IVAAIU, a Korean architectural design firm has applied OLED lighting panels (made by LG Chem) to a traditional Korean Hanok house. OLEDs were chosen because they offer excellent light quality (no UV, high CRI, no glare) and can be installed while maintaining the buildings as is. LG Chem tells us that they are currently seeking additional partnerships to further demonstrate the benefits that OLED lighting can bring to traditional architecture and heritage projects. It is great to see that OLED lighting can be used in such traditional settings – as it’s actually the most natural light source currently in use.

Display Makers OLED Oxide Tablet PC in 2015 – Thanks to Apples strategy change OXIDE OLED Displays will become popular
Thanks to Apple the major display makers LG-Display, Samsung-Display, JOLED plan to to commercializing oxide thin film Transistor TFT OLED and LCD Displays for Tablet PCs in Q2 2015. The korean industry says that Samsung Displays R&D line is developing Oxide TFT Technology for mid size Displays (Tablet-PCs). Also LG-Display plans to convert a R&D line for Oxide with AMOLED. The new japanese company JOLED (Sony, Panasonic, JDI) has also the goal to introduce mid size AMOLED Displays for Tablet Pcs. In 2014 the major companies are using amorphous silicon (a-si) to produce that kind of panels. Why the Display Makers want to develop OXIDE substrates? It is easy to describe because APPLE want to use the benefits of this technology lower power consumption and the companies can reduce the device thickness. Display makers also prefer oxide to LTPS substrate because the price of panels made with oxide substrate is relatively lower. Surprise Surprise Samsung Display and LG Display are planning a business strategies partnership to reach the goal to mass produce Oxide OLED in 2015.
Winstar Display Co. is a company from Taiwan, established in 1998 and has the focus to manufacturing and development of hiqh quality PM-OLED industrial displays products. Winstar is one of the leading company which delivers PMOLED for the industry. The company operate worldwide and not only OLEDs also TN/STN/FSTN LCM, COG LCD, FSC-LCD etc. The goal is also to resear & develop LCD and OLED Displays. Back in June 2014 Winstar the company hosted a seminar. There are two videos with the headlines “Winstar OLED Trend New Production Introduction” and “Winstar OLED Trend New Production Introduction”.

It feels like I’m writing the same post over and over again – LG lowers the price of their OLED TV again… Only 7 days ago I posted that LG’s 2013 OLED TV model, the 55EA9800 is down to $3,198. And I estimated that it’s likely we’ll see a 55″ OLED TV for less than $3,000 very soon. Well! That did not take long. Amazon is now offering the EA9800 for only $2,799 via online retailer MCMelectronics. LG recently launched their new 2014 55″ curved FHD model (the 55EC9300) for $3,499 . They probably do not produce the EA9800 no longer, so supply for the older model is probably limited. LG will also soon launch a 65″ 4K OLED, and this one will cost $6,999 .
The rest is here:

Winstar , a leading PMOLED producer from Taiwan, hosted a seminar in June 2014, and they gave two OLED lectures – describing their OLED products in the present and the future development expected from Winstar. There’s some interesting details in there. First of all, while Winstar is currently producing glass-based PMOLEDs, the company is also developing flexible PMOLED panels. One of the major challenges is encapsulation and Winstar is using ALD technology for this at the moment, developed in collaboration with ITRI .

Philips and the Jason Bruges Studio showcase a new design Project with OLED lighting panels. The OLED Water Lily is the result of experiments on Lumiblade OLED lighting panels and liquids. The designer formed this project through a series of experiments on OLED and liquids, uses the organic and lightweight properties of OLED to create a floating digital surface. The lilies, blending nature and technology, only power when connected with the surface of the water. Incandescent bulbs generate the light by passing electricity via a wire, or fluoroscent lamps which pass current through a gas. OLED generate light by passing electricity through one ore more very thin layers of organic semiconductor material. At the Light and Building 2014 Philips showcase brand new OLED lighting panels. The new GL350 Panel is the first of its kind to be strong in the field of functional light. This panel measues 124.5 by 124.5 millimeters (~ 4.9 by 4.9 inches) and with a luminous flux of 120 lumens, the new OLED delivers enough light to be used for a functional lamp. See what happens when Lumiblade OLEDs are combined with liquid — the result is quite extraordinary!
