My limited knowledge (and I say limited) is that Active Matrix relates to the use of transistors for pixel switching rather than capacitance. The TFT sets the state of the pixel. With LCD's as soon as the TFT loses its charge the LCD pixel reverts to its natural position - but these guys are using organic materials - maybe they hold their position after the TFT lets go, leaving only a power requirement to change the state of the pixel. That sounds familiar??

Or i could be completely wrong...!
