During the annual “D:All Things Digital” media and technology conference that was hosted by Wall Street Journal in Carlsbad California, Sony unveiled it’s latest product, the thinner than credit card (actually thinner than a credit card at 0.3mm) OLED Display TV, that is the thinnest and most viable OLED product on the market to date. Sony is already selling ultra-thin LCD TV’s for almost $2,000 bucks for 11″ models but this one tops the charts by being the thinnest and most vivid display series of all the competing TV manufacturers in the world. Samsung, which is considered to be one of the best producers of LCD TV’s along side Sony has a huge chunk of the Digital HD TV market, coming up with the 41″ OLED that was showcased at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show. Sony on the other hand has been selling small OLED displays for quite sometime is soon to follow.
Sony has excelled in the OLED TV area for OLED’s are low power, thus friendlier on the environment. They also claim to attain an unprecedented 1 million to 1 contrast ratio which many people find hard to believe for that would be sharper than what the eye can interpret. They are currently very expensive but as time passes by and more and more people begin to make them in huge numbers the prices would surely start falling. The company has announced that they would be rolling them out by the end of this year in the US with other countries still in the works. OLED’s use organic materials that do not need backlighting by producing their own light when excited by electrical current. The technology also offers faster refresh rates than current display technologies in use today. Tomorrow would be brighter indeed with innovations such as these and bigger better OLED TV’s are in the works form Sony and the many other consumer electronics manufacturers out in the market.
