What is OLED
OLED panels emit light when an electric current is passed through them, opposed to an LCD-LED display with requires an external light source.
This backlight is what separated LCD screens from their LED variants. A traditional LCD screen has a backlight (called a cold-cathode fluorescent light, or CCFL) which is uniform across the entire back of the screen.
This means that whether the image is black or white, it is being lit by the same brightness across the panel. This reduces hotspots, or areas of super bright light because the actual light source illuminating them is uniform.
What separates OLEDs from LCD/LED displays. In an OLED TV display, the pixels themselves are the things producing the light, and so when they need to be black they can turn off completely, rather than relying on a backlight to turn off on their behalf.
Benefits to OLED TVs.
OLED TV’s show a better image quality, blacker blacks and brighter whites, have faster response times and reduced power consumption.
The super-fast response times are great news if you’re on the hunt for a new gaming tv for use with a SONY PS5 or Xbox Series X.
