Is superior performance alone enough to deliver the comfortable viewing experience consumers deserve? This is a question LG Display’s engineers ask themselves before developing any new product and technology, and why the team has adopted a novel design approach called “Human-Centric Design,” which was created by Stanford University professor John E. Arnold in 1958 to enhance convenience and experience by prioritizing the user’s well-being. This concept is particularly important when it comes to OLED technology, as it provides exceptional viewing experiences while working to minimize eye discomfort and consider a sustainable future. Let’s discover how OLED’s user-driven technology is better for everyone.
Enhancing the OLED experience through human-centric technology
Did you know that the TV remote has completely transformed over the years thanks to human-centric design principles? Since understanding that user convenience matters most, manufacturers have incorporated several design features, such as bigger buttons and flaps to hide rarely-used ones, to make using the remote control effortless.
LG Display always prioritizes the value it can offer to people when developing new technology, and the company’s OLED technology is the case in point. By developing OLED technology to realize unmatched lifelike picture quality, the company provided users with enhanced viewing experiences that they have never seen before. LG Display’s commitment to its human-centric display technology is evident in the company’s philosophy, “Technology is truly meaningful when placing human-centric value at its core”, which is right behind the numerous awards and recognition for LG Display’s user-friendly OLED displays.
OLED’s ‘Eye Comfort’ makes viewing easy on the eyes
When it comes to protecting the viewers from eye fatigue, LG Display has been commended by globally renowned institutions – and for good reason. LG Display has conducted extensive research to ensure its OLED displays deliver numerous ‘eye-comfort’ benefits that make them easy on the eyes because even perfect picture quality isn’t worth risking one’s vision. LG Display’s OLED has earned certifications and verifications related to eye health from global safety certification companies including UL and TÜV Rheinland, making it the go-to panel for those seeking better protection.
Prioritizing our planet’s future with a commitment to sustainability
Along with an impressive performance, LG Display’s OLED also boasts environmentally friendly aspects. To build the market’s most eco-conscious panels, the company introduced the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology to evaluate each product’s environmental impact over its entire lifespan. This has led to several achievements including a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, power consumption, and waste production, which is backed by numerous top ratings from global environmental institutions, with an AA rating from MSCI, Gold rating from EcoVadis’ ESG evaluation, and the Carbon Trust’s Product Carbon Footprint Certification.
In addition, LG Display’s OLED technology not only boasts a 92.7% recycling rate but uses more than 90% less plastic than conventional LCD panels to reduce environmental pollution and promote better resource circulation. Furthermore, our OLEDs emit 50% less air-polluting Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOCs) than LCDs, and refrain from using harmful substances such as indium and cadmium, which resulted in LG Display receiving SGS’s prestigious eco-product certification mark.
In conclusion, LG Display’s OLED technology is a true reflection of the company’s values and commitment to improving the world we live in. Our vision puts great importance on designing displays with all kinds of people in mind. And it’s this prioritization of human-centric displays that allows LG Display to make a real impact on both society and the environment, as the company continues to pave the way for a brighter, more sustainable future.
