OLED Beats LCD With 2,560 dpi Resolution "If you thought the 651 dpi resolution of Japan Display's upcoming LCD panels was impressive, you ain't seen nothing yet! Sony, one of the consortium's members, has pushed things even further with OLED screens with 2,560 dpi over 0.5'' (1.27 cm) and 2,098 dpi over 0.7'' (1.8 cm).

These tiny screens are actually designed for digital camera electronic viewfinders or for the displays used in OLED glasses. In fact, Sony's HMZ-T1 gaming headset already comes loaded with two 0.7" 2,098 dpi OLED screens." via DigitalVersus

InfoComm 2012 Notes And Impressions "In a lot of ways, the show reflected how so much of the business these days is about video walls and high impact visual presentations. There were a LOT of video walls, though very few play with shapes other than rectangles.

I saw some 4K screens, and the image quality is spectacular – though these screens make more sense for medical imaging than pushing QSR menus and running ads.


Maybe because it was a smaller show, and therefore they stood out more, but it seemed like there were more transparent LCD products at Digital Signage Expo than here. However, one I did notice was from Vewell. They did a nice job, like Planar has done, showing how these things could be applied as small units in higher end retail." via Sixteen:Nine

The display (which uses UDC's PHOLED materials) is 4.3" in size and features 480x320 resolution on a plastic substrate system." via OLED-Info
