Thin Is In: LG Unveils OLED Wallpaper TV

TORONTO—LG Electronics USA Business Solutions has unveiled the LG OLED Wallpaper Hotel TV—a “razor-thin” display that appears to become one with the wall—at the 2017 Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC) here.

The 65-in. class OLED Wallpaper Hotel TV (model 65EV960H) combines LG’s hotel TV technology with the aesthetic and image quality of the LG Signature OLED TV W, now available on the consumer market. 

Due to its ability to turn pixels on or off, LG OLED TVs render perfect black levels—and therefore infinite contrast—to display vibrant colors, immersive details and lifelike images that LCD displays cannot produce, according to the company.

“The LG OLED Wallpaper Hotel TV lives up to the unrivaled ability of OLED to deliver the very best picture quality available today, and its sophisticated form factor will not only capture guests’ attention but leave a lasting impression,” said Michael Kosla, VP, Hospitality, LG Electronics USA Business Solutions. “As the world’s first LG OLED Wallpaper TV for hotels, this innovative new display is sure to revolutionize the way luxury hotels and resorts elevate the in-room experience for premium guests.”

With a width of 0.15-in., the 65EV960H can be installed in luxury hotel suites using slim mounting brackets with a magnetic mat for seamless design. Its electrical components are housed in the device’s media box, connected through a thin flat cable, which allows the panel to lie flush against the wall. The display’s technology enables the TV to be seen from wide viewing angles for viewing from any location in the room.

The new TV is equipped with the Pro:Idiom digital rights management system and the LG Pro:Centric Smart applications platform. The display also supports high dynamic range (HDR) formats, including HDR 10, Dolby Vision and HLG. The 4K upscaler enhances the details and colors of non-4K content on the screen’s 8 million-plus pixels. It also incorporates Dolby Atmos sound.
