When flat TV screens finally moved from science fiction to reality they came in waves, first the Liquid Crystal Display technology (LCD) then there was plasma, then Surface-conduction Electron-emitter (SED). Now these are being joined by a fourth flat screen technology that has the potential of becoming that roll-up, wallpaper screen promised by fiction. Move over Captain Kirk, Tulsa’s Video Revolution is the first in the city to offer the OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) television that you can purchase from their showroom at 7030 South Lewis.
These OLED panels are constructed of several layers of doped fluorocarbon polymers, the result is a system which is very thin – usually less than 0.5 thousandths of a millimeter thick. OLEDs produce self-luminous displays that do not require backlighting and can operate at very low current of 2-10 volts. The thin displays can be made flexible, and have a wide viewing angle of up to 170 degrees.
