LG to mass-produce 32in OLED TVs by 2011

Sony, Samsung and Toshiba close behind

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Sony may have already produced some dinky OLED panels, but LG Display has become the latest manufacturer to details its timeline for the mass-production of larger OLED displays.

According to a report by DigiTimes, LG is aimed to punch out 32in OLED TVs in volume in 2011.

LG’s investment will have to be pretty hefty though, because the company will have several other TV heavyweights close behind it. Sony may have already produced the famous 11in, 3mm-thick XEL-1 OLED TV, but the electronics giant has already committed itself to spending ¥22bn (£105m/€140m/$205m) on production of “middle- and large-size OLED panel production technology” from April 2009.

Last year, Toshiba also pledged to bring a 30in OLED model to market by 2009. While Samsung’s planning to roll out 13in OLED screens by 2010, in addition to 40in and 42in panels a year later.
