What is contrast ratio?
The other aspects of OLED that have enthusiasts excited is the incredible response time and the amazing flexibility that these individual diodes provide. This is great news for gamers and sports fans alike!
What else does OLED offer?
OLED stands for organic light-emitting diode. Many consider OLED a step ahead of 4K technology. Simply put, it is made up of organic pixels that light up when fed electricity, eliminating the need for lamps to produce light. Since each diode lights up independently, it is the ONLY TV technology that can display a true black, delivering the highest possible contrast ratio to make other colors boldly stand out like never before.
TV technology is ever-evolving, and OLED is a newer trend that is gaining steam. While LED TVs have dominated the market, 4K and OLED are entering the scene and providing even better picture quality. A 4K Ultra High Definition TV display has over 8 million individual pixels, and boasts a picture quality four times the resolution of 1080p. This yields exceptional color and stunning detail now available in televisions, DSLR Cameras, A/V receivers, media players, Blu-ray players and projectors.

If you’ve recently been in the market for a television, you've probably heard about OLED, a new type of TV from LG that is revolutionizing the industry. You've been told it's great, that the picture quality is unmatched and that it's the most important advancement in television technology in years.
But, what exactly is it?
OLED stands for organic light-emitting diode. These are small organic compounds each the size of an individual television pixel that will light up as a specific color when fed electricity. Because each diode can be lit independently, OLED televisions are able to do something no other TV technology can, achieve perfect black.
Why does that matter you ask? Well, when comes to TVs, contrast ratio is considered to be the key indicator for measuring picture quality. Colors look best against a pure black background and since this is the only television that can achieve true black, the colors on an OLED screen will look more vibrant, intense and detailed than ever before. The other aspects of OLED that have enthusiasts excited is the incredible response time and the amazing flexibility that these individual diodes provide, which is great news for gamers and sports fans. And the increased flexibility gives manufacturers like LG the ability to create even thinner TVs with wider viewing angles than ever before.
