JOLED Inc. (headquartered in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director and President: Tadashi Ishibashi), which develops, manufactures, and sells OLED displays, announced that their OLED display has been adopted for AGC Inc.’s newly developed ultra-thin glass signage infoverreTM Paper-like Screen Series.
The infoverreTM Paper-like Screen Series realizes an ultra-thin double-sided display with the thickness of 9 mm or less by applying the glass display laminating technology of AGC to the OLED technology of JOLED. The features of OLED, such as thin and light weight, high contrast, wide viewing angle, and high-speed response, are contributing to the development of ultra-thin glass signage.
AGC will continue developing applications for the product to expand its use in a wide range of locations such as hanging ads in trains and buses and the door pocket interior panel on trains where the installation of display monitors has been deemed impossible. AGC plans to begin production and sales from November 2020.
AGC and JOLED will continue the development of glass signage that takes advantage of the features of OLED.

About printed OLED displays
OLED is a self-illuminating device that delivers superb picture quality with high contrast, high color reproducibility, and fast response rate. It also combines advantages such as an ultra-thin profile, light weight, and flexibility. Owing to these characteristics, OLED is gaining attention as a next-generation display that will create new applications in a wide range of fields.
The printing method, which is one of the production methods for OLED display, applies and forms OLED materials by printing. With its simple production processes and the flexibility to cope with diverse screen sizes, the technology is expected to represent a major innovation in OLED display production.
