Japan's Canon Inc. said it would start making organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays in 2006 as part of a plan to bring more production of key parts in-house and lower procurement costs.

Canon president Fujio Mitarai said the company planned to use OLED displays in its own digital cameras, camcorders, and printers as early as the second half of 2006, replacing liquid crystal displays (LCD). It had already produced a prototype.

"We won't make these for sale to other companies. We use about 20 million (displays each year) on our own so that's a big enough cost savings right there," Mr. Mitarai said.

Canon also plans to enter the market for rear projection televisions, which use a LCD device in the back of the screen to project an image onto a large plastic screen. These TVs will address the market for sets more than 60 in and use technology from its LCD projectors. (Reuters)
