Talk about curved OLEDs! Panasonic combined six of them—some concave and some convex—and strung them together in a wave. Each panel was 55" with UHD resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate. Very cool-looking, but impractical for any home-theater application I can think of.

 

The Panasonic curved OLED "wave" was a real crowd pleaser.

....good for 96:9 movies anyway....


Beware the statistical correlations that sound like they're indicative of something. Drowning deaths are tightly correlated to ice cream consumption. In fact, be wary of any statistic that is stated as if it comes with a self-evident conclusion: there is no such thing.

You can't think of video signage that is freed from having to be flat as an application?

That's the future of curved displays... They'll conform to the exterior of displays, storefronts (with weatherproofing of course), the edges of stadiums and such... It's a pretty giant market. Of course, Panasonic won't likely be in it....

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working. (Oh, and plasma didn't die because of logistics problems, nor does OLED ship in big boxes because it comes from Korea.)

Actually, I should have said "home-theater application."

I imagine if your tripping on something seriously illegal, the ribbon of TVs eventually looks flat. smile.gif

Wonder how many graphics cards it would take to drive a three screen eyefinity setup?
