Seiko Epson Eyes OLED TVs

Seiko Epson plans to develop OLED TV technology within three years, to gain an edge in the market for screens manufactured for TVs and other entertainment applications, according to a company executive. The company's new technology will be based around Ink Jet printing.

Seiko Epson already unveiled three OLED prototypes - a 40" XGA OLED TV panel, a 12.5" VGA panel and a 2.1" 144x176 display (130ppi). The company says that currently the main hurdle is lifetime, and once this reaches 10,000 hours OLED TVs may start to appear commercial.
