AUTHOR: Inavate

Samsung has demonstrated a 14” transparent OLED display, building on its 4.3” model unveiled last year. Read on for video content.

The Korean electronics giant showed off its largest transparent OLED screen, incorporated in a computer monitor, at this year’s CES. The company mooted multiple options for the technology’s commercial development including displays on car windscreens that allow drivers to visualise satellite navigation or dashboard information such as speed or mileage.

The prototype screen boasts 40 per cent transparency and Samsung says the technology is still in a research and development stage.

The company also predicts corporate applications for the transparent OLED panels, envisaging their use in dividing partitions in offices, allowing employees to view multiple documents electronically. This idea could be extended to encompass videoconferencing solutions.
