Konica Minolta starts shipping efficient OLED lighting samples under the Symfos brand

Konica Minolta announced a new next-generation lighting brand called Symfos. The first Symfos product is the OLED-010K OLED lighting panel sample kit - which is now shipping. The kit includes four OLED panels, and external driver box and an AC adapter.

The OLED itself uses all phosphorescent emitters (KM is using Universal Display's PHOLED technology) and offers 45 lm/W. This is the same panel that Philips is offering (as the Lumiblade Plus). In fact Philips is producing this panel for Konica Minolta, as was announced in July 2011. We do not know the price of the OLED-010K kit, but Philips is selling each Lumiblade Plus panel for €120.

The full spec of the panel:

  • Luminance: 1,000 cd/m2
  • Efficiency: 45 lm/W
  • Luminous flux: 12 lm
  • Lifetime (D50): 8,000 hours
  • Color temperature: 2,800K
  • Size: 74x74x2.8 mm (excluding socket, cord and protruding parts).
