LG Electronics rolls out the first rollable OLED TV.
The ‘LG Signature OLED TV R’ was on display at CES 2019, the world’s largest IT exhibition in Las Vegas.
The screen does not use back lights reducing the thickness to the point where the screen can be rolled up and down much like projector canvas backdrop. The LG Signature OLED TV R has three viewing forms: aside from the ‘Full View’, and ‘Zero View’ (rolled up state), its ‘Line View’ allows for a partial screen display.
Despite being rolled up inside its housing, Zero View allows audio with 4.2 channel 100W speakers.
LG’s new TV received the ‘CES 2019 Innovation Awards’ in Video Display.
Sales will start in South Korea and gradually expand to global markets.
“We are going to show the essence of display evolution through rollable OLED TV for the first time in the world.”
President Kwon Bong-seok of LG Electronics’ MC (Mobile Communication) and Home Entertainment (HE).
