LG has plans for OLED

LG expects to sell 600,000 panels based on the new display technology this year, based on a stronger second half of the year. Next year, sales of HD and 4K OLEDs are expected to hit the 1.5 million mark and in 2020 LG hopes to sell over 12 million 4K OLEDs. The numbers represent OLED panels that LG also sells to other TV brands.

LG said earlier that the company expects OLED to become cheaper than LCD some years from now.

HDR and VR are two areas where OLED should shine, and printable wall sized, rollable OLEDs will simply destroy LCDs. Many homes could not even get an 80 + inch TV through the door. Unwieldy is an understatement. The ability to roll the TVs out has huge implications not only for deployment and installation, but also for shipping and storage.

The second I can print out a 3840x1600 OLED HDR TV that is ten feet wide for a reasonable price, is the second I think the home theater projector market will implode on itself. Maybe by 2020? Hopefully sooner.

Is it possible to do glasses-free 3D on OLED? That would be sweet. Then suddenly you've got all the checkboxes enabled for a perfect home display for any use.

Unless LG fixes the black edge problem, those numbers are way optimistic.

Maybe in hobbit land. Most front doors are about 80" tall. You can easily fit a 80" diagonal TV through. Going up and down stairs is a different story.

OMG, that picture is toooo much !
Is that really a picture of someone living on the third floor of a building located on a rather urban area having an extra large LCD panel delivered to his apartment by having it lifted by a construction CRANE ?!? Or did you just use some picture you saw of something very flat and thin being lifted by a crane to a third floor apartment ?
If true, what kinds of city permits must one go through to get it accomplished and at what cost ?

As has been stated in this forum repeatedly, LG Display says they will sell 600K panels in 2015. That's a far different thing than LG producing and shipping 600K OLED TVs in 2015.

If you read the article, Displaysearch estimates of the 35K sets sold about 31K were in LG TVs, the rest were in Chinese TVs. That's a little under 90%. If that ratio holds throughout the year, then 540K would be destined for LG TVs if no other companies OEM them. But there are reports that other companies may be OEMing them and it may happen in time for this year's holiday season. And the Chinese should be able to improve their anemic OLED TV sales.

But if you consider the time lag from the time a panel is delivered by LG Display until it finds it's way into a TV and then into a retailer's inventory and then into a buyer's home, far fewer of those 600K panels sold would be expected to be sold in TVs in 2015.

The OLED TV sales rate certainly has to increase, but I think it will and I think 600K panels sold in 2015 is not that unrealistic.

Looks like a kitchen counter top. Granite or Quartz.

No it is a plasma tv. I got that picture years ago somewhere from the internet.


Comparing to the size of the door and the windows, it is at least an 85 inch version.


That plasma weights 160kg = 358 pounds. You can not carry it in narrow areas like stairways. That tv was extreme expensive, delivery with a crane is a wise option, not that expensive, compared to the tv set.

Remember that TVs aren't the only things that use LG's OLED panels...

Nor of course are LG's TVs.

For example, there is at least one vendor of commercial broadcast monitors that will be releasing a 55" OLED version - that will have to use LG panels.

The Apple Watch uses an OLED display, which is an LG panel.

You get the idea.
