Screen Stars: Rosen Launches OLED Displays

The complete line of OLED displays from aircraft cabin electronics company, Rosen Aviation, is now available for pre-order.

This announcement comes almost 12 months after the company formalized its partnership with Japan-OLED (JOLED), building on its partnership with LG Displays for large-format panels.

The product range features ultra-thin and lightweight displays ranging from 22in to 55in. with the company’s partnerships allowing access to OLED Basic Modules (OBMs), meaning it can offer aircraft-grade components specifically designed for business, VIP and commercial cabins. All the displays feature 4K UHD resolution, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) with what the company describes as “almost infinite” contrast ratios.

Rosen is currently developing applications leveraging OLED technology that it claims have never before been implemented in aviation, and plans to announce further developments in early 2022. The new product line also features 4K UHD LCD displays ranging from 24in to 43in.

Lee Clark, SVP of strategy at the Oregon-headquartered company stated, “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. 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 the AEA aviation avionics show in Dallas in June 2021, and reported that they garnered “impressive feedback” from visitors. The company also says it uses techniques in the panel construction that can “dramatically” extend panel life and further improve reliability. Rosen claims the fleetwide average for all its products currently in-service is more than 100,000 hours Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF).
