Display technology is constantly moving forward, and if you care about the best possible image resolution and performance, you’re sure to be on the lookout for innovative solutions that will allow you to be entertained with or work on images of the best quality. One technology to keep an eye on is an OLED display.
What exactly is an OLED display?
OLED stands for: Organic Light Emitting Diode. Such diodes are semiconductor devices, two hundred times thinner than a human hair, emitting their own light (unlike LCD screens). Thanks to the construction of OLEDs, OLED screens enable the display of even sharper and brighter images of very high quality, as well as very wide viewing angles. In addition, these displays are much more energy-efficient than the LCD designs that were popular in the past. As opposed to them, they do not have a backlight that is on at all times, but consume energy only when a specific pixel is turned on. Additional elements that prove the superiority of an OLED display over other technologies are their higher color contrast, faster refresh rates and their flexibility. This is because they can be used to create curved screens or even devices that can be folded and rolled, which was impossible with LCD displays with a backlight.
What to look for when choosing an OLED screen
There are several aspects you should pay some attention to when choosing the right OLED display for you. First of all, you should be prepared for a slightly higher expense than in the case of older technologies, but no worries – in this case it goes hand in hand with quality. Deciding on such a screen, we will benefit from the previously mentioned advantages over LCD technology and similar solutions. It’s worth checking what refresh rate the screen has – the best screens will have the ability to refresh the image at 100Hz, allowing a more dynamic transfer of the image in better quality. If the screen will be used intensively, it is also worth familiarizing yourself with its resistance to darkening and pixel burn-in. Due to the use of organic materials, screens darken with age, nevertheless established manufacturers have their ways to minimize the risk of premature wear. We hope you already know a little more about screens created with this technology and will be able to choose the one that best meets your expectations!
