LG Electronics (LG) has been showcasing to visitors at the company's IFA 2016 exhibition booth an awe-inspiring and immersive OLED Tunnel measuring a record-breaking 5m tall, 7.4m wide and 15m in length.

According to the announcement the impressive scale of the display tunnel has been made possible by the ultra-thin, highly flexible lightweight OLED panels. OLED displays can be custom bent to concave or convex formations without any picture quality distortion, allowing for spectacular digital installations such as immersive tunnel-like environments. Each OLED pixel can switch itself on and off, eliminating the need for backlighting. OLED TVs have the ability to render true black and infinite contrast ratio that delivers vibrant, eye-popping color and wide viewing angles.
