Toyota Tsusho and JOLED Opens "JOLED Demonstration Room Shinagawa"
Aiming to propose uses and expand sales of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays
Toyota Tsusho Corporation ("Toyota Tsusho") and JOLED Inc. ("JOLED")--a company which develops, manufactures, and sells organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays--announce that they have jointly opened "JOLED Demonstration Room Shinagawa" which will be used for business negotiations and will be located in Toyota Tsusho's Tokyo head office. It will bring together JOLED's lineup of OLED display panel products and allow visitors to see and experience the features of OLED displays, such as thin profile and light weight, high contrast, wide viewing angle, and high-speed response.
JOLED is the only company in the world which manufactures OLED displays using a printing method*1 that allows efficient production (as of June 2020, based on JOLED's research). Operation of JOLED's mass production line and shipping of samples to customers started in end 2019. Shifting from the previous pilot line toward the new mass production line, JOLED plans to enhance and commercialize its product lineup of medium-size high-resolution OLED displays and is strengthening its proposals to customers.
Toyota Tsusho will use the wide network of its Group companies to propose uses and expand sales of OLED displays. Toyota Tsusho and JOLED will use JOLED Demonstration Room Shinagawa to encourage the introduction of OLED displays to interested companies and other parties.

*1 About printed OLED displays
Organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays are self-illuminating devices that deliver superb picture quality with high contrast, high color reproducibility, and fast response rate. It also combines advantages such as an ultra-thin profile, light weight, and flexibility. Owing to these characteristics, OLED is gaining attention as a next-generation display that will create new applications in a wide range of fields.
The printing method, which is one of the production methods for OLED display, applies and forms OLED materials by printing. With its simple production processes and the flexibility to cope with diverse screen sizes, the technology is expected to represent a major innovation in OLED display production. JOLED specializes in research and development of the printing method and was the first to achieve practical use ahead of other companies in 2017.
