LD Transparent OLED achieves a transparency of 38% in a wide viewing angle
LG Business Solutions has created what it described as a razor-thin display designed to deliver a unique customer experience in specialised commercial applications such as retail and hospitality. Watching video on the LG Transparent OLED is enhanced by seeing objects and images behind the screen. LD Transparent OLED reportedly achieves a transparency of 38% in a wide viewing angle. LG’s OLED technology features self-lighting pixels that are said to maintain accurate and vivid colours even when the display becomes transparent. The pixels can be turned on and off individually to control image brightness and quality. The 55-inch class display (55EW5F) has a native resolution of 1,920x1,080 full HD and can operate in temperatures from 0–40°C and humidity of 10–80%.
LG has also unveiled several new technologies and product ranges in recent months. MicroLED technology relies on arrays of microscopic LEDs that form individual pixels that work independently to increase the detail of the image. LG reports that there is no colour distortion and no bezel. Each LED measures less than 50 micrometres, around half the width of a human hair.
The LAPE series uses a specially designed flexible LED display module that supports true concave and convex curvature up to 1000R. The products include LG’s Dynamic Contrast Algorithm to reportedly provide a wide range of colour and deep contrast. A new 130-inch LED screen, meanwhile, forms part of the LAAF series and features embedded speakers and AV connections and is compatible with partners such as Crestron and Cisco. Finally, the LAT series provides various form factors and aspect ratios. The 24mm pixel pitch LED film offers over 1,000 nits of brightness, is 2mm thin and can be installed on most existing glass, plexiglass and other transparent surfaces.
