Sanyo, Kodak liquidate OLED venture
The material has an advantage over standard LCDs in that backlighting is not required, thus reducing energy consumption. Kodak will first transfer its interest in the venture to Sanyo and then Sanyo will liquidate it. The intellectual property generated by SK Displays, however, will continue to exist and Kodak will continue to try to license it to other manufacturers.
