[photopress:IT_oled_screen1_1.jpg,full,alignright]China Business News reports that China’s first Organic Light Emitting Display (OLED) assembly line will become operational in October in Kunshan, Jiangsu province.
Industry experts see OLED technology as the future of screen production in China as domestic cathode ray technology (CRT) becomes obsolete and its liquid crystal display (LCD) businesses lag behind foreign competitors.
OLED is thinner, lighter, scrollable, quicker in response, wider in vision angle and more colorful than LCD. It is also normally much, much smaller. And it is flexible.
Sichuan Changhong’s is currently building an OLED assembly line capable of making 12 million one-inch units a year (notice the size), which is expected to become operational in the first quarter of next year.

Li Shuchong, general manager of CCID Consulting’s Semiconductor Research Center, said China’s OLED gap with Japan is much narrower than for LCD and plasma displays because OLED is in its infancy around the world.
He said that China is the most important market for OLED because of the sales of mobile phones and MP3 players.
