Korea's Government will invest 30 billion won ($26.8 million) in a 4th-generation (730-920 millimeter glass) in-line deposit system manufacturing process for white OLEDs. The government will invest $17 million, the rest will come from private companies. R&D will focus on making the equipment needed to mass produce the panels, improve the process yield and train around 350 qualified workers.
Korea hopes to have the first Gen-4 plant, and the plan is to start commercial sales in 2013. These will be indirect lighting products. Direct lighting will hit the market at around 2015.
