Diamond Vision OLED is a modular display (100" or larger) for outdoor use which tiles small PMOLED panels. Mitsubishi has two kinds of modules: 384x384mm (128x128 resolution) and smaller 96x96mm (32x32) ones - which can be used to create curved or spherical displays. Each pixel is about 3mm in size - you need to view the displays from at least two meters away. The Diamond Vision is bright (1,200cd/m²) and has a good contrast (twice as better as LED, says Mitsubishi) - so it can be used in brightly-lit areas such as airports or stations. The OLED materials were jointly developed by Mitsubishi and Pioneer.
