LG Display has showcased its latest transparent OLED solutions for mobility applications at InnoTrans 2022, a trade fair for transport technology.
LGD shows its 55" 38% transparency FHD transparent displays, that actually has been adopted for subway windows before. Interestingly, LGD has also unveiled a new transparent OLED display - a smaller 30" display that offers higher transparency - 45%. You can see both of these displays in the video above.
In August 2020 LG supplied transparent 55" OLED panels that are installed on subway train windows, in Beijing (Line 6) and Shenzhen (Line 10), and later on in Fuzhou as well. In 2021 the Moscow Metro also installed transparent OLEDs at one of the lines, and LGD also lists Japanâ€™s overground East Japan Railway Company trains as a customer for its T-OLEDs.
In August 2021, it was reported that the interest in LGD's transparent OLED is rising - and there are many inquires for its transparent OLED solutions from both train and bus companies, from Europe and North America.
During InnoTrans, LGD and LGE together unveiled new OLED displays that employ Israeli material science company Gauzyâ€™s SPD (Suspended Particle Device) Smart Glass, a special tempered glass â€“ in an IGU (Insulated Glass Unit) to give it the enhanced strength and durability to handle strong impacts and vibrations.
In February 2019 LG Display started producing its 55" FHD 38% transparent commercial OLED displays, and later the company announced it plans to double its transparent OLED production by the end of 2019 as it sees possible applications in shop windows, building faÃ§ades and exhibition spaces.
