Benefits of Organic LED Technology

OLED Key Benefits

OLED displays offer more vivid images and crisper video without a backlight and are therefore thinner and lighter than conventional displays. Below are key benefits of OLED displays.

  • Thinner, lighter: AM OLED screens are just 1.5 millimeters thick about the thickness of a quarter and a fraction of the size possible in LCD displays.
  • Clearer, brighter: AM OLED displays have a refresh rate 1000 times faster than LCD, for fluid, clearer full-motion video. OLED luminance range is far greater than human perception and displays can brighten or dim while maintaining image contrast, shadows and highlights.
  • Wider viewing area: OLED displays have a wider viewing angle (up to 165 degrees) than most LCD displays, even in bright light.
  • Lower power consumption: OLED panels typically operate at 2 to 10 volts. Since OLED pixels only use power when they are lit, the displays can be more efficient than LCD screens, which have backlights that are always on at full brightness.

OLED Market Opportunity

OLED technology is the first display that shows the effect of devices advanced processing power such as more colorful, life-like images and video.

  • The market for OLED displays is expected to grow quickly: Research firm DisplaySearch projects the OLED display market including cameras and TV applications will reach $3 billion by 2007.
  • Kodak expects to generate $500 million in OLED display sales by 2005.
  • OLED technology delivers the high-quality, electronic image display that will drive the "info-imaging" market, a $385 billion industry composed of devices, infrastructure, and services and media.
