Aixtron is offering OVPD deposition equipment (developed originally by Universal Display, and licensed exclusively to Aixtron) that, according to the company, offers an optimized and efficient deposition with very short cycle times compared to conventional VTE systems - which should lead to drastically reduced OLED production costs.

Aixtron Recently announced that it's new Gen-8.5 OVPD demonstrator system is now available for initial customer tests.
