LG Display Introduces META 2.0 Technology OLED Panels with 3000 Nits Brightness

LG Display made a powerful statement at CES 2024, showcasing various sizes of transparent OLED screens and unveiling a gaming monitor with an impressive 480Hz refresh rate, double the current mainstream level. However, the spotlight was undeniably on the OLED panels featuring the latest META 2.0 technology, addressing OLED's most significant weakness—insufficient brightness.

Last year, LG Display introduced the META technology, and this year's 2.0 version incorporates a more advanced Micro Lens Array (now referred to as MLA+). These miniature lenses, designed in a dragonfly-eye pattern, significantly widen the viewing angle of OLED displays to 160 degrees. Combined with the new algorithm, these lenses contribute to a substantial increase in OLED panel brightness, boasting a 42% improvement over traditional OLED brightness, as claimed by the company.

META 2.0 tackles one of OLED's major drawbacks compared to competitors, be it Mini or MicroLED—insufficient brightness. LG Display asserts that its META 2.0 OLED panel achieves a peak brightness of 3000 nits.

The MLA+ combined with a novel brightness optimization algorithm allows for a more detailed analysis of scenes, enhancing peak brightness and color luminance. The next generation of OLED displays can achieve color brightness of up to 1500 nits, a remarkable 114% increase over traditional OLEDs. Furthermore, the new detail enhancement algorithm aims to accurately render image details in the transition between light and dark, preventing detail loss. Notably, this technology not only enhances image quality but is also more energy-efficient.

LG Display presented an 83-inch 4K META 2.0 OLED prototype, with future releases planned in 55, 65, and 77-inch versions, and an impressive 88-inch 8K OLED panel. These products will gradually find applications in consumer-grade televisions, monitors, and other areas, directly competing with Micro-LED technology.
