LG Display’s latest OLED panels will be capable of greater brightness levels than their predecessors, according to a new press release from the company that can confirm its third-generation OLED TV panels, freshly unveiled at CES 2023, feature a new tech dubbed META Technology that enables them to achieve 60% brighter images, as well as 30% wider viewing angles.
“LG Display’s newly-unveiled META Technology comprises a ‘Micro Lens Array’ that maximizes light emission from the OLED panel and ‘META Booster,’ a brightness-enhancing algorithm,” the company explained. “Based on META Technology, the company’s latest OLED displays achieve 60 percent brighter images and 30 percent wider viewing angles than conventional OLED displays, on top of improved energy efficiency.”
According to LG, this is a significant improvement over second-generation OLED TV panels, which feature EX Technology, introduced last year and capable of enhancing brightness by up to 30% versus its predecessors.
LG goes on confirm a peak brightness level of over 2,000 nits thanks to META Technology.
“With its innovative META Technology, LG Display redefines TV picture quality once again by achieving 2,100-nit peak brightness, the highest level of any TV display on the market today,” LG says. “By adding even more brightness to the already impressive picture quality and perfect black of OLED, META Technology realizes the intense and precise color expression that captivates viewers by blurring the lines between virtual and reality.”
LG Display says that META Technology will initially be found in the company’s latest 55-, 65-, and 77-inch 4K OLED TV panels, as well as higher-resolution 77- and 88-inch 8K OLED TV panels.
“The successful development of our superior ‘META Technology’ evolves the image quality of OLED TVs to a new, unparalleled level,” said Hyeon-woo Lee, Senior Vice President and Head of Large Display Business Unit at LG Display. “We will continue to lead the OLED TV market by expanding the ultra-premium OLED sector and strengthening our competitiveness with the best picture quality and most diverse lineups ever assembled.”
