  • TDK Shows Off Transparent Bistable OLED Mobile Display

    The transparent display wars are yet to begin, since everyone is still prepping their devices, but that doesn’t stop the big guys like TDK and Samsung from throwing a little PR party every once in a while to let you know they’re still on the task. Today TDK released info on a new display, the UEL476, that’s a bit different from the rest. Read More

  • Toshiba Protoypes Ultra-Thin, Rollable OLED

    It’s not the first flexible screen we have covered in recent years, but it’s the first one from Toshiba. The company has developed a 3-inch OLED panel that’s 0.1mm thin and weighs just 1g (pictured). Apart from the size and weight, the main selling point of the OLED is that it can retain picture quality over a long period of time, according to a recent report in The… Read More

  • Sony's Outs Two New OLED Monitors

    It took Sony just two months to update its TRIMASTER series of (pretty expensive) OLED monitors, and the two new professional displays the company announced [JP] today (a 25-inch model for $7,400 and a 17-incher for $,4900) are more affordable than the first ones (which went for $16,000 and $29,000, respectively).

  • Fraunhofer OLED Display Takes Pictures Simultaneously

    A while back there was a crazy company trying to sell space cameras that could take pictures right onto a CPU that also acted as a display. Those people were insane, but this concept device is far from it. Fraunhofer, creators of MP3 technology, have built an OLED chip with built-in video sensor. That means you can take pictures and show pictures at the same time. It basically overlays two… Read More

  • Sony Announces TRIMASTER OLED Monitors

    It has become a bit quiet about OLED lately (apart from the NGP announcement), but today Sony announced [JP] not one but two so-called TRIMASTER EL master monitors with an OLED display. There will be a 25-inch (BVM-E250) and a 17-inch model (BVM-E170), specifically aimed at TV and movie production companies. Read More

  • Apple Looking Into OLED Integration With New Patents

    One of the rumors we haven’t heard about the iPad 2 is an OLED screen. That’s because there’s pretty much no chance, and it would be incredibly expensive and difficult to manufacture by the million. But that doesn’t mean Apple isn’t at least thinking about the power-economizing, great-looking display tech. These patents show that they’re working on… Read More

  • New Flexible AMOLED Screen Is A Tenth Of A Millimeter Thick

    We’ve seen some thin, flexible displays out there (TDK, Sony, LG, HP, and others are working on them), but I do believe this one is the thinnest yet. The others have gotten as thin as 0.3mm, but this one from Taiwanese research company ITRI is a microscopic 0.1mm. Who knows, that last 0.2mm could be the difference that makes a breakthrough device possible. Hopefully not literally… Read More

  • Video: TDK's Amazing See-Through OLED Display Up And Close

    One of the highlights of this year’s CEATEC (a technology exhibition that took place in Japan earlier this month and which we covered extensively) was TDK’s booth. The company showed two prototypes of passive matrix mini OLED panels, one of which is transparent and the other flexible (like the one Sony showed earlier this year). Read More

  • CEATEC 2010: Eyes-On With TDK's Bendable And Transparent OLEDs (Video)

    A pleasant surprise at this year’s CEATEC: TDK’s two passive matrix mini OLED panels, one of which is transparent and the other bendable (like the one Sony showed earlier this year). What’s cool is that both prototypes are showcased as black-and-white and color models. You can see both displays in action in the videos I took at the exhibition below. Read More

  • Toshiba Decides To Give Up OLED Production

    Just when everyone thought OLED screens would constitute the third of innovation for flat panel TVs (following LED backlit TVs and 3D capability), Toshiba just made a surprise decision. According to Japanese business daily The Nikkei, Toshiba has entirely given up previous plans to mass-produce OLED screens. Read More
