15:45 - 16:10
OLED lighting performance has improved rapidly, and based on phosphorescence, OLED lighting system efficiencies are now comparable with LED systems. OLEDs offer a truly unique lighting experience based on their large area, thin form factors and excellent light quality. While costs are currently still relatively high because of low production volumes, early entry products are proving very popular. The advent of flexible OLED lighting will lead to exciting new products, greatly increasing design freedom.
