LG has introduced a new OLED TV display technology called OLED.EX ahead of CES 2022 today. The technology, short for “Evolution” and “eXperience”, aims to improve overall image quality by improving brightness by up to 30% compared to conventional OLED displays.
New LG OLED.EX Tech Detailed
The new OLED.EX technology uses the basic self-emissive property of an OLED display, delivering deeper blacks and accurate colors. But this is not the best part. LG applies deuterium compounds to the technology to produce highly efficient organic light-emitting diodes. This can help with stronger light emissions, which in turn will improve image quality, clarity and color accuracy without any distortion.
LG has devised a new way to extract deuterium for this process, as the element is 2 times heavier than hydrogen and occurs in small quantities.
This is combined with LG’s personalized machine learning algorithm to improve the efficiency of the technology. The algorithm can predict the usage amount of the organic light-emitting diodes (up to 33 million) and can control the output power of the display based on user patterns to make it more efficient.
In an official blog post, Dr. Oh Chang-ho, Executive Vice President & Head of the TV Business Unit at LG Display:, “With our new OLED.EX technology, we aim to provide even more innovative, high-quality customer experiences through the evolution of our OLED technology, algorithms and designs.”
In addition, the new technology will reduce the bezel of the screen from 6mm to 4mm (for 65-inch OLED displays), requiring an even more immersive viewing experience. The OLED.EX technology is expected to be integrated into the OLED TVs, from the second quarter from 2022.
LG also has announced that it will showcase the new transparent OLED solutions at the upcoming CES 2022 event, which starts on January 5. More display technologies and TVs are also expected, so stay tuned for our extensive coverage.
