OLED vs. 4K TV: What's the difference and which is better?

By gadjosevilla from 11-15-2013

20110907_c9285_photo_en_2959.jpgThe next generation of HDTV screen display technology is upon us. On one end, 4K (also known as Ultra HD) is heralding an age of hyper-detailed displays with almost four times the resolution of 1080p HD. On the other end, there's OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) technology which is brighter and offers better contrast than LED and even Plasma displays.

 

More than just home theatre catchwords, 4K and OLED are expected to be the cornerstone technologies for home theatre in the years to come. Here's an overview.

Canadians will be able to buy LG's 55-inch Curved OLED TV (55EA9800) when it launches this fall at Future Shop for the hefty price of $10,999. At just 4.5mm thick (at its thinnest point) and weighing in at just shy of 38 lbs. the TV comes off a little bit like a mini-theatre screen. And it’s OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode), which means you’re getting some of the best picture quality ever seen. LG showed off the new TV for a hands-on look at an event in Toronto, and here’s the scoop.

Experience the Brilliance of OLED

What is OLED TV?

You’re probably already familiar with the current standards of HDTV technology: LCD, plasma, and LED. However, you might not have heard of OLED, which stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode. OLED HDTVs have arrived, and they’re incredible. You might have already seen an OLED screen – variations of OLED technology have already been utilized in some smartphones.

The core of an OLED display is a carbon film (that’s the “organic” part), sandwiched between two conductors, that produces light when zapped with electricity. The result is basically a sheet of plastic that can be super thin with some prototypes coming in at just 0.3 mm thick. OLED technology allows for close to 180-degree viewing angles with lighting quick refresh rates, better contrast, and incredible colour reproduction.

The features of OLED Technology

OLED displays create images so sharp, clear, and bright it feels like you’re looking through a window, rather than viewing an electronic screen. They have much greater brightness than other types of TVs, as well as a wider viewing angle, so if your family’s spread across the living room they’ll all still be able to see a clear picture. The refresh rate of an OLED screen is many times faster than LCD, so there will be little, if any, motion blur. Since OLED displays don’t require a backlight you’ll get immensely deep blacks and superb colour accuracy. In short, your eyes are in for a real treat.

Future friendly

OLED screens are extremely energy efficient, so they’ll put a much smaller impact on your utility bills. Since they’re very durable, they’ll be a staple in your entertainment setup for years to come. How would you like to have a computer screen that you can roll up and put in your bag? How about a window that transforms into a television at the push of a button? Some manufacturers have developed flexible and transparent OLED screens, so the possibilities really are exciting.

With OLED TVs already establishing their presence in the home theatre market, it’s clear that the next generation of spectacular HDTV technology is here.
