Our next subject is a technology that is changing the way we watch our media. The OLED panel uses cutting edge technology; physically changing the way the image is produced. First off, lets get to what it stands for. OLED is an Organic Light Emitting Diode. We are all familiar with the Light Emitting Diode part of the new TV (LED) but what makes the pixel organic? In fact, how is the word “organic” being used to describe the TV? To describe OLED, we must mention “LED” panels. While the backlighting is LED, the front panel is still an LCD screen. Panel manufacturers then put sub-panels between these two pieces, giving you features like HDR. For this reason, LED TV’s will always be thicker, with a more pronounced physical form. High end LED TV’s will have a full-array of LED’s, giving that TV the ability to shut off certain zones creating a more dynamic contrast, and greater color. Motion rate will be a blog all on its own! The OLED TV is built in a completely different way. It uses special coatings of organic compounds that are arranged in such a way that so when an electric current is sent through it, it illuminates. In order to create black levels, those pixels simply shut off. Because of these features, Plasma TV lovers, look no further! The color, contrast and motion rate (and everything in-between) is truly a sight to be seen. Come by our showroom to experience the latest and greatest audio/video technology available!
