LG Display has received the “Low Blue Light Display (OLED)” Verified Mark from UL, a leading global safety science company, for its OLED TV displays.
The UL Mark for “Low Blue Light Display (OLED)” is given to display products when their blue light emission meets the “risk exempt” standard (100W/sr/m2) set by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). LG Display’s OLED TV displays were found to emit 50% lower blue light than the standard, or about 60 percent of blue light that the same-size premium LCD TV displays on the market are reported to emit. Blue light is known to exacerbate eye fatigue and sleep disturbance.
According to market research firm IHS Markit, the global annual shipment of OLED TV displays is expected to grow to 5.4 million units in 2020, further increasing to 7.3 million units in 2021 and over 12 million units in 2023.
