Displays impress with their luminosity, high resolution and brilliant colors. They have one thing in common: when they are turned off, a black hole remains. You can't see through them: In the case of TFTs, the backlight design obstructs the view; in the case of self-luminous displays such as OLEDs, the wiring layer with the drive lines.
The new transparent display from LG Display is constructed using OLED technology. While TFT displays allow a transparency in the single-digit percentage range due to the necessary polarizers and the color filter, here the special construction of the OLED element and highly transparent connection lines can allow up to 40% of the light to pass through. The direction is irrelevant: light sources located behind the display shine through to the front, and viewers can look through the display from the front. This results in versatile and new application possibilities:
The self-luminous display offers perfect picture quality. With Full HD resolution and a wide color gamut and simultaneous transparency for the world behind the display, it impresses every viewer. The electronics almost completely disappear: The surrounding frame is very slim and the control board is connected with a 3m long cable and can be mounted remotely. This also simplifies the assembly of several displays to a large screen.
The display controller can be controlled with HDMI or DisplayPort signals.
