OLED or Organic Light Emitting Diodes is currently on the rise particularly for the 21st century. And what's so great about it is the fact that it brings together the best part of the modern and natural world together. So what exactly is OLED technology and how does it affect the way we see things now both literally and figuratively speaking?

OLED Television and displays were first heard of in around the 1950's when A. Bernonose together with his team started a short experiment on the creation of light by passing it in between two semiconductors. The experiment was a complete success and it began its long development. During the 1980s, Dr. Ching T. Wang developed the first real diode for the Kodak Eastman company.

Today OLED is slowly taking over the market. Not only is it being used in the production of televisions, it has also been used in PDAs, Car stereos and wrist watches. In a recent trade convention, several mobile phones were unveiled before the general public that has been noted in using AMOLED or Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diodes.

But what's so great about OLED displays and OLED TVs that it has become a major competition for High Definition TVs and Flatscreen TVs or LCD TVs? The answer is simple. First, OLED displays implicitly do not require any form of backlighting. This means that it does not require the same amount of energy or electricity in order for it to work. Secondly, OLED TVs have a higher color ratio compared to other types of televisions. Reports state that OLED TVs are known to exceed the standard NTSC standards and displays a brilliant 180 degree angle and a > 1.000.000:1 contrast ratio. It's that powerful. Another advantage of OLED TVs is the fact that it gives off superior quality for color and has a better and wider angle compared to the normal television sets. At 180 degrees, you can see everything from just about anywhere in the living room.

Televisions that support OLED technology not only save electricity and energy but also save space. Unlike flatscreens and HDTVs, OLED TVs are truly slim in nature. This means more space to move around.

Finally, futurists believe that in two to three years, OLED will have experienced massive developments and will most likely be cheaper to what it currently is right now. This would mean cheaper televisions, mobile phones, PDAs and other digital gadgetry.

These are just a few of the things that make OLED, technology and products superior. People who pass the opportunity to try the increased efficiency and superior capabilities of OLED displays are bound to miss out on a truly great opportunity.
