Thread: Any OLED news at CES this year?

Chill. We can start threads, but then they're open for discussion. Staying on topic is nice, but anyone can expand the topic a bit. None of us have much control over a thread once it's launched. We are equals in a cooperative environment (hopefully), not peons to be ordered to provide answers.
FWIW, I have great hopes for OLED also and follow everything I can find on it. But I can see it's years away, and so may be my "next" HDTV. I have an HDTV I bought last year, and figure it'll be my main TV for at least 5 years. Not every technology "makes it." Some have technical or financial problems that are never overcome. Some are superseded by other technology. I hope you're not holding off waiting for OLED before you get an HDTV- if so, you're missing out on years of HD enjoyment.
Off hand, from what I've read, there really wasn't much on OLED at the show.
And BTW, you're welcome. Although you don't like comments that do not seem to be direct answers to your question, any replies help keep this thread near the top, where it is more likely to be seen and maybe responded to by someone who was at the show.

OLED had NO presence at CES beyond incorporation into the normal CE devices such as MP3 players, car stereo head units, etc. IMO as a display device the technology will be stillborn. Mitsubishi is working on OLED and says commercialization of the technology will be at the end of 2007. I tend to wonder... except for laptops and portables if it won't be stillborn. SED is the technology to beat going forward.

Hitachi's OLED Tech Demo:
Hitachi's OLED Tech Demo:
Hitachi showed off their latest in Organic LED (OLED) display technology. What's unique about this technology is that each pixel on the screen emits its own light so there is no need for a backlight like in traditional LCD displays. The display on the show floor was looping video of bright, colorful scenes that Hitachi put together obviously attempting to show off the impressive color reproduction capability of the display.
The screen measured 7" diagonal with a WVGA resolution (854x480). The video being looped played smoothly with no indication of ghosting, although it did not include any fast motion scenes so we could not get a good idea of the response time.
Though the picture quality was good for a tech demo, what really impressed us was the thickness (or thinness, rather) of the screen. The display was barely over an eighth of an inch thick and completely flat (excluding the stand). Hitachi says they have no official plans to release any products using this technology yet, although considering how impressive the demo was, it's safe to assume we'll see this display being utilized in the next few years.

What does SED technology consist of? I figured there would be something better than OLED that would be found before OLED would make it to market.
