In Japan, Mitsubishi announced this week that it will launch Diamond Vision OLED, what the company calls the world’s first, large-scale (100 inches-plus) display system to use organic light emitting diodes (OLED) as its light source. Company officials said worldwide sales would begin later this month.
Mitsubishi said the Diamond Vision OLED was designed for indoor use and employs the company's new video controlling technology for creating seamless, vivid images in applications such as digital signage. The screen offers wide horizontal and vertical viewing angles of about ±80 degrees, according to the company, and features a maximum brightness of 1,200cd/m² and twice the high contrast as its LED product. Those characteristics make it suitable for installation in relatively brightly lit areas, such as commercial facilities, stations, and airports.
Built by connecting a number of standard modules each measuring 15 inches square and weighing 17.6 pounds, with a 3-millimeter pixel pitch, the Diamond Vision OLED is scalable and can be designed to form a certain size or shape, even against rounded surfaces, company officials said. The screen’s 3.9-inch depth allows it to be installed in limited spaces such as narrow paths and station concourses.
The product’s OLED device, jointly developed between Mitsubishi Electric and Tohoku Pioneer Corp., creates light by a process of electro-luminescence (EL). Each pixel consists of an anode and cathode separated by a thin, organic membrane.
If you'll be in the Far East, Mitsubishi will show the Diamond Vision OLED at CEATEC Japan 2010, from October 5-9 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan.
