The OLED rear light from LG is more compact than conventional lighting modules, since it is up to 85 to 90 per cent smaller than traditional rear lights without backlighting. The OLED lamp from LG produces less heat, which improves the durability and longevity. In addition to the new OLED rear light, LG will also be presenting other innovative products such as AV navigation systems, infotainment systems and comfort enhancers such as ADAS cameras, LCD instrument panels and electric compressors.

The display industry is not finding much vitality due to the combination of demand downturn and oversupply.

When OLED and Oxide TFTs, which have high technical barriers and analog characteristics, are not easy to imitate, they are expected to hit the market within two to three years through product technology when they are installed in high-definition TVs and smart phones in earnest.

LG Display is introducing 'OLED Wave', 'OLED Panorama', and 'OLED Circle' ahead of market changes due to its differentiated technology.

According to a recent report released by LG Economic Research Institute, "Display Industry Comes Within 2 ~ 3 Years", the display industry has entered a recession phase since 2H10. The industry has shown remarkable improvement in recent years I can not.

This is attributed to the rapid decline in selling prices as demand for flat-panel TVs, which drove growth in the display industry since the mid-2000s, slowed down in earnest.

In some cases, it was predicted that demand and supply would be balanced from the second half of 2013 as companies continued to reduce their investments due to continued deterioration in profitability. However, if you do not have a game changer to change the market dominance that can fundamentally solve the zero-sum game and CRT replacement due to the commercialization of technology, The report predicts that more companies will lose their presence in the market.

"As Taiwanese companies have succeeded in catching up quickly with technical support and cooperation from Japanese companies and made the market a red ocean," said Lee Han-yeon, a researcher at LG Economic Research Institute. It may end sooner than expected. "

In particular, we anticipate that the source of added value added in the industry will be occupied by a handful of people, or that it will be resolved within at least two or three years before the existing game rules, which are dictated by the rapid obsession of competitive advantage factors, will be repeated.

The report is a key point to watch during this period, including: the development of technology development between Japanese companies or between Japan and Taiwan; and the early mass production of Taiwanese companies in the next generation of product technology.

Sony and Panasonic have recently announced plans to jointly develop OLED TVs, and Sony has already announced a partnership with Taiwan's AUO in the field of large-area OLEDs.

Sharp, which is concentrating on Oxide TFT, is expected to strengthen its cooperation after Foxcon has acquired a stake in Sharp's production line. Despite the loss of competitiveness in mass production, it is necessary for Japanese companies with strong basic R & D capabilities to look ahead.

In addition, Taiwanese companies are in the process of mass production of new technology products ahead of schedule. AUO and CMI plan to start mass production of OLED panels in the second half of this year, though they are small in order to quickly respond to the Korean OLED market.

One researcher said, "OLED and oxide TFTs will be installed in high-definition OLED TVs, high-resolution UD LCD TVs, and FHD display smart phones.

At CES Sony joined the Gold Rush and who provides the picks and shovels

posted on Thursday, 5th January 2017 by Steve May

Sony 4K HDR OLED Dolby Atmos

Sony joined the OLED TV rush at CES 2017, introducing its first Bravia OLED range. The new A1 will be available in 55-, 65- and 77-inch screen sizes. The company also took the wraps off its first Dolby Atmos soundbar and a new Dolby Atmos/DTS X AV receiver.

With the A1, Sony has clearly delivered a stunning looking UHD display. Image quality is exceptional.

The A1 Bravia OLED features the 4K HDR processor X1 Extreme first seen in Sony’s flagship ZD9 series. It also supports Dolby Vision HDR, in addition to HDR10 and (probably) HLG. The screen also features a novel audio system. Acoustic Surface technology actually vibrates the display, enabling sound to be output directly from the TV screen. With no visible speakers, the design is ultra minimalist. To help flesh out the audio, the screen also has a back-facing subwoofer. We've yet to hear this system working – well, CES is kinda noisy. Prices and availability haven't been announced.

Sony's CES isn't all about OLED though. It also unveiled the XE93 series screens, featuring an updated version of the brand's LED edge-lighting, dubbed the Slim Backlight Drive+. This promises greater brightness and contrast.

Sony also ticked all the right boxes for AV enthusiasts. Sony's first 4K UHD Blu-ray player will be the UBP-X800. In addition to 4K playback, the deck is designed for high Res Audio playback.

It's joined by the HT-ST5000 Dolby Atmos soundbar, which features integrated top-firing height speakers, and comes with a wireless subwoofer. Demonstrations of both were impressive, with the forward facing speaker creating a wide immersive sound field. If you want real home theatre, Sony also has the new STR-DN1080. This AVR is a seven channel 5.1.2 Atmos design, however it boasts Phantom Surround virtual speakers which create a full 7.1.2 sound stage. This too sounded very impressive during demonstrations.

With 79 percent of all the global smartphone profits it was so imp't that Apple joins the Gold Rush. I expect they will be placing their bets here soon.

The Great OLED Gold Rush – LG Display pours $400 million in flexible screen production lines

OLED seems to be the new piping-hot buzzword in the display industry. With OLED panels' production prices falling below those of LCD ones, and with Apple eager to make a switch to OLED for its 2017 iPhone, it's no wonder that everyone with a display production line is pouring money in its abilities to make more and more of the organic light emitting diode stuff.

After building its fourth OLED factory in Gumi (southeast of Seoul) last year, LG Display has taken another plunge, lining up a $395.99 million-thick wad of cash to boost flexible OLED display output and build a production line dedicated to OLED lighting panels. In addition to securing its presence in the expanding OLED mobile display market, LG is also pushing WRGB OLED TV sets, having backed up its ambition with a similar investment in OLED production lines for televisions.

With 9 facilities spread between South Korea, China, and Poland, LG Display is among the company's largest businesses, employing 49,000 people in its headquarters alone. Its recent quarterly report showcased a 99% year-on-year profit decline, with "heavy investments by Chinese LCD makers" and "weak technology demand" cited as reasons for under-performing. For the second quarter, LG forecasts a mid-single digit percentage increase as global sports events will drive sales, in addition to an increase in new product shipments.

The LG deal with Apple has yet to be confirmed but if true it will be big news for us.

Apple Pressing LG to Add OLED Display Production for 2018 iPhone, Limiting Samsung's Leverage
Sunday July 30, 2017 5:16 pm PDT by Eric Slivka
Amid reports Apple is investing billions of dollars to help LG begin production of OLED displays for future iPhones, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has issued a new report sharing his take on the situation.

According to Kuo, the OLED display panel for this year's "iPhone 8" has been the "single most troublesome component for Apple in terms of bargaining power," as Samsung is currently the only company with design and production capabilities to make the displays. To counter Samsung's advantage, Apple is working hard to support LG's efforts to ramp up similar expertise and capabilities.We think Apple is therefore committed to having LGD geared up for its OLED iPhone display business in 2018 as it seeks to reduce supply risks. Even though LGD may likely start off with minimal initial penetration in 2018 (we estimate no more than 4-6%), the effort, with the full commitment of both Apple and LGD, will help LGD mature during the process and steadily gain supply share from 2019 onward. This will in turn continuously boost Apple’s bargaining power on OLED prices.Kuo predicts LG will capture 10–20 percent of iPhone OLED display production in 2019 and up to 20–30 percent in 2020, helping to diversify Apple's sourcing and limit Samsung's leverage.

While LG will have expertise at production of the display panels themselves, Kuo predicts Foxconn subsidiary General Interface Solution (GIS) will be brought on board to assist with lamination processes. GIS would also offer expertise in production troubleshooting and vertical integration with Foxconn, so it would be an ideal partner for accelerating LG's growth in Apple's display supply chain.

I'll try not to be too speculative, but what if there is another reason to why a Samsung Contract has not yet been announced. What if there is a third party involved that is trying to ensure future access to UDC materials and addressing any perceived patent expirations in the future? Could Apple have inserted themselves into discussions, if only through Samsung? Could Merck be interested in UDC, maybe causing UDC to slow walk this? I know there could any number of purely speculative reasons for the delay, I am just wondering if something other than a purely bilateral contract discussion is happening between Samsung and UDC...
