JOLED begin commercial shipment of world's first printing OLED Panels

JOLED Inc has commercialized the world's first organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panel produced using the "RGB printing method", and began product shipment on December 5, 2017.
The product is a 21.6-inch 4K high-resolution OLED panel produced using the printing method. Since its foundation in 2015, JOLED has been conducting research to develop OLED panels using the printing method and working to establish mass production technology. It started shipping samples of the developed product in April 2017. After achieving the necessary levels in product quality and productivity, JOLED has begun commercial shipment. The product has already been selected for use in medical monitors, and JOLED will gradually ship the product for use in a variety of applications.
President Nobuhiro Higashiiriki says, "We are extremely happy to finally be able to ship our company's RGB printing OLED panels in our third year of operation. From here, we plan to accelerate product development and supply OLED panels that match customer needs. We also hope to inspire further innovation in the world's OLED panel market through our company's technologies and products."
OLED panels are self-illuminating devices that deliver superb picture quality with high contrast, high color reproducibility, and a fast response rate. They also combine advantages such as an ultra-thin profile, light weight, and low power consumption. Due to these characteristics, OLED panels are expected to be used for next-generation displays that will create new applications in a wide range of fields, such as medical and gaming displays, as well as automobile applications, in the medium-sized display market.
JOLED developed its proprietary RGB printing method as a method of manufacturing OLED panels. It also commercialized equipment and process technologies that can be put to use for applying materials uniformly to a large substrate. In addition, with its proprietary top emission structure that can extract high light efficiency, JOLED has developed panels with excellent color reproducibility and a wide viewing angle.
Toward the goal of achieving a world full of excitement and emotion due to advanced devices, JOLED will strive to become the leading company in the OLED panel field.
