At Ceatec trade-show in Chiba City, Japan, Sony Corp. demonstrates the world’s first 4K ultra-high-definition TV-set with OLED panel. The prototype will unlikely emerge on the market any time soon, but it clearly represents the next step in consumer electronics.

 

56” OLED [organic light emitting diode] TV realizes 4K resolution by using the latest oxide semiconductor TFTs and Sony's proprietary ‘Super Top Emission’ technologies. The panel has been jointly developed by Sony as well as AUO Optronics, a leading LCD panel maker from Taiwan.

The 56” 4K OLED UHDTV prototype delivers all of the features expected from OLED TVs, such as high contrast, brightness, rapid response and wide viewing angles, all of which contribute to rich image quality realized on an immersive, large-size 4K (3840*2160) resolution panel, according to Sony.

Earlier this year AUO 55” and 65” UHD 4K panels with, which were equipped with wide color gamut (WCG) technology with saturation of over 100% NTSC, for the first time in the world.

At present it is unclear when Sony and AUO commercialize the new OLED 4K UHD TVs.

Ceatec takes place in Japan from October 1 to October 5.
