An immersive installation that leverages flexible commercial display technology from LG Electronics, is catching the eyes of attendees at CES 2018 in Las Vegas this week. The winding 92-foot-long “LG OLED Canyon” features 246 LG Open Frame OLED displays, in concave and convex configurations.

LG OLED technology uses self-lighting pixels for exact control of image brightness and quality, and with no separate light source the displays are extremely lightweight, thin, and flexible, the company says. Using this technology, LG Open Frame OLED displays for business-to-business applications are literally able to flex for digital signage applications.
Welcoming visitors to LG’s CES booth adjacent to the main entrance of the Las Vegas Convention Center, the LG OLED Canyon features 90 concave and 156 convex Open Frame 4K UHD screens. Visitors walk through the 30-yard-long twisting canyon trail and experience images produced by a total of two billion self-emissive OLED pixels. The video experience, featuring natural wonders such as a forest, glacier, waterfall, and blizzard, is further enhanced by immersive Dolby Atmos audio, which also is included in 2018 LG OLED TVs for the consumer market.
In addition to the customizable Open Frame LG OLED displays demonstrated at CES, the 2018 family of LG OLED commercial displays includes Wallpaper and Wallpaper-In-Glass models and video wall units, as well as Dual-View Flat and Curved Tiling models.
Other LG commercial technologies integrated into the company’s CES booth include the 86-inch LG “Ultra Stretch” digital signage displays with content driving home key messages about ThinQ artificial intelligence and connected appliances. These Ultra HD digital signage displays measure just over seven feet long with a 58:9 bar-type display. They feature LG’s Picture-by-Picture technology, which can divide the long, rectangular signage into four seamless screens for landscape or portrait installations.
