OLED (organic light-emitting diode) screens are beginning to convince as potential alternatives to LCD, although even their biggest advocates admit there’s a long way to go before they become a commercial proposition. Sony recently used the CES expo to show this 27-inch 1920 x1080 resolution OLED prototype (above) which boasts a 1 million-to-one contrast ratio. However engineers confirmed that they have yet to solve problems associated with a short screen life.
Super-slim OLED panels dim and die far earlier than conventional flatscreen technologies. Also shown by Sony was a range of 11 inch 1024×600 panels.
