This year is just the start, will be interesting to see next year lineups at the CES.

OLED is still technology in the making, stony road ahead from one lab prototype to products.

As far as one can tell all 110" panels originate from one manuf. Nobody reported any dramatic artefacts in these panels.

I readily ignore prototype displays as meaningless. We say 100+" LCDs years ago (5+) at CES and still, years later, the biggest you can really buy is 84".

Therefore, the biggest OLED is a 55".

I do believe, based on what I've seen in the works, that 8G OLED manufacturing will get real in the coming years. There are breakthroughs in printables that are on the horizon and could start to show in lines by 2015 / 2016. At that point, OLED could begin its assault on the cost curve. It's really up to the manufacturers to decide to go all in on printables and stop wasting time with SMS and, quite frankly, LG's method, which clearly has lost all credibility about being easy/scaleable at this point. It was demoed at CES 2012. If it were simple, they'd already have made meaningful progress. The fact is they haven't.

And you may ask yourself well how did I get here?
And you may ask yourself am I right? Am I wrong?
And you may say to yourself: What have I done?!

^Fact is that 110"@4K panels are listed as products and apparently offered by the producer to different manufacturers of TV sets, very significant for creating the real market. Thus one may expect the 110"@4K will be included in the next year lineups, especially with the availability of HDMI 2.0/DisplayPort chips for TVs. The CES is going to be a testground of this.
On the other hand it is hard to believe in big, 70+" 4K OLEDs showing up as products next year.

I am more convinced LG/Samsung will offer tiny quantities of 70" OLEDs next year that people can buy than that any branded 110" LCD will be available from anyone without special ordering it for >$100,000. (I don't consider the latter a "product".)

^Samsung/LG are furiously kicking the OLED due to the chinese pressure. They are thus not terribly interested in promoting monster LCD's. But they have to embrace the monsters, otherwise will be facing direct confrontation with the chinese. On the other hand, chinese can not yet go entirely alone since their brands are quite weak. It looks to me the 110"@4K TVs will be in the next year lineups and for prices inducing some real sales.

Irkuck, I hope you are right that the TVs will be real. Fundamentally, you should be able to buy a 110" TV, today, for around $10,000 given that you can buy 4 premium 55" sets for 1/4 of that and the electronics required to power a single 110" model would cost nowhere near 4x as much as the single smaller set. But right now, we are talking far more than 10x that if you can talk someone into a special-order unit.

I do hope it changes, even though I'm not currently in the market for such a thing.

A 70" OLED that reached $4000 and has 4K resolution, however, I'd be one of the earliest buyers for.

And you may ask yourself well how did I get here?

^Indeed, 110" LCD panel made in China should not be very expensive by itself. Set producers like Samsung just want to milk extra premium profits from it. But next year one should expect prices mving into the reasonable territory though I am not predicting four digit numbers. Big 4K OLEDs will be still pipe dream or, in the best case, billionaire reality. Besides, I do not see 70" 4K OLED logical, 4K must be in the 100" range if one thinks about the living room viewing.

OLED will eventually be 4K by default (no matter the logic or the need) or it will have even more trouble selling in comparison to the more affordable 4K LCDs.

OLED will likely be 4K by default before it has shipped 1 million units cumulative worldwide.

There will have to be huge improve in pixels yields since for 4K panels yield should be 4x lower than for 2K panels.

Why?  The equation can't possibly be 1:1 with the number of pixels present, or is it?.  By the way, there is no such thing as "4x lower than".  You mean "1/4th of".


Thought #AOY: So as a kid I tested the causality chain of something. When my cat was angry, she put her ears back. When that happened, I decided to push them forward, and then she purred. (!) Turns out that it's not that being angry causes the cat to push its ears back, but being angry and pushing their ears back are two parts of the same exact thing. She could not be angry with her ears forward.

Since OLED pixels are active and complicated, yield should be proportional to their number so Y4K = Y2K/4 where Y - yield smile.gif

LCD proves that division by zero is possible. LCD doesn't want to be just worthless--LCD wants to be LESS than worthless.

Can 110 inch OLED save mankind?

LCD is beating the pants off and kicking the butts of any other technology. 2K OLED is barely available, 4K OLED is written on the sand and 8K OLED is fantasy, while 2K,4K,8K LCDs are easy.

If we fast forward 18 months and we assume the biggest OLED is still 55" or that the bigger one is some stupid price, what does the videophile buy exactly? I'd say a 75" Samsung probably.

rogo: why is it that audiophiles can buy equipment at astronomical prices and those companies make money but videophiles can only buy LCD that sucks?

What is so different about the two technologies? Are you going to tell me that NONE of the audiophiles who shell out zillions would be willing to shell out big money for a good looking picture?

If they would WHY is there no company that can cater to videophiles and make money?

Projection. This is where videophiles go for larger screens and better picture quality. It is where I will be going when I am ready to upgrade my 70" LED backlit LCD.

The $3,000 I spent could have gotten me so much more if I had chosen projection two years ago instead.

It happens to me all the time, usually my phone browser eats it (refeshes the page when I go to grab a link)

Projection really is the only answer to his question. 25k isn't even that high end in the projector world. A home Imax setup is two million (it also includes audio though)

False alternative. You won't be watching projector in the living room daylight.
The real issue which will be pressing quite soon is what to choose when equipping dedicated home theater for movies: a 110" screen with a 4K projector or a 110"@4K LCD display.

You would be surprised at how many people watch their projectors in daylight. It looks about as good as a plasma without a solid AR filter. (No glare, slightly more washout with indirect light, direct sunlight on anything makes it unwatchable anyway so that is moot) You aren't going to be doing any critical viewing in a bright room anyway, and a very solid entry level projector runs at about $800 on average. (4k is just starting to show up, so how quickly it filters down the line remains to be seen for all sides)

I don't see myself ever getting a Flat Screen any larger than my 70". I have moved multiple times since I got it and it has been nothing but a pita. These sizes are reaching a point where it is more about vanity than form or function. A 110" flat screen just is too much on a funtional level. (Especially when a 150" projection setup can be broken down and stored in a 20 gallon plastic bin for a move, wish I could have done that with my 70") Installs for these are going to be insane.

I use Safari and for the last 2-3 days when i hit submit for a post all it does is show the spinning gear. Finally had to refresh page and type again. As I was typing this, AVS died completely and dumped me out. But submit did work this time.

If your objective is portability than indeed projector is an option. Projectors are not for daylight, this washout is an issue. And 110" is necessary for soaking 4K pixels in standard living room conditions. Some experts which hauled 4K displays to their homes claim they see 4K/2K difference at 1.8PH.
