2018 will mark the year mid-range OLED TV and OLED monitors will hit the market. Japanese JOLED announced to have started the shipment of its RGB printed OLED panel. The display is a 21.6-inch 4K high-resolution OLED panel produced using the printing method.
Founded in 2015, JOLED mission was to develop printing technology to mass produce OLED displays. President Nobuhiro Higashiiriki says, “We are extremely happy to finally be able to ship our company’s RGB printing OLED panels in our third year of operation. From here, we plan to accelerate product development and supply OLED panels that match customer needs. We also hope to inspire further innovation in the world’s OLED panel market through our company’s technologies and products.”
OLED materials are applied to the substrate through a printing technique to form an electroluminescent (EL) layer. Due to the simplicity of the production process, it is expected that this technology will be easily adaptable to OLED production in various screen sizes. JOLED plans to popularize its printing OLED panels in the medium-sized OLED market in which the current mainstream chemical vapor deposition method is considered difficult to use.
JOLED was founded by Japan Display, Sony and Panasonic with financial support from the public-private INCJ investment fund, according to OLED-info. Japan Display has decided not to invest further into JOLED. The company seeks now to raise $900 million to further expand its production capabilities.
OLED TVs are leading the wishlists of many consumers this Holiday season. Available OLED TV sizes start at 55-inch and prices at $1,596.99
