LG debuts the world’s largest OLED display
OLED TV manufacturer LG Electronics recently completed the installation of signage at the Incheon International Airport in South Korea that utilized the company’s OLED displays. LG said the installation, which was supported by French design firm Wilmotte & Associates, resulted in two of the largest OLED displays in the world.
Each sign is comprised of 140 55-inch curved OLED panels, which come together to form a structure 13 meters high and eight meters across, equivalent to the size of three large shipping containers, according to LG. The curved displays will show a variety of content designed to show off the capabilities of OLED technology, such as bright fireworks against a night sky.
“These OLED displays perfectly complement the advanced technology that our airport has become known for,” Park Wan-su, president and CEO at Incheon International Airport, said in a statement. “We are always eager to showcase to the millions of travelers every year the cutting-edge technology that originates from Korea. OLED is a prime example of that.”
LG Electronics Senior Vice President and head of B2B solutions Ro Se-yong added: “While the world’s largest OLED sign is certainly something to be proud of, we are more excited about the opportunity to introduce travelers from across the world to the magic of OLED.”
LG explained that because every pixel in an OLED display emits its own light, there is no need for heavy LED backlighting, which makes both of the airport displays “light and flexible.” This allows them to hang from the ceiling with minimal support.
