LG Electronics has introduced the SIGNATURE TV R, a rollable TV that uses organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology.
A recent article in Printed Electronics World states that manufacturers are trying to make large TVs less conspicuous—without sacrificing depth of color and resolution. LG may have accomplished that by creating the R version of the OLED TV. Less conspicuous in this instance means that, at the touch of a button, the TV screen rolls into a case and out of sight.
The television offers different functions for varying amounts of visible screen. Full View gives users access to all visual and audio components of television watching. Line View uses the TV screen partially unrolled to manage features such as Mood, Music and Clock. Zero View means all 65 inches of the television are tucked into the base. In Zero View, users can still employ the audio system.
As of the end of 2018, LG was the only manufacturer of OLED panels for TVs, according to the article.
