Oregon-based visual display specialist Rosen Aviation has signed a new partnership with Japan-OLED which will pave the way for it to begin providing new large-format OLED cabin displays starting next year. Sizes will range from 48 to 65 inches, with the potential for even larger displays as development progresses.
The large-format OLEDs offer superior picture quality to LCD displays, with contrast ratios of 1,000,000:1, HDR True Black, and wide color gamut (WCG), according to Rosen. In addition, it said, the new displays weigh approximately half the weight of comparable LCDs, making a 65-inch OLED similar to the weight of a 32-inch LCD. Such weight savings have the potential for new dynamic IFE applications for business aviation and VIP aircraft, the company noted.
“The availability of large OLED displays creates endless opportunities for Rosen and its customers,” said Lee Clark, the company’s senior v-p of strategy, adding that it is no longer forced to pick and choose based on customer requirements. “Now we can offer a complete OLED solution for any application, saving our customers space and weight, while simultaneously offering their end-users the best picture imaginable.”
