Samsung Electronics Co Ltd exhibited a prototype of a 19-inch TV equipped with an OLED panel made by using a printing method.

The TV features an active matrix OLED panel that the company claims is made by using an "inkjet method." Its pixel count is 960 x 540, which is about quarter that of full HD.

The resolution and luminance of the panel are 58ppi and 200cd/m2, respectively. It can display 16.77 million colors with an 8-bit color scale. And it has a 62% color gamut.

When asked about the commercialization of the TV, Samsung declined to comment, saying, "The technology is still under development."

Seiko Epson Corp announced a 14-inch OLED panel made by using an inkjet method in May 2009. Its resolution was 60ppi with a 6-bit color scale, and its luminance was 100cd/m2.
