If you’re fed up with blurred, low-resolution screens on your mobile phone, digital camera, mp3 layer or desktop computer, you’ll appreciate OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) screen technology.
The first generation of handheld consumer electronics devices that use an innovative new display technology are starting to appear more commonly on store shelves, with more many more on the way.
A key benefit of OLED screens is the bright, clear images they produce. OLED screens refresh faster, so they’re better at displaying video. And the best active-matrix models can display nearly four times as many colors as equivalent-size LCDs can reproduce.
Unlike LCDs, OLED’s emit their own light in the form of electroluminescence. As a result, OLED displays appear brighter and sharper than LCDs, even when viewed at an angle. And as a side benefit of ditching the LCD backlight, OLEDs are very power-efficient, offering excellent battery life or lower mains power consumtion battery thrifty.
OLED displays ar ultra thin, so much so that they may be manufactured so they can be rolled up. OLED displays are also far cheaper to manufacture, paving the way for truly giant screens, or screens being introduced to other household and lifestlye products.. As the technology is developed, it would theoretically be possible to incorporate OLED screens into anything with a processor and power supply.
