Popular thin-film transistor liquid crystal display technology manufacturer LG said that it has developed the world’s biggest OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) TV panel. According to the company, it measures 55 inches and 5 millimeters thin. They will unveil the said device in the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) which will be held in Las Vegas this year.
The latest technology enables light emitting diodes to self-generate light and it features a reaction velocity to electric signals over 1000 times quicker than liquid crystal.
It is different from a Low Temperature Poly Silicon type usually used in current OLED panels. It adopts an Oxide TFT technology for its backplane. The latter that LG Display uses is the same to existing TFT process, but it is lying in changing Amorphous Silicon Oxide. It also produces the same image quality to high performance of LTPS base panels at lower investment levels. They also allow Diodes to be switched off or on, giving it the ability for low power consumption.
According to Sam Beom Han, the CEO and executive vice president of LG Display, “our objective has always been to actively define and lead emerging display technology markets. Although OLED technology is seen as the future of TV display, the technology has been limited to smaller display sizes and by high costs, until now. LG Display’s 55 inch OLED TV panel has overcome these barriers.”
