What is OLED?

Display technology is changing rapidly, and sometimes even deeply. Many are familiar with the acronym LED (which stands for “light emitting diodes”) as the reliable and popular technology behind some LCD monitors, providing brighter backlighting to flat panels while using little energy. This then lights up pixels on LCD screens, providing the image that you see on the monitor. OLED (acronym for Organic Light Emitting Diodes), it goes without saying, use a fundamentally different technology to emit light and thus to show images on screen. Let’s find out more.

OLED monitors consist of pixels made from OLEDs (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) rather than liquid crystal filled units. This means that each individual pixel can turn on or off, and the display can be controlled down to the individual pixel. OLED monitors provide deeper blacks and improved viewing angles, but also faster response times.

Visually amazing
The first mesmerizing feature of OLED is its ability to display uniquely lifelike visuals with deeper black details. Details in shadows and highlights are precisely reproduced, for a stunning viewing experience. The incredible color accuracy can make the difference for many users, in their day-to-day job or in their precious free time.

Since there is not a central light source, but each pixel lights up, image and brightness do not get distorted. Viewing angles are wider than ever, ensuring that the picture will looks clear and accurate from everywhere. OLED monitors deliver unmatched imagery.

Faster and ghost-free
With its perfect picture quality and improved image sticking, OLED makes a ghost free and fast responsive monitor, making it a great choice for gaming monitors. Its technology delivers faster reaction time and MPRT, lower reflection and input lag. The complete package, for unforgettable battles. Gamers can experience a gaming world full of bright colors and impressive contrast.

An example is the Philips Evnia 42M2N8900. This model features True 10-bit display for smoother color gradients, OLED display for stark contrast, 138hz refresh rate for fast page refreshing, 0.1ms GTG for quick responsiveness, DTS for enhanced sound, and UltraClear 4K UHD (3840×2160) resolution for precise imaging. In addition, the new monitor boasts a 4-sided thin bezel, a 42” screen, KVM for managing a two PC setup, a USB-C port, and a Height Adjustable Stand (HAS) for an all-around user experience.
