OLED TVs take first place in Value Electronics' 2022 TV shootout

Esteemed US-based A/V retailer Value Electronics conducted its latest annual TV shootout, with very interesting results. It is not a big surprise, but OLED TV won the first places in both the 4K and 8K shootout.

TechRadar: Samsung's latest miniLED QLED TV is not a match for OLED TVs

TechRadar posted an interesting article that reviews Samsung's latest miniLED TV (QN85B Neo QLED, to be exact) and compares it with LG's OLED TVs.

The miniLED TV is excellent with high brightness, excellent color performance and a very good design. But at the end of the day, the image quality is not as good as the quality you get from an OLED TV, especially as the display suffers from blooming/haloing and non-consistent black scene performance.

Applications of perovskite materials in the display industry

This article was extracted from the Perovskite for Displays market report.

Given perovskites materials' unique optical properties, these materials are being intensively researched for both photovoltaic and display applications (as well as several others). In this article we will take a look into the possible application areas in the display industry that can benefit from perovskite materials.

Perovskite QDs

Perovskite-based QDs (PerQDs) are considered a viable Cd-free alternative for display applications, with high PL quantum yields, wide wavelength tunability and ultra-narrow band emission. The main advantages of PerQDs are:

  • Low cost
  • High performance
  • RoHS compliance (despite the lead content)

Samsung aims to reduce the thickness of its future QD-OLED panels by removing the QD glass substrate

According to reports in Korean media, Samsung is developing a new process which will allow it to reduce the thickness of its QD-OLED panels.

The current QD-OLED design uses two glass substrates, one for the TFT backplen (and the OLED frontplane materials), and one for the QD conversion layer. The new plan is to remove the QD glass substrate, and inkjet print the QDs directly on the OLED TFE encapsulation layer.

DigitalTrends: the Sony A95K QD-OLED TV offers the best image quality ever

Earlier this year Sony announced the world's first QD-OLED TV, the A95K. The TV is not shipping yet, but the first reviews are in - and the ones we have seen say that the display quality of Sony's new TV (and Samsung's new OLED panels) is superb.

A reporter from DigitalTrends, Caleb Denison, for example, spent some hours in front of an A95K, and says that the display is bright (the brightest he has seen in a consumer TV) and it offers the most accurate colors he ever saw. The colors are pure and "better than any OLED, and most QLED TVs, too".

Notion Systems installs an inkjet printing system at ITRI for OLED and QLED R&D

Notion Systems, a leading solution provider for industrial inkjet systems, announced that it had successfully installed an n.jet display system at Taiwan's Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI). The n.jet display system was developed in collaboration with MBRAUN/Germany and includes a fully integrated inert glove box solution that combines compact design with minimized nitrogen consumption.

ITRI is now using the new n.jet display system to research and develop novel OLED and QLED technologies. ITRI has developed many OLED technologies over the years, and it is now looking to replace vapor deposition and vacuum coating with inkjet printing which could reduce the number of steps, increase material utilization and increase display quality.

Will Samsung adopt Kateeva's inkjet printers in its next QD-OLED production line?

In 2020 Samsung decided to use inkjet printers made by Korea's Semes, in its QD-OLED production lines. This created a major problem for Kateeva which hoped to win that account, which resulted in massive layoffs including some of its executives. These inkjet printers are used to deposit the QD layer in Samsung's QD-OLED panels.

According to new reports from Korea, Samsung has decided to change course, and rely on Kateeva's inkjet printers in its 2nd QD-OLED production line (the SDC 98.5-Gen Q-2). The reports suggests that the Semes printers do not perform as well as Samsung hopes, and these also cost more than Kateeva's printers (but Semes is affiliated with Samsung, which helped it to get the orders).

Sony launches its 2022 OLED TV range, including the world's first QD-OLED TV, the A95K
