In December 2021, LG Display unveiled its OLED.EX (Evolution and eXperience) technology, that are based on deuterium-enhanced compounds to increase brightness by up to 30%. The company now announced that it has completed upgrading all of its WOLED TV production lines (in Korea and China) to EX technology, and all new panels will use the new materials.
LG Display says to develop the OLED.EX technology, it has converted the hydrogen elements present in organic light emitting elements into stable deuterium. LGD extracts the deuterium compounds from water, and after stabilization, the compounds allow the OLED devices to be brighter - and also last longer.
OLED.EX panels also integrate new algorithms that study the individual viewing patterns, and precisely control the displayâ€™s energy input to more accurately express the details and colors of the video content being played.
LGD's OLED.EX panel bezels are also thinner by 30% compared to the company's existing panels (from 6 mm to 4 mm on 65" panels).
