> Sony just announced they are discontinuing OLED production, which I assume applies to professional monitors.

To clarify before this rumour gets out of control, it has nothing to do with the professional OLED displays produced by the professional division Sony.

Sony continues to develop professional OLED panels and technologies and sells many thousand units per year.

This coverage comes from speculation reported in the Nikkei Asian Review stating that Sony is putting OLED consumer television development on ice.

The consumer television market is totally different and is in the many many million units per year. Consumers want larger and higher resolution displays, when you look at the market penetration the initial OLED TV's have had with their comparatively very high price points I think that it makes sense financially to be focusing the high end of consumer TV's on 4K LCD at the moment.

Disclaimer: I have no specific insight into the consumer TV segment and my comments represent my personal thoughts, but I can confidently state that the professional display division remains committed to OLED technology, production and development.
