LG’s incredible new HDTV prototype is as thin as paper

LG HDTV OLED Display

Just when you thought that TVs couldn't possibly get any thinner, LG has gone and upped the ante with an incredible 55-inch OLED wallpaper display that measures in at less than a millimeter and weighs just barely over four pounds.

While the display itself is more of a proof of concept device than something you can pick up at your local Best Buy today, the display may very well be a glimpse into how many of us will watch TV in the (distant) future.

Panasonic Debuts World’s First 4K Printed OLED TV, Just Half An Inch Thick

IMG_4212

Panasonic showed off a unique new kind of OLED TV today onstage at the CES 2013 keynote, which is manufactured using 3D printing technology. The 56-inch television is incredibly thin, at just half-an-inch thick, and weighs a fraction of previous generation LED sets. The use of 3D printing tech should also eventually help super high resolution OLED TVs come down to manageable pricing levels, as the manufacturing process improves over time.

The TV was only displayed onstage briefly, and Panasonic CEO Kauhiro Tsuga didn’t share any details about when it would be available to consumers or at what price, but we’ll be seeking out the set on the show floor later. Judging by initial impressions from where we’re sitting, it’s a very impressive device with a screen that looks amazing even from a distance of about 30 to 40 feet back.

Sony and Panasonic to announce an OLED partnership next week

OLED TVs Sony Panasonic

Rival Japanese television makers Sony and Panasonic will reportedly announce a new partnership next week to mass produce OLED televisions, according to Reuters. The two companies hope to develop technology that will enable them to make OLED TVs more affordable — current models cost thousands of dollars. OLED panel technology, which Sony pioneered in 2007, provides users with improved picture quality as well as deeper color saturation with high contrast, and it allows vendors to make TVs as slim as 4 millimeters that consume less power than traditional LCD sets. In recent years, the Japanese television industry has lost ground due to increased competition from South Korean rivals LG and Samsung, however by combining their research and development resources, Sony and Panasonic are hoping to regain lost market share.

Samsung to sell ultra-thin $9,000 OLED HDTV in second half of 2012

Samsung OLED HDTV

Samsung on Thursday announced plans to launch its new flat-panel OLED TVs during the second half of this year, according to The Washington Post. OLED technology is still new and therefor very expensive. The company’s high-end 55-inch OLED TV will be priced double Samsung’s current offerings, costing more than $9,000 when it launches in South Korea. The technology provides users with improved picture quality and deeper color saturation with high contrast. OLED technology also allows vendors to develop thinner and lighter TVs, and Samsung believes it will take two to three year before it becomes an industry standard. The South Korean electronics giant previously announced that it would showcase its 55-inch OLED HDTV at Berlin’s IFA trade show in late August after first showing it off at CES in January.

Samsung to showcase flagship OLED HDTV at IFA in August

Samsung confirmed on Friday that its 55-inch OLED HDTV will be shown at Berlin’s IFA trade show in late August, according to a report from SlashGear. At the event, the manufacturer will announce the TV’s official launch details alongside a new, premium range of HDTVs. Samsung describes the new televisions as even “more premium” than its OLED models, although that may be in terms of functionality rather than design or display technology. Samsung unveiled its OLED TV at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, however details remain scarce. Both television sets will reportedly support the newest iteration of Samsung AllShare, which will add a 5GB cloud account to its local DLNA-based service, along with a remote login system, in the latter part of 2012. Using a single account login, the feature will allow users to remotely access any of their Samsung devices located anywhere in the world.

Samsung’s got a 55-inch Super OLED TV of its own, coming in the second half of 2012

We're seated here at Samsung's 2012 CES press event, and the company just revealed that it'll be matching rival LG's 55-inch OLED TV... when a 55-inch OLED TV of its own. Not surprisingly, the outfit's trumpeting its terrific color reproduction, the virtual absence of motion blur and face recognition. Sadly, there's not even a model number to mark down, and a price estimate should be even harder to find. It is, however, expected to ship in the latter half of 2012. There's no color filter needed here, either, as the self-emitting RGB sub-pixels take care of themselves; since light output on the Super OLED is controlled on a pixel-to-pixel basis, you can rest assured that your blacks will be deep and your whites bright. Other specs include a dual-core processor and 3D support. We'll be doing everything we can to get a peek at one, so keep it locked for more as we heard it.

Sony quits OLED TV in the consumer market, we quietly shelve hopes for the XEL-2

Hope you're in the mood to pour one out, because the Daily Yomiuri Online has just confirmed that Sony is giving up the OLED TV in its consumer business. According to the report, it has discontinued production of OLED TV sets for the mainstream market, and while it'll continue selling 'em to its corporate clients, it'll concentrate the home-use TV portion on LCD models. For historians in attendance, they'll no doubt (fondly) recall the XEL-1 -- a devilishly thin personal OLED TV that never stood a chance at filling anything other than a luxury niche. The same sect will also remember that it discontinued OLED TV sales domestically back in 2010, but exports to America and Europe continued up until now. The real question? Whether or not those rollable OLEDs are still getting researched in a Sony lab; the futurist in us can only pray so.

LG announces nearly borderless 55-inch OLED HDTV

New record-breaking televisions are compulsory at the Consumer Electronics Show each year, and LG will be among the companies this year staking claim to HDTV sets that go where no TV has gone before. The South Korea-based electronics giant announced over the weekend that it will be showing off the world’s largest OLED TV at CES 2012 next week. With a panel that measures 55 inches diagonally, LG’s new HDTV features an infinite contrast ratio, 4-Color Pixels, Color Refiner and a nearly borderless design with a bezel that is only 4-millimeters wide. ”Working closely with LG Display, we have a product which not only delivers on all the advantages of OLED over LCD but at a significantly lower cost than what could be achieved using existing OLED manufacturing technologies,” LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company CEO Havis Kwon said in a statement. “OLED is clearly the future of home TV entertainment and LG is very focused on making this exciting technology as easy as possible for consumers to embrace.” LG’s full press release follows below, along with another image of LG’s new HDTV.

WORLD’S LARGEST OLED TV FROM LG OFFERS MORE REALISTIC COLORS, BRIGHTER PICTURE, FASTER SPEED

LG Unveils Much Anticipated 55-inch OLED TV for First Time at CES 2012

SEOUL, Jan. 2, 2012 – LG Electronics (LG) will present the future of TV technology at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas with the unveiling of the world’s largest OLED TV with a display size of 55 inches. By incorporating the company’s 4-Color Pixels and Color Refiner features with LG Display’s advanced OLED (organic light-emitting diode) panels, LG OLED TV generates the most natural colors of any TV set at a much lower price point than could have been achieved using the standard manufacturing process.

“Working closely with LG Display, we have a product which not only delivers on all the advantages of OLED over LCD but at a significantly lower cost than what could be achieved using existing OLED manufacturing technologies,” said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. “OLED is clearly the future of home TV entertainment and LG is very focused on making this exciting technology as easy as possible for consumers to embrace.”

What sets LG’s TV picture apart from other OLED TVs is 4-Color Pixels and Color Refiner which work together to generate natural and accurate colors that are sharp and consistent. The 4-Color Pixels feature allows for more accurate color depiction by using a set of four colors (red, green blue and white) in comparison to the RGB setup used by other OLED TV manufacturers. Color Refiner ensures consistency in colors from a wider viewing angle via an LG algorithm which improves and refines hues and tones. This is in contrast to other OLED TVs which often exhibit drastic changes in hues from different viewing angles and abnormal color gamut.

Boasting an infinite contrast ratio, LG’s OLED TV exhibits vivid colors and the smallest details regardless of the overall luminance of the on-screen image. In turn, colors and details throughout an entire image are preserved with utmost clarity and sharpness, even when displaying scenes with dark lighting. Such color capabilities are technically impossible with LED and LCD display panels. And at 1,000 times faster than LED/LCD displays, LG’s OLED TV shows crystal clear motion without any blurring or bleeding.

And LG’s OLED TV is as aesthetically pleasing as it is technologically sophisticated. LG’s Slim and Narrow Bezel design gives the TV a sleek, minimal look and at only 4 mm thin and a mere 7.5 kg, LG’s OLED TV practically blends into the wall.
