Samsung Mobile Display new technology includes world’s largest transparent OLED prototype
Samsung Mobile Display (SMD) will be demonstrating three next generation OLED displays at the CES 2010.
First is the14-inch qFHD 3D OLED prototype, claimed to be ‘Crosstalk Free. This 3D panel is said to be the world’s first OLED display to feature qFHD resolution (960x 540), a contrast ratio of 100,000:1, a colour gamut of over 100 percent NTSC and a slim design with a panel thickness of only 1.6mm. Image switching on this prototype panel is fast enough to eliminate optical crosstalk between the two 3D images.
Next is the14-inch qFHD Transparent OLED for Note PCs. Again it is claimed to have a world first and, this time being the largest transparent OLED panel prototype, designed for use in applications from smartphones, MP3s and Note PCs to ‘head-up’ displays for vehicles, and advertisement displays that are interactive and eye-catching. When the screen is off, the prototype has up to a 40 percent transparency. The average amount of transparency in the industry is below 25 percent.
Finally there is the 2-inch Electronic-ID OLED operated by RF Power – an electronic ID card prototype featuring a new chip that stores personal information like an identification number.
RF-powered AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode) technology is used for the enhanced electronic ID cards, taking security to a higher level. It can also securely store biographical information and digital imagery in the card.
The screen requires no additional battery power, and instead can draw power from a nearby RF-powered source that is AMOLED adapted.
Some potential applications for the prototype include:
- ID document – e-ID; eVisa on passport; driver’s licenses
- Dynamic security feature for banking & e-commerce – online transactions; credit cards
- Travel & Transport – vehicle registration cards
