Incorporating the latest OLED display technology, the Metz Novum OLED TV delivers a brand new watching experience. TV sets that deploy OLED technology guarantee the best picture quality available. The technology does away with the backlight, as each pixel is independent from the other in terms of light and shading, yielding an incomparable screen display contrast, visual angle and movement-picture response when compared to LCD TVs. Combining the UHD 3D OLED screen and 10bit color, HDR and 2000Hz MetzVision technologies, the product creates the ultimate viewing experience.

In addition to outstanding picture quality, the Metz Novum OLED TV includes an unbeatable 80W audio system comprised of a wooden chamber and four fully active speakers that can be separately controlled. The audio system delivers brilliant medium-frequency and strong low-frequency sound, assuring a more than satisfying listening experience for the discerning listener. Novum can be connected to mobile devices via Bluetooth wireless technology. Supported by a high-quality APTX audio codec, an enjoyable wireless music experience is assured. In addition to the audio system, Metz Novum OLED TV maintains all the traditional advantages of the brand, including the unique Metz Tri-Star operating concept, dual multi-tuners and 1TB digital recorder, creating a premium, flagship TV product.

Novum, the first OLED TV launched by METZ, became an immediate hit upon roll out, reflecting the "two highs" of German-made products - high use value and high technology content. Commenting on receiving the Plus X Award, Dr. Norbert Kotzbauer, CEO of METZ, said, "The award is an absolute honor which proves that Novum is worthy of a flagship TV. We are proud of the award which demonstrates the quality of our German-made products and the superiority of the new OLED display technology, which will help us win the market."
