Samsung Display showcased its next-generation technologies, including ultra-large 8K display and a vibrating display, at the International Meeting on Information Display (IMID) 2018, which opened at COEX, Samseong-dong, Seoul, on Oct. 24.
With the slogan “OLED optimized for the 5G era,” the company exhibited ultra-realistic products that allow people to enjoy cutting-edge media content such as virtual reality (VR) and hologram in the 5G era, which will arrive soon. It showed a display for VR that implements 1200ppi ultra-high resolution on organic light emitting diode (OLED), a light field display (LFD) which allows users to feel three-dimensional images on screen without 3D glasses, and “AR LFD” technology that combines augmented reality (AR) with 3D.
In particular, it introduced haptic on display (HoD) technology, which allows users to feel vibrations of the display with their fingers. The display has haptic sensors in it. The sensors transmit vibration to the screen, allowing users to have much more fun when playing with a smart phone. It also created an exhibition space to see the progress of OLED full-screen technology at a glance and introduced fingerprint recognition technology and sound built-in technology.
In addition, the company showed the 82-inch and 65-inch large 8K liquid crystal display (LCD) panels that are applied to the 8K TV, the highest resolution TV in the market as of now, the 15.6-inch ultra-high resolution (UHD, pixel count 3840 × 2160) OLED product for IT, and the 49-inch product with a 32-to-9 screen ratio.
