The OLED is where I think all the technology fun is going to be. It
is possible for OLEDs to be printed on more flexible substrates,
meaning they could be embedded on clothing or you could have a rollup
screen. And the unbelievably "paper-thin" OLEDs are going to be
amazing to behold.
I like the fact that the SED is going to be sort of an LCD combined
with a CRT. It will have superior viewing angles, black levels, and
pixel response time (inherent in CRTs), while having the slim feature
and high contrast ratio seen in plasma and LCD technologies.
What are your thoughts? You guys looking forward to these
technologies as much as I am?
My thoughts are that one should believe what is being delivered, and
stop believing the press releases.
The OLED suffers from life problems, 20,000 hours (if they ever manage
is still way shorter than LCD or plasma. They have yet to demonstrate
delivering the panels, and they have yet to demonstrate how the driving
will be any cheaper than the other technologies.
The SED has been overdue for some time now, and keeps getting pushed
It might be nice *if* it ever happens, but it will have lots of catching
to do with respect to plasma. And, the claims of its performance are just
that - claims - until people start delivering them.
It's not quite that bad, both SED's and OLED's have been demo'd in lab
versions for years.
I have seen both with my own eyes at SID conferences. Both are beautiful,
though the OLED was by far the brightest, the darkest, the purest, the
fastest, the deepest/largest gamut, the finest pitch, the most seamless
display I have ever seen.
Production models will vary for sure, but the potential for bright as the
sun, impossibly beautiful imagery is certainly within OLED's grasp, assuming
the electrochemical aging stuff is solved.
