U of Cincinnati shows bright, low-power screens
The Novel Devices Laboratory at the University of Cincinnati has, in collaboration with a number of companies, developed "zero power" e-Design LCDs that can produce bright screens without requiring a large battery to power them. Together with Gamma Dynamics, DuPont and Sun Chemical, the breakthrough amplifies existing light that enters a screen.
DuPont developing cheap OLED printing tech
DuPont Displays says it has developed a way of creating OLED televisions at high volumes and significantly lower their prices. The company relies on a custom-made printer from Japan's Dainippon Screen. It can print a 50-inch TV in less than two minutes, increasing the number of screens made and dropping their production costs. The high-performance displays have also been tested to be reliable in a way that OLEDs haven't been in the past, lasting up to 15 years.
