LG Electronics installs world's large OLED signage

This one-of-a-kind OLED signage is installed at Incheon International Airport in Korea to introduce millions of travellers to the beauty of OLED

LG Electronics has unveiled two of the largest OLED displays in the world at South Korea’s Incheon International Airport. LG Electronics worked closely with the French design firm Wilmotte & Associés to develop the massive structures which adorn the main terminal of the award-winning airport.

Each sign is composed of 140 55-inch curved OLED panels, resulting in displays that stands 13 meters high and 8 meters across, equivalent to three large-sized shipping containers. The two curved displays will feature a variety of content to demonstrate the capabilities of OLED technology, such as brilliant fireworks set against a night sky. And because every pixel in an OLED display emits its own light, there is no need for heavy LED backlighting, making both of the airport displays incredibly light and flexible, allowing them to hang from the ceiling with minimal support.

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." Wa-su added "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 business-to-business 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." Se-yong, added, "The benefits of OLED technology can only be viewed, they cannot be described with mere words."
