Why QLED Is Seen As Be­ing Su­pe­rior to OLED

Sam­sung is one of those Com­pa­nies that has grown by in­vest­ing bil­lions into prod­uct and con­sumer be­hav­iour re­search, they are also a Com­pany who has been a ma­jor con­trib­u­tor to push­ing the TV devel­op­ment bound­aries dur­ing the past decade.

Now they are push­ing the bound­ary out fur­ther with their third gen­er­a­tion QLED TV tech­nol­ogy re­sult­ing in a head on bat­tle with OLED.

QLED is quan­tum dot tech­nol­ogy on an LED panel i.e., Quan­tum dot + LED = QLED. It’s a su­pe­rior tech­nol­ogy that de­liv­ers sev­eral ad­van­tages over OLED.

Sam­sung’s third gen­er­a­tion QLED tech­nol­ogy is built around a film layer of quan­tum dots, that sit at the front of a reg­u­lar LED back­light panel. The layer is made up of tiny par­ti­cles each of which emits its own in­di­vid­ual colours depend­ing on the size which is of­ten be­tween 2 and 10 nanome­tres.

The size of the par­ti­cle dic­tates and con­trols the wave­length of light that it emits, hence the dif­fer­ent colours.

By us­ing quan­tum dot tech­nol­ogy Sam­sung QLED TV’s can de­liver over a bil­lion colour op­tions.

With this gen­er­a­tion Sam­sung has changed the struc­ture of their TV tech­nol­ogy to in­clude a new me­tal al­loy core and new me­tal al­loy shell. This en­hance­ment has en­abled greater colour ac­cu­racy but also en­ables that colour ac­cu­racy at higher peak bright­ness.

The change in name to QLED over SUHD is sim­ply an evo­lu­tion of the TV tech­nol­ogy that Sam­sung is de­vel­op­ing.

Sam­sung’s abil­ity to pro­duce colours with higher bright­ness al­lows them to also de­liver greater colour vol­ume than ever be­fore re­sult­ing in QLED out­per­form­ing the abil­i­ties of OLED ac­cord­ing to sev­eral ob­servers of the bat­tle be­tween QLED and OLED.

It’s able to pre­serve colours in peak bright­ness ar­eas that OLED can’t and those peak bright­ness ar­eas are also higher than OLED can cur­rently achieve.

The re­sult is that QLED gives you a lot more vis­i­ble colour, it’s bet­ter suited for vi­brant de­liv­ery of HDR con­tent while also de­liv­er­ing the vis­ual ex­pe­ri­ence that Hol­ly­wood studios and movie direc­tor want in a fi­nal prod­uct.
