How the Retina Display MacBook Pro Handles Scaling "Earlier this morning Apple introduced its next-generation MacBook Pro equipped with a Retina Display. The 15.4-inch panel features a native resolution of 2880 x 1800, or exactly double the standard 1440 x 900 resolution of a regular 15-inch MacBook Pro. As we've seen in the past however, an ultra high resolution screen in a small form factor can make for some very difficult to read text. The Retina MBP ships with a version of OS X Lion however that supports a number of scaling modes to take advantage of the ultra high res display." via AnandTech

Sony developed a 9.9" flexible OLED panel "Sony has developed a 9.9" 960x540 (111ppi) flexible OLED panel, using an Oxide-TFT (IGZO) backplane and a WOLED-CF architecture (RGBW). The thickness of this panel is only 110 um. To make this panel, Sony used two glass substrates (for the backplane and the color filters) during the production process, which were later removed. This allows Sony to use their regular OLED manufacturing process. We're not sure what kind of material is used as the final substrate." via OLED-Info

InfoComm12: DisplaySearch Conference Notes "The big drivers there are video walls and QSR menu boards. I knew Burger King was rolling out in a big way with digital menu boards but I did not know it was getting to 28,000 installed screens by this summer. Holy crap!

...

Mother glass production has pretty much stopped at the Generation 10 size, which means the manufacturing plant cranking out huge sheets of glass for LCDs are not going to go any huger. The market is shifting from BIG to multiple uses, i.e. all kinds of smaller screens for all kinds of devices.

Only 18 percent of the commercial display market uses LED backlit displays, though the percentage is way higher on the consumer side." via Sixteen:Nine
