My impression was "2019-2020" because this was the start of the one-year engineering timeline that typically accompanies prototype monitors where test displays gets put into tester hands (e.g. eSports players) for evaluation. I wouldn't base today's shopping decisions on this model just yet. It's on the cusp, but not "coming within weeks".

JOLED is actually a panel maker like AUO, they sell them to monitor manufacturers such as ASUS (which uses one of the JOLED panels in their ProArt monitors). So there's a manufacturer-filtering-down process that also occurs too.

I have been waiting for OLEDs to come to gaming monitors. My personal holy grail consists of the following.

Black Blacks
Low\No Motion Blur
Low Latency
120-240hz (Or more if possible)
1080p
24-26"

And if I can wish, I would like it to be for around $400 :P

I read they would be releasing their own monitor branded "Burning Core", but it might be an wrong rumour, I have no idea! Thanks for the info. This will be my dream monitor.

Perrhaps, if they're able to do that.

House branded gaming monitors have happened (e.g. Computer Upgrade King, Massdrop, etc)

Though for a bleeding edge tech like OLED, it's more probable that a third partner is brought in.

For example, eSports teams have often teamed up with Razer, ZOWIE BenQ, ASUS, etc.

It's theoretically possible it's a 3-way collaboration between Burning Core, JOLED, and a traditional gaming monitor manufacturer.

Wait, that's cool.

How hard is it to develop an in-house monitor?

I wonder what the process would be to purchase a bunch of 0.5ms panels & then find a company to supply the electronics / monitor frame / assembling.

It's possible to do it as a one-man operation -- that's what Zisworks did with 480Hz. Most readers of Blur Busters now know I was the first mainstream website to test true-480Hz!

Realistically, you need about three or four employees to reliably pull off a house-branded monitor using an outsourced manufacturer.

There are several manufacturers that will manufacture house branded monitors for you. Best Buy commonly does that for "Insignia" but you can pull off becoming a house-brand manufacturer with just a 500 unit or 1000 unit manufacturing run nowadays.

Really?

Because if we put together a batch of 500 27" monitors @ 240hz with 0.5ms panels, we could sell them.

Blur Busters branded gaming monitors? ;)

I've thought about it, but not this year.

Today, I'd be burning bridges with some manufacturers I currently have contracts for. I prefer not to compete with current active clients. I value the manufacturers I currently work with and I currently want to preserve my relationships with manufacturers.

However, I do provide monitor tuning services to multiple monitor manufacturers / AR / VR / screen makers
Now that said, if YOU decide to manufacture in-house gaming monitors -- contact me at mark@blurbusters.com when you have an engineering sample already built (that problem, I leave to you). I provide overdrive tuning services, strobe tuning services, custom motion test creation services, private monitor testing services. I currently help multiple manufacturers and have no objection to offering my services to helping anyone (whether be a tiny Zisworks or a really big company) as long as there's no conflicts with any specific term-exclusives I may or may not have ongoing at the time.
