LG Ramps up OLED Production for Release of 55" Set  Print E-mail

When LG announced that they were bringing a 55" OLED television to CES, everything they mentioned pointed toward the TV being a prototype.  After all, there hasn't been a TV like it in production - OLEDs have thusfar been ridiculously small.  It turns out the display will be released to general consumers after all, in the latter half of 2012.  According to OLED-Display LG is expanding its OLED output from 4,000 sheets a month to 12,000 with plans to mass produce the panels in the third quarter of the year.


LG has released a few details on the 55EM9600 TV which are all pretty impressive.  For starters, you'll get a 100,000,000:1 contrast ratio - a number so high as to be nearly meaningless.  We're expecting some very deep blacks.  Gamers as well as movie and sport fans will appreciate the one microsecond  response time that takes care of the blur and blending commonly associated with fast movement. Additionally, the 55EM9600 can do 3D as well as 2D.  We've seen 3D OLED sets at past CES events and in most cases they've put their LCD and plasma counterparts to shame.  The one detail that hasn't been released is the price, but we're guessing we'll find out soon.
