The Future of TV is OLED and LG is Leading the Pack

Posted on January 3, 2012 by

We may have just rung-in 2012 but LG is wasting no time this year with the announcement of the “World’s Largest OLED TV.” At 55″and with unparalleled organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology, which utilizes “the company’s 4-Color Pixels and Color Refiner features,” you can consider this a steal compared to previous OLED’s.  These features allow LG to bring the price down to an estimated $5000, which comes-in at a “significantly lower cost than what could be achieved using existing OLED manufacturing technologies” said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company.

LG’s OLED TV boasts an astounding 4mm thinness (about .016 inches) and weighs only 7.5 kg (16.5 lbs).  The TV’s clarity and sharpness are unparalleled, even in a dark environment due to it’s infinite contrast ratio.  The TV is also up to 1,000 times faster in image processing than LED and LCD displays.

LG will be putting their new OLED tech on display at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) from January 10-13 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and World Trade Center (LVCC)/Las Vegas Hilton in Las Vegas, Nevada.  With over 48,000 exhibitors in 2011, this year’s CES is sure to not dissapoint.  Find out more about CES here.

    I've been saying OLED is the future of television for 3 years! 3D was a rehashing of 20+ years ago and a big waste of money for television manufacturers — especially since it's still something the consumer clearly does not want.

    That’s a smart way of thinknig about it.
