OLED TV is the next evolution in the story of the TV. They add an O (organic) to your state of the art LED TV. OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) technology is an advanced display technology that enables televisions to be thinner, lighter, more energy efficient and deliver brighter and crispier pictures.
Where to Buy OLED TVs
One remarkable difference between current generation LCD/LED TVs and OLED TVs is that while the former requires backlight, OLED emits light naturally, requiring no backlight. The first obvious result of this is that an OLED TV is thinner than an LED TV since the space that the backlit element would occupy is saved. For the same reason OLED TVs are flexible, lighter and consume less power.
Another result is that OLED television offers better contrast because it can deliver deeper blacks that current LCD and LED TV. The LG 55-inch OLED TV offers an outstanding 100,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The colour is also reproduced better on an OLED TV. OLED uses organic compounds that emit light when electric current passes through them.
OLED TV is also available with curved display. Curved OLED TV offers a more immersive viewing experience and are simply cool. LG showcased 77-inch Flexible OLED TV that can be switched from Flat screen to Curved screen through the remote at CES 2014.
