Earlier this month JOLED unveiled new display prototypes at FineTech Japan. Today we have received this interesting new video from JOLED that shows the displays in action:
In the video you can see all of JOLED's new prototypes. First up is the Automotive demo - JOLED demonstrated two panels, a 12.3" 1920x720 (167 PPI) panel and a 12.2" 1920x1280 (180 PPI) panel. Both are printed on LTPS backplanes (as do the rest of the company's small and medium sized panels). JOLED's latest investors, Denso and Toyoto Tsusho, are both helping the company with its entry into the automotive display market.
The video next shows a 3x3 tiled 6K 3K made up from 21.6" FHD OLEDs, and then JOLED's JOLED's 21.6" 1920x1080 gaming "eSports" monitor developed with Burning Core.
The next display is the 27" 4K "Home Display" (164 PPI) that JOLED see being adopted in smart home applications, followed by a flexible OLEDs wrapped around a column - a 21.6" 4K (204 PPI) AMOLED that has a curvature radius of 60 mm.
JOLED also shows a flexible OLEDs aimed towards train or metro signage. The panel itself is 21.6" 4K (204 PPI) and it has a curvature radius of 200 mm (the panel weighs just 162 grams).
The video next shows the 21.6" 4K ASUS ProArt PQ22UC (which, JOLED says, will finally be released soon) and JOLED's medical monitor panels (21.6", 1920x1080 resolution).
Finally, the video shows JOLED's first OLED TV panel. The 55" 4K (3840x2160, 80 PPI) panel offers a 120Hz refresh rate and a color gamut of 100% DCI (135% sRGB) and is printed on JOLED's Transparent Amorphous Oxide Semiconductor (TAOS) backplane. Last month JOLED told us that it has no plans to produce large size OLEDs at this stage - and this TV is on display just to demonstrate JOLED's printing technology.
In December 2017 JOLED started commercial low-volume production of its 21.6" 4K OLED panels, at the company's pilot 4.5-Gen line. JOLED has announced plans for a mass production 5.5-Gen line that will be established in Nomi City, Ishikawa Prefecture, by 2020.
In August 2018 JOLED raised around $400 million from four new investors - auto parts maker Denso ($270 million), major trading house Toyota Tsusho ($90 million) and Sumitomo Chemical and Screen Holdings. Later in August, JOLED announced that it has signed an agreement to develop, manufacture, and sell printing equipment together with Panasonic and Screen Finetech.
