According to ETNews, Skyworth recently introduced an OLED TV that uses panels produced by BOE Display . If this is correct, then this is the first TV since 2013 that does not use an LGD OLED panel. According to the report, Skyworth will start shipping these TVs in China and Europe (under the Metz brand) in 2017. 55-inch OLED TV prototypes, BOE 2014 In the past Skyworth used LGD panels for its OLED TVs. In December 2015 the company launched its latest OLED and OLED HDR TVs , and back then Skyworth said it aims to sell 30,000 OLED TVs by the end of March 2016 (the company’s FY2015) – and hopes to sell 200,000 OLED TVs by the end of March 2017 . Skyworth said its main problem with those OLEDs is that LG Display cannot supply them with enough panels , especially the 65″ ones – so now it seems Skyworth found its answer with BOE Display.

Researchers believe that they have made a major step towards proving carbon capture and storage is viable. A team in Washington State injected liquified CO2 into a basalt formation — rock that forms after a lava flow has cooled. Two years later, and…
Japan Display developed a new foldable device concept that uses two thin-bezel LCD displays. JDI is working with a Chinese smartphone maker to introduce such a device in the summer of 2017. To create those thin-bezel displays, JDI collaborated with Minebea and other companies to use a specially designed backlight and LCD panel.The frame is less than 1mm wide, which means that the gap between the two displays is less than 2mm.

When the nice guys from LG’s Israeli public relations office reach out and offer to send an OLED TV for a review – you say yes. Naturally, I graciously accepted and received a new 65″ OLEDB6 TV . Here’s my hands-on review of LG’s new TV. The OLEDB6 was launched in early 2016, and is actually LG’s entry-level OLED TV for 2016, alongside the curved OLEDC6. The B6 features a flat 4K WRGB (WOLED-CF) OLED panel, LG’s latest WebOS 3.0 operation system, HDR support and LG’s Color Prime Pro technology. The TV does not support 3D, but strangely LG did bundle a couple of passive 3D glasses with the TV. The B6 comes in two sizes – 55″ and 65″. Read more about Hands-on review of LG's 65" OLEDB6 TV

Flexible OLED technology and VR headset developer Royole announced that it received a $80 million series Pre-D funding from the Warmsun Holding Group. Royole raised around $280 million since its inception in 2012 – and the current valuation is set at around $3 billion! So what does Royole do to justify such a lofty valuation? A couple of months ago Royole launched its first product, the Royole Moon foldable VR headset – that uses OLED microdisplays to achieve a PPI of over 3,000. The $799 Moon also includes noise-cancelling headphones and runs on the company’s own Moon OS. Read more about Royole raises $80 million, reaches a valuation of around $3 billion

This book highlights the display applications of c-axis aligned crystalline indium–gallium–zinc oxide (CAAC-IGZO), a new class of oxide materials for thin film semiconductor devices. CAAC-IGZO has been co-developed by Sharp and Semiconductor Energy Laboratory to dramatically lower the power consumption of high-end displays. SEL successfully fabricated CAAC-OS prototype backplane, and the company demonstrated several novel CAAC-OS AMOLEDs, including a foldable OLED (together with Nokia), a 13.3″ 8K (664 PPI) AMOLED , a 81″ 8K tiled flexible OLED and a hybrid OLED-reflective-LCD prototype . In May 2016 Japan Display announced it will co-develop next-gen CAAC-IGZO backplane technologies with SEL . The book offers the latest IGZO data, introduces different different oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor designs and their impact on the reliability and performance of LCDs and OLED displays, reviews fundamentals and presents device architectures for high-performance and flexible OLED displays and explains how oxide semiconductor thin-film transistors drastically can improve resolution and lower power consumption of LCDs.

OLEDs make for better displays because they draw less power and provide much nicer color reproduction. The only thing stopping them from being on every smartphone in the world is that they're a hassle to make. It's one of the reasons that an OLED iPh…

The Korea Herald reports that famed industrial designer Ross Lovegrove (who has designed Sony’s Walkman, Apple’s iMac and also worked with Airbus, Peugeot and Huawei) is currently working with LG Display to design an OLED lighting installation. Ross’s lighting structure will be an affordable OLED lamp for general household lighting – and it will be introduced next year. The installation will be unveiled next year at the Salone del Mobile (April 2017). Read more about Ross Lovegrove is designing an affordable household OLED lamp for LGD
Futaba demonstrated a new transparent PMOLED prototype display that it aims to release commercially next month. The ELA0502AAGS is a segmented monochrome (white, blue or amber) T-OLED that features high transparency (80%). The display has a glass outline of 22 x 20 mm and the active area diameter is 0.59″. The pixel size is about 50 um. The display is very bright at 1,000 cd/m 2 . The demonstrated display has a battery icon, 4 characters and a cross hair in the middle – this is obviously aimed for telescopic sights.

The Nikkei reports that JOLED aims to start producing prototype OLED panels in the second half of 2017. JOLED developed a 21.6″ UHD panel and actually aims to start offering the panel in 2017 to medical monitor makers and other commercial applications. JOLED is using a printing based process and it is estimated that production costs will be 30% to 40% lower than evaporation based processes – but the performance of soluble OLED materials are not yet up to par with evaporation materials. The panels are made on an Oxide-TFT backplane, and the process is optimized for 10 to 30 inch panels. JOLED expects to achieve mass production in FY2018 (April 2018 to March 2019).
