Mitsubishi Electric installs 6-metre diameter OLED globe at science museum

Mitsubishi Electric announced today that it has installed a six-metre diameter organic light-emitting display (OLED) globe at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo, Japan. The OLED "Geo-Cosmos" display will be unveiled at the museum as the world's first large-scale spherical OLED screen on June 11th.

Hanging 18 metres from the floor, the globe is an aluminium sphere covered with 10,362 OLED panels, each measuring 96 x 96 millimetres. Mitsubishi Electric used its scalable OLED technologies to create the globe, which replaces a previous globe comprised of light emitting diodes (LEDs), to commemorate the museum's 10th anniversary. The globe will display scenes of clouds and other visions of the earth taken from a meteorological satellite. The display delivers a resolution of more than 10 million pixels, about 10 times greater than that of the LED display.
In addition to Mitsubishi Electric, which created the OLED system, three other companies helped to make the OLED Geo-Cosmos display: Dentsu Inc. undertook project planning, Go and Partners, Inc. developed the image-processing and transmission system, and GK Tech Inc. created the spheroid design. Mitsubishi Electric's Diamond Vision OLED system is the world's only scalable OLED display technology, affording the company a unique market position in the supply of non-linear display applications worldwide.
