JOLED – Sony and others create new company to focus on medium-sized OLED displays

in News


JOLEDA new company has been formed to focus on the development and commercialisation of medium-sized OLED display panels. JOLED has been created by multiple partners including Innovation Network Corporation of Japan (INCJ), Japan Display Inc (JDI), Sony and Panasonic.

OLED technology enables displays to be lighter, thinner and more flexible. JOLED will focus on medium-sized OLED panels for use in tablets as well as laptops and signage. This means we could see an OLED display in a future Xperia tablet. Sony has not used an OLED display in any Xperia device so far.

The venture will integrate Sony and Panasonic’s OLED R&D functions with an aim to accelerate the development of OLED panels and become a leader in the global OLED display market. It aims to bring together technology from all parties including flexible displays, printing technology for OLED production and transparent amorphous oxide semiconductors.

INCJ (75%) and JDI (15%) will hold the majority of the voting rights, as they plan additional investments to fund a pilot manufacturing plant. Sony and Panasonic will hold 5% each. The company is expected to go live in January 2015, once it has all of the approvals needed.

Thanks Varun!

  • pratyush997

    YESH!

  • Steve Blow JobZzZz

    LOL. Will fail like everything OLED related. Samsung and LG are the only ones with commercial products in smaller sizes, and samsung is giving up on OLED in larger size screens too. So no, NO OLED screens with Sony products for years to come, unless you’re ignorant enough to not know how Japanese corporate structure works with such joint ventures.

    O_o imagine… All this brands who work in oled display including Sony… IT WILL MAYBE BE THE BEST OLED DISPLAYS EVER MADE IN THE FUTURE!!!

  • Vuyo Ncube

    WoahLED!

  • Bob

    No no no not OLED. Quantum Dot Triluminous is already more advanced, focus on that instead of trying to compete with samsung all the time. I have owned many oled displays and the quality it horrible, the colours and white balance especially.

  • Current OLED displays suck. Way to over saturated. I hope Sony will do it right and bring us some accurate, natural looking displays.
    But personally, I’d still prefer IPS panels.

  • lina

    its horrible, not because its OLED but because its made by crap korean companies.
    Let Sony (look at the TRIMASTER EL) and Sharp (IGZO) do their own OLED, and you’ll see it will be nice :D

  • BCHILD

    Sony’s PlayStation Vita has an OLED display, and it is as beautiful a display as you have ever seen!

  • Seraphimneko??????

    omg, no….

  • FUTURISTIC LOVER

    Flexible oled for Walkman wrist and Sony Smartwatch please!!!

  • smileyint

    Finally something to rival Sammy. But seems so far right now.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    too bad in won’t be in an Xperia device until the Z5 or later, Sony really likes to drag it’s feet when they have a real opportunity to surpass there rivals

  • Bub

    They already did..just not where they really needed it..

    SONY PS VITA – 1000…

  • finch35

    I wonder how sony made their ps vita into OLED while their phones/tablets were made with LCDs or IPS (recently)

  • chris

    Oled display, I think this is one of the best wishlist on xperia Fans.
    Hope in the future sony can make transparent amorphous oxide semiconductors colour display, not only monocrom display.

    Sony Make believe.

  • i own a tab s and the quality is superior too all my sony devices i am allergic to a disgusting black level

  • Jonathan Bratanata

    i’d love that

  • xperiafan324

    These aren’t phone displays, these 10″~17″ screens, the JDI WhiteMagic OLED from two years ago is probably the first one we’ll see in an Xperia (hopefully the H1 2015 Xperia).

  • xperiafan324

    For those who don’t know, INCJ is a Japanese Government Company set up on a temporary basis (I think it was 25 years?) to spur growth, innovation and collaboration among Japan’s Companies. JDi is also chiefly owned by INCJ btw.
    On Topic : Seeing the progress JDI has made in only 2 years time, and having all those innovations become a part of a Joint Venture between Panasonic and Sony, I can only say that Samsung and LG better watch out, the japanese companies are playing for keeps.

    Look up some of Sony’s current OLED offerings in the industrial sector, those are THE MOST color accurate monitors on the market. Samsung is the sole company to blame for the OLED’s ‘over-saturated’ look. If Samsung were to allow it, truth be told all it would take to fix that over-saturation is a simple calibration file, since OLEDs are digitally calibrated, unlike LCDs which are analog-calibrated displays.
    LG’s huge OLED TVs are a great showcase for the technology, low power consumption, true blacks, amazing viewing angles (wayyyyyyy better than ANY IPS technology, even IPS Neo), and sumptious accurate colors.

  • xperiafan324

    QD Triluminos was also used to CATCH UP with the color gamut of OLEDs. OLEDs have the widest color gamut, most accurate colors (if correctly calibrated which honestly isn’t that hard to do), fastest response times (0.01 ms), and let’s not forget the true blacks.
    Look up Sony’s current OLEDs for the business sector, or look at LG’s huge TVs on Digital Versus (those guys quantify everything in their reviews) to get an idea of what OLEDs are capable of.
    In short OLED = awesome, Samsung OLED = Oversaturated.

  • xperiafan324

    Yeah just look at what happened with JDI./sarcasm

  • xperiafan324

    Samsung made the Vita screen. In fact the IPS in the new Vita is actually much more color accurate than the OLED of the last Vita which had an overly cool color temperature and over-saturated colors.

  • xperiafan324

    Sony sourced that OLED from Samsung.

  • SopNaw

    Yes but if this is the case, they should be allowed to take time for them to think how they are going to introduce in their smartphone screens and how technology… etc. For that the displays are ready to be integrated into their smartphone… And finally for their screens become a true competitor also because Sony have never integrated a OLED display in a smartphone before.

  • David Hvatov

    I still like IPS more.

    Which display is the best IPS LCD, Super AMOLED or OLED display?

  • RealityCheck2013

    The OLED display on my/the PSVita(well the older models now) is AMAZING so it’s a shame it’s not on Xperia phones :( When i go from PSVita to Z1 the Z1 doesn’t look as good really.

  • Keyvan Ghanbary

    The OLED of your vita made by samsung!
    New vita model dont have oled panel and use tft lcd panel.

  • Keyvan Ghanbary

    OLED all the way and its future

    in 2020 we will start using oled display tv with price started at 499usd at 32 inch

    “JOLED has been created by multiple partners including Innovation Network Corporation of Japan (INCJ), Japan Display Inc (JDI), Sony and Panasonic.”

    JDI is made by INCJ + Sony + Toshiba + Hitachi
    So it’s mean Sony invest like 2 time in JOLED. And now we can also count on Panasonic.
    The first Sony OLED TV in 2008 was really amazing with her fitness of 3mm.
    The phosphore Z2 screen is very cool. And the new Trismaster EI oled seem to be much better.
    but with this new brand I guess we will be able to advance faster.
    Even Sony have some difficult they are always in the front line trying to innovate and improve his device. Japan is determinate to stay the best in screen and they really do all for stay number one. I am curious to see the result of their effort.

  • Jumbo

    Hey guys! The JOLED is created by multiple partners right? So where is Samsung??? XD

  • SopNaw

    Yes… But japanese partner only, no others. Because the Japan is a BIG master in the display technology and its know-how in matters of screen technology with all this partner of Japan is very useful for the world of today, to upgrade…etc

    Samsung is not really bad BUT the japan can do it, i’m sure they can kill Samsung OLED displays, technology of others…etc

  • Melfes Wired

    the best oled display will and can only be made by sony

  • Melfes Wired

    maybe a xperia tablet

  • Melfes Wired

    only if u ever gave a look at those BVM OLED monitors

  • Melfes Wired

    nope and nope, the light from Quantum Dots is more like laser, which is very very pure, and the accuracy of oled is really a problem, if it’s not dealt well. Also the fastest response time couldn’t mean anything, if it’s dealt the old way like lcd.

    As for LG’s OLED TVs, if u ever cared to google that, u will know how bad it works. the gamut of LG’s OLED TV is so poor that even LCD could easily surpass that.

  • Melfes Wired

    No likely to be better than Trimaster EL
