According to reports in Japan, Panasonic has started to build an 8.5 generation OLED-TV production plant in Himeji, Japan. At first, Panasonic aims to set up one 8.5G pilot line.<br /><br /><h3>Panasonic to build OLED-TVs</h3>Samsung and LG have already set up OLED production plants and aim to introduce <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1321953693 target=_blank><b>OLED-TVs in 2012</b></a>. Their Japanese competitor in the TV business, Panasonic, seems to be preparing for OLED-TV production as well.<br /><br />Asahi.com says that Panasonic has ordered equipment for a pilot 8.5G OLED production line. An 8.5G production line can efficiently produce up to 55-60 inch TVs. However, at this stage Panasonic is planning to run internal tests with a single production line. For full mass production scale, Panasonic needs more production lines.<br /><br />Panasonic’s current Himeji plant is producing LCDs but it might be converted to an OLED line in the future if they decide to switch to OLED-TV production.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/pewoledlight-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/pewoledlight-1.jpg" alt="OLED lighting" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Panasonic’s OLED lighting</i></p><br />Panasonic recently teased a smartphone with an OLED panel, which indicate their interest in the technology. The company is also producing OLED lighting solutions such as the one seen above.<br /><br />- <i>Source: <a href=http://www.asahi.com/digital/nikkanko/NKK201112090015.html target=_blank>Asahi.com</a></i>
