Full HD 55-inch Prototype model Exhibited at 2012 International CES

Sony Corporation ("Sony") today announced that it has developed the next-generation self-emitting display, "Crystal LED Display", and presents a Full HD, 55-inch prototype model at the 2012 International CES (International Consumer Electronics Show held in Las Vegas, Nevada, from January 10 - 13, 2012). It is the industry's first 55-inch Full HD self-emitting display using LEDs as the light source.

It really makes me wonder why Sony is doing parallel development on LED & OLED, since it appears that the display quality is about the same. The LED version is likely to have longer life, too.

Having LED finally replace the compromise that is LCD technology is very exciting to me, so I'd like to do an editorial comparing Sony's strategy with the two technologies, but I really don't know enough about them to comment meaningfully. If anyone can help find more info on them and let me have it I'd be very grateful.

LED/OLED would be the true successor to CRT & plasma displays.

I'm pretty sure Sony dropped OLED development a long time ago (at least for large screens).

Near 180 degree viewing angle and huge color depth look amazing!

I remember reading about SONY quitting OLED bussiness or something. It was here on TPU just a few days ago, I think.

That was me. :)

I'd like to know why they've moved from OLED to LED - and that's a much harder question to answer without some quality info. The main thing I can think of, is the lifetime of OLED panels must still be an issue. I suspect that OLED might actually give a better picture than LED, which is why they are still making it for rich corporate customers who can afford to replace expensive panels frequently, but without any hard info to go on, it's all speculation.

OLED's are to good and amazing and they want to sell other crap first. IMO.

I'd assume it's cheaper to make.

Yeah, I'd like to know too. It looks like just another Sony technology that is very similar to a tech that everybody else is working on, but Sony decides to do differently, just for the sake of it. Sony likes doing this kind of thing for some reason and I dont think it ever ends up in profit overall, but I guess the accountants know better. Blu-ray did work out well for them, but it's only 1 out of 10 times that works. I don't know.

As for this LED technology, idk either, iirc most everyone abandoned the idea because it was difficult to get "ordinary" LEDs to emit enough light or OLEDs were far easier and cheaper or something. It looks, again, like Sony pushing a tech that is more expensive and has doubtful if any advantages, but which has Sony controlled IP. Just like Intel does, being a large corporation they can sometimes force ther own "standards" over the others.

OLED is amazing tech. I've been lucky enough to see a demo, and with infinite contrast comes picture quality that actually looks real.

Its really, really good stuff.
