Sumitomo shows color-tunable PLED lighting panels

Sumitomo Chemical is showing PLED lighting panels at the FPDI 2012 conference. Some of these panels are color tunable, I think it's the first time we see those kinds of panels from Sumitomo:

Back in March 2012 we posted an update on Sumitomo's OLED program. According to the company's roadmap, by 2015 they plan to produce PLEDs on plastic substraces which will feature between 20,000 and 30,000 hours of lifetime and 60-80 lm/W. These plastic based OLEDs will also be flexible.

Sumitomo is also developing PLED materials for displays, polymer photovoltaic cells, and organic semiconductors.
