The Consumer Electronics Show 2019 is currently on in Las Vegas in the United States and LG are showing some of their new Tv’s.
First up is the new Flagship Television, it’s an 88” OLED TV featuring 8K resolution (7,680 pixels width so a full resolution of 7680×4320), Dolby Atmos (3.2.2) and their OLED (Organic LED) Technology. The OLED Panels look great and the new 8K flagship is stunning, currently these panels are very expensive to manufacture so some estimates expect a price of around $40,000 at launch. A little on the small size but just about usable in a custom Home Cinema.
That 8k resolution by the way offers quadruple the pixel density of current 4k Televisions. Interestingly the TV also features Dolby Atmos - Dolby Atmos is the newest surround technology that includes spacial sound from above, typically speakers that fire downwards from the ceiling or reflect from the ceiling by firing upwards from the source.
Next up and probably not yet ready for the average customers home but nonetheless released to consumers by LG is this 65” OLED TV with rollable screen technology. It’s a 4K Screen with speakers built into the base, the TV rolls away into the base so as to be unobtrusive when it’s not in use. LG and other technology and display companies are investing a lot of money into bendable, foldable and see through displays - it’s likely that something akin to these rollable Televisions or see through televisions become the norm in the next 10-15 years.
It’s probably going to be a few years until we see these TV’s in Thailand, however it’s similar to the clothes you see in Fashion Shows, although these designs seem outlandish (and expensive) the concepts filter down into production lines so expect to see more OLED and Samsungs QLED type displays in higher and higher resolutions in the shops soon.
