Sony has been working with UDC since April 17, 2001
Ewing, N.J., Tokyo, Japan (April 17, 2001) Universal Display Corporation (UDC) (Nasdaq: PANL PHLX: PNL) and Sony Corporation (NYSE:SNE) have announced a joint development agreement for high efficiency active matrix Organic LED (OLED) display devices for use in large area monitor applications. Under the Agreement, the parties will develop active matrix OLED displays with extremely high power efficiency combining UDC's proprietary high efficiency electrophosphorescent materials and Sony's proprietary low temperature poly silicon active matrix OLED technology (TAC: Top emission Adaptive Current drive).
Also in 2007 they launched the world's first OLED TV (the XEL-1) although at 11", it should not really be considered a TV. It was only made in small quantities and the price ($2,500) was very high.(and did not use UDCs PHOLED emitters) In January 2013 Sony unveiled the world's first 4K OLED TV prototype unit. The panel was 56" in size and uses an Oxide-TFT and Sony's own "Super Top Emission" OLED technology. Sony never released this TV commercially.

Over the next five years the wearables industry will continue to develop applications ranging from smartwatches, smart wristbands and various facial applications, and will primarily rely on AMOLED technology for displays due to its flexible and energy-saving features, according to Digitimes Research.
Wearable display shipments are expected to have a CAGR of 25% from 2015-2020 and AMOLED is expected to account for over 70% of displays used in smartwatches in 2015 largely due to Apple's move to incorporate the technology in the Apple Watch.
Shipments for microdisplays that use LCoS and AMOLED technologies are also on the rise as headwear devices come down in pricing and are equipped with higher resolution, and because other vendors including Samsung Electronics and Sony move toward releasing new products in 2015.
The smartwatch market is expected to reach 20 million units in 2015, up 500% on year, with most units sized between 1.3- to 1.8-inch, added Digitimes Research.

Nice article with our own Jan Mahon from trusted Reviews--google topic
Seems we have a new basher Woodbridge Daily....Google - Zacks Rating Update On Universal Display Corporation. They have been posting this same up date every time OLED starts going up for months featuring Jeds $23 EPS target LOL Pretty Lame.
Really neat for all wishing for an OLED laptop
The Venue 10 7000 has a 10.5-inch OLED display with a gorgeous 2560 x 1600-pixel resolution, which beautifully shows off the bold colors and icons of Android 5 Lollipop

Under the hood
All Apple Watches have a new S1 processor made by Apple, that "Taptic" haptic engine and a force-sensitive and very bright OLED display, which is differently sized on the 38mm and 42mm models. The watch has its own accelerometer, gyrometer and heart-rate monitor, but no onboard GPS. It uses Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz Wi-Fi to connect to your phone or your home network. There's a built-in speaker and microphone, but no headphone jack.

LG Display is planning to raise the yield of its ultra HD OLED panel production facilities to 80 percent within this year. The company is currently recording a yield of 80 to 90 percent in full HD OLED panel production. In the meantime, Samsung Display is reshaping its OLED R&D organization for the development and commercialization of applied products such as OLED TVs. To this end, Samsung Display split its LCD and OLED business units from each other on April 1.
The two companies’ business strategies were unveiled at the first OLED Korea Conference held on April 2 at the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies in Yeoksam#$%$, Seoul.
“We are going to produce at least 600,000 units of OLED TVs, and increase the volume to 1.5 million next year to account for 1 percent of the global TV market,” LG Display explained at the conference hosted by market research firm UBI research. “We think that AMOLED must evolve to achieve different values in the form of flexible, bendable, mirror, and transparent displays,” said Samsung Display Managing Director Lee Ki-yong, adding, “We are expecting that our recently reinstated OLED division will facilitate our research and development efforts for the purpose.”

Have you tried reporting abuse for harassment it's Right under the ITU? I do every day for the last couple years with no results, WAKE UP YAHOO whats the sense of even having this tool??? YOUR CREDIBILITY IS ZILCH especially when misrepresenting Universal Display Corp.stock information !!!
It's quite obvious that Yahoo does not monitor this message board (or maybe they do as fusionary1 suggests).
They sure don't monitor the abuse reports, or maybe they do and have paid bashers as suggested in another post. Hey Yahoo wake up!!!

Architectures and criteria for the design of high efficiency organic photovoltaic cells
A method for fabricating an organic photovoltaic cell includes providing a first electrode; depositing a series of at least seven layers onto the first electrode, each layer consisting essentially of a different organic semiconductor material, the organic semiconductor material of at least an intermediate layer of the sequence being a photoconductive material; and depositing a second electrode onto the sequence of at least seven layers. One of the first electrode and the second electrode is an anode and the other is a cathode. The organic semiconductor materials of the series of at least seven layers are arranged to provide a sequence of decreasing lowest unoccupied molecular orbitals (LUMOs) and a sequence of decreasing highest occupied molecular orbitals (HOMOs) across the series from the anode to the cathode.

Samsung Display Resumes Their ‘White OLED’ TV Investment ...(google)

D From OLED-info 3/24
"The report suggests that LG Display struggles with production yields, and Apple only accepts around 30-40% of the screens produced by LGD. Apple planned to produce about 2.5-3 million Watch devices each month, and this has been scaled back to 1.25-1.5 million devices.
Some earlier reports suggested that Apple is in talks with SDC to supply displays for the next-gen Watch. If these current reports, it's likely that Apple will need Samsung more than ever. This may also cause Apple to help expedite Foxconn's rumored OLED fab"
(note report suggests).
SDC has no issues with FOLED yields so that guy is wrong about the Galaxy S6 Edge
Also benzinga this zinger today google..... Checking In With An iPhone 7 Supplier
States ...In a report published Wednesday, JP Morgan analyst Narci Chang commented on Japan Display –- a possible supplier to Apple Inc. AAPL 0.43%'s iPhone 7 device.
According to Chang, Japan Display's new fab, backed by Apple's prepayment, will increase its total capacity by 20 percent. The new fab is enough to produce approximately 95 million units of five-inch smartphones annually and the new Apple fab is expected to ramp up in fiscal 2016.
The analyst continued that this should serve as evidence that Apple will increase allocation to Japan Display and adopt LCD LTPS for an iPhone 7 device, contrary to market speculation about adopting OLED panels.
"Never heard of TADF until seeking alpha article by eseklaesekla(who i think is pretty on top of it). any thoughts? real threat? distant threat?"
esekla Is a newbie who would have you believe he is an expert in the OLED field He also gets paid for his
posts on seeking alpha and is pretty lose with his opinions (*Frenemy*)
TADF is in the R&D phase as of yet no hard Data on or if it's close to commercialization
As esekia points out there are several players Novaled who has an agreement and has been working with
UDC for years Yes they were bought by Samsung who licensed UDCs OLED till 2017 He also said
"It's important to recognize that this hasn't happened yet. At the very worst, it will take years to bring TADFs from the lab to factory; it might never happen, much like the polymer emitters pursued by the Japanese, "
Also Researchers from Kyushu University (led by Chihaya Adachi) is Working on (Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence) emitter Universal Display also maintains a strong relationship with Dr. Adachi
The University of Michigan is working on metal-free phosphorescent OLED emitters
Not worried here
