Samsung Pulls A 82-Inch 120Hz LCD TV With LED Backlight Out Of Its Hat At SID 2008; Will Produce 31-Inch OLED TV's?

UPDATE: Little bit of a mistake, every time you see OLED below, replace it with LCD. It's an 82-inch LCD TV. Oops!
Samsung and LG are only interested in one thing at the ongoing Society For Information Display (SID) conference and that's showcasing display technology way beyond that of anyone else. Yesterday Samsung showcased a giant 82-inch OLED display with 120 Hz technology, turning an already fantastic OLED picture even better by displaying 120 frames per second instead of 60. The Samsung OLED also uses an LED backlight. The company says they've reached economies of scale in smaller OLED screen sizes and will release 15 different panel sizes ranging from 2 inches to 31 inches, which means we'll likely be seeing a 31-inch OLED TV on the market pretty soon.

LG Display isn't showcasing any crazy prototype panels, but they are showing off a new OLED panel production technology, LCD roll-printing, that uses less chemicals than the current photolithography process translating into lower costs and less environmental impact.

Er, the 102" screen is *not* an OLED, it's an LCD with a LED backlight.

OLEDs don't need a backlight, actually.
