“Strengths of OLED Wide Viewing Angle Because an OLED becomes self-emissive through organic material, its viewing angle is far wider than an LCD. This wide viewing angle can provide great improvements in a wide variety of product applications. It also offers new design concepts to industrial designers who were before limited by the constraints of traditional LCD Fast Response Time A slow response time is one of the main problems with existing LCD technology. Applications, which require animation, are limited to a certain extent with traditional LCD. OLED offers 1,000 timers quicker than in response speed which reduces design constraint of displays. Low Power Consumption Because backlight is not required for OLED, the power consumption is lower than a LCD module. This can increase the lifetime of batteries for portable products. Compact size Since a backlight is not required for OLED, lightweight and extremely thin displays can be applied to many products, opening up a wide range of new design possibilities. High Brightness & Contrast OLED offers a drastically higher level of brightness and contrast as compared to LCD.”

“Displays made of glowing plastic molecules called OLEDs (organic light emitting diodes) promise brighter and cheaper alternatives to liquid crystal displays (LCDs). Made of thin, nanostructured polymer films, OLED screens based on technologies developed by companies such as Cambridge Display Technology (CDT) in England and Eastman Kodak Co. of Rochester, N.Y., are beginning to hit the market. .”
