The world's first 55-inch OLED TV wins Best of CES 2012 from CNET.
The CES 2012 was the largest in the event's 44 year history, with a record number of more than 3,100 exhibitors across the largest show floor in CES history – 1.861 million net square feet of exhibit space – and drawing a record of more than 153,000 attendees, including more than 34,000 international attendees. See our CES 2012 News for the highlights. CNET awarded their prestigious best of CES award to the 55-inch LG 55EM9600 OLED TV.
Using self-lighted organic pixels, the 55-inch screen class (54.6-inch diagonal) OLED TV exhibits precise color, absolute contrast and blazing clarity. Boasting a contrast ratio of over 100,000,000:1, fifty times greater than that of LED/LCD display panels, the OLED TV displays vivid colors and the fine details, helping to preserve images with utmost clarity and sharpness, even when displaying scenes with dark lighting. Since the OLED TV does not require a lamp or bulky support structures, it is 4mm (3/16ths of an inch) thin and weighs only 16.5 pounds.
