LG has plans to invest nearly $9 billion on OLED technologies and when CES starts this week in Las Vegas the company promises that it wont be shy in showing off what it has come up with this year.
What is OLED Technology?
OLED, or organic light-emitting diodes, functions by putting electricity directly through certain materials that glow red, green and blue. It is largely viewed as the future in creating displays with color that is considerably more vibrant than either LCD or Plasma screens. The way OLED displays work allow for thinner and more flexible displays a number that LG plans to show off in Vegas beginning of Wednesdays.
LCD displays work by using color filters and liquid crystals that block light to create images; while plasma screens trigger pockets of gas that create the red, green and blue phosphors to create UV light.
LG’s planned OLED displays at CES
According to press release today, LG is looking to blow the minds of those in attendance with a number of different OLED offerings.
Dr. Sang-Beom Han, Vice Chairman & CEO of LG Display said, “LG Display has been sharing successful solutions with its customers by meeting the market’s requirements and demands with its differentiated technology. We will continue to offer differentiated values to the market and customers and strengthen the company’s leadership by responding quickly to trends in the expanding OLED market, including the fast-growing automotive and signage sectors, by offering various solutions.”
LG plans to split its showroom in half during CES 2016 in Las Vegas from January 6 to January 9. Half of the room will feature LCD products but expect traffic to gravitate towards its OLED offerings.
First lets get to the world’s first 30R 18-inch display that can be rolled up like a newspaper. Well, you’re just going to have to see it.
The company will also be showing a 55″ OLED TV that is not much thicker than a piece of paper owing to the fact that the circuits are installed separately from the display itself. It will also show off a pair of matching extreme-curve concave/convex 65″ OLED displays.
Additionally, the company plans to wow those visiting its showroom with a 65″ and 77″ UHD OLED TV panel that shows just what type of images OLEDs can produce when they include High Dynamic Range (HDR) that gives viewers “perfect” black and unbeatable luminance.
Lastly, LG will unveil it’s 55″ double-sided display that is capable of showing different images on each side.
