Mitsubishi's OLED TV is Huge at 155 Inches

During CEATEC 2009 in Japan, Mitsubishi whipped out a mega-sized 155-inch Diamond Vision OLED TV, revealing that the new big screen of awesomeness would be ideal for outdoor applications to make advertising more visible and attractive.

But unlike OLED TV's cranked out by rivals Samsung and Sony, Mitsubishi's new TV consists of hundreds of OLEDs with a 3-mm pitch as pixels. Ultimately, this type of setup could "potentially" create TVs of any size, however there are still problems with the technology that prevents it from being accepted as ideal, especially for advertisers.

As TechRadar points out, LED screens work in the same manner as OLED screens, but apparently OLEDs can output a higher overall resolution perception due to the way that they are arranged. Unfortunately, the typical lifespan of an OLED still remains around 20,000 hours: that's about two and a half years of normal, everyday use.

Still, we'd like to see this visionary 155-inch beast pushed up against our living room wall and hooked up to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, or Nintendo Wii. However, Mitsubishi's Nobuo Terazaki, who showcased the upcoming OLED TV, didn't offer any reference to availability or pricing.
