why is this important?
  • Because the OLED (organic light emitting diode) film is extremely efficient.

  • Because printing roll to roll makes OLEDs far easier to mass produce, and thus cheaper.

  • Because OLEDs can be used in a huge variety of lighting applications, moving the world beyond lightbulbs and into a whole new paradigm of lighting.
