A full range of OLED displays are now available to pre-order from Rosen Aviation. The company signed to formalise a partnership with Japan-OLED (JOLED) almost a year ago, and also works with LG Displays for large-format panels.
The displays are designed to be ultra-thin and light, and are available in sizes ranging from 22in to 55in.
Rosen’s partnerships allow access to OLED Basic Modules (OBMs), allowing it to design aircraft-grade components specifically for business, VIP and commercial aircraft cabins. All the displays feature 4K UHD resolution, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) with almost infinite contrast ratios.
Rosen is currently developing new applications leveraging OLED technology that it says have never been implemented in aviation environments. It plans to announce further developments early in 2022. The new product line also features 4K UHD LCD displays ranging from 24in to 43in.
“The entire team at Rosen was certainly excited to announce our partnership with JOLED late last year, but seeing the end result 12 months later is somewhat surreal,” said Lee Clark, senior vice president of strategy at Rosen Aviation. “These OLED displays are so thin and lightweight, and deliver a truly evolutionary picture quality that must be seen to be believed. Our design, engineering, product development and test groups have worked incredibly hard to create a world-class viewing experience.”
Rosen demonstrated early prototype units at AEA 2021. The company said it is able to employ techniques to dramatically extend panel life and further improve reliability. The fleet-wide average mean time between failures for all Rosen products currently in service is more than 100,000 hours.
