Let’s break it down. OLED = organic light-emitting diode. Still scratching your head? How does OLED work? What is a diode anyway?
Diodes are small organic compounds, each the size of an individual TV pixel
Each diode will light up as a specific color when fed electricity
Since each diode lights up independently, it can do something no other TV technology can – achieve the perfect black
Does achieving the perfect black matter that much? HDTV already looks pretty awesome. It does indeed matter, and here’s why: Contrast Ratio.
What is contrast ratio?
When it comes to TVs, contrast ratio is said to be the key indicator for measuring picture quality
Colors look best against a pure black background
Since OLED is the ONLY TV technology that can achieve true black, the colors on an OLED screen will look more vibrant, intense and detailed than every before
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?
Even thinner TVs – The technology behind OLED allows designs that are even thinner than the thinnest TVs on the market. This ultra-thin look makes for an elegant addition to your living room, or a superior wall-mount.
Wider viewing angles than ever before – You’ll get exceptional picture quality no matter where you are sitting in the room. And, OLED is available in flat and curved models.
What sets OLED apart from other TV displays?
What is an OLED display?
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.
You’ll be amazed the first time you set your eyes on an OLED TV. What is it about an OLED display that makes it such a great picture?
Thin Screens: It’s lighter, thinner and more energy efficient than any other TV on the market
Wide Angles: While LED TVs get dimmer as you move away from the center of the TV, OLED TVs offer wider and more consistent color, regardless of where you are seated in the room
Powerful Color: You see the deepest blacks, the whitest whites, true color and high contrast.
Fast response time: OLED offers the fastest response time of any TV technology in use today, offering virtually blur-free motion clarity and ultimate picture quality.
4K Compatible: OLED is available in 4K TVs. The combination of the OLED display and the increased pixels of a 4K TV make the OLED 4K TVs some of the best televisions in the market today.
OLED’s flat-panel, curved design makes it innovative and intriguing. To see the latest in TV technology and to shop for an OLED TV from your favorite brands, stop by your local hhgregg store or visit us online at hhgregg.com.
OLED TV Video Transcription
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.
