Might be a while. No mention of 4K televisions in the press release.

JOLED plans to focus primarily on development of medium-size OLED displays for use in tablets, mobile PCs, and signage, where the unique features of OLED, including lightness/thinness and flexibility, can be leveraged.

FlatpanelsHD made a point of stressing for now the partnership is limited to mobile devices, tablets and such - not TV's. Though JDI is partnered jointly by many Japan electronics co's and Gov't just as S. Korea assists LG in it's ventures.

Panny/Sony remains in talks with LG on using their OLED temporarily at least just as they both already use LG substrates in a number of their models.

Samsung 75HU8550w/SEK-3500-UHDVideoPk, 65F8000, 60D8000, 40HU6350, Philips Folio Soundbar
XBoxOne/360, FPS's Borderlands 1/2, EDF 2017/2025, Halo's

Tvs are a expensive gamble that can lose money. This will give them the opportunity to perfect the product.

JOLED is a partnership of four companies. Sony and Panasonic, Innovation Organization (INCJ), Japan Display (JDI). In truth, Sony and Panasonic have very little invested. Voting rights of JOLED is 75% INCJ, 15% is JDI, Sony and Panasonic will each own 5% each.
The good news here is that they are using the OLED printing method rather than LG WRGB vapor method. So eventually the should be able to scale it up to large format from the initial production of phone, tablet and laptop size screens. I wonder if they are using their own printing method or the sealed nitrogen chamber one that Kateeva invented.

Being that I'm quite anxious about buying something to replace my 2007 era Pioneer plasma, I've been hoping that an OLED display from Panasonic or Sony would be right around the corner.

I've read very positive things about the LG 1080p OLED panel and I hope it allows for other manufacturers to jump in sometime next year. The latest LCDs are nice but the possibility of an OLED screen makes it hard to pull the trigger
