    Hi dose anyone know what is happening to Panasonics 2016 OLED line up?
    I have heard from JL and other retailers they are stopping production due to cost?

    At this stage there is no word on Panasonic's plans for OLED in 2016. Hopefully they will announce something either way soon.

    I would like to restart the discussion. Had a talk with a pana rep which is hinting to a massive restart of the pana Oled range to be announced at 2016 IFA in sept

    This could be aligned with what was discussed By pana senior exec in 2015. It stated that Oled was very much aligned with pana strategy and due to be cheaper within 2-3 years...

    A 55 pana Oled could be all I ever need ;-)

    Anyone heard any news?

    On this note. Any news from Sony or pana about Oled?

    Don't understand why it is so quiet before a major even in sept. Unless they are waiting for the Jan event.

    Never seen a year with such blackout or embargo of news!!!

    In a sense, it also gives me confidence that everyone is playing poker and keeping cards close to the chest...few weeks to go

    I highly doubt sony is gonna announce a OLED with there Z9 just getting released as that would kill the sales of the Z9 unless the Oled is 8K like the pany was

    Panasonic is dead to me. If they can throw away a market as sizable as the US (even though we're slipping into third world status), others can't be far behind.

    Interesting statement indeed and I mean that in the right way.

    Still, for now, an Oled tailored by pana or Sony electronics and know how will always be my favourite choice even if they are extinct

    I am still kicking myself for not getting a plasma...and making half my family and friends buy one :)

    A 55 or 58 Oled at £2500 or less will be very good (2990 launch). The 65 could be around 4K-4.5k at launch indeed

    I heard enough myself to know it is a strong possibility. I just dont know if they will stick to 55 or 58 as panels from lg

    Taken from another thread :thumbsup:

    I spoke to the Panasonic rep and he said there is a big announcement coming quite soon. I'm guessing it's about OLED so it makes sense to wait and see what develops.

    same here 55" - 58" would also go well within my setup :D
