What IS OLED anyway?

That’s a great question. The answer can be pretty long with explanations of primary layers and functions, but this one will be a condensed, quick read.

First of all, OLED is an acronym for Organic Light Emitting Diodes. The technology is actually not new—OLED was invented by Oleg Losev in 1927. Then in the 1970s the first OLED diode was created at Kodak by Ching Tang and Steven Van Slyke. In 1987 this team reported on materials that created the foundation of today’s OLED technology. OLED has continued to be developed to this day.

Organic means something that is constituted of Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen. An Organic Light-emitting Diode is an LED in which the emissive electroluminescent layer is a film of organic compound that emits light in response to an electric current.

The huge benefit of OLED is that it does not require a backlight unit so there is no light leakage, and lower power consumption; it does not require a liquid crystal layer and shutter array so it can provide a wide viewing angle and faster response time; and it is a simple structure with fewer components, allowing for a thin, sleek and lightweight design where the screens can be curved and bendable.

And there’s one more big benefit. LG uses a fourth white sub-pixel for WRGB capability. This gives the LG OLED product better contrast, color and brightness.

LG’s OLED display technology overcomes the limits of the current displays in both picture quality and design. In short, nothing compares to it.

Why you should have OLED in your next display

Your brand deserves the best, in the same way you deliver the best to your customers. With LG OLED you can now create content delivery displays and sculpt customer environments that were never before possible—where engagement turns into astonishment and your pride turns into a badge of recognition that your business truly stands out from the crowd.
