Kodak orders OLEDs for new digital photo frames Kodak has begun ordering 7.6-inch OLED displays from Chi Mei EL (CMEL) to use in new digital photo frames, reads reports from Taiwan.
CMEL is an OLED manufacturer and is owned by the larger manufacturer Chi Mei Optoelectronics. Production on the new OLED displays is expected to begin in September with shipments to Kodak beginning in November.

It appears these digital photo frames will be aimed towards the higher end market as OLED technology is still expensive when compared to LCD and plasma. In terms of benefits however, OLED is far ahead with less power consumption, richer colors, deeper black and thinner overall space consumption.

CMEL currently has an OLED capacity of 100,000 units and is set to install a second production line to house production for Nokia in 2009.
