The Benefits of OLED TVs

The Benefits of OLED TVs

If you thought high definition television was the final step in the technological evolution of home viewing, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. OLED TV, or Organic Light-Emitting Diode televisions, aren’t exactly brand new. They first appeared on the market in 2013 and OLED screens have been popular in phones for a few years now. However, thanks to improvements in production OLED TVs are being offered by more companies and at more affordable prices than ever before. OLEDs are poised to become the future of home viewing.

So what makes OLED displays different than LCD and LEDs? They contain a thin carbon-based film that is sandwiched between two conductors. When electricity passes through it, it emits light. Because each pixel emits its own light and there’s no backlighting necessary, these TVs have some real advantages over previous screen technologies. Not only do you get a better picture quality, you get a more eco-friendly TV with superior design elements.

Better Picture Quality

Because every pixel emits its own light, you don’t have dark pixels still being lit from behind as you do with traditional display technologies. OLED pixels can remain completely dark, emitting no light, which creates blacks on your screen that are true, deep black.

While traditional displays rely on red, green and blue light to create images, OLEDs add an additional white light to create even more colors. This makes for images that are richer, more varied and truer to real life. If you’re serious about having the best image quality, OLED can really deliver. When OLED is combined with HDR, or High Dynamic Range, the resulting images are out of this world.

Efficient and Eco-Friendly

Because pixels in an OLED display can remain completely dark, they only use energy to emit light when it’s absolutely necessary. That’s a lot more efficient than having backlight even on dark pixels like traditional displays. By using less energy, OLED TVs are more environmentally friendly than their backlit counterparts.

Ultra Thin, Light and Flexible

The days of big, boxy television may be far behind us, but OLED raises television design to the next level. Right now you can buy an OLED TV that’s less than 3 mm (less than 3/32 inch) thick and displays less than 1 mm have already been showcased.

These screens are also flexible, and companies have been experimenting with TV screens that can be rolled up. They aren’t available to mass consumers yet, but flexible screen TVs seem likely to make their appearance in the next few years.

Superior display quality, exciting design and better energy efficiency are a few of the main benefits of choosing an OLED TV. If you take home viewing seriously, it’s a great investment in your viewing experience.
