Panasonic unveils OLED 4K TV

Panasonic is showcasing a 56-inch organic light-emitting diode (OLED) 4K TV, at this week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The model is the largest on show at CES and the largest in the world to be produced through the "RGB all-printing method", according to Panasonic. The RGB all-printing method allows for the separate application of the red, green and blue OLED materials by means of printing which improves the light output and ensures there are no reflections. The method also reduces costs of production, increases yield rates and make the displays more reliable, according to Panasonic.

Panasonic is also collaborating with Sony to develop mass-production printing-based technology for OLED panels. The thin-film-transistor (TFT) substrates used in the prototype panels on show at CES were supplied by Sony as part of the collaboration.

"OLED is considered as a promising option for next-generation displays that will create new applications in a broad range of fields, for use not just in the home, but in medical, broadcasting and aircraft applications. With the advancement of display technologies, which may enable sheet-type or flexible displays, OLED panels will find more applications in a wider range of industries." said Panasonic in a press statement.
