Electronics manufacturer LG has installed two of the world’s largest OLED displays at Incheon International Airport in South Korea. LG worked closely with French design firm Wilmotte & Associés to develop the two structures which hang from the ceiling of the main terminal.
Each sign is composed of 140 55-inch curved OLED panels, resulting in displays that measure approximately 43ft high by 26ft wide. The two curved displays will feature a variety of content to demonstrate the capabilities of OLED technology, such as exploding fireworks set against a night sky. Every pixel in an OLED display emits its own light meaning that there is no need for heavy LED backlighting, making both of the airport displays light and flexible.
Park Wan-su, president and CEO at Incheon International Airport, said, “These OLED displays perfectly complement the advanced technology that our airport has become known for. We are always eager to showcase to the millions of travelers every year the cutting-edge technology that originates from Korea. OLED is a prime example of that.”
Ro Se-yong, senior vice president and head of B2B solutions at LG Electronics, said, “While the world’s largest OLED sign is certainly something to be proud of, we are more excited about the opportunity to introduce travelers from across the world to the magic of OLED.”
