Korean newspaper ET News reports that Sony is planning to work with Taiwanese AUO in an attempt to commercialize OLED-TVs. Sony reportedly wants to use the IGZO production method to produce large size OLED-TVs from 2013.

Sony has already told us that they want to invest in OLED technology and back in February it was reported that Sony and LG were discussing OLED panel outsourcing.

A new report says that Sony has now turned to Taiwanese AU Optronics for OLED panel production. AUO is one of the largest display panel makers today and they recently detailed their plans to accelerate OLED production. Sony and AUO reportedly want to produce OLED panels using the IGZO based production method that can enable high resolution OLED panels.

According to ET News, the first step is to start production at AUO’s 6. generation plant that has been optimized for small-to-medium size display panels but they could expand to an 8G plant in the near future.

Sony and AUO have already worked together in the past and many Sony LCD-TVs over the years have incorporated AUO’s LCD panels. The OLED talks began late last year, according to DisplaySearch.

Sony has already officially announced their plan to release OLED-TVs in 2013. LG and Samsung will introduce 55” OLED-TVs later this year.
