OLED-Tv is the next big thing in displays and television devices. OLED means (organic light emitting diode) imagine a television screen as thin as a piece of paper that weighs no more than a few ounces.
Plasma, and LCD televisions will soon be a thing of the past. Or, so flexible it could be worn around your wrist and is virtually indestructible.

Key advantage OLED Televisions
- Superior Picture Quality
With more vivid, lifelike colors, better representation of fast action video, wider viewing angels, and much higher contrast ratios, Organic light emitting diode Tvs dramatically enhance the viewing experience. Ech frame is sharp, ech detail pops! Thats because this display technology naturally refresh up to a thousand times faster than an LCD. Their color gamut can exceed NTSC standards. And this displays feature almost 180 degree viewing angle and in inherent contrast ratio of > 1.000.000:1.
- High Efficiency
This display technology use power more efficiently than existing LCD and PDP HDTVs. With Tvs getting larger, they are becoming an increasingly energy intensive consumer of electricity. Purchasing power efficient Tvs will save money and critical energy resources.
- Very thin
Much thinner and lighter weight than existing PDPs and LCDs, this displays can be the thickness of a pane of glass, and with gains made in flexible electronics could get even thinner. They can also be lightweight enough so that even large OLED screens will be easily moved or hung on the wall.
- Cost effective
While the first Organic displays hitting the market today are expensive, those prices will fall dramatically as the technology matures and volume ramps. Ultimately, OLED televisions will prove more cost effective because they require fewer materials and fewer processing steps than LCDs and PDPs.

Samsung at SID-2010 OLEDs will be the next big thing in displays!
At the SID-2010 Sang-Soo Kim, executive vice president and chief technology officer of Samsung Mobile Display says that OLED is the future of displays. Both in mobile phones and in the TV market, Samsung expects to sell 1 Billion OLED Displays in 5 Years. Samsung invest $2.2 billion to the 5.5 Gen OLED factory which starts production in 2012.
Sang-Soo Kim also said that TV challenges will be met, and AMOLED will become the mainstream display technology for TVs by 2015. It’s an ambitious goal.
The primary benefit of OLED displays over traditional LCDs is that OLEDs do not require a backlight to function, and consume less power during operation. OLED displays are expected to be more efficiently manufactured than LCDs and plasma displays.
The AMOLED technology have full layers of cathode, organic molecules and anode, the anode layer overlays a thin film transistor (TFT) array that forms a matrix. The TFT array itself is the circuitry that determines which pixels get turned on to form an picture.
The fledgling technology of making ultra-thin displays using organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) is starting to bear fruit finally with Sony, Samsung SDI and other makers introducing new applications.
Sony says that it is going to sell 11-inch OLED TVs for the first time in the world this year. Korean firms such as Samsung Electronics, Samsung SDI, LG Electronics, LG.Philips LCD and Neoview Kolon are also investing in the technology, which should replace the current LCD and plasma screens panels in the long term, becoming the norm for digital displays.
Samsung Electronics Digital Media President Park Jong-woo said that organic displays can be a breakthrough in its TV business, as the competition for creating bigger screens now does not carry much meaning to consumers.
Super Ultimate OLED-Tv at CES-2012
At the CES 2012, Samsung Electronics unveiled its 55-inch Super OLED TV, a masterpiece that will be acclaimed by home entertainment and design enthusiasts alike. The OLED TV will be produced from a single pane of glass and uses Samsung’s Super OLED technology to deliver the ultimate in picture quality and thinness. Super OLED technology eliminates the need for a color filter as the OLED pixel unit comprises self-emitting RGB sub-pixels laid directly on the display panel, each emitting its own light. The technology is also able to differentiate varying degrees of blacks and shadows, so that users can enjoy unparalleled detail even in the darkest of scenes for the ultimate TV experience.

Samsung SDI exhibited a 40-inch OLED panel at the FPD International 2008 that features a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, a color gamut of 107% NTSC and a luminance of 200cd/m2 (peak luminance of 600cd/m2)
Samsung-SDI see that AMOLED comes in more medium and large-size applications – such as for monitor, notebook and TV – will adopt AMOLED panels in 2009, and in 2010, flexible display applications!
Update December 2007 Toshiba Corp said on Tuesday it had shelved plans to sell ultra-thin TVs with organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays in 2009/10 because of the cost of mass production.

SAMSUNG 40 Zoll PROTOTYPE OLED-TV
Samsung uses the International Meeting on Information Display 2005 conference, currently held in Seoul, to show its most recent devices. Among the products are several products that have been part of press releases but have not been shown to the public. This includes a monstrous 82-inch LCD TV panel that offers 180-degree viewing angles and a color saturation of 92 percent, according Samsung.
Full-color AMOLED displays based on a white emitter with an RGB color-filter array have been reported as an alternative technology to those displays with patterned RGB emitters due to their relatively higher cost. RGB displays based on a white emitter have a disadvantage in power consumption because part of the energy of the white light is absorbed by the color filters. Recently, a white-emitter-based AMOLED display with an RGBW pixel format has been demonstrated.
Also on display is a thin 40-inch active matrix OLED with a resolution of 1280 x 800, a brightness of 600, a contrast ratio of 5000:1 and color saturation of 80 percent. And there is news for mobile phones: Samsung demos an “always-on” section display that requires virtually no power on standby mode, according to the company: A dual-window structure divides the “indicator” display and main window. The indicator window, which only consumes 0.45mw of power, shows the time, day of week, remaining battery life, antenna status and mailbox status.

The 55EM9600 has a FULL HD 1080P resolution and features a Triple XD engine to drive the picture with Dynamic Color Enhancer, a Contrast Optimizer and a Resolution Upscaler. The OLED-Tv can also show 3D and 2D content, and the device has a converting system to convert content from 2D to 3D. The refresh rate is less than 0.1 microseconds which enables rapid movements and motion with more realistic clarity. The panel depth is only 4 mm and the panel can be mounted on a wall with no space between the panel and wall.
