Samsung announced at CES that its first mid- and large-sized OLED TVs will be ready around 2010:
Dr. Jongwoo Park, president of Digital Media business, Samsung Electronics commented that OLED is seen as a contender to be at the center of the future display market mainstream given its very high resolution, and light weight.
The OLED TVs employ AM OLED panels developed by Samsung SDI. The finished products weigh some 40% less than other LCD TVs of the same size while boasting a contrast ratio of 1 million to one, color gamut of 107% and brightness of 550nit.
Samsung is also demonstrating a 52-inch LCD TV with a 50,000:1 contrast ratio and 550nit brightness. Mass production of this model is scheduled to begin in 2009.
