What is OLED?

What is OLED?

A screen is not only distinguished by its size and shape, but also by the technology of its panel. One of these technologies is the OLED . But do you know what it is or what it is? We'll tell you.

OLED stands for Organic Emission Diode Light, in Spanish. As its name indicates, this technology is based on organic diodes that emit light when applying electric current without the need for an additional light source, this being its main feature.

This technology began its development around 1970, but it has not been until this last decade when we have seen a multitude of devices that apply OLED technology or some of its variants for their screens.

Specifically, it is a very thin film of organic components that, on contact with an electrical stimulation, light up in one or another color. Each of these diodes is a pixel, and as they light up together they shape the image images.

One of the most important features of OLED technology is that it has a flexible structure, allowing future folding screens to be created on all types of surfaces.

In addition, thanks to being able to generate their own light it is possible to get all black pixels, simply turning off, thus achieving images more contrasted and with greater depth of color.

To top it off, OLED televisions offer a better viewing angle without losing quality from any position, and the response time is reduced to 0.002 milliseconds almost completely eliminated blurry images and so dreaded ghosting effect in action or sports scenes , So common in many LED LCD TVs.
It also offers a lower power consumption and allows you to create much thinner and lighter, but also more fragile, TVs.

But not everything would be advantages. Today OLED technology is still very expensive to implement, especially when compared to traditional LED LCDs, which means that the final price of LED TVs is much higher than these.

In addition, the size of the current OLED TVs part of the 55 inches, which can be a drawback not only for the pocket, also for those who have little space at home.


Currently, the leading manufacturer of OLED panels is the Korean company LG that even supplies these types of screens to other manufacturers to use them as a starting point for their new TVs.
In addition, OLED technology not only applies to televisions, it is also possible to find variants of the same in smartphones as AMOLED, Super AMOLED, AMOLED Plus or P-OLED.
