LG Chem's 60 lm/W OLED lighting panels now feature high CRI (over 90)

LG Chem announced that since April 2013, all its OLED panels have a CRI of over 90. CRI determines a light source ability to reproduce colors on which the light shines, and a high CRI means a "high light source quality".

LG Chem says that generally, CRI and efficiency are trade-off factors, but LG Chem managed to maintain high panel efficiency (60 lm/W), color temperatures between 3000K and 4000K and lifetime at 20,000 hours.

LG Chem plans to release both 80 lm/W rigid panels and flexible panels by July 2013. We're not sure whether these will sport high CRI as well, we'll have to wait a couple more months...
