Is OLED the real future of television tech?
T3.com asks if Is OLED the real future of television tech?” when writing about the LG 65EC970V. The review gets 4 out of 5 starts, but starts with: “A 4K Ultra HD TV capable of some of the most gorgeous pictures ever seen on a home screen.”
For what feels like an eternity now OLED screens have been touted as the next big thing in TV technology. AV fans the world over have cooed over the way every pixel in an OLED screen can deliver its own precise light level rather than having to share external light sources across multiple pixels as happens with LCD technology.
There’s one big problem with OLED screens, though: they’re seriously hard to make.
We’ve lost count of the number of OLED TV false dawns and broken promises we’ve witnessed over the years. But now, at long last, the first really big and affordable OLED TV is here. Well, we say affordable, though at £5,999 that’s stretching the word’s use a touch, but compared to previous OLEDs that’s remarkably good value.
LG is the only company producing OLED panels at the moment and it’s process is being refined more and more, so future OLED TVs will be cheaper to manufacture.
We’re pleased to say that LG’s 65EC970V underlines its cutting edge, borderline historic, credentials by fitting a 4K UHD pixel count into its 65-inch OLED screen too.
