South Korea’s electronics giant LG has created what it describes as the world’s first 65” – and thinnest – OLED-based wallpaper TV display for the important hotel market. While not a ‘full’ 4K model it does support high dynamic range technologies including HDR-10, Dolby Vision and Hybrid Log Gamma reception.
The display, plus its 55” ‘sister’ unit were showcased at Hospitality Industry Technology (HITEC) show in Toronto, Canada.
“The LG OLED Wallpaper Hotel TV lives up to the unrivaled ability of OLED to deliver the very best picture quality available today, and its sophisticated form factor will not only capture guests’ attention but leave a lasting impression,” said Michael Kosla, vice president, hospitality, LG Electronics USA Business Solutions. “As the world’s first LG OLED Wallpaper TV for hotels, this innovative new display is sure to revolutionize the way luxury hotels and resorts elevate the in-room experience for premium guests.”
LG adds that at just 3.86mm (0.15 inches) thin, the 65EV960H unit can be easily installed in luxury hotel suites using ultra-slim mounting brackets with a magnetic mat to create a truly seamless design that becomes one with the wall. Its electrical components are housed in the device’s Media Box, connected through an ultra-thin flat cable, which allows the panel to lie flush against the wall like a piece of art and makes installation a breeze. Even more, the Ultra HD OLED display’s inventive technology can be seen from wide viewing angles, so guests can enjoy the TV’s rich colour and crisp picture regardless of their seat in the room.
