    OLED- TV technology of the future

    OLED= Organic Light-Emitting Diodes

    This technology is currently in prototype TV wise. Essentially its characteristics that define it from the norm of plasma and LCD is that it creates its own light, meaning it does not need a backlight like plasma tv's do. Which as a result increases its contrast ratio 100 fold from the best of LCD displays commercially available. It can be easily viewed from all angles and in bright sunlight, with greatly improved picture quality.




    Another remarkable feature is its thickness, the display itself can be as thin as 3mm, paper thin to be more spefic. This brings brand new areas for TV production. TV"s can be part of your clothing, a wall decoration, a page in your book, as scroll, or essentially a TV itself (and a high picture quality one that is). People may think this is more fragile than a snowflake, however that is not the case. Protected by sturdy plastic, it can literally be bent to a 40* angle and yet produce a vibrant image. It can be viewed from all angles and has a framerate response of 0.01ms (1000 times faster than a normal plasma TV).

    However there are certain drawbacks, the most notable is its lifespan. So far in prototypes lasting a mere 5,000 hours (or 20,000 in PHOLEDs), lower than plasma tv's. And moisture can damage the organic display which may lead manufactures in sealing, leading to less flexibility and longevity.

    You may be thinking, 'my god, this will take a HUGE chunk out of my bank account!'. However this is not the case, they are cheap. Cheaper than LCD displays of iits size, as manufacturing costs are not that expensive. Keep an eye out for this technology in 2009, when its predictively available to the general market.

    LCD's use a backlight not plasma.
    What about SED tv? SED is like flat crt + LCD without the pixel delay and half the power of a Plasma
    If I seem nice to you that is because I am.

    OLEDs emit their own light, therefore they have a far less power consumption rate than a normal plasma tv. Good considerations for the green future need to be thought!

    EDIT: i heard the new apple mac's will use this technology for their diplays, however not so large and there may be many flaws as the technology hasn't fully matured yet.

    Wow, that looks really sweet. Any price ideas if they are released? I noticed you say they are cheap.. but £10,000 could be cheap to you

    Depends on what kind of Big TV's you like. Currently OLED displays are 1.5 times the cost of an LCD TV its size. This is why companies stick to the phones/mp3 players for OLED displays. HOWEVER, it is predicted that the price will decrease alot when the technology and its production matures

    EDIT: and for you wiired, no $10,000 is not alot to me (/sarcasm)

    Very cool and thin tv... saves a bit of power too compared to plasmas! Thanks for sharing that.

    If anyone is curious about the flexibility here is a demonstration of the world's first flexible, full-color OLED display (developed by SONY).

    [MEDIA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7QbQugXy1A[/MEDIA]

    The 2.5-inch prototype display supports 16.8 million colors at a 120 x 160 pixel resolution, is 0.3 mm thick and weighs 1.5 grams.

    Wow! Talk about flexibility!

    I want to play my Wii on it now.
