LG Display Showcases Cutting-Edge OLED Technologies at SID Display Week 2024

  • 18-May-2024

The world's foremost innovator in display technologies, LG Display, said today that SID Display Week 2024, to be held in San Jose, California from May 14–16, will include a significant number of its next-generation OLED and cutting-edge display technologies.

Under the theme "A Better Future," LG Display is introducing new OLED technologies to visitors. These include car display solutions that are designed for Software Defined Vehicles (SDV), large-sized OLED panels that surpass picture quality limitations, and OLEDoS for VR.

Among the most recent breakthroughs from the firm is OLEDoS for VR, a new technology that is being demonstrated to the public for the first time and has far higher screen brightness and resolution than the current standard. Its 1.3-inch size makes it coin-sized, but it manages an ultra-high brightness of 10,000 nits and an ultra-high resolution of about 4,000 ppi, which is in the 4K class. Furthermore, it achieves color expression accuracy by satisfying over 97% of the DCI-P3 standard color space of the Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI). With the best possible picture quality in the industry, all of them allow for more realistic virtual reality.

Using OLED placed on a silicon wafer substrate, OLEDoS is gaining popularity as a high definition AR and VR delivery method even for small-scale applications. In order to improve the viewer's sense of immersion when outside light is obstructed, VR displays in particular need to have screens that are brighter and more detailed than standard displays.

The company's Micro Lens Array (MLA), which increases light emittance, is combined with a recently developed high-performance OLED element in OLEDoS for VR to improve brightness by around 40% when compared to the standard level.

By enabling a layer of minuscule convex lenses, which are imperceptible to the human eye, to emit light that would have previously been lost due to internal reflection in the panel, MLA increases brightness.

Additionally, LG Display is showcasing OLEDoS for smartwatches—the first of its kind. With its 1.3-inch size and 4K resolution, information can be clearly seen even on the wrist. Additionally, it has light field technology, a 3D technique that doesn't require glasses and produces holographic-like visuals.

Additionally, the company is showcasing its unmatched leadership in large-sized OLEDs during SID Display Week 2024 by showcasing 83-inch OLED TV and gaming OLED panels. LG Display's META Technology 2.0, which produces images 42% brighter than those from traditional OLEDs, is featured in both of these devices. META Technology 2.0 achieves 3,000 nits, the highest brightness level among current OLED TV panels, which is one of the essential components of picture quality.

The performance of META Technology 2.0 is supported by MLA+, which consists of 42.4 billion micro lenses, and the META Multi-Booster and Detail Enhancer display enhancement algorithms. When combined, they enable the realistic and vivid representation of a wide range of natural hues and brightness in any setting, just as if observed with human eyes.

A 27-inch 480 Hz QHD Gaming OLED screen from LG Display is also available for viewing by guests. With incredibly smooth and crisp screen transitions in fast-paced games, this is the first OLED display with a 480 Hz refresh rate, making for the best possible gaming experience.

A 39-inch Ultra-Wide Gaming OLED panel is also being displayed by the company. By offering the same viewing distance from the center and edges of the screen, its 21:9 ratio screen with a curvature of 800R—roughly the curve of a circle with a radius of 800mm—maximizes immersion.

Moreover, LG Display is showcasing automotive display solutions designed for SDVs, such as LTPS LCDs and high-definition OLEDs for automobiles, which are the business's unique innovations. Compared to conventional glass substrate OLEDs, Advanced Thin OLEDs (ATO) for automobiles are 20% thinner. This preserves the outstanding image quality of OLEDs while enabling a streamlined form and raising price competitiveness.

Tandem OLED technology, which LG Display created as a first for the industry in 2019, is another feature of its OLEDs for cars. Tandem OLED, which stacks two organic light-emitting layers, outperforms the one-layer norm in terms of durability, brightness, and lifespan.

Concurrently, the business unveiled a Glassless 3D Dashboard built on high-performance LTPS LCDs that optimizes a driver's visual fulfillment.

Another innovation on display at LG Display's San Jose booth is the ability to optimize the pixel structure and working components of Transparent OLEDs, increasing their transparency from 45% to 60%.

"By means of continuous research and development, we will keep introducing cutting-edge products that can offer new value to customers and bolstering our technological leadership," stated Soo-young Yoon, CTO and Executive Vice President of LG Display.
