LG Display’s plastic organic light-emitting diode (P-OLED) panel for vehicles has been certified as the industry’s first "easy-eyed display."
LG Display said on Feb. 17 that it has obtained such certification for P-OLED panels from global technology evaluation agency "TUV Rheinland."
P-OLED is a product with a high degree of design freedom, as it uses plastic material as a substrate instead of glass and can bend to the driver’s view while maintaining the excellent quality of OLED.
According to LG Display, certification tests were conducted in three categories: light reflectance, blue light emission, and resolution. In the "light reflectance" test, which results in glare due to the reflection of sunlight and other outside lights, it recorded a reflectivity of up to 0.22 percent, down more than 70 percent from the 1 percent threshold.
Blue-light emissions, which cause eye fatigue, such as nighttime operations, were about 23 percent, below the 50 percent threshold. This is about one-third the amount of blue light emitted by liquid crystal displays (LCDs) for vehicles.
In addition, it met standards in all areas such as color reproduction rate, contrast ratio, and brightness in a quality test.
LG Display began mass production of P-OLEDs for vehicles at its Gumi plant in South Korea from early this year, also supplying the product to U.S. automaker General Motors's premium car brand Cadillac for the first time in the world.
"This certification means that P-OLED has been internationally recognized as an optimal display for vehicles," said Shin Jung-sik, executive vice president of auto business at LG Display. "With P-OLED, we will solidify the position of the display leader for vehicles."
