LG to Show ‘World’s Largest’ OLED, 3D TVs at CES
LG will debut the "world's largest" OLED and 3D TVs at CES 2012 in Las Vegas. LG says it has overcome high-cost barriers of OLED.
Cost of the sets is unknown at this point.
According to the LA Times, an LG executive says the company has overcome the high-cost barriers associated with OLED.
“Our objective has always been to actively define and lead emerging display technology markets,” Sang Beom Han, chief executive and executive vice president of LG Display, told the Times of India newspaper about the debuts at CES 2012.
“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.”
OLEDs are commended for their quality, but have been very expensive for consumer adoption. Perhaps OLED sets will help re-ignite flat panel sales via the custom installation channel.
