Pixelligent Technologies entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) with an aim to optimize the formulation for ORNL’s roll-to-roll process for OLED lighting devices. Pixelligent says that this agreement will allow them to further optimize materials and formulations to demonstrate improved performance and cost for OLED lighting roll-to-roll processes. This project also gives Pixelligent access to the state-of-the-art facilities and world class expertise at ORNL.

A few weeks ago Japan’s Nikkei Asian Review posted an article saying that Samsung decided to scrap their plans for an OLED TV fab . According to Nikkei’s report, Samsung decided to setup a new facility to produce small and medium sized OLED panels . Today Korea’s Yonhap news posted an article saying that Samsung indeed decided to setup a new AMOLED fab. Samsung may increase its CapEX spending by 8.6% in 2014 (to $24.4 billion). The investment in the new OLED fab in Asan will be between $3 billion to $5 billion. Read more about Samsung to invest 3-5 billion USD on a new AMOLED fab

In 2012 we posted about light-emitting electrochemical cells (LEC), a cheaper (but less efficient) flexible alternative to OLED lighting . Back then, three Universities (in Sweden and Denmark), involved with Polymer LEC (P-LEC) research, launched a company called LunaLEC to develop and commercialize the technology. Now LunaLEC unveiled a new technology that can be used to fabricate 3D LECs in air using spray-spintering. This fault-tolerant fabrication technique can produce multi colored large-area emission patterns via sequential deposition of different inks based on identical solvents. The technique can also be used to deposit LECs on complex-shaped surfaces – for example the fork you see above. This is done in-air without the use of cleanrooms.

We have had a survey running for a few weeks now. The question was whether you would spend €6.000 for a OLED TV? So far a total of 187 users have participated and voted as follows: NO (83%, 156 Votes) Yes (17%, 31 Votes) In the meantime the question should probably read if you would spend €4.500 for a 55” curved OLED TV. Because the prices have gone further down. You can purchase it with our partners for the unbeatable price of €4.500. All enquires please to office @ controlrooms.at . As the question continues to occupy us, we wanted to do a comparison between a curved LG 55EA9709 and a Direct LED LCD Panel with a narrow frame. This means that this LCD Panel is a lot better than your average LCD Panel with only an Edge LED Backlight.
Sony’s a7S is a full-frame (12.2 MP, 35mm) mirrorless digital camera with 4K video support, high-precision Fast Intelligent AF system, an ISO range of up to 409,600 and an XGA OLED EVF. The a7S will be released on July 8th for $2,498 . You can now pre-order it on Amazon.com .

The Kairos Smartwatch is a mechanical watch that has a transparent OLED on top. The OLED is a 1.4″ (diameter) full color round PMOLED (40% transparent). The watch has an ARM Cortex M4 CPU (a model with an Intel CPU is coming too), a 180mAh battery (should be enough for 5-7 days as display won’t be used to display the time), a 3-axis accelerometer and Bluetooth 4. It runs on Kairos’ own smartOS (compatible with both Android an iOS) – but Android Wear OS will be available too. Interestingly, Kairos says that they will also offer the same watches but with a different display: an icon-type transparent display that will only show static icons, numbers and engilish text. This one will offer 60% transparency. Kairos will offer several models, from $499 to $2,149. You can already pre-order the watches with some nice discounts.

Yesterday we posted that Acuity Brands launched new editions of their OLED luminaries with the latest LG Chem panels . Today the company sent us this nice video showing their luminaries while also telling us how great OLEDs are: I liked the part where he says that up until now, we always had to hide the light source because it is uncomfortable to look at. But with OLEDs – you want to look at the light, it’s a pleasure and a joy to look at. Like they say in the movie: OLED is perfect. Read more about Acuity Brands: OLED is the perfect light source
