OSRAM already stated in the past that OLED is the next technological development for car lighting , and the company sees OLEDs adopted in series production of new vehicles by 2016. At the L+B exhibition, Osram unveiled a new OLED Module for the automotive market, and the company’s OLED chief said that demand for organic solutions from the automotive sector will drive down prices and increase product innovation. The company are also showing their new panels at the event. Those panels offer 65 lm/W, 15,000 hours lifetime and output about 600 lux. To showcase those new panels, the company unveiled a new pendant luminaire designed by Werner Aisslinger. The luminaire uses 16 OLED panels.

LG Chem OLED Light Panels at Light and Building 2014 – Amazing new flexible OLED lighting panels from LG Chem
You Create, We light LG Chem OLED light was the slogan of LG Chem Light and Building 2014 booth. Erich Strasser was at the Light and Building event in Frankfurt to learn more about the goals and products from LG Chem. Not only at display in special television LG could be the number one, it looks like also in lighting the korean company made step by step to reach the goal. LG Chem showase many application with OLED lighting panels. One of the highlights was the “world largest” OLED lighting panel at 320×320 mm. This Model N6SD30 has a thickness of 1 mm, 3000 CCT(K), 60 lm/Watt, Flux (LM) 850, and a uniformity of >85 percent. The lifetime is about 40.000 hours. Why their lighting panels has with 80lm/Wat the best performance?
LG Electronics’ OLED desk lamp uses two LG Chem ‘s flexible OLED lighting panels and can be controlled (via Bluetooth) using a smartphone application. The application can be used to choose one of several light modes (for movies, readying, etc.) or dimming and even turn on or off at a predefined time. LG Chem’s flexible OLEDs are 210×50 mm in size (0.33 mm thick), and they offer a color temperature of 4,000K, efficacy of 55 lm/W and a brightness of 73 lumens. The CRI is 90 and the lifetime is 40,000 (LT70). LG Electronics unveiled the desk lamp in April 2014, but they did not reveal actual launch plans or pricing details.

ETNews: LG wants to improve their flexible OLED displays, while Samsung looks to enable new designs and forms
Korean news site ETNews posted an article discussing Samsung’s and LG Display’s flexible OLED display plan for 2014. According to the report, LG Display will focus on reducing the size of the OLEDs while increasing the resolution and other display aspects, while Samsung wants to develop new display designs and forms. LG Display is currently producing a 6″ 720p flexible OLED panel – which means a PPI of 245. Samsung’s display ( 5.7″, Full-HD ) has a much higher PPI of 386. In 2014, LGD hopes to start producing a 5.5″ Full-HD panel. The company also reportedly has issues with heat handling and they want to address this issue.

Samsung SDI announced that it is buying Samsung’s Cheil Industries for $3.3 billion in stock. SDI hopes that the merger will expand the reach of its lithium-ion battery business through the chemical and materials supply chain of Cheil. Cheil Industries is involved with OLED materials, and in August 2013, Cheil Industries (together with Samsung Electronics) acquired Novaled for €260 million . According to Analysts, this merger will also create synergies in the OLED market for automobiles. Now SDI may use Cheil’s OLED business to target materials for OLED lighting and displays in automobiles. Read more about Samsung SDI buys Samsung's Cheil Industries for $3.3 Billion

DisplayMate: the GS5 display is the best mobile display ever, outperforming all previous OLED and LCD panels
Last month Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5 with its 5.1″ FHD (432 PPI) Super AMOLED display. The phone is set to launch globally on April 11th, but my friend Raymond Soneira from DisplayMate received a GS5 from Samsung to test the display. And his conclusions? The GS5′s display is a major improvement over the GS4 display. In fact, the GS5′s AMOLED is the best mobile display ever tested at DisplayMate , outperforming all other OLED and LCD displays. But just how is the display better than the 5″ Full-HD one on the GS4 and every other mobile display on the market? DisplayMate says that the new display is features the highest brightness, the lowest reflectance, the highest color accuracy, the highest contrast rating in ambient light and the smallest brightness variation with viewing angle. That’s quite impressive! Read more about DisplayMate: the GS5 display is the best mobile display ever, outperforming all previous OLED and LCD panels
Galaxy S5 AMOLED Display tested in the lab – Galaxy S5 is the Best performing Smartphone display that Displaymate ever tested
If you think Samsung Display use the same AMOLED Display with Diamond pixel matrix like the S4 just a bit bigger. NO YOU ARE WRONG! The Galaxys S5 OLED from Samsung Display was tested on a extensive lab tests and measurments. And the conclusion is that this OLED is the best smartphone display the lab ever tested. Why? The Display has improved the brigthness, lowest reflectance, Highest color Accuraacy, Infinite contrast ratio, smallest brigthness variation with Viewieng Angle, Highest Contrast rating in Ambient light! The S5 has a Full HD resolution 1920×1080 Pixel resolution like the Galaxy S4. Our industry insider thinks that later this year we will see a Galaxy S5 Premium/Prime with 2.5K 2560×1440 pixels. But resolution is one thing, there are many other things that are very important for a perfect display! So Samsung Display decide to improve not the resolution but the korean company improved many other important things. Improved Brightness The result of the brightness are really amazing, the S5 are more than 22 percent brighter than the Galaxy S4 OLED and 13 percent more than the Galaxy Note 3. The display provide 400 cd/m² which is higher than most LCDs.
The headset includes a Full-HD OLED display, HDMI input and 11 sensors (including 2 cameras and 3 gyros). It supports the Unreal, Unity, Havok and CryEngine engines, and can be used with a PC, A PS3/PS4 and Xbox One & 360. TPG did not reveal when they expect to release the headset, and at what price.

New OLED gadget: True Player Gear VR HMD
Researchers from Kyushu University (led by Chihaya Adachi) developed a highly efficient blue OLED TADF (Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence) emitter that achieves almost 20% external quantum efficiency – similar to the best blue phosphorescent emitters. TADF OLEDs are free from the heavy metals used in phosphorescent emitters and so they could be cheaper and better for the environment. The main problem with blue phosphorescent OLEDs is the short lifetime which still makes it impossible to use them in commercial applications. The new TADF blue OLEDs has about the same lifetime as the blue PHOLEDs, but researchers are hopeful that it will be easier to improve the lifetime of the TADF emitters.
