At SID 2014, panel makers showed noticeable shifts to higher resolution technology for large-size products including Ultra HD OLED TV panels, compared to Full HD OLED panels that were on display the previous year, according to Digitimes Research.
Ultra HD is now becoming the resolution most TV vendors are pushing for in their new units and panel makers are following by producing both Ultra HD LCD TV panels and Ultra HD OLED TV panels.
Based on the exhibition, LG Display appears to be focusing more on OLEDs for use in TV products compared to Samsung Display, which is focusing mostly on OLED applications for small- to medium-size panels.
China TV panel makers are also sporting similar large-size OLED and Ultra HD TV panel technology at the exhibition, with representatives of BOE stating that, due to the company's recent advancements in high-end panel technology, BOE is likely to see its market share in China rise significantly starting in 2016, added Digitimes Research.
