As of now, the OSRAM Continental GmbH joint venture, set up by the two technology companies Continental and Osram, is up and running. Following the successful completion of all negotiations and the issuance of merger control approvals, the joint venture has been launched as planned in the second half of 2018.
Pixelligent Technologies (Baltimore, Maryland), a leading high-index advanced materials manufacturer, announced US$7.6M in new funding to help further drive product commercialisation and accelerate global customer adoption.
OLEDWorks, a leading manufacturer of OLED lighting panels, and BASF’s Coatings division (both from Germany) joined forces to develop the world’s brightest bendable OLED panels. The new product range named “Brite 3” enables an improved efficacy while still having the superb colour rendering and high brightness option. In addition to the new bendable version, completely new application spaces will be possible for luminaire makers and lighting designers. The Brite 3 portfolio, including a new round shape and the bendable version, have been introduced at the 2018 Light + Building exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany.
