Scott Wilkinson, Home Theater HiFi

Episode 951 (29:35)

While last week was the Super Bowl, it was also the biggest TV shopping week of the year as people went out to get a big screen TV to watch the big game. People were looking at plasmas and LED LCDs. Leo's also in the market to upgrade his TV. Should he wait for OLED? Scott says that a 55" OLED will premiere in the US market in March for $12,000! The cost should come down, but the yields are notoriously small with high failure rates. That's why OLED TVs are expensive right now. But over time, Leo says it'll get better. The same thing happened with LCDs.

Monday on HTG, Scott will have Carl Lang, a color scientist who has invented a new way to measure color output on TVs to calibrate them.
