CES 2012 LG EM9600 World's largest and truly amazing 55-inch OLED TV

That Ultra definition promises picture quality of 8 million pixels – four times the resolution of existing full HD TVs (3840x2160).

You can also tinker about with the 3D depth as you watch and play on the set, while 3D Sound Zooming takes care of the tri-dimensional audio layout – the UD TV... LG is looking at launch around the second half of 2012.

1. What is OLED?

Way back in the 80's Kodak pioneered Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED)... Now 30 years later this technology is poised to oust LCD just as LCD turned CRT's into roadside trash.

An OLED panel consists of a layer of organic, light-emitting material sandwiched between two conductors (an anode and a cathode). This diode layer emits light when an electric current is passed through it. A TV panel features thousands of OLED pixels mounted in rows and columns onto a TFT array. This is referred to as an Active Matrix OLED or AMOLED display.

2. No backlighting required

Because the organic material used in an OLED panel emits its own light when charged, there's no need for a separate backlight. In comparison, LG's newly announced LH9000 LED TV relies on backlighting technology that "uses hundreds of LED elements to individually brighten and dim the image on the screen."

More vivid, lifelike colors, much higher refresh rate for fast action video, wider viewing angels, and higher contrast ratios, Organic light emitting diode Tvs dramatically enhance the viewing experience. Each frame is super sharp... display technology naturally refresh up to a thousand times faster than an LCD. Their color gamut can exceed NTSC standards. And this displays feature almost 180 degree viewing angle and in inherent contrast ratio of > 1.000.000:1.... In other words... well there are no other words... this is the future of tv displays... only the cost is delaying adoption...

3. OLED outperforms LCD and LED

OLED TVs have several advantages over traditional LCD televisions.  the lack of a backlight means that OLED TVs can be extraordinarily thin – the Sony XEL-1, for example, is only 3mm thick; Sony's prototype 21-inch OLED TV is a mere 1.4mm.

OLED pixels can also be turned on and off much quicker, giving OLED TVs a faster refresh rate, greatly improved contrast and unparalleled brightness. OLED panels are also far more energy efficient.
