In this research, several gamers played different gaming genres on LCD and OLED displays, and on curved and flat displays. The study results show that a gamer’s reaction time can be improved by using OLED, while a display’s curvature provides a more immersive gaming experience.

BOE demonstrates new OLED displays at SID Displayweek 2022, including a 95" 8K OLED TV

BOE demonstrated its latest OLED technologies and displays at SID Displayweek 2022. The most interesting display is a 95-inch 8K HDR OLED display, produced on an Oxide-TFT panel with a white-OLED CF structure. The panel was produced using an evaporation method.

This is the first time we hear of BOE's evaporation TV program, since around 2016. The company has an active inkjet printing OLED TV project, and in December 2019 it unveiled a 55" 8K (160 PPI) printed OLED TV prototype.

eMagin reported strong Q1 2022 financial results

OLED microdisplay maker eMagin reported its financial results for Q1 2022, with a strong quarter. Revenues were $7.4 million (up 9% from 2021), as production increased 27% compared to 2021. The company's operating loss declined to $1.2 million ($2 million in Q1 2021), and its net loss was $0.1 million ($1.3 million adjusted for changes in warrant liability).

The Pixel 6a will ship in July 2022 for $450.

New OLED gadget: Panasonic LZ1000 / LZ1500

Panasonic's LZ1500 OLED TV series (77-, 65-, 55-, 48-, 42-inch) offers Panasonic's Master Evo OLED (LG's OLED.EX) Professional Edition panel (except the 42-inch and 48-inch which will offer the company's regular OLED panel). Other features include HDR10+ Adaptive technology, HDMI 2.1 and Panasonic's HCX Pro AI Processor.

The LZ1000 series offer similar specifications, but without the Master OLED Pro panels (i.e. LG's regular WOLEDs, not the OLED.EX panels).

LG Display demonstrates a prototype WOLED display with a microlens MLA array

As we reported last week, LG Display is developing OLED TV panels that utilize a microlens array to increase the light output. LGD unveiled its first prototype display at SID Displayweek 2022.

LGD is showing a 77" 8K panel that features what the company refers to as Meta-lit Lens Array, or MLA technology. The MLA layer increases light output by more than 20%, and the panel achieves a brightness of 2,000 nits. LGD says that the viewing angles is also increased using the MLA technology.

KIST researchers develop a non-destructive method to inspect OLED emitters using terahertz waves

Researchers from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) suggest a new method to inspect OLED emitter materials, using terahertz wave spectroscopy.

The researchers say that this method can be used to analyze the transmission characteristics of the OLEDs, without any damage to the materials. This is unlike current fluorescence test methods that harm the OLEDs because of the ultraviolet rays which changes the characteristics.
