OLED will bring revolution to people’s lives LG Display CEO tells IFA 2015
Dr. Sang Beom Han, CEO and President of LG Display, the world’s leading innovator of display technologies, said today that OLED represents a revolutionary leap in display technology that will change people’s lives as he delivered the opening keynote speech at IFA 2015 in Berlin. Dr. Han told the audience that OLED is the only technology that overcomes the limitations of conventional displays because it offers enhanced reality combined with dynamic form. OLED offers superior light and color expression because it is based on self-emitting light sources. Its flexibility and its transparent nature are the result of the development of innovative OLED materials. These essential attributes mean OLED can bring to reality what has only been imagined until now.
Although LG Display has chosen a difficult path in pioneering OLED technology, Dr. Han said the company is proud in achieving the goal of making a display that realizes people’s imagination and dreams. He predicted that OLED has a bright future because of the convergence of different technology sectors, with the participation of outside partners benefiting from OLED’s growth.LG Display presented several OLED prototypes at IFA keynote event. The company introduced a 111-inch “wave” double-sided display(Vertical Tiling OLED), made out of three attached 65-inch Ultra HD OLED displays.
LG Display also showed a 55-inch double-sided commercial display with a thickness of approximately 5.3mm, which is thinner than the latest smartphone, and weighing only 12 kilograms, making it suitable to be shown in a variety of locations. In addition, the company presented a 55-inch “wallpaper” OLED display with a thickness of less than 1 millimeter that can instantly be attached to and removed from walls because of its magnetic backing.
Referred as “The Father of OLED,” Dr. Ching W. Tang, a professor at the University of Rochester in New York and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology; Prof. Dr. Peter Zec, founder and president of the Red Dot Design Award; and Udo Heider, Vice President of Merck, the global chemical and materials company, made appearances during the keynote presentation and stressed the possibilities that OLED offers of turning imagination into reality.
