OLED TV

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

The pro­hib­i­tively ex­pen­sive pan­els have for long stopped OLED from be­com­ing a vi­able tech­nol­ogy for tele­vi­sions. But af­ter HD, LED and 3D tech­nolo­gies man­aged to leave their mark in the tele­vi­sion space, the new year will see OLED com­ing to the prime­time party.

The OLED (or­ganic light emit­ting diode) screen does not re­quire back­light­ing, re­sult­ing in bet­ter colours, a high con­trast ra­tio and deep lev­els of black. Plus, it prom­ises faster re­fresh rates, an ul­tra-slim panel and low power con­sump­tion. LG and Sam­sung are both plan­ning to show­case 55-inch OLED tele­vi­sion sets at CES 2012.

Apart from OLED, even 4k pan­els will be in­tro­duced. Leav­ing be­hind the 1920 x 1080 p res­o­lu­tion found on full HD TVS, the 4k panes will sup­port much sharper images with 3840 x 2160 res­o­lu­tions. There is a bright pos­si­bil­ity that these pan­els will only be an­nounced and will take its own sweet time to make it to the mar­ket. Other tele­vi­sion tech­nolo­gies that will con­tinue to evolve is glass­less 3D and Smart TVS.
