We've got some interesting updates from Visionox today, regarding their OLED lighting program. The company has started to produce new OLED lighting panels. Those panels (product code BCPW030060A, spec here) are 73x42 mm in size (active area 30x60 mm), and are 1.8 mm thick. The lifetime is over 10,000 hours (LT70) at 1000 cd/m2, and the color temperature is 4500K-5000K. The panels are actually quite cheap at $70. We do not know the efficiency but apparently it's not very high.

Visionox also unveiled their next generation panels, currently being produced in small quantities on a pilot line. The new panels are 80x80 mm in size (active area 64x64 mm) and feature a color temperature of 4500K, over 80 CRI and a lifetime of over 10,000 hours (LT50 at 2000 cd/m2). The new panels are quite efficient (40 lm/W) and Visionox revealed to us that they are using phosphorescent materials. These panels aren't available to buy yet.

OLED prototypes by Visionox

Visionox unveiled two new OLED lamp designs using the new panels. The first is a chandelier with 23 panels and the second is a large desk lamp with four panels.

Visionox is also working on OLED displays. back in August Visionox officially launched their AMOLED project, which includes a 4.5-Gen production line which will start production in 2013. In November 2011 Visionox said they have successfully developed a 7.6" 800x480 AMOLED panel.
