What is an OLED Transparent Display?

With the rapid development of the display industry, ordinary display devices can no longer meet the market demand. LG has launched OLED transparent displays, and OLED transparent displays have begun to be favored by the market as flexible screens.

So what is an OLED display? First of all, we need to know that the base layer of OLED is made of flexible plastic material, while the ordinary display is made of a glass base layer. This makes the OLED display sheet-like, ultra-thin, and highly transparent.

The product has a more technological sense. The OLED adopts a luminescent and transparent organic OLED display. When the screen is turned off, it presents the visual texture of transparent glass, which is harmonious with the environment. The futuristic design can give users an amazing visual experience.

What is an OLED transparent display?

Transparent OLED display, that is, a self-illuminating transparent organic OLED screen, made of OLED. When the screen is turned off, it presents the visual texture of transparent glass, which is harmonious with the environment; OLED transparent display is self-illuminating, the wavelength is closer to natural light, the graphics and colors are richer, and it has the characteristics of flexible display, which can be made into a curved display The screen, with a futuristic design, can also give users a stunning visual experience.

OLED Transparent Display

Widely used in digital signage commercial display, transportation, construction, furniture, and other places.

Imaging principle

OLED is a kind of organic light-emitting screen, which requires a transparent OLED display device to form the OLED substrate, and the electrode material is a transparent material. When the device is closed, the light transmittance reaches more than 85%. When it is open, the light can be observed from both sides.

The key to OLED transparent screens is the use of transparent electrodes and organic films, which have low resistance and high light transmittance. In addition, the OLED screen itself has self-illumination characteristics, which means that each red, green, or blue sub-pixel on the screen will emit light by itself without relying on an additional backlight source, thereby achieving a better transparent display effect.

Advantages of OLED transparent display performance

OLED transparent display is a new type of display technology that makes the entire display transparent while retaining the displayed content. In terms of performance, the main advantages of OLED transparent screens are:

1. Good display effect

The display effect of the OLED transparent display is very good, with high contrast, high brightness, and vivid colors. Since it is an organic material, it can present clearer and more natural images that faithfully reproduce details and gradations of colors.

2. Wide viewing angle

The OLED transparent display has a wide range of viewing angles, that is, its display effect remains stable under different viewing angles. That’s because OLED technology is essentially a variant of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that allows for better control of the flow of light, eliminating the inherent imperfections of organic materials.

3. Low energy consumption

Compared with traditional LCD, the energy consumption of an OLED transparent display is much lower. This is due to the fact that LCD requires a backlight and can only control the intensity of light through filters, while OLED can directly control the brightness and color of each pixel. Therefore, OLED transparent screens have advantages in saving power.

4. Remarkable transparency

The transparency of OLED transparent displays is very high, which can reach more than 70% transparency. This makes it possible to display images and text on transparent surfaces without obscuring the background.

The OLED transparent display also has better self-luminous characteristics, which can achieve higher brightness and eliminate the leakage problem of traditional LCD screens.

5. Ease of manufacture

Compared with other types of displays, OLED transparent displays are easier to manufacture. Since it is composed of light-emitting diodes and can be fabricated on flexible materials, screens of various shapes and sizes can be easily fabricated to meet the needs of various applications.

  1. It has the inherent characteristics of OLED, high contrast, wide color gamut, etc.
  2. The shutdown is transparent and harmonious with the environment.
  3. Non-illuminated pixels are in a highly transparent state, which can realize virtual reality overlay display;
  4. The structure is light and easy to install.

Transparent OLED products suitable for office scenes can be equipped with OLED Transparent Display on external windows to achieve an open panorama and save space occupied by TVs and monitors, and this product has multiple uses such as video conferencing, display, and entertainment.

OLED Transparent Display are applied to home screens for interior decoration, which can enhance the sense of spatial integration and enhance the sense of high-end decoration; when applied to high-end brand stores, customers can see the displayed products and image information, highlighting the high-end image and better-achieving advertising effects.

A transparent OLED operates under the same exact principles, but the materials utilized have changed. Rather than needing a single transparent layer to emit light, all layers are transparent. Light is subsequently emitted through both sides of the display and, when powered off, can be nearly completely transparent.
In general, OLEDs may have brighter individual pixels, while LCDs can offer a brighter overall display. OLEDs are self-illuminating, so they have no backlight. This means LCDs are able to produce brighter images due to their powerful backlights.
