The New Lighting MVP: OLED

By now, you’ve learned probably picked up on the pro’s of using LED lighting over regular fluorescents. Now a new player has come into town, the OLED bulb.

The difference you ask? LED, light-emitting diode, lighting is known for using intensely bright sources of light that follow the shape of a traditional light bulb. The OLED, organic light-emitting diode, bulb uses flat, dimmer sources of light and is seen using a glowing square or rectangle. Since OLED lighting is not as intense of a light, fixtures can be mounted without reflectors or diffusers. This allows for more varied lighting designs.

"OLED technology is at a premium relative to LED, but there are superior lighting quality benefits," said Jeannine Fisher Wang, director of business development and marketing for Acuity's  OLED group. "The overall design and construction of these luminaires is very high quality, reflective of the superior nature of the OLED light source."

These bulbs have the lifespan of about 30,000 to 40,000 hours of use, which is more than quadruple what a florescent bulb can do.
