Panasonic shows 55″ curved OLED TV prototypes at CES 2014
Sony and Panasonic recently cancelled their OLED TV joint-development project, so we weren’t expecting any OLED TVs from Panasonic at CES (even though they did say they will continue to develop OLED technology alone). So it’s a nice surprise to see Panasonic show six 55″ curved OLED TV prototypes at CES. Interesting, three of those panels are convex and they all combine to create a long and cool S-shape display.
These are just prototype of course, but apparently the TVs are spectacular. Panasonic’s earlier flat 56″ 4K Prototypes (unveiled at CES 2013) used AUO produced Oxide-TFT backplanes and Sumitomo’s P-OLED materials (deposited in a printing process) and a direct-emission architecture. It’s highly likely that these new prototypes are made using the same materials and printing process.
