LG made a name for itself at last year’s CES with its wireless OLED display OLED M. In parallel, transparent OLED displays have been shown on several occasions. Now these technologies are coming together with the wireless transparent OLED T.
The LG OLED T is the manufacturer’s answer to the increasingly larger and potentially more space-consuming TV. With its transparent OLED screen, it can more easily blend in with its surroundings, such as standing freely in the room or in front of windows without being obtrusive. The new TV was unveiled by Frank Lee, Director of Marketing during LG’s press conference at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
LG OLED T – transparent OLED TV
The transparent screen can keep you updated with simple information (time, smart home info, etc.) or atmospheric wallpapers in standby, or transform into a full-fledged TV when you turn it on with the remote control. A black “canvas” is then lowered onto the back or inside of the OLED panel, allowing the TV to display high-contrast images.
The LG screen needs power, of course, but the video transmission itself is wireless using the same type of junction box used in the OLED M3.
The TV will be part of LG’s Signature series and will come in a screen size of 77 inches. Image processing is provided by LG’s new and powerful Alpha 11 processor with AI capabilities.
The OLED T can be free-standing, wall-mounted or wall-mounted. It can be further customized by adding standing or floating shelves on one or both sides of the screen. This allows the TV screen to blend even more inconspicuously into the interior.
The LG Signature OLED T is an incredible result of consumer-driven innovation, offering entirely new viewing experiences plus the picture quality and performance of our award-winning OLED technology,” said Park Hyoung-sei, President of LG Home Entertainment Company in a press release. “LG’s transparent OLED gives customers greater freedom in their homes, completely redefines what’s possible and points the way to an exciting future for the TV industry.”
Pricing, specifications and availability in Europe are still too early to say, but LG’s OLED TV is certainly a fresh take on an exciting direction for TV entertainment! We can’t wait to take a closer look at it.
