LG Display announced today that it received an Eye Comfort Display certification from TÜV Rheinland, a global leader in independent inspection services, for its large-size OLED TV panels. Eye Comfort testing addresses three common concerns: blue light content, flicker, and high-quality imaging. The light produced by LG Display’s 65-inch OLED panels consists of 34% blue light, which is lower than the 50% threshold. While the highest spec 65-inch LCD panels produce 64% blue light, LG Display’s OLED panels emit only half that amount.
LG Display has met every testing criterion including in the high color range and High Dynamic Range categories. The company scored 0.87% in the light reflection category, which is half of that of LCD panels.LG Display will encourage its OLED TV panel customers and distribution companies to use TÜV Rheinland’s certification mark. “Certification by TÜV Rheinland means that LG Display’s OLED TV panels are now internationally recognized as displays beneficial for eye health,” said Dr. Chang-Ho Oh, Executive Vice President & Head of the TV Business Unit at LG Display. He added, “We anticipate that consumers can now choose OLED TVs with more confidence.”
“TÜV Rheinland is an internationally renowned independent testing service provider with many years of experience in the test certification field. We congratulate LG Display on receiving the certification, and we will provide the necessary support for the company to get additional international recognition for the quality of OLED, the next-generation display technology,” said Holger Kunz, Executive Vice President of Products at TÜV Rheinland.
LG Display’s OLED TV displays were previously recognized for their low blue light emissions. They were certified by TÜV Rheinland as emitting the lowest possible level of blue light, as well as being verified the highest blue light safety rating by UL, which is 50% lower than the standard set by the International Electro technical Commission. This blue light recognition combined with flicker-free status confirms the company’s OLED displays as being exceptionally easy on the eye.
As the number of OLED TV brands has recently increased to 19, LG Display will encourage its global OLED TV customers and distributors to use the “Flicker-Free” and “Low Blue Light” certificate mark and verified mark as part of its efforts to further spread the popularity of OLED TVs.
“As people have more time to watch TV at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, eye comfort is becoming a more important factor to consider. LG Display will continuously offer the best experience to its customers through its OLED displays providing maximum eye comfort as well as unparalleled picture quality and futuristic design,” said Dr. Chang-ho Oh, senior VP & head of the TV Business Unit at LG Display.
