Electronic device lovers who have attended CES 2019 would very well be able to recollect the star electronic display that was put up. Well, the main attraction that time was the Signature Series OLED TV R, whose screen measured about 65 inches. This screen could actually roll out and then roll back into its aluminum base. Well, this year, the event could again have some extraordinary display of electronics. LG plans to showcase the final series of its rollable TV unit.
LG plans to display a 65-inch UHD OLED display TV unit, in which the TV screen can roll down from the ceiling. According to LG, one can roll down the screen whenever necessary and then, later on, roll it back once the purpose is completed. This type of electronic gadget can end up saving a lot of space. It can actually be accommodated in compact areas, thereby minimizing space usage.
Though this entire scenario of TV screen rolling down from the ceiling may not sound very complicated, it is definitely not very simple. Director of LG Tim Alessi, who is responsible for New Product Development had made a statement last January saying,
“The first model of rollable OLED was designed to roll up only. Even if a professional were to figure out a way to hang it from the ceiling, there is no mechanism to re-orient the picture, so it would appear upside down. It’s also likely that mounting it from an 8-foot ceiling would result in the panel being too high for comfortable viewing anyway.”Source
So far, there is no information with regards to how LG has sorted out this entire ceiling and height problem. A lot of doubts regarding is would be cleared, and all necessary clarifications can be obtained at the CES 2020 that is likely to be held next week at Las Vegas.
Other devices that are likely to be showcased
Apart from this rollable TV screen from the ceiling, LG plans to unveil three other gadgets – all specially designed for planes. One of them is a series of 55-inch OLED video walls that can be used within the airplane cabin. The other one is a 55-inch Full HD Transparent OLED display that can be used as a partition between the aisles as well as a screen. The third one is a 65-inch UHD Bendable OLED screen that is designed to be flexible at both ends. This has been created specifically for the first-class cabin of a flight.
Apart from all of the above, there is something else for grounded consumers. One of them is an 8K Cinematic Sound OLED display measuring 88 inches. This one also comes with an 11.2 channel system. Then there is a system having a 77-inch UHD Film Cinematic Sound and Wallpaper OLED. The screen of this system is as thin as a wafer. Both of these display systems have sound systems embedded within them. During the automotive tech, LG plans to showcase all of its Plastic OLED displays coming in varying sizes.
LG has something for commercial spaces too. It has introduced interactive IN-TOUCH displays that have an 86-inch LCD screen. This screen can make up for an electronic whiteboard. The screen also has the ability to read four pens at a time.
In the past, LG had stated that it plans to get some non-display gadgets to the CES 2020 event. This includes an indoor vegetable cultivator that could aid newcomers in growing vegetables and soundbars that work with the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
