LG Display Unveils Latest Transparent OLED Solutions for Mobility at ‘InnoTrans 2022’2022.09.26
SEOUL, Korea (Sep. 20, 2022) – LG Display, the world’s leading innovator of display technologies, announced today that it will showcase its most advanced Transparent OLED solutions for mobility at InnoTrans 2022, the world's largest trade fair for transport technology, in Berlin, Germany between September 20 and 23.
In partnership with LG Electronics, LG Display will be introducing its innovative Transparent OLED solutions that can be applied to various forms of public transport, demonstrating the powerful potential of Transparent OLED to not only provide new and unparalleled experiences, but also cutting-edge solutions that combine innovation, convenience and function to enhance people’s lifestyles.
LG Display will unveil its ‘Transparent OLED for Subway Trains’ which employs Israeli material science company Gauzy’s SPD (Suspended Particle Device) Smart Glass – a special tempered glass – in an IGU (Insulated Glass Unit) to give it the enhanced strength and durability to handle strong impacts and vibrations. This innovative Transparent OLED solution can be used to replace standard train windows with immersive, high-quality displays that present advertisements, news and weather forecasts on screen while maintaining high transparency. In addition, it blocks up to 99% of light when SPD is on, creating an even higher contrast for color rich displays in shifting lighting conditions.
The company will also showcase the ‘Smart Digital Information Desk’ which will transform an ordinary train station’s information desk into a medium for accurate information delivery. This cutting-edge Transparent solution with touch functionality will enable people to enjoy a more interactive experience by allowing travelers to converse with desk employees through the Transparent OLED screen, which simultaneously visualizes various useful information including live train times, emergency notices, nearby facilities and local tourist attractions.
LG Display will also unveil the ‘Show Window’ with its four 55-inch Transparent OLEDs arranged in a 2×2 square, which is able to overlay text, images and video content in front of products to create a captivating brand platform, ideal for developing welcome boards, photo zones or interactive display spaces with a difference.
In addition to LG Display’s booth at InnoTrans 2022, Germany’s national railway company ‘Deutsche Bahn’ will also showcase its next-generation concept train which uses Transparent OLED displays for its windows, presenting the next step in future train technology development.
