The world of OLED continues to get more exciting. LG Display has shared a press release detailing some of its latest OLED technologies that were on display at K-Display 2022, and one of the highlights is a new 97-inch OLED.EX TV panel—the biggest OLED TV panel ever made, according to the company. While that specification alone is exciting enough, what makes this panel doubly interesting is how it’s capable of producing 5.1 audio by vibrating and doesn’t need separate speakers to create sound thanks to a technology that the company has dubbed “Film CSO” (Cinematic Sound OLED). LG also teased new 42- and 48-inch OLED.EX panels, which might be of interest to users who are seeking new OLED options that have a better chance of fitting on their desks.

Here’s a roundup of the OLED products that LG touches upon in its press release below:

  • 97-inch OLED.EX, the biggest OLED TV panel ever made with Film CSO
  • 42 and 48-inch OLED.EX panels
  • Transparent Media Art Wall
  • Transparent Showcase
  • Transparent Wall Skin
  • Transparent OLED Solution for Conference Room
  • Transparent OLED integrated into a curved shelf
  • A wheeled portable OLED TV
  • Transparent Photo Wall
  • 34-inch Curved P-OLED
  • 17-inch Foldable Laptop OLED

SEOUL, Korea (Aug. 10, 2022) – LG Display, the world’s leading innovator of display technologies, announced today that it will demonstrate its cutting-edge OLED technologies at K-Display 2022, the KDIA’s (Korea Display Industry Association) largest display exhibition, in Seoul, Korea, between August 10 and August 12.

Under the slogan of ‘A city inspired by OLED,’ LG Display will unveil its visionary city of the future and unprecedented experiences made possible by its OLED solutions, such as OLED.EX and Transparent OLED. The company is running its largest-ever (320㎡) booth at K-Display which will incorporate three distinct zones: ‘OLED.EX Town,’ ‘Transparent OLED Town’ and ‘OLED Plaza.’ This expansive show space ensures every visitor gets the opportunity to fully experience the company’s innovative technologies in person.

The ‘OLED.EX Town’ zone presents the Korean debut of LG Display’s 97-inch OLED.EX, the biggest OLED TV panel ever made. This gigantic display not only delivers realistic colors, fine details and the perfect black, as well as enhancing brightness up to 30 percent with its deuterium and personalized algorithm-based ‘EX Technology.’

The newly-unveiled 97-inch OLED.EX display boasts the company’s special ‘Film CSO (Cinematic Sound OLED)’ technology, which allows the display to vibrate and generate the sound directly from the display without separate speakers. A 5.1 channel sound system is embedded into the widescreen, creating a performance that offers a cinematic level of immersion.

In addition, the 42 and 48-inch OLED.EX panels for gaming add to LG Display’s powerful lineup of small-medium to extra-large OLED products.

The ‘Transparent OLED Town’ zone highlights LG Display’s brand-new Transparent OLED solutions for various locations, including workspaces and stores, by providing novel experiences guaranteed to fascinate attendees.

Transparent Media Art Wall utilizes sixteen Transparent OLED displays organized and attached in a tile-like manner to the wall to show diverse content like digital artwork or commercial videos. Its clear appearance lets it harmonize with different interiors while its ability to generate less heat than LEDs makes it ideal to be placed against a wall.

Transparent Showcase, which combines a Transparent OLED display and a high-end wooden stand, can simultaneously show products and related information or visuals to maximize the impact of the advertisement.

Transparent Wall Skin is a Transparent OLED-equipped modular panel readily attached to the wall. Because of its simple installation process, the special OLED panel can easily be attached and detached to be used around offices, hotels, healthcare and homes.

Transparent OLED Solution for Conference Room, also known as E-Crystal, is a glass wall equipped with Transparent OLED panels that works as a TV or monitor. It boosts space utilization by freeing up the space that would be taken by separate displays, while its glass-like transparency when not in use makes the room feel much more open.

The ‘OLED Plaza’ zone introduces four OLED TV concept products designed through the company’s global design contests and academic partnerships, such as a Transparent OLED integrated into a curved shelf and a wheeled portable OLED TV. The zone also includes the Transparent Photo Wall, which consists of nine 55-inch Transparent OLED panels arranged 3×3 in a square to generate eye-catching hologram-like visuals.

Additionally, the company’s 34-inch Curved P-OLED, the largest automotive display of its kind, and 17-inch Foldable Laptop OLED, which can be used for tablets or portable monitors, are also being showcased at the exhibition.

  1. Kind of a cool concept that you can create surround sound that way, but compared to a good 5.1 or 7.1 receiver, is it any good?
    I've never heard built-in sound beat a receiver, even a lower-tier one. Some lower end sound bars are junk - but most middling-to-great sound bars will also beat every single built-in sound I've ever heard from a TV.

    That said, I've never heard this, but I think Sony has had something similar in their top-tier panels for a while now. No one ever spoke about how great it sounded.

    If you are affording a 97" OLED TV - the "speaker" is just a gimmick to help qualify the price - you can certainly afford at least a decent sound bar to go with it. If not an actual no kidding high end Home Theater setup.

    That's always been my process too. If you are considering spending thousands of dollars on a screen, are you really going to use built in speakers? You probably have a plan for a HT receiver as well.

    So, why even put speakers in high end TV's?

    I still wish I could buy the highest of the high end display panels with excellent clarity and fantastic darks, but without any of the superflous crap like speakers or "smart" functionality. I'd rather provide my own inputs and sound outputs.
