There’s a pretty good chance that over the past couple of months or so, you’ve been spending a lot more time hanging out at home than you were previously used to.
So for many of us, our screen time is way up — which means we may as well make the most of it from a quality standpoint. And quality doesn’t just refer to the latest peak TV limited series from your favorite streaming service; it’s also about the viewing experience itself.
If you’re ready to look at a new TV screen, an OLED TV powered by self-lit pixels is an amazing choice. Whether you’re looking for something on the smaller end or making moves to turn your living room into a home theater, LG makes plenty of innovative options.
What is OLED?
OLED stands for “organic light-emitting diode.” A single diode, like the individual pixels found on LG’s OLED TVs (like the LG GX 77 inch Class with Gallery Design 4K Smart OLED TV) are self-lit and emit both light and color — so they don’t require a backlight.
LG’s OLED TVs are powered by 8.3 million of these pixels which deliver perfect black and show true color. The result is a picture that delivers impressive picture quality and details that are far more vibrant than what you get from a traditional TV screen — with a sleeker design.
Perfect Black Is Better
The blacker your TV can go, the better the overall image quality. Because darkness and shadow are essential aspects that factor into framing many shots, black has an enormous impact on overall picture quality. When placed next to a perfectly black pixel, colors come off as much more vibrant.
OLED TVs‘ self-lit pixels, offer “perfect black” — which allow for colors to show their true hue. Since the pixels are producing their own light, they’re able to turn off completely when they need to be black, emitting virtually no light and making the picture blacker than when an LED TV has to rely on a backlight to “turn off” pixels. This perfect black, or lack of light, enables pixels to combine with others to bring out their richness. So when you’re watching a darker scene, the perfect black and infinite contrast work together to bring out shadow detail, making for a crisp and visually stunning presentation with vibrant and true color.
The Best of the OLED TVs
One of the best OLED TVs is the LG GX 77 inch Class with Gallery Design 4K Smart OLED TV. It makes the most of all its millions of OLED pixels, and at 77 inches, it helps make your viewing experience more immersive than what you’ve previously gotten with smaller screens.
