By Satarupa Chakraborty - November 23, 2015
LG Electronics, the world's leading OLED TV manufacturer, unveiled two of the largest OLED displays in the world at South Korea's Incheon International Airport. LG worked closely with the renowned French design firm Wilmotte & AssociÃ©s to develop the massive structure walls which adorn the main terminal of the award-winning airport with an aim to introduce a large number of travellers to the magic of OLED.
Each sign is composed of 140 55-inch curved OLED panels, resulting in displays that stands 13 meters high and 8 meters across, equivalent to three large-sized shipping containers. The two curved displays feature a variety of content to demonstrate the capabilities of OLED technology, such as brilliant fireworks set against a night sky. There is also a unique technology associated using every pixel in an OLED display emitting its own light, resulting into no need for heavy LED backlighting. This technology is also making both of the airport displays incredibly light and flexible allowing them to hang from the ceiling with minimal support.
"These OLED displays perfectly complement the advanced technology that our airport has become known for,â€ 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.â€
Ro Se-Yong, Senior Vice President and Head of the business-to-business solutions at LG Electronics, exclaimed, "The magic of OLED can't be explained but only be experienced. 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.â€
