentina) countries, people will buy LCD TVs before they buy indoor plumbing.”

LCD TVs are becoming a commodity and LED backlighting allows manufacturers to charge a higher price.

“While the speakers shared a positive outlook on LEDs in LCD TVs, they also expressed doubts about the viability of OLED TV. Shin, Jacobs and Berkoff all believe that enhancements are coming so fast to LCD TVs that the OLED market will be stymied. Berkoff stated, “The best technologies don’t always win.”"

If you’ve followed the sagas of the Sony Beta VCR or the Canon SED TV at all, you’ll know that line is accurate.

It remains to be seen how successful OLED TV will be with increased competition from LED backlit LCD TVs.
