JOLED to Start Providing OLED Display Panel Samples to ASUS
– Aiming for printing OLED panels to penetrate the market for medium-sized professional monitors
JOLED Inc. (headquartered in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President and Representative Director: Nobuhiro Higashiiriki) has started offering its 21.6-inch 4K high-resolution OLED panel samples produced using the printing method to ASUSTeK Computer Inc. (ASUS), a Taiwan-based international computer hardware and consumer electronics company.
JOLED’s OLED display panel will be used for “ASUS ProArt™ PQ22UC,” a professional monitor that ASUS plans to unveil at CES 2018.* ASUS states in their press release that “The top-of-the-line OLED technology with pure RGB stripes ensures color purity, and allows PQ22UC to deliver extremely high color saturation with 99% DCI-P3 coverage for greater color accuracy. ProArt PQ22UC also features true 10-bit color depth, achieving a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 for darker blacks and brighter whites. With a response time of up to 0.1ms, ProArt PQ22UC is the fastest monitor in the market and delivers outstanding, blur-free performance when displaying videos and other animated content with fast action.”

JOLED Inc. is headquartered in Tokyo and uses its Ishikawa, Kyoto, and Atsugi Technology Development Centers as bases to conduct research, development, manufacturing, and sales activities for OLED panels, their parts, materials, manufacturing equipment, and associated products.
JOLED was founded in January 2015, combining the OLED panel development divisions of Sony Corporation and Panasonic Corporation, with the goal of accelerating mass production development and commercialization of OLED panels.
In 2016, the company started up a development & prototype line (substrate size: G4.5), establishing a mass production technology and improving productivity. Later, in April 2017, JOLED shipped samples of the 21.6-inch 4K panel, its first product, and began product shipment on December 5.
About printing OLED panels
Characterized by their simple structure, ultra-thin profile, and light weight, OLED panels are gaining attention as next-generation displays that can deliver superb picture quality.
The printing method, which is one of the methods for manufacturing OLED panels, is a technology in which OLED materials are applied to the substrate through a printing technique to form an electroluminescent (EL) layer. Due to the simplicity of the production process, it is expected that this technology will be easily adaptable to OLED production in various screen sizes. JOLED plans to popularize its printing OLED panels in the medium-sized OLED market in which the current mainstream chemical vapor deposition method is considered difficult to use.
