LG is following up its successful release of its Signature OLED W7 TVs for the consumer market (it was the most-awarded TV at CES) with an OLED Wallpaper commercial display at Digital Signage Expo (DSE) 2017 in Las Vegas.
Actually, LG's DSE 2017 lineup is chock full of OLED. The company is showing its OLED Wallpaper, OLED video wall displays and OLED Open Frame displays as well as its Dual-View Flat and Curved Tiling models — both OLED, of course.
The proprietary LG OLED technology is designed to deliver perfect blacks, thanks to its ability to turn each pixel on or completely off instead of simply dimming it. It also promises incredible color, even from wide viewing angles, and an infinite contrast ratio.
“LG OLED commercial displays empower business owners with the best picture quality on the market,” says Clark Brown, digital signage vice president, LG. “Building on the success of our Dual-View Flat and Curved-Tiling commercial LG OLED displays, our new, high-end Wallpaper and Open Frame LG OLED solutions not only expand our award-winning lineup, but also provide even greater creative installation flexibility, making them perfect for nearly any digital signage environment.”
LG OLED Wallpaper
LG's 55-inch display weighs less than 13 pounds and is razor thing at a mere 0.14 inches. The display can be mounted either vertically or horizontally for a customizable display design. Ultra-slim mounting brackets with a magnetic mat aim to make the Wallpaper “one with the wall,” according to LG.
Electronic components are housed in a separate control box connected to the display with a 6.5-foot cable.
LG says the OLED Wallpaper offers a Full HD picture (1920 x 1080) and ultra-fast motion-picture response time. The display also offers 64GB of internal memory, content mirroring capabilities, content scheduling and Wi-Fi connectivity through the use of a Wi-Fi USB dongle for ease of installation and end-user operation.
Also on display in the U.S. for the first time at DSE 2017 is the “In-Glass Wallpaper” LG OLED digital signage display. Designed with dual-sided ultra-slim OLED panels in a glass pane, the In-Glass Wallpaper LG OLED display is a good fit for boutiques, art galleries and other businesses that want to add a little sophisticated tech to their décor. The In-Glass Wallpaper LG OLED solution will be available in standing and hanging versions to provide businesses flexible options.
The OLED Wallpaper will ship to the U.S. in the next month.
LG OLED Video Wall
The company says the OLED Video Wall displays feature “limitless color contrast and perfect black levels never before seen in a video wall, with a razor-thin profile.”
The display features a 4K UHD resolution, a 16:9 aspect ratio and wide viewing angles. When tiled together, the displays can create an eye-catching video wall display for spaces like museums, airport lounges and high-end retail environments.
New this year, the 65-inch LG OLED Video Wall display is planned for initial U.S. availability in May.
Open Frame LG OLED Digital Signage
LG OLED technology uses self-lighting pixels for better control of image brightness and quality. With no separate light source, the technology is designed to be lightweight, thin and flexible.
These Open Frame displays are able to flex concave and convex for a customizable approach.
Dual-View Curved Tiling LG OLED Displays
The Dual-View Curved Tiling OLED displays offer a curved design using slim tiles to form customizable displays that link combinations of two to eight tiles together.
The 65-inch portrait display boasts a depth about 1/3rd inch. It has a dual-sided view to offer customers a two-sided experience while providing retailers a way to utilize their space efficiently.
Each screen delivers 4K Ultra HD resolution (3840 x 2160), system-on-a-chip (SoC) and a 128GB internal memory capacity. This, LG says, enables UHD-synced playback without the need for PCs or media players.
Dual-View Flat LG OLED Display
The Dual-View Flat LG OLED display also offers a space-efficient dual-sided view to provide customers a two-sided media experience in full HD (1920 x 1080).
With an even slimmer depth, measuring less than 1/3rd inch and three different installation options, this 55-inch flat OLED commercial display allows retailers to plan an efficient layout.
Additionally, the display has the unique ability to swap and mirror content on either side of the screen with the press of a remote control button. The screen can be installed in three customizable ways – ceiling suspension, wall-mount and floor stand — to allow the most efficient use in any retail space.
