I doubt it. In the case of plasma, PWM was a solution to getting around the fact that a plasma cannot excite at middle levels, despite the occasional mention of some weird attempts in that regard. I remember monochromatic plasma monitors in the late 70's......but plasma basically could not be a TV set without it.

OLED requires no such technology, so I would think that as the material itself gains brightness that it'll be easier and easier to pulse to gain motion handling. As far as color uniformity, I have no idea either way.

Very quick catch Desk. 4 hours ago.

I wonder: will LGD require that UD not exceed certain technological abilities? (In order to remain the technology leader)?

This agreement is for LG to license certain UD patents and technology and to purchase certain manufacturing materials from UD. It is not a cross-licensing agreement and UD has not licensed any LG patents or technology...

Correct, Universal Display does not make any product (other than OLED input materials). The stock jump in UD just paid for my OLED tv and then some. Of course, UD is a long-term pay for me.

I have a pioneer pdp6100 I bough for a fortune back in 2005 and its still going strong. I have been concerned about what I would buy if it went down. My question for you who have been following the oled, do you think the oled would be a comparable image to my plasma?
Thanks
Rod

Check back in 2017 and treat your plasma well. Otherwise you will need to assess what is available and what technologies are actually working.

Check back in 2017? He's asking now and the answer is yes. Not the same but a reasonable comparison.

Nearly all current owners of the LG OLEDs feel they have as good or better picture quality than the best Plasmas. So you should be fine by 2017.

If your ten years old plasma goes down, which of the available TV technologies available should you purchase; OLED or LCD. For me it would be hands down OLED, and in fact if your set broke tomorrow, a new OLED set would be far superior to your 10 years old plasma set.

There's some serious commitment to OLED happening right now. This might interest some of you. It's about an agreement between LG and UDC.
