LG Display has showcased transparent OLED panels, another step in the advancement of the technology. Additionally, the display manufacturer has exhibited the world's largest OLED panel, which also has a 5.1 channel sound system built directly into the display.

LG Display has introduced new OLED panels, not to be confused with the consumer-facing arm, LG Electronics. Showcased earlier this month at K-Display 2022, the technologies could still end up in consumer products, albeit expensive ones. Specifically, LG Display has created the largest OLED panel for Smart TVs yet, which measures 97-inches across. Currently, LG Electronics sells up to an 88-inch OLED panel as the LG OLED Z2, which operates at 8K.

Generally though, LG Electronics offers up to 83-inch OLED panels in most of its TV series. Based on LG Display's OLED.EX technology, the 97-inch panel also relies on deuterium to deliver up to 30% better brightness than the company's alternatives. LG Display adds that EX Technology, a personalised algorithm, helps maximise black levels, provide realistic colours and enhance fine details.

Additionally, the display features Film Cinematic Sound OLED (CSO), a technology that recreates a 5.1 channel sound system without needing embedded speakers. Instead, Film CSO vibrates the display, supposedly to create a 'cinematic level of immersion', presumably while maximising screen real estate. Meanwhile, LG Display also exhibited 42-inch and 48-inch OLED.EX panels, meaning that LG's future smaller OLED Smart TVs could benefit from brighter screens.

Furthermore, LG Display revealed new transparent OLED panels. Intended for business customers, LG Display highlighted its 'OLED-T' panels as alternatives to glass windows, potentially for shopfronts and meeting rooms. Unfortunately, LG has revealed any other details about OLED-T panels yet, nor how much they could cost. With the Mi TV Lux launching for US$7,000 a few years ago, we imagine that OLED-T panels could easily hit five figures a piece.
