LG’s inspiring OLED Tunnel @IFA 2016

September 6, 2016

Aurora Borealis footage was a highlight

The amazing tech at hand apart, something you could nay afford to miss at IFA 2016 was LG’s OLED installation. Brilliantly conceptualized, this was the world’s largest OLED tunnel, a stunningly immersive concept with 15 Meters of OLED displays.

The OLED Tunnel measured 5m tall, 7.4m wide and 15m in length. A total of 216 separate 55-inch curved OLED signage displays were assembled to create the unique structure comprising 447,897,600 – nearly half a billion – pixels.

Footage displayed included to display a collection of breathtaking scenes including footage of Iceland’s Aurora Borealis using 14 separate 8K cameras, underwater ecosystems and deep space footage.

Talk about the perfect way to show off your product highlights, like OLED being ultra-thin, highly flexible lightweight panels. Properties like how OLED displays can be custom bent to concave or convex formations without any picture quality distortion, allowing for spectacular digital installations such as immersive tunnel-like environments were also easily communicated. Not to mention the true black, infinite contrast ratios and vibrant colors and wide viewing angles.
