Toshiba plans large OLED displays by 2009 Toshiba Corp. has told a news conference today that it plans to produce and market large organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays by 2009. Company president Atsutoshi Nishida made the announcement, which follows plans and developments from several other companies to bring OLED's benefits to the consumer electronics market over the coming years. OLED is expected to be a fierce rival for liquid-crystal display (LCD) and Plasma display technology as it progresses.
Organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology has a huge benefit in that it does not require a backlight like LCD, which means a very thin panel can be produced. It also produces fast moving images very well and its power consumption is even lower than LCD, which is already considered to be a low power consuming technology.

OLED displays are already used in digital cameras, cellphones and other devices with relatively small panels. Sony Corp. also has plans for OLED TVs, saying that it will start selling the displays in 2007.
