Sony and Panasonic plans to enter OLED-Tv market with LG-Display panels

Is the rumor true? Has Samsung Display stopped producing OLED TVs?

Japanese Sony and Panasonic television makers want to introduce their own OLED-television devices but now with their own developed/produced panels. Both companies plan to buy the OLED-TV panels from LG-Display. The goal is to improve the WRGB Panel picture quality with some new algorithms. At the end of 2013 Sony and Panasonic decided to stop their OLED-TV development in order to combine Panasonics printing organic material technology with Sony’s Super Top Emission technology. However, both companies failed to meet their goal because of the production costs. At CES-2014 Panasonic showcased 4K 55 inch OLEDs made to be bendable in both ways with their own printing technology. This technology is not ready for mass production yet, but we think that Panasonic will be ready in 2015 to start production of cheap large panels. Also, some Chinese companies like Skywoth, Haier, TCL, are buying panels from LG-Display. The japanese Television makers Sony and Panasonic want to introduce their own OLED-Television devices but now with their own developed/produced panels.

Did you see our report of how Samsung Display stopped their OLED-TV production? Samsung Display is active in developing OLED-TV because this Korean company sees the market signs, and also they have noticed how LG-Display has succeeded to sell that kind of panel. The Korean company aims to develop a mass production and cost effective model and therefore they decided to stop mass-production in its pilot line (V1).
