LG showcases 18-in ‘rollable’ screen

LG flexible 18-in display

LG’s 18-in flexible display will be on show at this week’s CES in Las Vegas. The Korean manufacturer will showcase the concept 30R display that it says can be rolled up like a newspaper alongside a 55-in paper-thin OLED TV and a pair of 65-in “extreme-curve” concave and convex OLED displays. The company was able to achieve the extremely thin unit by housing its electronics separately.

OLED products specifically for the commercial sector will also be exhibited including a 55-in double-sided display that shows different video images on each side and a 139-in Vertical Tiling OLED (VTO) display that comprises eight double-sided 65-in OLED panels connected in an S-shape.

The company’s 86-in stretched LCD display is also tipped for use in the commercial space with its 58:9 aspect ration lending it to applications in airports, commercial and retail. Also on show will be a videowall comprising LG’s 55-in units that deliver a bezel of 0.9mm. 

In a written statement, Dr. Sang-Beom Han, vice chairman and CEO of LG Display, said: “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 will be exhibiting at ISE 2016 on stand 11-K70 at the Amsterdam RAI, February 9 to 12.
