Seiko Epson says it will pump out bigscreen OLED TVs by 2015 due to ink-jet innovation
Seiko Epson has claimed to have made an advance in ink-jet technology that enabled the company to mass produce OLED TVs by the middle of next decade. That's a few years off, but Seiko plans to show off a 14-inch OLED display at the Society for Information Display conference in San Antonio next week. The display is said to reproduce the resolution density found in a typical 37-inch plasma or LCD display.
So how does this supposed technical advance work? Seiko says it has found a way to use ink-jets to evenly deposit the organic material that provides the lighting for OLEDs. Previously that wasn't possible, leading to ink-jet-produced OLEDs that produced uneven pictures. The company says that it plans to begin producing ink-jet OLEDs in sample scale beginning in 2012 followed by large-screen mass production around 2015.
