OLED moves ahead, rear projection steps back

Sony announced today it will no longer manufacture rear projection TVs and will instead focus on LCD (liquid crystal display) and OLED (organic light-emitting diode). Apparently they were losing money on the rear projection units — down to 400,000 from over 1 million the previous fiscal year.

The precise but pricey OLED technology was first introduced into a consumer television product this month, as Sony launched the Sony’s XEL-1 in Japan. Measuring only 3mm thick, and about $1700, this is a technology that is sure to take off soon. In the meantime, LCD and PDP (Plasma Display Panel) technologies will continue to improve and decrease in costs.
