LG shows its first OLED TV with Curved Screen at 2013 CES
LG today demonstrated its continued OLED TV market leadership with a revolutionary curved model, the EA9800, shown for the first time at the 2013 International CES. Featuring proprietary WRGB technology, the incredibly thin display features a dramatic curved design and a vivid picture quality that is practically indiscernible from colors found in nature. The unique new EA9800 model features the industry’s very first curved screen ergo-nomic design with full CINEMA 3D support. With a gentle inward flex, the entire screen surface is equidistant from the viewer’s eyes, removing the problem of screen-edge visual distortion and detail loss.
The 55-inch OLED TV also offers an infinite contrast ratio, which maintains optimal contrast levels regard-less of ambient brightness or viewing angle. To complement the infinite contrast ratio and enable the richest color and deepest black expression, the High Dynamic Range (HDR) algorithm has been incorporated. This technology also ensures contrast ratio consistency and maximum color separation.
The LG EA9800’s streamlined, ultra-modern design and curved screen re-move any hint of visual distraction to maximize the viewing experience. Carbon Fiber-Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) has been implemented to further reduce unit weight and add additional strength to the beautifully curved screen. A minimal bezel helps to produce a truly immersive 2D and 3D viewing experience. For installation versatility, the new model al-so ships with an easy-to-mount wall bracket that allows a single person to complete the entire installation. With less than a one-inch gap between wall and TV, LG’s design masterpiece can now be displayed like a true work of art. Availability and pricing of the curved OLED TV were not announced.
