55″ Transparent OLED Display

55″ Transparent OLED Display

Transparent OLED is a breakthrough transparent display technology that displays dynamic or interactive information on a transparent surface glass. This revolutionary display allows users to view what is shown on a glass video screen while still being able to see through it. Designers can overlay text, digital images, and video content onto physical objects or scenes that sit behind the glass. Transparent OLED displays are self-emitting and utilize cutting-edge Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology to eliminate the need for a backlight or enclosure, making it possible to create truly see-through installations in a virtually frameless glass design.

Flexible Design Options

The OLED transparent display measures 55-inch in diagonal. It can be used in both portrait and landscape modes, can be table mounted, ceiling mounted, or built into custom fixtures using the straight flush-mount design. It can also be tiled to create large, eye-catching video wall arrays.

Brilliant Picture Quality in a Large Viewing Size

The OLED transparent display offers vibrant colors greater than 100 percent National Television System Committee (NTSC) performance as well as wide viewing angles with no off-axis contrast or brightness limitations. The display provides Full HD resolution that allows for beautiful graphics and full-motion video.

High Durability

The OLED display features protective optically-clear Corning® Gorilla® Glass bonded to the front surface of the display. This high-durability surface can withstand the rigors of high-traffic environments and interactive touch. This technology also improves perceived contrast by more than 300 percent when compared to traditional large format cover glass, making the display more readable and impactful even in bright public venues.

Source Compatibility

The OLED transparent display comes with standard digital inputs including HDMI and DisplayPort, is fully controllable using RS-232, LAN, Crestron and other control systems, and is compatible with sources ranging from PCs and players to consumer video devices that rely on High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) compliance.

Transparent OLED Pixels are Partially Clear

Each pixel in a transparent OLED display is made up of 4 sub-pixels.  Color is created by the combination of the red, green, and blue sub-pixels and the remaining area of the pixel is clear. That clear section creates the transparency. This is why there is a direct relationship between resolution and transparency. If the display contains more active pixels that creates less space for the clear pixels and results in a display that is less see through. This is why the OLED is Full HD resolution today, as it optimizes transmission and resolution.

Black is Clear, White is Opaque

Unlike transparent LCD displays, black or dark content on the screen is clear and white or bright content is opaque. You can see this in the photos below. The car image appears to be floating in space and through the black background you can clearly see the books and pencils which are physical objects set behind the display. The full screen image of the boat appears in the foreground, but if you look closely at the hull of the boat you will see some objects behind the display, made visible by the dark area.

Ambient Light Affects Perceived Transparency

Just like any glass surface, ambient light affects that appearance of transparency. The two images below are the same display, the same on-screen content (of the model), and the same plant behind the display. The only difference is that the plant has been “uplit.” With more light on the object behind the screen you can see that the leaves of grass are much more visible through the display than they would be if the light was off. A transparent display in an entirely dark room will appear opaque. A transparent display in a light filled room with objects or scenes heavily lit behind the display will appear like transparent glass.

Readability Makes Exhibits Possible

The OLED transparent display is quite clear, which makes reading fine details or text on objects behind the display possible. This means that retail merchandisers or museum exhibit designers can put the display in front of goods or artifacts without obscuring their view.

Broad Color Gamut Reads as Brightness

Transparent OLED technology has long been recognized for its amazing color performance.  While best-in-class LCD displays achieve around 72% NTSC color space (a measure of the number of colors that the display is capable of showing), OLED can achieve greater than 100%.  This means more vivid reds, more vibrant greens, and eye-popping blues.

This color performance, together with the peak brightness characteristics of the emissive display, create a display that appears much brighter than you might expect from reading the specifications alone. Your eye translates color as brightness and in a side-by-side comparison with a “brighter” display, the transparent OLED will be the most vivid.
