Panasonic unveiled new 65″ 4K OLED TV prototypes at the IFA 2014 trade show. These are just concept models (panels in a stand), and the company’s director of home entertainment business says Panasonic is waiting for IFA attendees feedback before they decide to release those commercially. It is rather surprising to see Panasonic show these TVs. Sony and Panasonic halted their OLED TV joint development project in December 2013 , and later on Panasonic (with Sony and the INCJ) formed a new company, JOLED , to develop small/medium OLED panels. Panasonic’s OLED TV program development was probably halted, or slowed-down at best. Read more about Panasonic shows 65" 4K OLED TV prototypes

Will OLED lighting save the world? LG Chem seems to think so, or at least they do according to this promotional OLED video they released last month: Besides being funny (weird?), this video sends out the current marketing message that is being used by several OLED lighting companies – of how OLED lighting provides the most natural light.

In June 2013, Cambridge University and Plastic Logic announced a research collaboration that aimed to develop transparent graphene-based backplanes for flexible displays . Now, following this collaboration, Plastic Logic demonstrated the world’s first flexible display that uses a graphene backplane. The first prototype is a 150 PPI active-matrix E Ink display, in which the electrodes were made from solution-processed graphene (patterned after deposition) in a low-temperature (less than 100 degrees Celsius) process. The UK Technology Strategy Board recently gave a grant towards this research, with an aim to develop full-color OLED displays within the next 12 months.

Chunghwa Picture Tubes (CPT) had some pretty interesting prototype OLED displays shown at the Touch Taiwan 2014 trade show last month. We do not have any information regarding how close are these prototypes to commercialization. So first up is a flexible AMOLED display . This panel is 4.8″ in size and 720×240 resolution (158 PPI). The company did not reveal any more technical details. The company also showed some simpler flexible PMOLED panels, demonstrating their sealing capabilities by immersing them under water (see image below).

This isn’t a big surprise, but LG said it will soon stop producing Plasma (PDP) panels, and the company is expected to officially announce this soon. As LG sees OLED TV as the future TV technology, it’s likely that more resources will be devoted now to towards OLED TV development. The other two major PDP makers, Panasonic and Samsung, already stopped producing these panes, leaving China’s Changhong as the single plasma producer.
