Corning today announced the commercial launch of Corning Lotus XT Glass, a second-generation glass substrate specially formulated for high-performance displays. Lotus XT Glass features best-in-class total pitch variation, which is integral to efficient panel manufacturing. Essentially, total pitch – usually measured in microns or parts per million (ppm) – is the distance features move during panel processing.

LG will begin accepting pre-orders for its 55-inch (54.6-inch diagonal) Curved OLED TV (Model 55EA9800) in South Korea, with deliveries to begin next month. More than 1,400 LG retail stores in South Korea will begin taking orders today from customers for the premium TV, priced at KRW 15 million ($ 13,500). Only 4.3 millimeters (0.17 inches) thin and weighing just 17 kilograms (37.48 pounds), LG’s Curved OLED TV produces astoundingly vivid and realistic images thanks to its proprietary WRGB technology. The unique Four-Color Pixel system features a white sub-pixel, which works in conjunction with the conventional red, blue, green setup to create the perfect color output.
AUO will demonstrate at China Information Technology Expo & China Optoelectronics Display Expo 2013, its display applications and technologies focusing on the ultra-high resolution, super narrow bezel, high performance touch solution, and diverse applications & technologies with high added value. Among them, AUO will debut the 5-inch Full HD OLED smartphone display with resolutions as high as 443 ppi the highest resolution OLED in the world. The OLED panel is made by the fine shadow mask process . It not only features low power consumption, and high picture quality, but is also equipped with high contrast, high brightness, fast response time, and free viewing angle, providing the best visual experiences to viewers.
Samsung reinforced its superior technology leadership, receiving the world’s first picture quality validation for the unrivaled picture quality of its 55” OLED TV, UL, a global independent safety science company, presented the validation. The validation is the first for any OLED TV in the industry and highlights Samsung’s leadership in the development of next-generation technology. Throughout the extensive validation process, Samsung’s underwent a number of tests including assessments on basic picture elements such as brightness, color and uniformity. Given the distinct and unique picture quality of an OLED TV, UL also adopted a new testing method: Emotional Image Quality Evaluation.
Samsung display OLED panels’ production crosses 300-million-Equivalent to more than 68 times the height of Mt. Everest if stacked on top of each other
Samsung Display has passed the 300-million mark in cumulative production of OLED panels on January 24. Piling all of the 300 million OLED panels on top of one another would be equivalent to more than 68 times the height of Mt. Everest (8,848 m). It took four and a half years for Samsung Display to reach the 100-million level. But, thereafter, it achieved the 200-million goal in 11 months and 300 million in seven months. At present, Samsung Display commands a market share of 98 percent in the global OLED market.
Today at the 2013 CES Samsung unveiled Samsung’s Curved OLED TV, breaking the barrier of innovation in home entertainment. The curved OLED panel provides depth to the content displayed for a more life-like viewing experience.
Panasonic has developed a 56-inch organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panel with 4k2k resolution (3,840 x 2,160 resolution, 8.29 million pixels), the world’s largest OLED panel produced through the RGB all-printing method. In the production of the OLED panel, Panasonic is utilizing the RGB all-printing method, which allows for the separate application of the red, green and blue OLED materials by means of printing, and has developed the equipment and process technologies to apply the materials uniformly to a large substrate. In addition, with Panasonic’s proprietary top emission structure with a transparent cathode, which can extract light more efficiently, it has been possible to achieve the world’s largest 56-inch RGB all-printing method-based 4k2k OLED panel with excellent color reproduction and a wide viewing angle.
LG today demonstrated its continued OLED TV market leadership with a revolutionary curved model, the EA9800, shown for the first time at the 2013 International CES. Featuring proprietary WRGB technology, the incredibly thin display features a dramatic curved design and a vivid picture quality that is practically indiscernible from colors found in nature. The unique new EA9800 model features the industry’s very first curved screen ergo-nomic design with full CINEMA 3D support. With a gentle inward flex, the entire screen surface is equidistant from the viewer’s eyes, removing the problem of screen-edge visual distortion and detail loss.
The 55-inch OLED TV also offers an infinite contrast ratio, which maintains optimal contrast levels regard-less of ambient brightness or viewing angle. To complement the infinite contrast ratio and enable the richest color and deepest black expression, the High Dynamic Range (HDR) algorithm has been incorporated. This technology also ensures contrast ratio consistency and maximum color separation.
The LG EA9800’s streamlined, ultra-modern design and curved screen re-move any hint of visual distraction to maximize the viewing experience. Carbon Fiber-Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) has been implemented to further reduce unit weight and add additional strength to the beautifully curved screen. A minimal bezel helps to produce a truly immersive 2D and 3D viewing experience. For installation versatility, the new model al-so ships with an easy-to-mount wall bracket that allows a single person to complete the entire installation. With less than a one-inch gap between wall and TV, LG’s design masterpiece can now be displayed like a true work of art. Availability and pricing of the curved OLED TV were not announced.
South Korean and German police are probing the disappearance of two next-generation Samsung TVs en route to Berlin, amid suspicions of commercial espionage. Two Samsung organic light-emitting diode (OLED) sets were lost during delivery to Berlin for an Aug 31-Sept 5 technology trade fair. The Korean and German authorities are currently conducting an investigation on the disappearance of the OLED televisions. These state-of-the-art televisions from Samsung have not been officially released in the market. As these TVs are based on such cutting-edge technology owned by only a few firms, Samsung feels it was part of a crime aimed to steal it.
Sony and Panasonic have signed an agreement regarding the joint development of next-generation OLED (organic light-emitting diode) panels and modules for TVs and large-sized displays. Sony and Panasonic plan to jointly develop next-generation OLED panels and modules by each utilizing their core and printing technologies. They plan to jointly develop printing method-based next-generation OLED technology, which will be suitable for low-cost mass production of large, high resolution OLED panels and modules.
LG ushered in a new era of television with the unveiling of the world’s largest and slimmest 55-inch OLED TV on European soil at Monaco’s renowned Salle des Etoiles. In front of an audience of 400 dealers, journalists and special guest F1 champion Sebastian Vettel, LG officials vowed to develop the most advanced commercial OLED TV in the market and to be the first company to bring these TVs to European consumers in the second half of the year.
