With television technology taking center stage at CES 2013, LG brings out their curve ball, a curved screen
This is the EA9800, the first siting of a curved television screen featuring OLED technology. No other words will be able to explain this curved OLED television other than it’s a very similar experience to looking through a windowsill at the outside world.
In order to mimic reality through a television screen, LG had to incorporate several features including a High Dynamic Range algorithm, ensuring consistent contrast ratios and maximum color separation.
The television’s body is ultra-slim thanks to the new OLED incorporation. In OLED televisions, each diode can produce its own light, ending its dependence on a separate backlight that normally would take up quite a lot of space in television housing. What makes it even more appealing is LG’s use of something called CFPR, Carbon-Fiber Reinforced Plastic, reducing the weight of the television while adding strength to the build at the same time.
Also improved is an aspect that needed quite an improvement: the wall bracket. Buy an LG OLED television now and you’ll only need one person to install thanks to the easy-to-mount design, finishing off with a gap from the television to the wall at less than one inch.
These curved OLED televisions will also be shipping out including the company’s Cinema 3D and Smart TV technology.
