Airport has world’s largest OLED displays26 November 2015
LG Electronics has unveiled the two largest OLED displays in the world at South Korea’s Incheon International Airport. Each sign is composed of 140 55in curved OLED panels, resulting in displays that measure 13m high by 8m across.
The manufacturer worked closely with French design firm Wilmotte & Associés to develop the massive structures that are hung in the main terminal of the airport – making an eye-catching spectacle for passengers who pass beneath them.
The two curved displays feature a variety of content to demonstrate the capabilities of OLED technology, such as brilliant fireworks set against a night sky. Because OLED displays do not require LED backlighting, the airport displays are light and flexible, allowing them to be suspended with minimal support.
“While the world’s largest OLED sign is certainly something to be proud of, we are more excited about the opportunity to introduce travellers from across the world to the magic of OLED,” said Ro Se-Yong, senior vice president and head of B2B solutions at LG Electronics. “The benefits of OLED technology can only be viewed, they cannot be described with mere words.”
“These OLED displays perfectly complement the advanced technology that our airport has become known for,” said Park Wan-su, president and CEO at Incheon International Airport. “We are always eager to showcase to the millions of travellers every year the cutting-edge technology that originates from Korea. OLED is a prime example of that.”
