Mitsubishi shows off 155-inch OLED TV

Could probably eat Sony's 11-inch XEL-1

Mitsubishi has shown off a new Diamond Vision OLED TV at CEATEC – and it's a whopper at 155 inches.

The company is touting it for outdoor use, helping to make advertising more visible and attractive.

The 155-inch screen Mitsubishi is slightly different to Sony and Samsung's OLED TV releases, in that the screen is made up from hundreds of OLEDs with a 3mm pitch as pixels.

Beating LED

Large LED screens work on the same principle, but OLEDs are able to create a higher overall resolution perception due to the way they're arranged.

But the main problems with OLEDs still exist in that the lifetime is only 20,000 hours, meaning around two and a half years of normal use.

This may be fine for some advertisers, but the technology will have to improve for OLEDs to become the ubiquitous outdoor display technology.
