Mitsubishi demos 155-inch OLED TV
Using modular technology, Mitsubishi has showed off a prototype OLED television that measures 155 inches.
Mitsubishi says the display is three times brighter than a typical LED TV. Ideally, it’d be used in large sports venues and other outdoor uses, according to Mainichi Daily News. There’s no word on when the prototype will become a finished product.
Now, don’t get too excited. This doesn’t mean Mitsubishi has solved the familiar OLED problems of short life and difficulty in depositing organic materials over large surfaces. (We have, however, seen some developments in OLED technology lately, including a longer-lasting organic material from Kodak and ink jet technology for spraying diodes over larger screens.)
The modular system is actually comprised of 720 square blocks, each measuring roughly 1.5 square inches. That makes them considerably smaller than the OLED televisions that are already on the market, which top out at 15 inches, but it also means Mitsubishi could craft a TV in any size. The use of blocks also allows Mitsubishi to make a TV with curved surfaces.
A Network World video on the TV says the set lasts for roughly 20,000 hours, which isn’t bad, but home TVs should ideally last much longer. In any case, a TV like this isn’t fit for home use because you can see individual squares up close. Still, what I wouldn’t give to play a round of Halo on it.
