The latest LG OLED TV, the world’s largest at 55″ will be unveiled at CES 2012 in Las Vegas. LG Display has apparently discovered a less expensive way of producing OLED display panels. Previous OLED TV displays used Low Temperature Poly Silicon (LTPS), which uses amorphous silicon. The LG 55-inch TV is using a technology called Oxide Thin Film Transistor (TFT). LG stated that the Oxide TFT produces the same image quality of high performance LTPS but at a greatly reduced cost.
According to the press release, “The LG Display’s 55-inch OLED TV panel produces high image quality with no after image due to its high reaction velocity, as well as high contrast ratio of over 100,000:1 and wider colour gamut than that produced by LCD panels. LG Display uses White OLED (WOLED). WOLED vertically accumulates red, green, and blue diodes. With white colour light emitting from the diode, it displays screen information through colour layers below the TFT base panel. This leads to a lower error rate, higher productivity, and a clearer Ultra Definition screen via the benefits of small pixels.”
The LG OLED TV at 55″ is a major breakthrough in OLED TV technology and at only 5mm thick, will be a stunning piece of equipment. Make sure to check back in here during CES 2012 from January 10th to the 13th to get the latest LG OLED TV specs, videos, availability and pricing.
