Although LG has been showing transparent OLED displays for nearly a year, LG Business Solutions officially launched the LG transparent OLED digital signage displays in the United States this week at InfoComm 2019. Available for the first time starting this month, this razor-thin see-through display is designed to deliver a unique customer experience in specialized commercial applications, particularly retail and hospitality.
With the LG transparent OLED, watching video on the screen is augmented by seeing objects and images behind the screen. The versatile 55-inch class display (model 55EW5F) delivers LG OLED’s unrivaled picture quality while maintaining high transparency, much more than traditional transparent LCD displays.
The installation and application versatility of LG Transparent OLED displays is being featured at InfoComm. In LG’s booth, six transparent displays make up a dramatic video wall in a 2×3 landscape mode configuration; 2×2 portrait mode displays also are being demonstrated. Another highlight is a touch version of the 55-inch LG Transparent OLED allowing the user to interact with content on an LG OLED video wall behind the transparent display.
Welcoming visitors to LG’s sprawling InfoComm booth is the LG OLED Falls exhibit that offers a unique, immersive installation of eye-popping, open frame commercial OLED displays. Open frame LG OLED displays enable a fresh approach for innovative and flexible digital signage designs. With no separate light source, the displays are extremely thin and lightweight (under 30 pounds), and flexible enough to be bent at the installation site — now with an increased curvature rate for both landscape and portrait configurations.
To help system integrators with their custom open frame OLED projects, LG has introduced the new “Curvature Calibrator.” LG will train the integrator on how to operate the calibrator to get the desired convex and concave curvatures, depending on the projects requirements.
LG OLED technology is a high-end category of displays that delivers an awe-inspiring picture with perfect blacks and incredible color, even from wide viewing angles. OLED uses self-lighting pixels that can be turned on and off individually for exact control of image brightness and quality, delivering infinite contrast ratios optimized for high-dynamic range content.
