  • PR LG Display Presents AI-Driven NFT Artwork on Transparent OLED

    LG Display, the world’s leading innovator of display technologies, announced today that it collaborated with Turkish-American new media artist Refik Anadol to showcase his latest AI-driven NFT (Non-Fungible Token) collection, ‘An Important Memory for Humanity,’ on its revolutionary Transparent OLEDs.
    This limited-edition NFT collection utilizes video, audio and health data taken from Inspiration4, the first-ever all-civilian spaceflight, to create a unique and expressive series of data visualizations.
    While the wide spectrum of colors, lines and spots express their bold venture out into space, its depiction on a Transparent OLED panel is a reminder of humanity’s technological evolution. This cutting-edge panel technology creates an awe-inspiring holographic effect that makes the digital art pieces appear to be floating mid-air, for an immersive media experience like no other.
    The NFT art collection was recently auctioned off for $6.2 Million, with 30% of the profits going to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the buyer receiving the NFT collection on a Transparent OLED panel. NFTs use blockchain to assign ownership to a unique piece of digital content and prevent work from being duplicated, which secures their value.
    “I understood how amazing the OLED can be for communicating data paintings and data sculptures,” remarked Anadol. “Especially LG Display’s Transparent OLED, is a very exciting medium because you can really see through the medium of data like a holographic experience while you are interacting with an AI.”
    Anadol was able to leverage the Transparent OLED’s revolutionary technology to visualize data such as telemetry, ultrasound, and heartbeats into an aesthetic masterpiece.

    PR LG Display’s Research Results Reaffirm OLED is the Optimal Gaming Display

    SEOUL, Korea (May 12, 2022) – LG Display, the world’s leading innovator of display technologies, unveiled its original research results on the ergonomic requirements of gaming displays, providing further evidence that OLED is the optimal gaming display. The research was introduced during the 2022 SID Business Conference at Display Week in San Jose, California.

    With demand for gaming displays surging since the onset of the pandemic, this move aims to establish new and reliable standards that can objectively judge the performance of gaming displays from the perspective of consumers.

    For the study, LG Display tested a handful of gamers to discover which display conditions provide the best gaming experiences. The players tested games of different genres on a wide spectrum of displays, from OLED and LCDs to flat and curved form factors. The study results show that a gamer’s reaction time can be improved by using OLED, while a display’s curvature provides a more immersive gaming experience.

    Reaction time is the time it takes for the user to recognize the input signal on the screen and then react to it by clicking their mouse or keyboard. Because a shorter reaction time increases the player’s chances of winning, it is widely considered one of the most important factors when choosing a display. Study results reveal that an OLED’s average reaction time was 50 milliseconds (ms) faster than an LCD. “Considering the gamer uses a special mouse or keyboard for gaming which usually provides speed advantage of 10 to 20ms, 50ms is critical in determining a game’s outcome,” said Dr. Jang Jin Yoo, Research Fellow and the head researcher of the study at LG Display.

    Curvature, which refers to the display’s degree of curve, is another determinant factor of a gaming display’s performance. The research study shows that 800R was selected as the display curvature to deliver the most immersive playing experience, although less curved screens performed slightly better for specific sports games. The curvature of today’s gaming monitor screen ranges from 1800R to 4000R, while the study found out that the optimal viewing distance from the monitor display and the person for gaming is around 800mm. This suggests that gamers are missing out on the optimal curvature, and therefore the ultimate gaming experience, too.

    “Given its flexible nature, OLED can maximize a display’s degree of curve to the highest level, which is impossible on an LCD,” said Chang-han Kim, Vice President and Head of Gaming Display Business Division at LG Display. “Finding out that the optimal curvature for gaming is 800R was definitely an exciting discovery for us.”

    With its leading reputation for introducing the world’s first Rollable OLED TV in 2018, LG Display has now set its sights on developing game-changing displays that bring the next-level immersion gamers crave. The company is backing its recent studies, which identified a bendable display as the ideal gaming monitor, by developing a Bendable OLED display that leverages its flexible nature to safely bend from curved to straight on command while maintaining unmatched picture quality.

    “Bendable OLED display will be one of the most fun gaming devices that gamers will find in the market,” remarked Kim. “We will continue to expand our gaming OLED lineup to offer new and exciting gaming experiences for our customers.”

    LG Display is developing gaming-exclusive OLED panels with unique and distinctive form factors which shift between curved and flat states, and plans to collaborate with major global gaming brands to release the most innovative gaming displays in the future.

    Globally renowned for its excellent performance, OLED is considered the perfect choice for console or high-end PC games. It also boasts outstanding three-dimensional image quality across an infinite contrast ratio, the fastest response time, and a wide variable refresh rate that ranges from 40 Hz to 240 Hz.

    Another crucial aspect of gaming performance is eye health. LG Display’s OLED displays boast the lowest blue light level in the industry, emitting 60% less than that of premium LCD displays of the same size. The OLED’s exceptionally low blue light allows players to enjoy longer, flicker-free gaming experiences without side effects such as eye fatigue or headaches.
