LG OLED Video Wall recognized at AV Technology Europe Awards 2018
The LG OLED Video Wall signage has been awarded under the category of “Best Use of Projection/Display Solutions” at the first ever AV Technology Europe Awards 2018. The awards held in Amsterdam were dedicated to recognizing innovation and achievements in AV throughout end-user businesses.
Kevin Cha, president, LG Electronics, Middle East & Africa, said: “Digital signage industry today is paving way for unprecedented growth and creativity to create attractions that are a cut above the rest and our world record-breaking LG OLED Video Wall truly exemplifies LG’s commitment toward proactively contributing to this phenomenal evolution. We are extremely pleased to be associated with worldrenowned partners on this exciting project which continues to create success stories further reaffirming an OLED era in the coming years.”
The award-winning video wall at The Dubai Mall was unveiled by Emaar Entertainment in August 2017 taking digital signage into a whole new realm and scoring a hat-trick of record titles, in partnership with LG: Largest OLED screen, highest resolution video wall and largest high-definition video wall.
The wall is 50-meters wide, with a wavelike configuration spanning two storys and is fully visible from the ground floor at The Dubai Mall, the world’s most visited retail destination.
LG OLED screens have resulted in superb images with the deepest possible blacks and life-like colors as well as wider viewing angles than conventional backlit displays.
The mega-sized video wall was created using 820 LG Open Frame OLED signage panels. All functions and the user interface were tailored to meet the venue’s specific requirements.
The use of LG’s Open Frame OLED signage at the Dubai Aquarium was particularly fitting because the curved form factor of the display follows the undulations of flowing water. The LG Open Frame OLED signage can be configured into both convex and concave curves in both landscape and portrait modes, blending into any public and private space.
The nomination for the award category was initiated by Dataton as part of the efforts to promote the video wall on an international platform.
