Sophisticated OLED television boasts the skinny on groundbreaking design
What could be the world’s first organic light-emitting-diode (OLED) television, the superthin XEL-1 measures approximately 3 mm at its thinnest point. The organic panel consists of an electroluminescent organic layer that measures only several hundred nanometers thick, with two extremely thin glass panels aligned on either side. Super Top Emission feature produces a high-aperture ratio for efficient light emission that enables the display to faithfully reproduce light flow, such as reflections of sunlight; realistic contrast from deepest black to peak brightness; and the full spectrum of TV colors, even in dark movie scenes. Spontaneous response time naturally smoothes fast-moving images such as sports scenes. Because the OLED does not require a separate light source, the 11-in. TV consumes extremely low levels of power, as low as 45 watts, compared with other displays. Sophisticated suspension design features black and mirrorlike metal surfaces.
