Sony XEL-1 OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) 11 inch television receiver, manufactured by Sony, Japan, 2008.
The Sony XEL-1 was the first OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) television. OLED screens don't require a backlight, meaning that they can be thinner and lighter than standard LCD screens. When it was released, it was also the world's thinnest television, at just 3mm thick. It came with a non-removable stand in order to house the buttons and input/output ports needed, as these could not be fitted into the screen itself. Production of the Sony XEL-1 ended in 2010.
