“We know consumers turn on televisions to experience their dreams across a variety of content,” Peter Weedfald, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Sharp, said in a press release. “America’s first Sharp Roku TV OLED 4K Ultra HD with HDR10 TVs with the full Roku TV experience built in smartly features both Dolby Vision IQ and Dolby Atmos technologies which truly makes your family’s entertainment dreams come true.”
The First OLED TV With Roku
LG, Samsung and other TV makers already sell OLED TVs, but this is the first time that an OLED model has included Roku.
What Makes OLED TV So Special?
The OLED TV is regarded as among the best, if not the best, TV on the market. The defining feature of OLED technology is its ability to produce true black levels by individually controlling each pixel’s illumination. Unlike traditional LED-LCD TVs that rely on a backlight, OLED screens can turn pixels on and off independently, resulting in an astonishing contrast ratio and a mesmerizing sense of depth.
