OLED TVs set to shake up the tevision industry
Detroit’s WXYX TV’ wxyz.com reports that the latest in television technology is called OLED. It stands for organic light-emitting diodes. Organic refers to the layer of carbon film, which emits light when hit with an electric current.
The head of Consumer Reports television testing says it’s the best display technology out there, combining the best features of plasmas and LCDs. It has the deep black levels and unlimited viewing angles of top plasmas. At the same time it delivers on the power efficiency, super-thin bezel design and also the bright picture of LCD TVs.
OLED TVs started out very expensive. The first one that Consumer Reports tested last year was $10,000. Others were even more. But prices are coming down. The LG that’s now in Consumer Reports’ lab is $3,500.
