Universal Display demos transparent OLED

Universal Display (UDC) today announced the development of the world's first high-resolution active-matrix transparent OLED (AM-TOLED) display.

According to UDC, the device is a step toward the creation of -motion video displays that provide transparency when turned off. Such displays one day could be used in applications such as architectural vision glass, entertainment, medical and industrial products, helmet shields for military, homeland security, as well as fire and rescue.

UDC's monochrome prototype display offers a resolution of 120 x 160 pixels (QQVGA) at 200 dpi. The company did not say when such transparent displays could be commercially available. (THG)
