LG introduced the world’s first rollable TV called “LG Signature OLED TV R” that uses OLED technology. The said annoucement was made during the CES 2019 held at Las Vegas Convention Center.
The 65-inch display panel on the LG Signature OLED TV R can appear and disappear as per your convenience. It rolls out and into a horizontal box that serves as a sound bar powered by Dolby. The TV panel rolls back into the box with just a click of a button within about 10 seconds and the entire movement is quiet.
Users are given three different modes to choose from:
Full View delivers a large-screen viewing experience revealing the full extent of the contrast, depth and realism that has become synonymous with all LG TVs. The remarkable AI picture and sound quality powered by LG’s second generation α (Alpha) 9 intelligent processor and deep learning algorithm puts this breathtaking TV in a class of its own. Users can use their own voice to get things done with Amazon Alexa, a new addition to LG’s AI TV lineup in 2019, and the support of Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit.
With AirPlay 2, users can easily play videos directly from their Apple devices, iTunes and other video apps, music or photos to their LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R. With Apple HomeKit support, customers will be able to control their LG TV using the Home app or by asking Siri.
Line View allows the LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R to be partially unrolled, allowing for management of specific tasks that do not require the full TV screen. In Line View, users can choose from features such as Clock mode to check the time and weather, Frame mode to enjoy family photos shared from a smartphone, Mood mode to create a more relaxing atmosphere as well as others including Music and Home Dashboard.
When in Zero View, all 65 inches of the LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R are hidden from view and tucked away in the base. Even in Zero View, users can enjoy music and other audio content which resonate from the 4.2-channel, 100W front-firing Dolby Atmos audio system. The premium bloodline is clearly evident in the entire unit, from the brushed aluminum casing to the quality wool speaker cover designed by Kvadrat of Denmark.
