List of next generation display technologies
|Display technology||Companies involved||Status|
|Organic light-emitting diode (OLED)||Sony, LG, Samsung, Panasonic||In April 2007, Sony announced it would manufacture 1000 11-inch OLED TVs per month for market testing purposes. On October 1, 2007, Sony announced that the 11-inch model, now called the XEL-1, would be released commercially; the XEL-1 was first released in Japan in December 2007. As of 2010, LG produces one model of OLED television, the 15 inch 15EL9500 and has announced a 31" OLED 3D television for March 2011. On February 17, 2011, Sony announced its 25" OLED Professional Reference Monitor aimed at the Cinema and high end Drama Post Production market.|
|Organic light-emitting transistor (OLET)||Polyera & Institute for Nanostructured Materials|
|Surface-conduction electron-emitter display (SED)||Canon & Toshiba||On 18 August 2010, Canon decided to liquidate SED Inc., a consolidated subsidiary of Canon Inc. developing SED technology, citing difficulties to secure appropriate profitability and effectively ending hopes to one day see SED TVs in the living room.|
|Field emission display (FED)||Sony, Motorola, AU Optronics||In January 2010, Taiwanese AU Optronics Corporation (AUO) announced that it had acquired assets from Sony's FET and FET Japan, including "patents, know-how, inventions, and relevant equipment related to FED technology and materials". In November 2010, Nikkei reported that AUO plans to start mass production of FED panels in the fourth quarter of 2011, however AUO commented that the technology is still in the research stage and there are no plans to begin mass production at this moment.|
|Laser TV (Quantum dot, Liquid crystal)||Arasor, Mitsubishi, HDI 3D||On January 7, 2008, at an event associated with the Consumer Electronics Show 2008, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, a key player in high-performance red-laser and large-screen HDTV markets, unveiled their first commercial Laser TV, a 65" 1080p model. This Laser TV, branded "Mitsubishi LaserVue TV", went on sale, November 16, 2008 for $6,999.|
|MEMS display (iMoD, TMOS, DMS)||Qualcomm (iMoD), UniPixel (TMOS), Pixtronix (DMS), tMt, Texas Instruments||IMOD displays are now available in the commercial marketplace. QMT's displays, using IMOD technology, are found in the Acoustic Research ARWH1 Stereo Bluetooth headset device, the Showcare Monitoring system (Korea), the Hisense C108, and mp3 applications from Freestyle Audio and Skullcandy. In the mobile phone marketplace, Taiwanese manufacturers Inventec and Cal-Comp have announced phones with Mirasol displays, and LG claims to be developing 'one or more' handsets using Mirasol technology. These products all have only 2-color (black plus one other) "bi-chromic" displays. UniPixel's TMOS and Pixtronix's DMS display technologies utilize vertically and horizontally moving MEMS structures to modulate a backlight, respectively.|
|Quantum dot display (QD-LED)||QD Vision, NanoPhotonica, Nanosys||Many expect that quantum dot display technology can compete or even replace liquid crystal displays (LCDs) in near future, including the desktop and notebook computer spaces and televisions. These initial applications alone represent more than a $1-billion addressable market by 2012 for quantum dot-based components. Other than display applications, several companies are manufacturing QD-LED light bulbs; these promise greater energy efficiency and longer lifetime.|
|Ferro liquid display (FLD)||LG & Philips, Micron Technology, Forth Dimension Displays||Some commercial products do seem to utilize FLCD.|
|Thick-film dielectric electroluminescent (TDEL)||iFire Technology||By the end of 2008, iFire Technology was sold by Westaim to a Canadian-Chinese joint venture, CTS Group. Further developments are now awaited.|
|Telescopic pixel display (TPD)||Microsoft & University of Washington||The technology is still in its nascent stages, and the project is unusual for Microsoft, which is not in the display business. There is a possibility that Microsoft will collaborate with a display manufacturer, but commercial production will not begin until at least 2013.|
|Laser phosphor display (LPD)||Prysm||On 25 February 2011, Prysm announced that its high-definition stackable display tiles, powered by its Laser Phosphor Display (LPD) technology, are now available for shipping to customers.|
