OLED displays are electronic visual panels that harness organic light-emitting diodes (which, of course, is what the acronym OLED stands for) for their core illumination power. OLED is a type of electroluminescent display technology, in which an organic material layer generates light when molecules in the diode are agitated by an electric current.
As with many other display types, an OLED array can be used to present images, text, video and more on a screen or panel of almost any size, and the technology has been especially prevalent on the high-end home entertainment market over the past few years. Thanks to the unique strengths they deliver in terms of power and performance, OLED screens are also in increasingly widespread use as performance display tools across all industries and sectors today.
In this guide, we’ll look more closely at exactly how OLED panels function, what the main strengths of the technology are when compared with more entry-level alternatives, and some of the brands whose products are currently excelling in a range of professional and industrial display settings.
