At CES 2019, LG display was more of the Signature Series OLED TV R, a 65-inch television that rolls up from a brushed aluminium base. Then at CES 2020, the technology giant will unveil the latest iteration of its rollable TV line, a 65-inch, UHD OLED display that rolls down from the ceiling.
LG says the television screen “will be pulled down whenever a user wants and rolled up when it’s not in use.” This will help maximize space in living rooms.
LG Director of New Product Development Tim Alessi told CNET that the changes weren’t as simple as flipping a roll-up TV upside-down.
“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.”
We aren’t sure yet what LG wants to do in other to resolve the ceiling-height issue, but, it’s possible that they will be clarifying issues at CES 2020 which will happen very soon.
LG will be showing off a lot of new products including a series of 55-inch OLED video walls for aeroplane cabins; a 55-inch Full HD Transparent OLED display that will act as an aisle partition and screen; and then a 65-inch UHD Bendable OLED screen that’s flexible at both ends, which the company said is designed specially for the first-class people.
There’s also the 88-inch 8K Cinematic Sound OLED display with an 11.2 channel system, and the 77-inch UHD Film Cinematic Sound and Wallpaper OLED with a wafer-thin screen.
Then, in automotive tech, LG will display its Plastic OLED displays in different sizes. For commercial spaces, LG will show its interactive in-TOUCH displays, with an 86-inch LCD screen that acts as an electronic whiteboard, which has the ability to read four pens at the same time.
LG will also come with an indoor vegetable cultivator and AI-driven soundbars to the CES 2020, which is one of the few products it didn’t want to show until the CES 2020 show day.
