OLED televisions are notoriously expensive and difficult to make; but like all technologies there is always someone working on making the technology cheaper. DuPont recently announced the development of a new process that prints OLED screens in sheets, much like a inkjet prints on paper.
This means that DuPont could possibly produce a 50-inch screen in under two minutes, resulting in a product that is cheap and reliable. Of course, this technology is in it’s infancy so there’s really not much information about when we should expect to see these new screens, and DuPont hasn’t had much to say on the subject. It’s a pretty safe bet that we won’t see these any time before summer 2011.
