K-Display, the largest display exhibition in Korea, welcomed thousands of visitors to Seoul’s COEX Convention & Exhibition Center between August 10 and 12. Recognized as the place to learn the latest display information, technology trends and market status, this exhibition was bustling with people eager to experience the displays that will one day transform our lives.

The LG Display booth was made up of three zones: OLED.EX Town, Transparent OLED Town, and OLED Plaza under the company’s exhibition theme, ‘A City Inspired by OLED.’ The futurist space presented attendees with the unique opportunity to discover a future city landscape thorugh various cutting-edge OLED solutions. We proudly invite you to look around the innovative future city portrait LG Display and OLED depicted.

The first of the three zones, OLED.EX Town, revealed the complete OLED.EX lineup including 97-inch OLED.EX, the largest OLED panel in history, and the small-medium sized 48-inch and 42-inch OLED.EX panels. With deuterium enhancing the stability of light emission and ‘personalized algorithms’ optimizing picture quality by learning individual viewing patterns, OLED.EX is the fruit of LG Display’s most advanced technologies.

OLED.EX’s edge comes from its 30%-boosted brightness levels, sheer perfect images created by original colors and texture without distortion, and perfect black. The benefits of OLED.EX go way beyond picture quality though, as it also protects the audience’s eyes by minimizing harmful blue light while boasting an elegant form topped off by its thickness – 30% thinner than conventional panels.

The newly-released 97-inch OLED uses Film CSO (Cinematic Sound OLED) technology to create sound directly from the display instead of external speakers, for an irresistible viewing and listening experience of via a 5.1 channel sound system and crystal-clear images.

Transparent OLED Town: The Most Complete Transparent Lineup Ever

Now it’s time to turn our gaze to the ‘Transparent OLED Town,’ where LG Display demonstrated how its Transparent OLED solutions fit in anywhere – shops, workplaces, you name it. Transparent OLED allows business to showcase their products while overlaying information and imagery.

Transparent Media Art Wall uses 16 Transparent OLED displays to create a huge digital canvas for visual content while flawlessly matching any interior with its glass appearance. It works as a state-of-the-art device and elegant piece of furniture at the same time, opening a new chapter of ‘techniture’ (a mix of tech and furniture). With its seamless Transparent OLED integration and sophisticated wooden stand, Transparent Showcase maximizes the advertisement effect by simultaneously showing products and information/visual effects.

Transparent Wall Skin, a Transparent OLED-equipped modular panel, can be attached and detached from the wall with ease. Its simple and easy installation process means it can be moved from one place to another with ease, which is a major reason why it’s being utilized in healthcare facilities, workplaces and hotels. Transparent OLED Solution for Conference Room, aka E-Crystal, is the final solution shown.
