LG Display Unveils Latest in Public Display Technology at DSE 2012

It will showcase a 55-inch FPR 3D multi-vision panel boasting the world's narrowest bezel

Seoul, Korea (March 06, 2012) - LG Display, a leading manufacturer of thin-film transistor liquid crystal display, today announced that it will showcase state-of-the-art public display products, including a 55-inch FPR 3D multi-vision panel boasting the world's narrowest bezel, at Digital Signage Expo (DSE) 2012. The company's involvement at the show demonstrates its commitment to the fast emerging and high-growth potential public display market.

"Unlike the TV and IT display markets which have reached maturity and are slowing down, public display is rapidly growing with significant potential," said Mr. Joon Jun, Vice President and Head of LG Display's Public Display Division. "As a pioneer in public display, we plan to introduce an array of cutting edge technologies at DSE 2012, once again affirming our leadership in the field."

Public display is one of the most rapidly growing, high-growth potential and exciting markets in display technology today. According to DisplaySearch, the public display market is expected to grow over 50% to 3.2 million units in 2012 from 2.1 million units in 2011, marking a total volume of 6.9 million unit sales with an annual growth rate of 34% by 2015.

World's Narrowest Bezel to Bezel, 55-inch Multi-Vision Public Display with FPR 3D

LG Display's super narrow bezel 55-inch multi-vision public display panel with FPR 3D will be on exhibit at DSE 2012. Incorporating LG Display's widely acclaimed FPR 3D technology, the panel will give viewers a chance to enjoy an incredible 3D experience while out in public. FPR 3D represents a significant improvement over shutter glass (SG) 3D technology with no flicker, minimal cross talk and a brighter screen. Also, FPR glasses are made with curved lenses, like regular glasses, so are much lighter, cheaper and healthier than SG glasses.

The multi-vision panel is the world's narrowest public display with a large 165-inch multi-vision format featuring nine 55-inch LCD panels, and shape that can be easily customized via other panels. The super narrow bezel features an incredibly narrow 5.3 mm gap between the individual panels, resulting in seamless, life-like images.

Outdoor High-Brightness Solution with Fiber Optic Display

A 47-inch LED backlight LCD panel from LG Display will also be on display at the show. The panel utilizes a fiber optic display with 2000 nit high-brightness (five times brighter than a general TV) resulting in images displayed outdoors being much brighter and clearer than ever before. Also, the 2000 nit high-brightness panel uses Local Dimming technology to reduce power consumption to levels lower than that of existing LCD panels by turning off the darker parts of its backlights.

Additionally, LG Display's LCD panels employ a proprietary liquid crystal structure technology that enable the screen to continue showing images even when the surface temperature of the panel rises to 110°C. Conventional LCD panels begin to turn black when surface temperatures exceed 75°C, and also reach 85°C if left outdoors for 30 minutes at an outside temperature of above 30°C. LG Display's solution results in a public display technology made much more practical for the everyday environment.

A Look at the Future with Transparent Panels

Also on exhibit at the show will be LG Display's innovative 26-inch see-through panel embedded with IPS (In-Plane Switching) technology and featuring HD resolution (1366X768). The panel includes a brightness control function for sunlight when being utilized as a window, and can also work as a display during the night via an embedded LED backlight. With its terrific color reproduction, the panel can serve a variety of public display purposes and is also capable of being produced in larger 40 to 50-inch sizes with full HD resolution (1920X1080) for use in diverse public settings like at bus and subway stations, department stores and more.

Showing at DSE 2012

The latest in public display technology from LG Display will be available for public showing at DSE 2012 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth #1417, from 7-8 March 2012.
