    If the PS3 powered television we reported on recently isn't enough to get you salivating then perhaps the new Mitsubishi 155" OLED screen will get your tech senses in a twist.

    The prototype screen uses 1.5"x1.5" modular OLED blocks to produce the incredible 155" diagonal panel - these blocks can be added to, or removed to alter the current size.

    This modular design actually means that it can also be curved or moulded into the shape of the installed room to suit. The OLED design offers all the benefits of the technology platform such as a brightness ratio around three times that of a competing LCD screen as well as an impressive contrast ratio.

    For those of you who haven't seen OLED technology in the flesh, the quality is staggering, however there is one massive downside, the organic lifespan. They are rated at around 20,000 hours of use which translates to around two and a half years if you left the panel on 24 hours a day. When you compare this with the leading 100,000+ hour rating of the plasmas from Panasonic it does seem to be an issue.

    when i saw "OLED" + "155"" side by side in the thread title.. i said to myself "wtf"

    consideirng the OLED has been having a hard time pushing large format mods.. and hearing only the recent breakthrough to 27-32" OLED screens.


    But now seeing that it's peiced together, it makes much more sense.

    It's impressive non the less. It would be a PERFECT alternative to projector style systems. that burn out far more quickly then this 20,000 hour OLED system would, and has all the advantages of increasing the resolution where as projectors aren't that easy.

    Wonder what it would cost to cover a typical area.

    Wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see these suckers being slapped in all the New TV network studios covering entire walls and so forth.

    initial LCD screens didn't exactly have a long life either.... or good quality.

    they gotta start somewhere.. and 2.5 years of life is WAY better then the typical projector even with high end bulbs.
