OLED of Samsung•LG Display, Selected as the Display of the year

Samsung Display and LG Display announced on the 18th that their technology were recognized as OLED respectively in the Society for Information Display (SID), the world’s largest Display society.

 

According to the two companies, in SID awards, Samsung Display’s quad-edge flexible OLED is selected for ‘DIA, Display Industry Awards’ and LG Display’s 65inch UHD Wallpaper OLED TV panel is selected for ‘Display of the Year’

 

SID awards the prize to promising innovative display products, components, and applications that unveil the future of the global display industry among the products launched last year.

According to SID, Samsung Display’s quad-edge flexible OLED in Galaxy S7 Edge was the first in the industry to display the top, bottom, left, and right sides of the display in a curved shape, and won the Display Industry Awards for its outstanding technology.

 

This product uses a BM (black matrix) area minimization design technology to further reduce the bezel by 0.2mm, the upper and lower end portions (curvature radius 25R) were finely changed to realize a gentle curved shape. In addition, for the aesthetics and comfortable grip, the left and right edge portions of the panel were subjected to four different curvatures (curvature radius 35R → 9.4R → 5.4R → 3.8R).

For this award, Jeon, Seok-jin, marketing director of Samsung Display mentioned “Samsung Display has introduced differentiated products in the market through the state-of-the-art flexible OLED technology,” and said “We are pleased to continue to lead the display market with quad-edge flexible OLEDs.”

On the other hand, LG Display’s 65-inch UHD Wallpaper OLED panel, which was selected as the display of the year, was evaluated as an innovative product that not only realizes excellent image quality by adopting OLED technology but also presents new potential of display in terms of application range and design.

 

The OLED TV with this panel has already won numerous awards from the world’s leading media such as ENGAGET and SINET as well as CES 2017, On the 16th, it received 89 points (TV evaluation part) which is the highest point from the consumer report, American consumer media.

 

OLED panel applied to 65inch UHD Wallpaper OLED TV is less than 1mm thick and when it is made in TV set, thickness is less than 3.55mm and weighs only 7.4kg so that it can be brought into close contact with the wall like a frame. In addition, maximizing the design effect increases the immersion feeling when watching TV.

 

Yoon, Soo-Young, managing director of LG Display Research mentioned “LG Display has been innovating differentiated products, technologies and core competencies and providing new value to customers and consumers,” and said “As a company representing the global display industry, we will continue to do our best to lead the next generation of technology.”

During the SID 2016, not only Samsung Display and LG Display, but other companies including BOE, Japan Display (JDI), and Tianma also presented OLED. The extent of OLED by Korea, China, and Japan drew much attention.

In SID 2016 (22-27 May), these companies exhibited many new OLED panels for diverse devices such as smartphone, VR, and TV.

Samsung Display revealed rollable panel, diverse 5 inch level OLED panel products such as VR panel with 806 ppi, the highest value within the industry, and Bio Blue, a VR panel which minimized harmful blue light.

LG Display showed 77 inch UHD OLED panel for TV, 55 inch dual side panel for signage, 65 inch concave OLED, and demonstrated their strength as the leader in large size OLED panel.

Quantum dot sector also presented a strong front against OLED in SID 2016. Nanosys and QD Vision exhibited OLED TV and quantum dot TV next to each other and presented merits of quantum dot.

According to QD Vision, quantum dot could consume 50% less power compared to OLED. Nanosys explained that while white OLED panel TV shows brightness of only up to 500 nits, their own quantum dot TV can actualize 1,200 nits of brightness.

[SID 2016] JDI CTO “LCD isn`t Suitable for Flexible”…Emphasizes ‘Human Friendly’

CTO of  JDI , Hiroyuki Ohshima, estimated that the display will evolve to flexible and human friendly, and emphasized that LCD is not suitable for flexible

During his keynote session in SID 2016 (22-27 May), Ohshima discussed the future of display. He explained that the display will evolve to System Integrated Display that combines different technologies and toward flexible.

Display is expected to become more interactive with human body. Beyond touching the screen with fingers, biological signals will be recognized such as heartbeat, eye gaze, fingerprint, and palm print. Through these, display will evolve into an input device that moves deeper into people’s lives.

For these to become a reality, Ohshima explained that diverse technologies such as touch, recognition, security, health care function, pen input need to be applied to the display. He stressed that display is heading toward flexible and noted LCD’s limitation regarding this issue.

Ohshima told the attendees that as LCD requires backlight and glass substrate is used, it is not suitable to actualize flexible panel. For OLED, it is expected to move forward to flexible and foldable exceeding ultra-thin and curved. However, he added that OLED still has several issues that need to solved including not being able to follow LCD in terms of pixel density.

As a keynote speaker for SID 2016, Samsung Display ’s Executive VP and Chief of Research Center, Dr. Sung-Chul Kim explained that display will expand human life experiences through application to automotive, window, mirror, etc. and emphasized that AMOLED will become a key solution for this.

During his keynote session in SID 2016, Kim explained display related technological issues and AMOLED’s advantages. In particular, he highlighted AMOLED’s characteristics suitable for flexible.

Displays that can turn from a wall or window into an information display simultaneously require flexibility and hardness. Kim also explained curved display is suitable for automotive uses. In terms of mirror display, AMOLED is suitable as superior color gamut is required.

Kim added that for realistic image required by VR (virtual reality) and others requires ‘driving tech’. He explained that foldable, rollable, deformable, and stretchable displays will produce more attractive devices, and provide new experiences through VR, automotive, digital signage, etc.

Kim told the attendees that display is a window to communicate with the world and expands lives. He emphasized that AMOLED is the key solution for future display, and will bring more opportunities than expected.
