LG Display’s OLED TV panel has completed verification from the top U.S. safety certification company for the reduction of blue light harmful to users’ eyes.
LG Display made an announcement on Feb. 5 that it has obtained a verification mark of ‘Low Blue Light Display’ for large OLED panels from UL, a global safety science company that boasts 126 years of history.
The verification was carried out by the internationally recognized International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) evaluation law, which measures blue light emissions from display screens.
The "Low Blue Light Display" verification mark is a recognized mark that is issued when blue light emissions, which are known to cause increased eye fatigue or sleep disturbances, meet the harmless criteria set by IEC.
It was measured to be 50 percent lower than the IEC harmless standard (100W/sr/m2) for LG Display’s OLED panels. The figure is equivalent to about 60 percent of LCD TV blue light emissions of the same-inch top specification being sold, the company stressed.
"UL is a global company that has long experience and expertise in testing and evaluation," said Mirko Bautz, vice president of the UL Global Account, adding that LG Display’s OLEDs are next-generation displays and UL will provide the support necessary to win recognition in the international market.
Meanwhile, LG Display is the only large OLED in the world to produce, which represents the most complete ‘black’ and boasts an infinite amount of contrast that LCD can never implement.
In addition, OLED is recognized as the best display in terms of overall picture quality, including its rich and accurate color representation and response speed, which is 1,000 times faster than LCD.
