I'm a big fan of Kateeva, but I wish that piece contained more news and less old info.

Good to see they are ramping up production capabilities for the YieldJet stuff, but that's several steps away...

I'm glad to hear that a company that has developed an optical plastic claims it's better than glass and half the price. Whew.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, however.

LG uses the 8G substrate size for their planned production, which will have a capacity of 26,000 sheets per month (if memory serves).

8G substrates are 2200 x 2500mm. You can make 6 55-inch TVs...

I never much believed the Samsung rumor was real, so I really doubt -- now -- that it was real.

It seems much easier to conclude that the rumor was false than that Samsung canceled something deep...

Normals do not sit up close like some AVSers. They just don't.

So while I don't dispute the premise here, I dispute very much that it constitutes anything even slightly meaningful.

Mirasol has been on life support for several years. I doubt it will get off of it until it's dead.

Isn't this simply going to be thousands cheaper than the OLED?

It could be marginally desirable in that size. I suspect the global market would still be below 1 million units annually.

The LG quote, notably, talks of rollable panels -- not rollable TVs.

The utility of the former is completely clear: You wrap panels around things that aren't flat, that's got a lot of commercial...

(1) is wrong. You are confusing too much luminance in your peak white with "too much contrast". I'm sorry, but you are.

You can post 10,000 pictures. Not one of them will prove that 1000:1 contrast is the limit of the human eye, because it isn't.



This is pretty much spot on.

Worst case you get a $1000-ish Vizio M series (2014 model) and don't sweat the picture quality; just enjoy the new cave.

The eye can do >10x what you've read -- at once -- so I recommend looking for better sources.

There remains no way Samsung can scale 10-figure production volumes using SMS. Sorry.

So this story is missing a fundamental detail (new tech) or doesn't add up.

I still don't think LG understands what they are talking about with respect to uneven aging, sorry.

The rest sounds great, though. (Well, the $5000 55" 1080p set doesn't sound exactly great.)
