55" LG OLED TVThe latest LG OLED TV, the world’s largest at 55″ will be unveiled at CES 2012 in Las Vegas. LG Display has apparently discovered a less expensive way of producing OLED display panels. Previous OLED TV displays used Low Temperature Poly Silicon (LTPS), which uses amorphous silicon. The LG 55-inch TV is using a technology called Oxide Thin Film Transistor (TFT). LG stated that the Oxide TFT produces the same image quality of high performance LTPS but at a greatly reduced cost.

According to the press release, “The LG Display’s 55-inch OLED TV panel produces high image quality with no after image due to its high reaction velocity, as well as high contrast ratio of over 100,000:1 and wider colour gamut than that produced by LCD panels. LG Display uses White OLED (WOLED). WOLED vertically accumulates red, green, and blue diodes. With white colour light emitting from the diode, it displays screen information through colour layers below the TFT base panel. This leads to a lower error rate, higher productivity, and a clearer Ultra Definition screen via the benefits of small pixels.”

The LG OLED TV at 55″ is a major breakthrough in OLED TV technology and at only 5mm thick, will be a stunning piece of equipment. Make sure to check back in here during CES 2012 from January 10th to the 13th to get the latest LG OLED TV specs, videos, availability and pricing.

 

Good news from Samsung for those waiting for a decent size OLED TV. Samsung has signed a 6 year deal with Universal Display to use their OLED patents and supply OLED display materials.

“In a two-part structure, Samsung pays license fees for the right to dip into Universal Display’s cache of phosphorescent OLED patents and also pays the company to supply OLED materials along the way.”

Samsung Mobile Display has opened  1300mm x 1500mm 5.5 AMOLED production lines this month. These new lines are the first worldwide and will benefit Samsung by increasing supply into a shortage of AMOLED panels as well as helping it start up OLED TV production possibly next year.

The following interview on the future of OLED TV was provided by Erich Strasser from oled-display.net 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.
