On March 31st, LG Display (CEO, Ho-Young Chung) announced that OLED TV panels have obtained the 'Discomfort Glare Free' verification from UL, the world's most prestigious safety certification company, for the first time in the industry.
'Glare' refers to a phenomenon that causes discomfort in the eyes due to a severe brightness difference. Typical examples are the blindness and fatigue you feel when looking at a bright smartphone in a dark bedroom.
This verification was carried out for customers, improving image quality and proper screen brightness, considering that more people are watching TV longer than ever due to the COVID-19.
UL conducts tests based on the UGR (Unified Glare Rating), a glare evaluation corporation accredited by the International Lighting Commission (CIE). The verification mark is issued only when the UGR is 22 or less when watching TV between 70 lux (lx), which is about the brightness of a bedroom stand, and 300 lux (lx), which is about the intelligence of an indoor window on a sunny day.
All OLED TV panel models satisfied the standard value by expressing the best picture quality without glare by realizing the appropriate screen brightness. It is a level where you can enjoy content comfortably in various environments, such as North America and Europe, where indirect lighting is focused, and Asia, where direct lighting is heavily used.
OLED can control about 33 million pixels (based on 8K), providing an infinite contrast ratio with relatively little light, providing a comfortable clarity for the eyes.
OLED TV is the only one that has been certified and verified by a globally leading certification body for all of the main elements of healthy TV, such as low blue light, flicker-free, glare-free and glare-free display.
LG Display is planning to make the Glare-Free Display verification mark available to global OLED TV customers and distributors as part of the "OLED trending."
"OLED is recognized as the most comfortable and safe display for the eyes by difficult global organizations," said Chang-ho Oh, vice president of LG Display's TV division revealed.
