LG presents its OLED EX panels because it believes that the current ones are not bright enough

The iterations of OLED technology are legion. Each manufacturer creates its own variant and the original technology has come out ‘forks’ such as MicroLED, MiniLED, QNED or Crystal LED. And since we were few, gave birth to LG, which has just presented its new variant, called OLED EX.

What is the differential characteristic of OLED EX? According to LG, which is capable of increase brightness up to 30%, in addition to improving image precision and allowing the frames of televisions using these panels to be further reduced.

Long live deuterium

These new panels are based on two new features. The first, the use of deuterium compounds with which, according to the manufacturer, it is possible to create “highly efficient OLED panels that emit more intense light.”

Deuterium, they explain, is twice as heavy as conventional hydrogen (in fact it is also known as “heavy hydrogen”), and it is a stable isotope very little present in nature, but in LG they have managed to extract it from the water and apply it to these panels.

The second feature is its new ‘custom algorithm’ based on machine learning. With this tool LG affirms that thanks to the viewing patterns with which it is trained, it is capable of predict the use of up to 33 million diodes in 8K panels.

This process allows to control energy consumption much more precisely, but also better show the details and color of the picture.

Another interesting advantage that LG raises with its OLED EX technology is the possibility of reducing the frames of its Smart TVs. It has already done so with the 65-inch ones, which go from having 6 to 4 mm frames: a reduction of approximately 30% on its traditional OLED panels and therefore offer a more immersive experience.
