Sony Shows Off their OLED Competitor - Crystal LED

Posted Thu Jan 12, 2012 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

The company says this self-emitting display uses three ultrafine LEDs per pixel.

Sony ditched consumer OLED some time back, but that doesn't mean they're giving up on the quest for a better TV. The company unveiled its latest creation at CES this week - a Crystal LED television that boasts some incredibly impressive stats.

This potential OLED competitor is an LED TV in the true sense of the word. It's not an LCD TV with LED backlighting - it uses LEDs only. In all, Sony's set uses 6 million incredibly small LEDs to recreate the picture. That's three per pixel - one red, one blue and one green.

One other big difference between the Crystal LED and OLED sets is that Crystal LED is still in prototype form. There are no plans currently in place to mass produce or release these sets.
