View Full Version : What exactly is OLED?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An organic light-emitting diode (OLED), also Light Emitting Polymer (LEP) and Organic Electro-Luminescence (OEL), is any light-emitting diode (LED) whose emissive electroluminescent layer is composed of a film of organic compounds. The layer usually contains a polymer substance that allows suitable organic compounds to be deposited. They are deposited in rows and columns onto a flat carrier by a simple "printing" process. The resulting matrix of pixels can emit light of different colors.
Such systems can be used in television screens, computer displays, portable system screens, advertising, information and indication. OLEDs can also be used in light sources for general space illumination, and large-area light-emitting elements. OLEDs typically emit less light per area than inorganic solid-state based LEDs which are usually designed for use as point-light sources.
A significant benefit of OLED displays over traditional liquid crystal displays (LCDs) is that OLEDs do not require a backlight to function. Thus they draw far less power and, when powered from a battery, can operate longer on the same charge. Because there is no need to distribute the backlight, an OLED display can also be much thinner than an LCD panel. OLED-based display devices also can be more effectively manufactured than LCDs and plasma displays. But degradation of OLED materials has limited the use of these materials.
With this technology will come many exciting new products such as thin TV's, flexible monitors, transparent displays, etc.

From MSNBC (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22399288/):

Here’s what you will say when you see this Sony OLED TV (there are only 2,000 in the world, most of them in Japan): “Oh, my.”

The picture is stunning. Absolutely amazing. There are no superlatives that can do the thing justice. It’s not TV. It’s a window. Or a looking-glass. The clarity of the image on this new kind of television is difficult to describe, unless you’ve seen one.

Remember, even with existing technology, or any technology for that matter, the test of a truly great picture is tied to an idea called “contrast ratio,” which is just a fancy way to say, “There is a big difference between the lightest and darkest colors.”

As a rule, the greater the contrast ratio, the more vivid a picture looks. Many good plasma TVs out there have a contrast ratio of about 10,000 to 1, meaning the blacks are 10,000 times darker than the whites. With the new Sony XEL-1 OLED TV, the contrast ratio is 1,000,000 to 1. That’s 100 times better. The ratio would actually be higher, but no instruments exist that can measure such a big difference.

Nice Design!

Looks like the super-model (ie. ultra-skinny) version of LCD. :)

This is great news for gamers and TV fanatics which only worry about graphics and Ratio....don't tell me the price thou..:lol:
