Television or what we commonly call a ‘TV’ has unquestionably been a big wheel in the entertainment industry. The TV most certainly, proves to be the most affecting force in the minds of the people before the computing age. Especially before all our computers and mobile devices, TV was used to be the most influential force of that time. We are provided with news, entertainment, sports, current information on almost anything, and advertisements with that little set (TV) of yours.
To this day the TV remains a potent figure in the entertainment industry as well as for providing awareness. But have you ever wondered that ‘For This Addiction Of Ours’ (i.e. TV) not one but many technologies must have gone through collaborative effort and because of the competitive and curious nature of human beings, the technology is still being pushed to the limits and will keep happening so?
Many technologies are involved in making of this prestigious product.
The technology stands for ‘quantum dot light-emitting diode’. The QLED’s have the same mechanism as the classical LED with the only major difference being the use of quantum dots as a filter to produce better and more accurate colors. The quantum dot layer on the LCD brings out the difference. And by the name, you must have gotten the idea that how colors might be produced from this. The quantum dots produce color differently from the inefficient traditional white LED’s.
These quantum dots dramatically enhances the performance of the television in the matter of color and brightness, when compared to the non-quantum LED equivalents.
QLED TVs have a considerable advantage when it comes to brightness. It uses various types of techniques to produce the best visual devotion, that you can find in a buyer set.
Various small brands are now manufacturing TVs with QLED technology when initially, only Samsung was the company that was acclaiming it all, as it brought the technology into the market.
QLED, because of having the very amazing quantum dot filter, is best for the function of illumination or say brightness.
If you are a light-loving person and your room has an enormous amount of windows in it, then TVs having the QLED technology, plays the best role in providing you with the necessary amount of radiance that you need for your television.
QLED is the best choice for your room if it has an entrance to an ambient amount of light. All of this is because of the presence of quantum dots, that makes QLED, to function well in light and show a better image.
Another advantage of having QLED is that, it is less expensive in comparison to the other technologies. So, you can easily afford televisions with this technology without having to go out of your budget.
The brands which provides TV with QLED technology are-
In the era of deluxe displays, organic light-emitting diode or OLED technology is formidably considered the major type of TV today. This display is different because an LED backlight is not used to produce light. In this type of display, pixels are used as a backlight. The screen displays color when electricity passes through the organic compounds which light up and completely shut down without it (these organic compounds are responsive to an electric current that is why they emit light). The OLED displays are the ones that are being talked about nowadays. It delivers ultra-wide viewing angles to pure blacks with incredible contrast and color saturation.
Displays with OLED technology make the basic LCD displays look phenomenal.
These OLED TVs have formidable contrast and exquisite brightness which gives them great audacity to deliver an outstanding HDR image, better than any QLED TV (personally tested).
OLED displays use way less power than an LCD model, making them a more efficient electric technology.
Each pixel in the OLED technology produce their own light. This why televisions with OLED technology do not need any backlight.
OLED provides you with the best image quality and also an amazing contrast ratio.
Unlike QLED, best for brightness, OLED stands the best for displaying a quality image in dim lights or deep blacks.
It matters for scenes shot in low light or at night. OLED features the appropriate amount of light required in the darkness.
Imagine you are watching a movie or your favorite show, and suddenly a scene comes shot at night or there ain’t any light around, and you are finding it hard to see what is actually happening in there.
All of these light problems are dealt by OLED as it is it’s function to work in the low light areas.
Brands that makes OLED TVs are-
LG (LG makes it’s own OLED TVs)
B & I Beovision Harmony.
Which To Choose?
I would definitely recommend, OLED. Why? Features, Price, and Quality. Plus, there’s not too much difference to notice for a consumer who just wants to watch Movies, TV Series, Web Series.
Gamers have to compare way more things than just OLED and QLED. For Gamers, Screen Size, Pixel Density and Resolution, HDR, XDR, Refresh Rate and Frames per second matters more than OLED or QLED. Fact: LG makes all OLED and Samsung makes all QLED. That doesn’t change anything. Just the love for the brand.
Screen size and frames per second is a whole lot of complex scenario to get into for a simple daily consumer. 144hz or 90hz screen will do just fine. Here again, it depens on the budget. 144hz costs more than 90hz or 120hz.
HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and is one of the very vast technology that is used to make your television a high-quality version of itself.
Unlike the technology 4K which focuses on the quantity of pixels, HDR focuses more on the quality of pixels.
Out of the pixels of a 4K TV, HDR gets for you, a higher amount of dynamic pictures.
This technology makes a bright image on the TV looks brighter, whereas it makes the dark image look darker.
In terms of standard display, below a certain brightness level, everything seems to be in the same shade of black.
HDR allows you to differentiate between the brightness level and tell whether the thing is just dark/ bright or is really dark/ bright.
Another advantage of having HDR technology on your television is that it provides the display with a realistic color range and an increased amount of contrast ratio for the dark image to look darker or close to actual black.
The increase of brightness means the increase of contrast and HDR increases the contrast of the image on the screen by increasing the brightness.
HDR provides an enormous visually pleasing picture, rather than just having a lot of pixels.
Due to an amazing contrast ratio, it produces a much brighter image than regular.
The ultimate goal of HDR is to maintain as much original image quality as possible.
For better resolution and visual satisfaction of the image, HDR is the best technology that could be used.
HDR focuses on how the quality of your pixels is and provides you with a clear image, having a better viewing angle.
For a clear resolution of dark and black motion pictures, HDR gives a clear view. And it increases the brightness level thus increasing the contrast level.
It is an entertainment platform which is built into a number of TV’s like Sony, LeECO, etc. It is simply a kind of android operating system made for digital products. This operating system is a product of Google and also comes built into a number of streaming players for video play like for example Nvidia shield.
