  • Any news on LED touchscreens

    Just wondering if there's any word on LED Touchscreens in the horizon. The image they produce are beyond beautiful and i'm salivating at the thought of putting one in my car....

    if you found links to any sites, please share...

    thanks

      Lilliput and Xenarc monitors are LED backlit. or Perhaps I am misunderstanding exactly what you are looking for.

        i think he is looking for a LED display, instead of a led backlight display--like those new, really thin flat screens from samsung.

        like this:
        http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/d...UN55B8000XFXZA

        i think it is going to take a while for that technology to trickle down to smaller screens.

          Correct me if I'm wrong, but even those Samsungs are still just led backlit LCDs..

            you caught me getting all mixed up in their marketing lingo!

            here is where i found the real info on the screen:
            http://hdguru.com/samsung-un46b8000-...st-review/429/

            even samsungs site says nothing of it just being a very thin lcd screen w/ led backlight...

              im guessing the op is talking about OLED. thats the technology that can be 3mm thick, and produce its own light without any backlight at all.

              sony has one, and it wont be that many more years before they start making them in mass on large scales. but i too can't wait for 7" oled screens... they will be BETTER then perfect for our car pc's.....

              furthermore, oled will come in the form of flimsy clear stickers, that you can attatch to your windsheild (or they will be built in) and create heads-up displays.

              oled will completely change how we build our carpcs... monitors will be able to pop out of air vents... or, anywhere.

                We have a two part video on this coming out within the next week. Last year we did a quick movie on oled here: http://www.mp3car.com/index.php/123-...-and-demo.html

                Check our blog in a few days for the two part oled series. The filiming has finished and it is being edited as I write this.

                  samsung's technology is LED and not LCD with a backlit. They are a lot thinner, brighter and consume less power than LCD's... On a side note, didn't Sony buy Samsung?

                  The link Lordkat provides is for LED backlit. Although interesting and probably nicer than my regular LCD - that's not the same as the Samsung or the Sony, IMO. These new TV's are gonna change TV technology (once again).

                  I do agree that it may be some time before we see 7" and 8" screens on the market but i hope i'm wrong. In addition, it would be nice if they made them HDMI ready with 2 ports minimum. Why not?

                    Dude...Samsung's LED TV are BS...they are just lcd tv's with led backlight....they have lots of leds that they can dynamically control to produce a dynamic contrast ratio that again is BS...

                    I've seen a 9" 1080p OLED in a sony store...breath taking...

                    I challenge you to prove , by link, otherwise...

                      thanks for the info... what a shocker - especially to uninformed consumers... i truly thought it was OLED - the same as the sony 9" you speak of which by the way - i also have seen and it is breathtaking...

                      I still don't understand - how they manage to make the TV much thinner than a regular LCD?

                      I should've titled this thread "OLED TV's" as it is more appropriate to the question at hand.

                        Well I've been reading on these samsung tv's , apparently the leds are edge mounted, and the light is channeled to the back of the panel...the picture is great, but there is light uniformity issues...

                        True OLED at these sizes is few years away, but it will truly be the next revolutionary step in display quality..

                            if you could get an LED down to the size of 1/3 pixel, and still have it bright enough to produce 300nits overall, led would be great... you see them at stadiums everywhere, they use thousands of regular LED bulbs in a grid to produce an amazing image on a huge scale.... but for small scale like a 50" tv at 1080p resolution, its just not possible to make led's that small and bright. thats why we use liquid crystal, so each 1/3 pixel is just an on/off window that can be as small as we want.. and the ccfl or led backlight is what makes the screen light up.

                            thats only part of the reason OLED will be huge though. the transparency and flexibility is going to change the whole game. to think, i just built my own rolldown 110" hd projector screen... and if this screen was made out of OLED i wouldnt even need the projector, the screen material itself would BE the display.. and the electronic guts would just be fitted into the roll bar on top.
