Samsung Mobile Display (SMD) will be demonstrating three next generation OLED displays tomorrow at the CES 2010.
OLED was the talk of CES for the last years. This year 3D is way more important and OLED at least in the TV section is getting a bit dusted as it is not moving forward to become affordable fast enough.
In the mobile sector OLED is becoming more and more common. New smartphones and small devices feature OLED displays.
The following new OLED displays will be exhibited by Samsung:
1. A 14-inch qFHD 3D OLED prototype: ‘Crosstalk Free’
This 14-inch 3D panel is the world's first OLED display that features qFHD resolution (960x 540), a contrast ratio of 100,000:1, a color gamut of over 100% NTSC and a ultra-slim design with a panel thickness of only 1.6mm – providing outstanding brightness and exceptional image quality.
Image switching on this prototype panel is fast enough to eliminate optical crosstalk between the two 3D images.
2. A 14-inch qFHD Transparent OLED for Note PCs: World's first and largest
SMD is showing the world’s first and largest transparent OLED panel prototype, designed for use in applications from smartphones, MP3s and Note PCs to ‘head-up’ displays for vehicles, and advertisement displays that are interactive and eye-catching.
When the screen is off, the prototype has up to a 40% transparency. The average amount of transparency in the industry is below 25 percent.
As SMD’s transparent OLED for Note PCs represents the highest resolution on the largest screen with high transparency, it should soon be used to display actual transparent products.
3. A 2-inch Electronic-ID OLED operated by RF Power :
An electronic ID card prototype featuring a new chip that stores personal information like an identification number.
RF-powered AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode) technology is used for the enhanced electronic ID cards, taking security to a higher level. It can also securely store biographical information and digital imagery in the card. The screen requires no additional battery power, and instead can draw power from a nearby RF-powered source that is AMOLED adapted.
