LG to demo 'bendable' OLED display at CES 2021

LG Display is to show the world's first 48-in Bendable Cinematic Sound OLED (CSO) display at CES 2021.

The display offers the ability to switch between a flat screen and a curved screen at the press of a button.

The 48-inch Bendable CSO display uses OLED’s advantages as its paper-thin screen bends and unfolds with a curvature radius of up to 1,000R, meaning that it can be made to bend up to a radius of 1,000mm without affecting the function of the display. 

Audio is achieved using a 0.6mm 'ultra thin film exciter' integrated into the panel. The 48-inch Bendable CSO display’s ultra slim film exciter, which is the part that vibrates the display, has been reduced to a thickness of just 0.6mm from 9mm and therefore allows viewers to enjoy a thinner screen as well as highly impressive sound.

The OLED screen used is said to be VRR compatible with a range of 40 to 120Hz, with a response time of 0.1ms.

This initial screen is being aimed at the gaming market, but could certainly have applications for retail or visitor attractions or digital signage.
