Panasonic and Sony are in talks to jointly develop and produce OLED panels for TVs, according to Nikkei. The two companies hope to commercialize OLED-TVs within a few years.<br /><br /><h3>Sony & Panasonic to enter OLED partnership?</h3>The two Japanese firms are currently considering an OLED alliance in order to compete with Samsung and LGĂ¢â‚¬â„¢s rapid switch to OLED technology.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/sonyoledfirst-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/sonyoledfirst-1.jpg" alt="Sony XEL-1" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Sony released their first 11-inch OLED-TV years ago but have never released a bigger model</i></p><br />If the companies plan to collaborate they could share technologies and know-how in the field, in order to accelerate the development of consumer-ready OLED TVs. One of the primary goals is to reduce costs, and according to Nikkei the companies have discussed how to utilize PanasonicĂ¢â‚¬â„¢s printing method. The potential partnership would also mark the first time the two Japanese rivals collaborated on a large scale.<br /><br />Sony has publicly said that they plan to initiate major <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1328787848><b>investments in OLED</b></a> technology, and Panasonic recently started <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1335202278><b>investing in OLED</b></a> manufacturing equipment.<br /><br />Sony has also previously been discussing OLED technology with <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1328094453><b>LG Display</b></a> and <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1332925855><b>AUO</b></a>, according to industry sources. However, it is not uncommon for TV manufacturers to partner with more than one company when sourcing display panels.<br /><br />- <i>Source: Nikkei</I>
