At the same time, there are many types of led screens, such as LED transparent screens, fine pixel pitch LED displays, poster LED displays, etc.
(2)What is OLED?
OLED means Organic Light-Emitting Diode. It is a thin and light screen with low energy consumption.At the same time, it has high brightness, and a pretty luminous rate. What’s more, it is bendable. Therefore, the OLED display is a popular screen for curved TVs and mobile phones. As more major manufacturers increase their investment in OLED technology research and development, OLED is widely used in computer monitors, flat panels, and other fields.
(3)Differences Between LED Flexible Display and OLED Flexible Display
- Lighting Principle
First, LED flexible display emits energy by recombining electrons and holes to emit light. However, OLED flexible display is driven by the electric field of organic semiconductor materials and light-emitting materials, resulting in light emission through carrier injection and recombination. Therefore, the two screens have different display effects.
- Application Field
According to the difference in display effect, their main application areas are also different. LED flexible display is mainly used to manufacture various creative led screen works. It is more common in stages, bars, science and technology museums, and other occasions. OLED flexible display is mainly used for curved screen mobile phones, TVs, and other equipment.
- Viewing Distance
The OLED screen has a small pixel pitch and a high-definition picture. So it is suitable for close-up viewing. The LED display has a large pixel pitch. Therefore, it is better for long-distance viewing. In the case of the same area and pixel pitch, an OLED screen is much more expencive than an LED flexible display. So LED flexible display is a perfect way to save cost.
(4)Similarities between LED Flexible Display and OLED Flexible Display
- Good display performance.
The two display technologies have their advantages, such as good brightness, low power consumption, wide viewing angle, good luminous efficiency, and high picture clarity.
- High flexibility.
The screens are both bendable. And, the high flexibility allows them to bend while keeping components stable without damaging equipment.
