LG Display, which features the 97-inch OLED.EX screen at K-Display 2022 in Seoul, Korea, has announced the latest version. The company claims to show the most realistic colors, subtle details, and perfect blacks associated with OLED televisions, along with the benefits of its EX technology.
LG Display's next-generation OLED EX technology was revealed at the end of last year. It improves image clarity by 30%, compared to other traditional OLEDs.
Other than that big size and picture quality, the panel's highlight feature is its use of Film CSO (Cinematic Sound OLED) technology. It uses a thin film exciter on the rear of the panel to vibrate the display, creating audio without requiring built-in or external speakers. LG says a 5.1 channel sound system is embedded in the display, enabling performance that is quite a bold claim.
This isn't the first time this company has shown off vibrating audio technology. CSO was present on the 48-inch 4K gaming-focused TV (above) given at last year's CES. It also boasted a "paper-thin screen" that could bend from flat to curved, at the touch of a button. There was also a very early version of Crystal Sound, which was also present on 2019's LG G8 ThinQ phone.
The Sony Bravia AG9 OLED TV, which has a hefty reviewstech YouTuber, has a similar screen-vibrating sound.
The new vibrating panel will not come cheap. Expect to pay around $25,000 or more, the same price as LG Electronics' next 97-inch non-vibrating TV.
