During a year ago’s CES, LG exhibited the Signature OLED R — a TV that folds into a base unit and spreads out into an entire 68-inch 4K HDR OLED panel when required. This year, the South Korean gadgets goliath is taking things a notch higher and demoing two new TV innovations in front of CES.
The first of these is the thing that LG calls the “Bendable Cinematic Sound OLED (CSO) display”. This is a 48-inch OLED panel, which can adapt to a 1,000R curvature without influencing any of its functionality or characteristics. LG says that the display can be straightened for TV viewing and curved while gaming. The curvature is with the end goal that it offers a uniform viewing distance from the middle to the edge for a vivid viewing experience.
As indicated by LG, this TV sports a response time of 0.1 ms and a 120 Hz refresh rate with variable refresh rate support from 40 Hz to 120 Hz. The organization didn’t determine the resolution, however it is a lot of prone to be a 4K panel. Being a CSO screen, the whole OLED panel basically is a speaker too while just being 0.6 mm thick.
Aside from the bendable CSO display concept, LG will likewise flaunt 55-inch transparent OLED displays at the current year’s CES. During the event, LG — the lone transparent OLED maker — will demo a few applications for such displays including utilizing them for both home and commercial purposes. For example, the TV’s frame can be set at the foot of a bed, used as a see-through panel while ordering food, or even as a smart window on a subway train.
Data on the transparent OLED panel can be shown in a few aspect ratios, so just the necessary extent of the TV should be spread out. Ideally, LG has moderated some of the pitfalls of transparent display panels including poor contrast and black levels. The organization guarantees that its OLED technology is 40% transparent contrasted with simply 10% transparency offered by LCDs. Like the bendable TV concept, the transparent OLED TV likewise includes CSO and totally avoids physical speakers.
