LG META technology OLED panels are inspired by the dragonfly eye structure

LG showcased its first third-generation OLED product at CES 2023 this year. This is the first TV with Zero Connect technology, which supports wireless transmission of 4K@120Hz real-time video and audio. Compared with QLED and mini LED, peak brightness has always been the main disadvantage of OLED, so LG introduced META technology in the third-generation OLED products.

According to TomsHardware, LG’s META technology was inspired by dragonfly glasses, using a “Micro Lens Array (MLA)” similar to a compound eye structure. This is a layer of a micron-level convex lens, which improves energy efficiency by about 22%, and realizes the technology that OLED brightness and viewing angle surpass again. LG also utilizes its unique “META Booster” brightness enhancement algorithm to improve screen brightness and color expression by analyzing and adjusting the brightness of each scene in real-time, while also enhancing the HDR effect.

According to LG, the third-generation 77-inch 4K OLED TV panel based on META technology has a total of 42.4 billion microlenses, and each pixel has about 5117 microlenses, achieving a peak brightness of 2100 nits.Compared with the traditional OLED display, the new product has a 60% higher screen brightness and a 30% higher viewing angle with halved brightness, achieving a wide viewing angle of 160°, brighter light, and deeper blacks, the most accurate color expression and the most vivid images to date.

LG will initially apply the META technology to its 55-inch, 65-inch, 77-inch, and 88-inch OLED TVs, the 88-inch of which will be 8K resolution. According to OLED-Info, LG will also use META technology on gaming monitors, and LG UltraGear 27GR95QE-B and ASUS ROG Swift PG27AQDM will be the first products.
