LG Electronics Malaysia is revamping its line of commercial display and digital signage products. Featuring OLED technology, these are aimed at the retail, corporate and government sectors.
“LG Electronics’ wide range of screen sizes from 10” to 98”, coupled with high quality image resolution and industry firsts – including the world’s first OLED digital signage as well as a super-sized 58:9 Ultra Stretch signage ratio – allow Malaysian businesses to leverage commercial displays to suit their specific needs,” said David Oh, Managing Director of LG Electronics Malaysia.
In a new report by Global Market Insights, Inc., the global digital signage market size is forecast to be worth US $23.02 billion by 2023. Specifically, the Asia Pacific digital signage market share is forecast to grow at 6.5% from 2016 to 2023.
LG is claiming to be the world’s first OLED digital signage manufacturer. OLED emits light without any backlight of its own. Additionally, the display does not reflect light. Therefore, there is no distortion of colours regardless of the angle from which they are viewed.
LG’s dual-view, curved and wavy digital signage enable consumers to experience screens from the front and the back at the same time.
The company’s "Ultra Stretch" signage product boasts an unprecedented 58:9 aspect ratio. This panel is 2,148 mm wide and 335 mm high.
The LG 86BH5C features 4K Ultra HD resolution and Picture-by-Picture technology, which allows the user to divide the long, rectangular signage into four seamless screens in landscape or portrait installations. It can be used as a signboard in airports, a welcome board for a company or as a digital billboard in a store.
