South Korea’s LG Display Co. is developing super-slim built-in OLED TV that emanates sound directly from the display panel in partnership with a local startup.
According to industry sources on Sunday, LG Display and Daejeon-based startup SQand Inc. have teamed up to explore the so-called Crystal Sound OLED (CSO) innovation that would put the display technology to a new level with the capacity to emit both light and sound.
LG Display has achieved proprietary CSO technology in 2016. It has joined up with SQand to incorporate the speaker-free display to an ultra-thin TV that can ensure high-quality picture plus sound at the frequency range of 180-35 kHz and sensitivity of 74 dB.
“If they can commercialize the technology, we would see entirely new built-in concept TV,” an industry observer said.
