Panasonic showed off a unique new kind of OLED TV today on stage 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.
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.

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
