Discussion in 'LCD & LED LCD TVs' started by la gran siete, Aug 2, 2005.
Possibly, but when are they going to be available and for how much? There is also SED at some point on the horizon. The thing is, once these are out and about, there will be some new and improved technology just around the corner, so shouldn't we wait for that instead?
Going to be a few years yet i imagine before OLED flat panels go into volume production, the problem is that the Blue component of the OLED wears out really really quickly, in just a thousand or so hours if that.
I'm pinning my hopes on SED, it seems to be the best of CRT and Flat Panel Tech
Also being organic-LED's they don't work on Friday afternoons, Saturday nights and are a bit slow to respond on Saturday and SUnday morning
Nice one Ian.
Organic, just like humans are - organic lifeforms.
Still not get it?
Oh, I give up!
Ah, the penny has finally dropped!
"Samsung's OLED is due next year."
Samsung's new organic monitor may compete head-on with existing LCD technology
Samsung SDI, the Korean giant's display division, has announced prototypes of a 17-inch active matrix organic light emitting diode (OLED) display. Due for launch next year, the display has a resolution of 1600x1200 pixels and a brightness of 400 lumens, and is the largest OLED matrix display to date according to the company.
It will consume no more power than a 15-inch display and be a third of the thickness of existing LCD models, the company said. The prototype will be shown at the 2004 Society for Information Display (SID) conference, taking place from 25th May in Seattle.
The displays are made using a transfer technology developed by Samsung and 3M, where the pattern of plastic pixels on the screen is printed by scanning a laser across a set of organic films. This can produce a larger screen than is possible by the alternative method of spraying the plastic through a patterned shadow mask, says the company, while allowing a similar precision.
Organic LEDs are luminescent plastic semiconductors with the theoretical potential to replace LCDs, CRTs and other display technologies through greater efficiency, easier production, more physical flexibility and lower cost. To date, however, problems with device lifetime, chemistry and production have limited their use to mobile devices and backlights. Samsung's basic OLED technology was licenced from Kodak and developed in conjunction with NEC, which sold its stake in the joint venture to Samsung at the beginning of 2004.
Well, there we go - fancy laptop and mobile phone displays somtime in the next 3 years while they perfect the manufacturing process to allow larger panels to be made defect free, in about 5 years time!
So, LCD TVs it is then...well, for most of us jumping to flat panels sooner than later.
