Mitsubishi to ship first module OLED display

Mitsubishi Electric said over the weekend that it will release the first modular OLED display later this month. The display, dubbed Diamond Vision OLED, will be sold in sizes of 100 inches at a minimum and meant for indoor use. Maximum brightness of 1,200cd/m2 is about twice that of Mitsubishi's LED-lit products, while the viewing angle is about 80 degrees from any given side. The display is made up of individual modules rather than a continuous panel: each weighs 17.6lbs and measures 15.1 inches square.

Mitsubishi Electric developed the OLEDs together with Tohoku Pioneer Corporation using a process called electro-luminescence. Each pixel uses an anode and cathode sandwiching a thin, organic membrane. Unlike an LCD, OLEDs don't need backlights and have a higher contrast ratio. Sales for the TV are set to begin on September 21, and the set will showed off at the CEATEC Japan show on October 5-9. Pricing has not been announced.
