What is OLED?
An organic light emitting diode (OLED) is any light emitting diode (LED) whose emissive electroluminescent layer is composed of a film of organic compounds. The layer usually contains a polymer substance that allows suitable organic compounds to be deposited. They are deposited in rows and columns onto a flat carrier by a simple "printing" process. The resulting matrix of pixels can emit light of different colors. The primary benefit of OLED displays over traditional LCD’s is that OLED’s do not require a backlight to function, and consume less power during operation. OLED displays are expected to be more efficiently manufactured than LCD’s and plasma displays. The fledgling technology of making ultra-thin displays using organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) is starting to bear fruit finally with Sony, Samsung SDI and other makers introducing new applications. OLED has more control over color expression because it only expresses pure colors when an electric Current stimulates the relevant Pixels.

OLED also provides faster response times by orders of magnitude, eliminating any ghosting or even appreciable latency. OLED displays are picking up steam, as the technology can produce richer colors and better pictures in limited amount of space -- think of large, gorgeous TV displays thinner than a pencil. OLED is made from organic (or carbon-based) components that are placed between two conductors. OLED stands for Organic Light-emitting Diode and is based on a process whereby electrical energy is converted into light. OLED screens consist of a series of organic layers between two electrical contacts (electrodes). OLED (organic light-emitting diode) is superior to traditional LCD technologies in a number of ways and has been long considered the (almost) perfect mate for televisions. OLED self luminescent displays feature superb video image response times and stunningly vivid color reproduction.

OLED technology is currently patented by the Eastman Kodak company and several other companies. OLED pixels can refresh (change color and/or intensity) in less than one micro-second. The nominal refresh rate for LCD’s is 10 – 15 milliseconds; 1,000 to 1,500 times slower. OLED televisions are the odds-on favorite to supplant current technologies as the next generation display. OLED television sets are very thin and light that no longer works on the principle of screen backlighting. OLED has more control over color expression because it only expresses pure colors when an electric Current stimulates the relevant Pixels. OLED also provides faster response times by orders of magnitude, eliminating any ghosting or even appreciable latency. OLED displays are picking up steam, as the technology can produce richer colors and better pictures in limited amount of space -- think of large, gorgeous TV displays thinner than a pencil. An OLED screen delivers shades of black that LCD TVs still have trouble achieving, while color reproduction capabilities of 150 percent deliver an extremely vibrant experience (especially with an additional built-in 14-bit up conversion, according to Sony).
