TOKYO — Seiko Epson, a leading inkjet printer maker, said Tuesday it has developed the world's largest organic electro-luminescence display, which produces clear images while requiring little power.

"The company has developed an original inkjet process for depositing organic layers on large-size (thin film transistor) substrates," Seiko Epson Corp. said in a statement.

"Using this technology, Epson has now developed the world's largest, 40-inch diagonal, full-color (organic electro-luminescence) display prototype," the company said.

Seiko Epson plans to start selling products using the technology in 2007.

Organic electro-luminescence displays uses organic layers to illuminate themselves and consume less power than liquid crystal displays.

The displays offer high contrasts, wide viewing angles and fast response times – characteristics required for the next-generation lightweight displays, the company said. – Sapa-AFP
