First OLED Display over 100” At CEATEC JAPAN 2009, Mitsubishi Electric unveiled a 155” large-scale organic light emitting diode (OLED) display called Diamond Vision. Mitsubishi recently announced it will start selling the Diamond Vision OLED on September 21, 2010. This will be the first large-scale OLED display system available. The 2009 demo system was built by tiling full-color passive matrix OLED displays, each 96 × 96 mm with 16 × 16 pixels.

The system depth is 99 mm, enabling it to be installed in limited spaces such as narrow paths and station concourses. Read more at displaysearchblog.
