In every industry, there is always a “next big thing” or “a new rage”. In the TV arena, these labels are ascribed to the OLED TV. The all too recent history of the TV world saw technologies in the likes of 3D, Smart TVs, and Ultra HD 4K resolution TVs but all of these TVs fall under one spectrum – the realm of LED TVs.
The differences between LED TVs and OLED TVs go far beyond just one extra letter. Unlike the Quantum Dot Display, which simply improved on LCD displays and LED Backlighting, the OLED TV is a totally new technology with a different ratings in the three key elements that we look for in a flat screen TV – design, energy efficiency and of course, performance.
What exactly is an OLED TV?
OLED panels have been more frequently seen on smaller screens – mobile phones, tablets and digital cameras – but today, the OLED panel has gotten a generous amount of buzz for big screen TVs. So what is it, really?
Dubbed as the “most important advancement in TV technology in more than a decade”, OLED, or organic light emitting diode works by using a certain layer of materials that emit light due to an electric current which becomes the source of light for green, red and blue light. These colors then produce a TV image. It may sound simple enough but when you think about it, no other TV technology uses the same process to create light directly.
What are the benefits of getting an OLED TV?
This new technology allows for OLED TVs to be even thinner, more efficient, lighter, and produce a higher quality of performance than any other television technology in the market today. Another thing that sets it apart from other televisions today is its ability to shut off each pixel to produce pitch black. So, what are the benefits of having an OLED TV? It has an infinite contrast ratio, it’s ridiculously thin, and its efficient in energy consumption.
