Watch this: Sony transforms screen technology

02.06.2010 Screen : Screenagers : OLED

Tokyo – Sony has unveiled a prototype OLED screen, so thin and malleable that it can be wrapped around a pencil – a groundbreaking innovation in entertainment technology.

Constructed from 20-micron thick substrate, this light, slender, stretchable screen incorporates a new form of organic thin-film transistor (OTFT) based on a new semiconducting material with eight times the current modulation rate of existing OTFTs.

By employing built-in driver technology into the OLED screen, Sony has been able to exclude traditional solid chips and their accompanying plastic packaging that are typically part of such products, resulting in a more efficient and streamlined production process.

Able to display a 432 × 240 pixel screen at 121 pixels per inch at a full 16-million colour range, Sony is revolutionising the screen manufacturing processes.
