Samsung Display is reportedly planning to begin mass producing 34-inch OLED panels for monitors on November 30. The report comes from local outlet Edaily Korea, which relayed quotes from Samsung Display CEO Choi Joo-sun regarding his company’s plans for manufacturing 34-inch “QD-OLED” panels, as well as 65- and 55-inch QD-OLED panels for televisions. Samsung’s QD-OLED technology is unique in that it utilizes a “QD layer” and blue self-emitting layer for brighter luminance and broad color reproduction.

From Edaily Korea:

[…] QD display is a panel with a QD color filter on top of a blue organic light emitting diode (OLED) that emits blue light. CEO Choi said, “The current QD display yield (the ratio of good products among finished products) has improved from the beginning. It is expected that the yield will get better and better,” [Joo-sun] said. “Full-scale mass production will start on November 30.”

CEO Choi also mentioned specific QD display products. He said, “QD Display will mass-produce and release 65-inch and 55-inch TVs and 34-inch monitors and decide whether to increase production based on market reaction. It is also said that the company’s concerns about the road to commercialization of QD were revealed.

Competitor LG is already selling a 32-inch OLED monitor for users who can’t cope with using something as large as an OLED TV for a computer display. Dubbed the UltraFine Display OLED Pro (32EP950-B), it carries an MSRP of $3,999.99, making it even more expensive than a 77-inch G1 OLED TV with brighter Evo panel (currently on sale for $3,799.99).

    Wait, what?

    Didn’t Samsung essentially abandon large OLED’s in favor of QLED?

    Last year they reversed course.

    More or less; they’ve been slowly working on their ‘large’ OLED tech and have been limping their LCD tech along quite well enough it seems. And their smaller OLED tech has remained in the lead.

    I forget the details, but basically they said they’re getting out of the LCD business, a big part of that being due to finally maturing their OLED tech for larger sizes.

    Perhaps the best part of this is that Samsung is leading with desktop monitors here. LGs OLED tech, while brilliant for video, has its limitations when it comes to static content as well as displaying unscaled text.

  3. Has Samsung “solved” burn in? I know it’s not a huge deal on TV’s anymore unless you watch a news channel 24/7…. but computer desktops frequently show static images a lot. I hope they have found a solution for use in these monitors.

    Yeah, this is the only thing keeping me from going OLED.

    I spend 8+ hours a day in Office applications displaying static menus. I know burnin on OLED is better than it used to be, but my application is still likely to be a problem.

    Could be an issue for many people who play a lot of the same game to. Given that this also was in issue with CRT’s I’m not so sure it is something that’s easy to solve unfortunatelly.
