JOLED partners with Rosen Aviation to enhance the passenger experience with high-performance OLEDs
JOLED Inc. (headquartered in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan), an OLED expert and manufacturer of 4K OLED by printing technology, and Rosen Aviation LLC (headquartered in Eugene, Oregon, U.S.A.), a specialists in aviation display technology, have announced a partnership to advance the passenger viewing experience.
JOLED and Rosen will collaborate on the development and integration of medium sized OLED displays into aircraft interiors. The two companies will leverage their respective technologies and expertise to maximise functionality and attractiveness of OLEDs in the cabin environment.
OLEDs are the display technology of the next-generation, offering benefits that industry has never experienced, such as super-thin panels, reduced weight, wide viewing angles, enhanced colours, high resolution, and nearly infinite contrast ratios.
Naoto Hikichi, executive officer, head of business division I at JOLED explains: “We are so excited about the partnership and collaboration with Rosen to develop and integrate OLED displays into the aircraft cabin. As we manufacture medium sized high resolution OLED displays, we think the cabin display is a very interesting and adapted application for us. Rosen and JOLED will investigate and develop a completely awesome and first-in-class display, which will fit to every kind of new well-being scenarios the passengers will live, feel, see and enjoy in the future aircraft.”
Lee Clark, senior vice-president strategy at Rosen Aviation declared: “New display and sensor technologies are set to radically change the passenger experience and as a consequence aircraft interiors. Versatility and personalisation of displays will be key for facilitating different onboard activities. By combining our expertise, JOLED and Rosen will develop innovative displays adapted to different use cases that enhance the passenger experience. By leveraging our vast experience, we can ensure safety, quality, and the seamless integration of displays into the aircraft cabin.”
During 2019 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, Rosen and JOLED revealed a first illustration of their capabilities by showcasing a world premiere 22-inch 4K OLED display. At AIX 2021, scheduled in April 2021 in Germany, Rosen will launch new OLED displays in a variety of sizes.
