The world’s leading panel maker LG Display Co. unveiled next-generation display technology at the four-day Society for Information Display (SID) conference that kicked off on Tuesday (local time) at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California, the United States.

According to the company on Tuesday, it will present its cutting-edge display technologies in three areas - organic light emitting diodes (OLED) TVs, information technology (IT) and mobile displays, and automotive displays - in its booth at the conference.

LG Display will present its 77-inch Ultra High Definition (UHD) wallpaper OLED TV panel that is thin as paper and boasts high image quality. The panel has maximized design efficiency as it is slim and light enough to be put on the wall. Along with the 77-inch UHD wallpaper OLED TV display, the company will also showcase its 65-inch UHD wallpaper TV panel that was released last year and was selected as the “Display of the Year Award” at this year’s SID conference.

Other advanced display technologies by LG Display include its 65-inch UHD Crystal Sound OLED that brings sound directly from the panel and its 55-inch full HD (FHD) transparent display.

LG Display aims to move ahead its competitors by applying its in-Touch technology that embeds touch sensors inside of a LCD cell to 24-inch and larger monitor panels. At its booth, the company will also present the world’s largest 37.5-inch curved monitor panel with a 21:9 screen aspect ratio that maximizes viewing experience, as well as its 32-inch 8K monitor panel that offers life-like high resolution images.

Its biggest rival Samsung Display Co. also announced yesterday that it would demonstrate the most advanced flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panel technology, so-called stretchable panels, at the same conference. The company claimed its stretchable display technology is the first of its kind in the world.
