With the appearance of large OLED panels, the OLED TV industry has experienced significant growth. However, this technology is still in the early stages of commercialization, and some technical challenges remain to be overcome. During the development phase of a product, power consumption is one of the most important considerations. To reduce power consumption in OLED displays, we propose a method based on just-noticeable difference (JND). JND refers to the minimum visibility threshold when visual content is altered and results from physiological and psychophysical phenomena in the human visual system (HVS). A JND model suitable for OLED displays is derived from numerous experiments with OLED displays. With the use of JND, it is possible to reduce power consumption while minimizing perceptual image quality degradation.
