LG un­veils TV that dis­ap­pears

The Cairns Post - - NEWS -

LG HAS un­veiled a world first TV in­no­va­tion: a rol­lable OLED screen that dis­ap­pears on com­mand.

At the base of the TV is a 100 watt front-fir­ing Dolby At­mos sound bar that also serves as a hous­ing unit for the TV when you’re not watch­ing it.

At the click of a but­ton, the screen slides down be­hind the speaker and rolls up like a garage door to dis­ap­pear from sight.

LG calls this mode “zero view” but there is also the op­tion to hit “line view” which leaves the top of the TV pok­ing out so you can ac­cess a nar­row hor­i­zon­tal menu to do things like play mu­sic, look at pho­tos or select an am­bi­ent dis­play such as a fire­place.

The com­pany had an early pro­to­type of its rol­lable OLED dis­play be­hind the scenes of last year’s event but says it will be­come a com­mer­cial re­al­ity later this year.

As TVs get big­ger in size, man­u­fac­tur­ers have si­mul­ta­ne­ously been try­ing to make them less con­spic­u­ous in our liv­ing room. Last year, LG re­leased the amaz­ingly thin wall­pa­per TV and now en­gi­neers have man­aged to make it bend­able enough to neatly fold away.

LG ex­pects the 65R9 model to hit stores later this year.

The world’s first rol­lable OLED TV from LG.
