LG Display Unveils New Era of OLED Picture Quality with ‘META Technology 2.0’ at CES 2024

SEOUL, South Korea, January 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — LG Display, the world’s leading innovator in display technology, announced today that it is unveiling its OLED TV panel featuring its latest “META Technology 2.0” at CES 2024.

As peak brightness is a crucial component for higher picture quality, “META Technology 2.0” offers 42% brighter images than conventional OLED displays to achieve a peak brightness of 3000 nits. Because the higher peak brightness provides a more vivid viewing experience similar to what the human eye perceives, this marks the highest level of brightness of any large-size OLED panel to date.

Last year, LG Display broke the boundaries of OLED picture quality with the unveiling of ‘META Technology’ after a decade of research and development in high brightness technology, further expanding its competitive edge. Since then, LG Display has successfully developed “META Technology 2.0” within a year to solidify its leadership in OLED technology.

META 2.0 technology includes “Micro Lens Array Plus (MLA+)” featuring an optimized micrometer-scale lens pattern, the upgraded brightness enhancement algorithm “META Multi Booster” and the full-range brightness enhancement algorithm “Detail Enhancer”, which all combine to achieve a new maximum brightness of 3000 nits, allowing the OLED panel to express the precise colors and brightness intended in any environment.

LG Display’s Micro Lens Array technology features a layer of micrometer convex lenses. A total of 42.4 billion microlenses (in a 77-in 4K display) maximize the light emission in the OLED panel to achieve revolutionary brightness. The process of creating billions of microscopic lenses in a model is extremely technically challenging.

Based on extensive MLA data accumulated over the past year, MLA+ features an optimized lens angle that emits even the minimum light that would be lost due to internal reflections. With increased maximum brightness, OLED TV panels with META Technology 2.0 can more precisely depict contrasts for a more subtle and realistic viewing experience, from the captivating visualization of a cascading waterfall to the sparkle of individual droplets reflecting sunlight.

Also called Dragonfly Eye Technology, MLA+ and its billions of microlenses create more precise and detailed images with a wider 160-degree field of view, just as a dragonfly can see 360 ​​degrees through millions of convex lenses.

“META Multi Booster”, the company’s exclusive brightness optimization algorithm, analyzes each scene in exquisite detail to enhance not only peak brightness, a fundamental strength of LG Display OLED, but also color brightness for more precise and optimized viewing quality. the picture.

By incorporating MLA+ and META Multi Booster, META Technology 2.0 achieves improved color brightness of up to 1500 nits, 114% brighter than conventional OLEDs. This color luminance enhancement is effective when rendering HDR images, making brighter areas appear brighter and darker areas appear darker.

Furthermore, the power of META Multi Booster is best demonstrated when rendering images with bright, vibrant colors, such as the vivid and varied hues of the aurora borealis filling the night sky.

Displays typically struggle to accurately render darker images (low gradation) as opposed to brighter images (high gradation). LG Display’s patented ‘Detail Enhancer’ is an overall brightness detail enhancement algorithm that ensures consistent and accurate color expression regardless of brightness levels.

By incorporating a new data processing technique into OLED’s ‘Pixel Dimming’ technology, which precisely controls the light from 33 million pixels (based on 8K display) individually, Detail Enhancer enables the OLED panel to accurately render unique colors as they are intended to be seen. When depicting dark underwater scenes, viewers can experience the vivid colors and details of tropical fish without distortion.

OLED’s self-emissive structure allows each pixel to emit light independently without a backlight module, unlocking an infinite contrast ratio and extremely vivid and precise color expression. LG Display’s OLED TV panel based on META technology improves energy efficiency by 22% compared to conventional OLEDs with the same brightness. In addition, its remarkably low blue light emission and flicker-free state contribute to better eye health and even minimize environmental impact by using 90% less plastic materials than conventional LCDs.

LG Display unveiled its 83-inch OLED TV panel with META Technology 2.0 for the first time at CES 2024. As demand for ultra-large TVs continues to grow, the company plans to apply META Technology 2.0 to its lineup of large and ultra-large TVs. OLED TV panels, including 55-, 65-, 77- and 83-inch 4K OLED and the 77- and 88-inch 8K OLED to further strengthen its OLED leadership in the global premium TV market.

“META Technology 2.0 represents the pinnacle of displays, having gone beyond the limitations and boundaries of OLED to create the perfect harmony between people, nature and the environment,” said Hyeon-woo Lee, senior vice president and head of LG’s Large Display Business Unit Display. “We will firmly establish our technological advantage in the OLED TV panel market with the latest evolution of our META technology.”
