LG shows off their big OLED display at Incheon International Airport
Have you wonder how big is a display made up of a total of 140 curved OLED panels? Well now you can see for yourself at the Incheon International Airport, South Korea. LG has worked closely with French design firm Wilmotte & Associés to develop this massive structure in the airport.
“These OLED displays perfectly complement the advanced technology that our airport has become known for,” said Park Wan-su, president and CEO at Incheon International Airport. “We are always eager to showcase to the millions of travellers every year the cutting-edge technology that originates from Korea. OLED is a prime example of that.”
This project consists of a total of 140 55″ curved OLED panels, resulting in a massive hanging display, 13 meters high and 8 meters across. The curved panels will feature a variety of content to demonstrate the capabilities of OLED technology.
Every pixel in an OLED displays emits its own light, so there’s no need for additional LED backlighting, thus making it lighter and more flexible, allowing them to hang from the ceiling with minimal support.
“While the world’s largest OLED sign is certainly something to be proud of, we are more excited about the opportunity to introduce travellers from across the world to the magic of OLED,” said Ro Se-yong, senior vice president and head of business-to-business solutions at LG Electronics. “The benefits of OLED technology can only be viewed; they cannot be described with mere words.”
