The 5-millimeter-thick display is light, pencil-thin, and promises high definition with no after image–that motion-induced blur you may see in an LCD screen. In addition, it boasts a contrast ratio of over 100,000:1. LG is setting up a stepped-up pricing war, strongly hinting that its world’s-largest OLED display will be far more affordable.
LG Display is able to achieve low fabrication costs by using oxide thin-film transistors for the panel replacing amorphous silicon. In contrast, Low Temperature Poly Silicon (LTPS) TFTs are generally used in existing small-sized OLED panels. The Oxide TFTs type produces identical image quality to high performance of LTPS base panels at significantly reduced investment levels, according to LG Display.
By using White OLEDs (WOLED) which vertically accumulates red, green, and blue diodes LG Display claims to achieve a lower error rate and a clearer resolution screen.
2. Stream TV Networks, Inc. announced that it will unveil its new Ultra-D technology at CES 2012. Ultra-D is a next generation 3D without glasses display technology that surpasses all 3D viewing experiences offered to date.
Developed by Stream TV Networks, Inc., the producer of the eLocity brand of mobile tablets launched first in 2010, the Ultra-D technology is strictly proprietary and leverages custom hardware, middleware techniques and software algorithms to create unprecedented autostereoscopic 3D imagery. This technology will provide consumers with access to unlimited 3D content by enabling real-time conversion of:
* 2D content into 3D autostereoscopic (without glasses)
* 3D stereoscopic content (with glasses) to 3D autostereoscopic (without glasses)
The Ultra-D technology thus supports the immediate adoption of 3D consumer hardware despite limited availability of 3D content. Real-time conversion of 2D to 3D and 3D with glasses to 3D without glasses works seamlessly with various content formats including Blu-ray, DVD, PC gaming, Internet, cable and satellite content.
Another key differentiator of the Ultra-D technology enables customization of the 3D effect to address individual differences in spatial perception and the varying impact of 3D rendering on viewer comfort. The technology allows users to increase or decrease the real-time 3D rendering effect, adjusting for variance in content quality and source as well as personal preference so that consumers can use all Ultra-D products to achieve the optimal 3D picture every time.
