    Arrow CES 2011 REPORT: LG plans 55inch 3D OLED TV for 2012


    LG is on course to launch a 55inch 3D OLED TV in 2012. The revelation was made by the head of LG Display during this week's CES show. Sister company LG Electronics has long expressed an interest in OLED, picking up a leadership position in the advanced display technology after Sony walked away from further development, citing costs as too prohibitive.

    At the CES, LG demonstrated a spectacular small screen 31 3D OLED model, as well as new 15inch 2D models.

    3D is automatic nowadays... it's marketing. Besides with the cost of OLED you expect it to do everything.

    LG Display today reported fourth quarter 2010 results and announced that the company ramp up a new OLED fab which can mass prodcue large OLED-TV panels in end of 2013.The vice president of LG-Display Jung Ho says that LG want to become the market leader in OLED-Tv, to reach that goal LG ramp up a new mass production line. With this production line LG want to produce larger OLED-Televisions which are cost competitive to LCD-Displays. We need a new production line because a LCD panel from a 8G fab is 2-3 times cheaper than a same sized OLED from a 5.5 gen fab says Mr. Young Soo Kwon, CEO of LG Display.

    LG plans to introduce the 31 inch 3D-OLED in the United States and Europe this year. In 2012 LG plans a 55 inch prototype for 2012.

    It took how many years for LCD technology to become affordable despite having been used on computer monitors for years prior?

    I could have sworn i read a post not too long ago where avjunkie said LG plans on shipping this with around a $6k price tag. For the life of me i cant find that post anymore.

    Ah, found it:
    "...I don't see the industry moving towards OLED for another 2-3 years. It has much to prove in picture and durability.The lg sku is priced near 6k. Which is going to be interesting."

    That's more in line with making sense. If it gets down to 5k by the holidays and there aren't many quality control issues, could get things rolling. Although Rogo and another forum member have mentioned off angle color shifting, and I don't think these will be much better- if at all- than a VT50.
