SEOUL, Korea (Feb. 17, 2020) – LG Display, the world’s leading innovator of display technologies, announced today that it has received Eye Comfort Display certification for its automotive P-OLED displays from TÜV Rheinland, a global leader in independent inspection services. This is the first automotive display in the industry to receive Eye Comfort Display certification.
“This certification by TÜV Rheinland means that P-OLED is internationally recognized as the most cutting-edge and optimal automotive display,” said Jung-sik Shin, Senior Vice President and Head of the Auto Business Division at LG Display. “With its industry-leading P-OLED displays, LG Display will enable people to experience premium values in their cars, thereby opening a new era of automotive displays and solidifying its leading position in the global automotive display market.”
Using plastic substrates instead of glasses, LG Display’s P-OLED displays offer high design flexibility to meet the driver’s needs while maintaining the excellent picture quality of OLED. With its newly-certified P-OLED automotive displays, LG Display will help drivers experience greater eye comfort at any time, even when driving in strong sunlight or at night, as well as meeting the growing needs for higher picture quality of automotive displays.
The Eye Comfort testing process measures three categories: light reflection ratio, blue light content, and picture quality. LG Display’s automotive P-OLED displays scored 0.22% in the light reflection test. This figure is far below the threshold of 1%. The P-OLED displays also scored 23% for blue light content, which is less than half of the standard of 50%. Additionally, this figure is just one third of the excess blue light emitted by automotive LCD panels. The company’s P-OLED displays also met all testing criteria for picture quality, including color reproduction, contrast ratio, and brightness.
“LG Display’s automotive P-OLED displays are the first product that we have provided our respected Eye Comfort Display certification for and we believe these displays will create a new trend in the automotive display industry,” said Holger Kunz, Executive Vice President of Products at TÜV Rheinland.
LG Display began mass-producing automotive P-OLED displays at its Gumi plant in Korea earlier this year. According to global research firm IHS, automotive P-OLED display shipments are expected to reach up to 110,000 units this year and further grow by a whopping 80% on an annual basis to 4.6 million units by 2026.
