BASF opened a new R&D center for electronic materials at Sungkyunkwan University in Korea. The new center will focus on materials for next-generation display technologies – specifically OLED displays and flexible displays (OLEDs and e-paper displays). The new center will support local researchers – and will provide internships and training programs. BASF hopes to team up with local small and medium companies for joint development and marketing.

LG Electronics launched a new limited edition premium curved OLED TV with design support from Swarovski. The OLED TV offers “shimmering crystals complemented by the brilliant, precise colors of the OLED’s self-lighting pixels”: Strangely, this TV is based on LG’s 2013 model, the 55EA9800 and not their newer 55EC9300 launched in 2014. Anyway, it includes about 460 luminescent Aurora Borealis crystals of three different sizes that were applied by hand using specially made stencils. LG did not say when they’ll release the TV, but it’ll probably be very expensive. The regular 55EA9800 is not in production anymore, but retailers still offer it – usually for less than $3,000 .

A few days ago LG Electronics launched the beautiful G Watch R smartwatch , with its 1.3″ (320×320) flexible plastic-based OLED panel . Toady LG Display announced that it started mass producing those OLED panels. While it was pretty clear that LGD is behind this flexible OLED, it’s good to hear a formal confirmation. LG Display further tells us that the panel is less than 0.6 mm thick and features a 100% color gamut (not sure which standard is that), 300 nit peak luminance and of course an “unlimited” contrast ratio.

Circular Plastic OLED Display from LG-Display – World’s First Circular POLED Display ready for mass production
LG Display is ready to mass produc the world first circular P-OLED Plastic OLED Display. This POLED will be used for their smartwacht G-Watch-R which are introduced at IFA-2014 in Berlin. This circular display make new kind of wearable products possible. The display has a 1.3 inch diameter with a 320×320 Pixel resolution, 100 percent color gamut, 300 nit peak luminance and unlimited contrast ratio for great user satisfaction. This innovative display is perfectly round and allows Lgs smartwatch to have a full watch face while promoting ease of use since the screen area is 57 percent larger than that of a square display with the same size. LG Display is ready to mass produce that kind of Display by developing a circular mask that enables organic materials to be deposited simultaneously. This new process improves deposition efficiency whly employing a highly precise laser cutting technology. This is antoher breakthrough for LG-Display with OLED and their next generation display technologies. Sang-Deog Yeo, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at LG Display says: “We will respond to the fast-growing wearable devices market by continuously developing innovative technologies to meet the needs and demands of various customers, thereby leading the market.”
Samsung’s Gear VR is a Virtual Reality Headset ( developed together with Oculus VR ) that uses a Galaxy Note 4 for the screen (5.7″ QHD Super AMOLED ), processor, sensors and audio. While it suffers from some limitations (lack of sensors for example), it’s a novel idea that will be a lot cheaper (hopefully) than a dedicated VR headset. Samsung says they will ship the Gear VR by the end of 2014.

OLED Color at 1/3 the Price suggest TCL 4K Quantum dot based Tv – QD Vision and TCL introduce QDOT 4K Television device at IFA-2014
The fight against OLED vs QDOT TVs (Quantum Dot Television devices) starts at IFA-2014 In co-operation with QD Vision the chinese company TCL introduce their first 55 inch 4K UHD Television device with QD Quantum Dots technology. TCL are using IQTM technology from QD Vision which delivers 100 percent NTSC color gamut performance that establishes a new standard of color performance with LCD technology. The secret behind this are QD Visions new semiconductor nanocrystal technology that enables Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) to achieve that kind of color performance. The combination of both companies are optimal because QD Vision has the innovation and TCL the experience and high volume manufacturing fabs. There are some reports that colorfulness is a very important factor in viewers estimation of picture quality, the mainstream LCD Television device reach typically 60-70 percent of NTSC color gamut standard. QD Vision says: Full-gamut color displays enabled by cost-effective quantum dot technology deliver vibrant colorfulness and 100% accuracy, and are poised for universal adoption in the coming years. OLED hast the same very good color gamut experience but for a more expensive price, but OLED has more advantages that only color gamut, contrast, response time, thickness, etc. etc. Yes OLED is not the cheapest technology yet TCL and QD Vision suggest the same color experience for 1/3 of the price of an OLED-Television device. It looks like Samsung plans also a QDOT-Television device soon
