What is OLED TV?
It seems that many of our clients are now upgrading their TV’s and are confronted with new technical terms in trying to decide what is best for their needs and budget. Many wonder if the newest, greatest technological advancements are here to stay. Remember the year of the 3-D TV? In my opinion, one of the newer advancements is here to stay, OLED TV’s. OLED is short for Organic Light-Emitting Diode. OLED differs from LCD in that with the OLED, each diode emits it’s own light and doesn’t require a backlight. The self-emitting OLED diodes allow each diode to be turned on and off individually, which results in a much deeper blacks, and greater contrast, as it doesn’t affect neighboring pixels. Other advantages of OLED TV’s are they are lighter, thinner, and eco-friendly. OLED also offers greater viewer angles, 90 degree without any picture loss. The disadvantages of OLED are size and price. The smallest available OLED TV is 55”. The top of the line Sony 55” OLED TV is $2,799.
