LG Shows Off 65-Inch OLED TV That Rolls Up

LG is one of the world's leading makers of OLED TVs, and it's got a TV on display at CES 2018 that's more than just flexible - it's rollable.

While the 65-inch rollable UHD LG OLED display could easily become the star of the event, it has some serious competition too.

Despite just getting back into mobile OLED technology on phones, LG is a veteran of OLED TVs. LG has added support for Advanced HDR by Technicolor to its support for Dolby Vision, Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG), and HDR10. That also means the rolled up portion of the new LG panel won't use any power while the strip at the top is in use.

LG CTO Dr. IP Park opens the company's CES 2018 press conference. Since OLED don't require backlighting, they are super slim as well.


LG Display will be unveiling a 65-inch "rollable" display with Ultra High Definition resolution at CES, the company announced.

When not being used, the LG OLED panel rolls up into its base like some sort of high-tech carpet. In terms of sharpness, the Alpha 9 processor separately analyzes textures and edges, which are then processed differently to make detection clearer and those edges sharper. LG's latest TVs powered by the ThinQ AI largely rely on it as one of their main selling points, boasting related features such as the Electronic Program Guide that can procure real-time and highly personalized information, as well as a variety of other functionalities, including support for both Amazon's Alexa and the Google Assistant. LG offered that this year at its booth with its OLED Canyon. LG's technology improves black levels and picture dimensions by independent control of LED light zones, improving shadow details, and reducing light bleed for enhanced contrast and superb picture quality.

Back at CES 2016, LG showed off a rollable OLED display for the first time, but it was a mere 18-inches, not the impressive 65-inch consumer-ready television it now has at CES 2018. Not a lot is known about the prototype yet, but check out more info HERE courtesy of The Verge.
