organic led (oled) soon to dominate hdtv market
Technology has been a star at this year\'s Electronic trade show.
At the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas this year, Sony launched the OLED display, the biggest product.
The new 11 \"Sony TV is called\" XEL-1\".
Sony hd TV is very thin (Less than 1/10 \")and light-weight.
At the November FPD International exhibition in Asia, Samsung launched a 31-inch oled hd TV with a resolution of 1080P and a contrast of 1,000,000: 1.
Companies like LG, Toshiba and Panasonic (Panasonic)
Hundreds of millions of dollars are being invested to develop this promising technology.
Toshiba plans to sell a 30-inch OLED display in 2009.
Samsung said it will sell large-screen OLED in 2010. Eastman-
Kodak has a number of patents in OLED technology.
Manufacturers may need to pay Kodak license fees for each oled TV sold. Eastman-
Kodak has just launched OLED material EK-
GD403 using green doping technology.
Technological advances are a stampede.
A lot of money to make.
According to display search, the market for LCD TVs was estimated at $27 in 2007.
4 billion, while the plasma TV market is estimated to be $7. 5 billion.
The cost-competitive oled TV may have a big share in the market.
Display search estimates that the OLED market will grow by more than $17 billion a year by 2015.
According to iSuppli, there are currently slightly more than half of OLED devices in the market.
Billions of dollars a year.
Samsung currently has a market share of 70%.
However, due to cost and technical problems, OLED cannot be used for large devices such as high-definition TVs or computer monitors. Easy Wall-
Most consumers say they want a wall-mounted HDTV.
However, according to the NPD Group, a consumer and retail market research information company (NPD. com)
At present, only 13% of LCD TV users and 25% of plasma TV users say their TV sets are installed on the wall.
\"Consumers are flat
Panel technology for their walls
But the difficulty of this installation often leads them to explore alternatives such as stand or retailer installation.
Ross Rubin, director of industry analysis at The NPD Group, said.
But with OLED, it will be much easier to install the hardware, more like hanging a picture on the wall.
The weight of the hardware is only a small part of the LCD or plasma.
OLED displays have been used for a while in devices with relatively small panels such as digital cameras, mobile phones, etc. , because they are very energy efficient, which is very important in portable devices.
Compared with traditional LCD displays, OLED displays have significant advantages (LCDs)
No backlight is required for Oled functions.
Because of this, they have much less power.
The OLED display is much thinner than the LCD display due to no backlight.
Since there is no backlight, the OLED system has a larger viewing angle than the LED system, and the OLED display can be much thinner than the LCD display.
OLED responds faster than a normal LCD screen.
The average response time of the LCD is 8 to 12 Ms compared to 0 is normal.
The response time of OLED is 01 Ms.
This means that OLED will not be affected by \"blur.
When there is fast motion in programming, such as motion, there will be blur.
Pixels respond to lag when the picture changes quickly.
One problem limiting OLED use is the short life span of the blue OLED technology, but a new type of blue LED \"PHOLED\" has 20,000-hour lifetime (20-
25 years normal use of TV).
This is a major breakthrough in commercializing this technology for the high-definition TV market.
In theory, OLED displays can be made more efficiently than LCD or plasma displays, meaning they shouldn\'t be as expensive. The Sony XEL-
1 sells for $2500, but you should keep in mind that the first large LCD and plasma display is much more expensive when it comes out for the first time.
If production costs can be reduced, the price of oled hd TV should eventually be cheaper than LCD TV.
OLED performance advantage: if OLED does not fulfill its promise, it will not be the first hd TV monitor to do so.
Remember the surface-
Transmitter display (SED TV)?
Toshiba and Canon are ready to go into production, but with a Nano-
Proprietary technology kills technology.
This time may not happen.
The manufacturing process will be the main obstacle.
If the unit can manufacture the cost-
It competes with LCD and plasma TV and should become very interesting.
