LG Display will showcase the future of display technology, including its OLED panels, at the Society for Information Display’s (SID) Display Week 2014 from June 3 to June 5 at the San Diego Convention Center.
LThe company will showcase line-ups of curved Ultra HD OLED and LCD TV panels, along with high-definition IT and mobile panel products and commercial display panels.
On exhibit will be 55-inch, 65-inch and 77-inch Ultra HD curved OLED TV panels.
Also on view will be 65-inch and 105-inch Ultra HD curved LCD TV panels based on IPS technology that achieve wide viewing angles without color distortion when viewed from the side. LG Display’s curved Ultra HD TV panels are equipped with its flagship FPR 3D technology to provide viewers with dynamic 3D images four times sharper than Full HD panels.
The company will also showcase a Quad HD panel for mobile devices. With 2,560×1,440 pixels and with a pixel density of 491ppi, LG Display’s Quad HD panel offers significantly sharper images. In addition, a 34-inch WQHD monitor and a 13.3-inch Quad HD display for notebook PCs will be on show.
The head of the company recently revealed in an interview that panels with a density of 600 pixels per inch could be created soon, with 700ppi smartphone panels also possible.
In addition, LG Display will unveil for the first time a 98-inch Ultra HD LCD for interactive whiteboards, which enables users to see the contents on the screen in daylight without adjusting lighting.
LG Display will also present future commercial displays, including a 47-inch transparent display, a video art wall, and a 47-inch outdoor display. The 47-inch transparent display boasts three times more transparency than existing products with a 17 percent penetration ratio, while the video art wall consists of four 55-inch panels with a 3.5mm thin bezel.
"LG Display has become the global display leader as shown by developing many of the world’s first products that incorporate IPS, FPR 3D and OLED technologies and we will continue to do our best in being the world’s leader in next-generation technology," said Sang-Deog Yeo, LG Display’s Chief Technical Officer and Executive Vice President.
LG Display will also deliver six presentations on OLED panel technology, including three invited technical papers. The papers aill be related to the development of commercial flexible AMOLEDs, advanced technologies for Large-sized OLED TVs, the technological progress of panel design and the compensation methods for large Ultra HD OLED TVs.
Unlike Korean rival Samsung Electronics, which derives over 70% of its operating profit by selling mobile phones, LG is losing money on its smartphone business, and its TV unit is serving as a crucial profit generator.
LG believes that OLEDs can help breathe new life into TV demand, since the flexibility of the panels - they don?t need a backlight and are thus much more bendable than common LCDs - allows sets in all sorts of shapes, which can be bent and rolled.
