LG Launches World’s Largest OLED TV Panel

Since the appearance of Sony’s cool but relatively smaller XEL-1 back in 2007, we have been waiting for a large-sized OLED TVs. A good number of larger OLEDs and a lot of progress have been seen since then. A recent report comes out of the LG camp suggesting that the company is ready to display the world’s largest OLED TV at CES 2012, which is scheduled for January 12.

LG claims that the forthcoming OLED TV panel measures 55-inch with a contrast ratio of 100,000:1. The Oxide TFT technology has been used to develop this panel, LG states. The company has already displayed its super-thin 31-inch model in 2010.

Furthermore, the panel is just 5 mm thin and carries a color gamut which is ‘wider’ than the previously produced LCD panels.

The CEO and Executive Vice President of LG, Sang Beom said, “Although OLED technology is seen as the future of TV display, the technology has been limited to smaller display sizes and by high costs, until now. LG Display’s 55-inch OLED TV panel has overcome these barriers.”

Despite all its glory, there is bad news that the current product is just an attempt to move forward in publicizing the concept of large-sized OLED TVs, says LG. This means that it is just a prototype at the moment that carries no price tag and release date. One should expect wait for an unknown period of time before being able to buy the world’s largest OLED TV.

More details will be released in the forthcoming CES event, where other products will also be introduced, including Wi-Fi-supporting CINEMA 3D Smart TVs that the company has announced earlier this month.
