Transparent screens and displays that seem to melt into the wall have always been the stuff of sci-fi dreams. However, LG is now looking to rewrite the future of television with its brand new OLED Signature T, a stunning real, wireless transparent TV that brings sci-fi dreams to your living room. Announced at CES 2024, this new 77-inch marvel boasts 4K resolution, LG’s cutting-edge wireless transmission technology for audio and video, and a bunch of nifty features.
Basically, the OLED T has two main components: the transparent display panel itself and a contrast filter situated behind it. By simply pressing a button on the remote, the contrast filter can be lowered or raised, allowing the Signature OLED T to transform from a transparent display to a standard old TV.
The OLED T utilises LG’s latest Alpha 11 AI processor, delivering four times the performance compared to its predecessor. As per the manufacturer, this improved processing power translates to a remarkable 70 per cent increase in graphics performance and 30 per cent faster processing speeds. The TV is compatible with LG’s Zero Connect Box, first introduced with last year’s M3 OLED, enabling wireless transmission of video and audio content to the TV.
Instead of connecting streaming devices and game consoles directly to the TV, you can conveniently link them all to the Zero Connect Box. The TV runs on a custom webOS interface designed to optimise the viewing experience. In the audio department, the OLED T features down-firing speakers neatly placed in the base, which also accommodates a range of internal components. Additionally, the TV is equipped with backlights that can be activated, to achieve a fully transparent aesthetic.
LG offers the OLED T in standalone, against-the-wall, and wall-mounted options, providing users with versatile choices for placement. While officially announcing the LG Signature OLED T, Park Hyoung-sei, President of the LG Home Entertainment Company, said in a press release, “An incredible feat of consumer-driven innovation, LG Signature OLED T offers brand-new screen experiences, plus the picture quality and performance of our award-winning OLED technology. LG’s transparent OLED gives customers greater freedom to curate their living spaces, completely redefining what’s possible and pointing the way to an exciting future for the television industry.”
LG hasn’t revealed any release dates but plans to ship the Signature OLED T sometime in 2024. As for the price, prepare for sticker shock that could make your wallet wince.
