Having pioneered production of the world’s first full-color, active matrix organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays, Eastman Kodak Company today announced that it will broaden its participation in the OLED industry in order to further promote the commercialization of OLED technology.

To facilitate the company’s move, Kodak has granted full control of SK Display Corporation to Sanyo Electric Company. Kodak and Sanyo formed the SK Display joint venture in 2001 to manufacture OLED displays. Kodak will continue as exclusive licensing agent on behalf of Kodak and Sanyo for certain OLED intellectual property.
