In addition to several Transparent OLED demos, LG Display will also present a concept product related to gaming during its CES 2021 virtual showroom: a 48-inch 4K “Bendable CSO (Cinematic Sound OLED) screen” that can switch between a flat screen and a curved screen. The idea here is that you can watch videos in flat screen mode, and with the push of a button, the monitor transforms into a curved screen – up to 1000mm in radius – for more immersive gaming.
This demo may remind you of last year in-flight entertainment demo, in which a 65-inch screen could turn into a curved mode. What’s new this time is the “CSO” look: there’s a 0.6mm thick film exciter underneath, which turns the entire OLED panel into a speaker. This allows for a slimmer monitor, and with the audio coming straight from the screen, it apparently adds to the immersiveness of the gaming and video experience.
