Lightbulb Sony launches OLED TV sales

Sony launches OLED TV sales

Sony Corp. said Monday it will begin selling the world’s first ultra-thin flat-screen television based on organic light-emitting diode technology in December, as the race to develop next-generation televisions heats up. The technology, known as OLED, uses organic chemicals that can emit light. That means the new TV set doesn’t require a backlight like conventional liquid-crystal display televisions. Televisions using this technology can be thinner and show crisper images with less energy. LCD technology will still dominate the television industry for awhile, with LCD TV shipments more than doubling to about 110 million sets in 2009 from 46 million in 2006, according to market research firm DisplaySearch.

Sony said an 11-inch model with a 3-millimeter screen will go on sale first in Japan on Dec. 1 for ¥200,000 (about $1,700). It didn’t provide details on when it would be available overseas but similar launches are expected in the near future. Sony will market the initial model as a personal television for bedrooms, home offices and corporate offices though it aims to eventually develop larger-screen OLED televisions. Leading next-generation television development is doubly important for Sony, which is nearing the end of a three-year turnaround plan under Chief Executive Howard Stringer. That’s because it was late to market in introducing LCD televisions.

Looks promising.... Will be a loooong time before they can bring the price down to LCD levels though... Also curious about screen life ?

Technology gone mad!

I would think eventually they would get to a point where a tv picture can only look so good. I mean... I have an LG Plasma and I really can't imagine anything else producing a much better picture. Just like those Pioneer "Elite" series plasmas I see at Best Buy(I think it's Pioneer anyway)... I'm sure they're better somehow or another, but I really can't tell a difference between them and my tv. I suppose it could be just me and my inability to see the difference... but if that's the case then woohoo! Cause I can't see what I'm missing anyway!

The issue with OLED's has been the blue oled's have a much shorter lifespan then the other colours, and much shorter then normal LED's.
I'm sure Sony has at least partially addressed this, but I don't think they will last as long as a standard lcd yet.

Interesting info...


As long as the OLED TV goes dead within the warranty period, then that's fine...

They will probably engineer it so it breaks 1 day after warranty expires

That's ok, then I will just figure a way to burn the TV one day before the warranty expires...

This December, Sony will deliver the first of its OLED TVs: the XEL-1, which has an 11-inch screen that is only 3-mm thick with a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 and a native resolution of 960x540. Even though, the XEL-1 accepts 1080p video through HDMI that obviously will be scaled down.

The lifespan of this first OLED TV is around 30,000 hours (half of current LCD and Plasma HDTVs), which is enough time to watch eight hours of television per day for 10 years.

My wife works for Sony, she was telling me about it two years ago. I can't believe it took this long for it to come out. I saw a preproduction unit last year and was awesome..

BTW is was just 13" screen.
