Samsung is showcasing it’s 14″ OLED TV and the Samsung 31″ OLED TV at GITEX 2008 in Dubai. These models are being presented as “finished products” presumably ready for the consumer market as opposed to the OLED TV concept models presented by other OLED TV manufacturers.
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd is offering visitors to this year’s GITEX Technology Week 2008 in Dubai a glimpse at where the TV is headed.
The lineup at the Samsung booth will include two (14.1” and 31”) organic light-emitting diode (OLED) TVs, slimmest 52” LCD TV, quadruple full-HD LCD TV and a 200 Hz LCD TV.
The OLED is seen as a powerful contender for the future display market mainstream, given its very high resolution, svelte profile and extremely lightweight.
“Electronics manufacturers have already begun exhibiting these next-generation displays at major trade shows. However, Samsung is going a step further at Gitex, presenting the OLED as a finished TV product that features an elegant, optimized design”, said Bo Joong Kim, General Manager, AV division, Samsung Gulf Electronics. “Samsung’s OLED TVs represent greater technology innovation and set a new standard for TV sophistication”, added Kim.
These chic, ultra-slim OLED TVs employ OLED panels developed by Samsung SDI (the affiliate dedicated to display production). The finished products weigh forty percent 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 550 cd/m2. Samsung will begin commercial production of mid-/large- sized OLED TVs around 2010.
