In addition to all the new gadgets and gizmos at CES each year it seems like there’s always at least one (if not several) televisions on the show floor touting themselves as the “world’s largest.” It looks like CES 2012 will be no exception; however, this year LG has jumped the gun a bit and has already announced its new monster: a 55-inch OLED screen.
55-inches is certainly not the biggest television out there, but this panel will be the biggest OLED screen we’ve ever seen.
LG Display’s 55″ OLED TV panel produces remarkable image quality with no after image due to its high reaction velocity, as well as high contrast ratio of over 100,000:1 and wider color gamut than that produced by LCD panels.
OLED, a medium that controls pixels is a departure from LCD panels which utilize liquid crystals. The new technology allows light emitting diodes to self-generate light and features a reaction velocity to electric signals over 1000 times faster than liquid crystal.
The environmentally conscious will also appreciate LG Display’s 55″ OLED TV panel. While light sources in backlight units, like LCD panels, must always be kept on, the OLED panel allows diodes to be turned on or off which enables lower power consumption than conventional LCD panels.
With no need for a special light source, LG Display’s 55″ OLED TV panel is also able to utilize a simplified structure thinner than that of a pen (5mm), and lighter than LCD panels. The panel’s minimalist structure also allows for the realization of unique design elements.
LG’s 55-inch OLED panel will be on display at CES 2012 starting January 9th. Be sure to stay turned to TechnoBuffalo to find out more info about the panel, as well as what the competition brings at the show.
