LG Display declares war on motion blur with big screen OLED panels


CES 2019 in Las Vegas opens its doors to the public tomorrow and LG Display is in the house showing off a bunch of new OLED screens. After making a splash at last year's expo with a monster 88-inch 8K OLED screen, the display technology arm of the consumer tech giant has embedded a sound system into the panel of a huge display and is taking aim at motion blur with a UHD screen boasting the world's fastest moving image response time.

LG Display hasn't released any images of it 88-inch Crystal Sound OLED display at this time, but has shared some details. The screen has a 3.2.2 channel sound system embedded directly into the display panel which, when combined with Dolby Atmos technology, is reported to result in dynamic audio from a viewer's top, bottom, left and right.

LG is by no means the only company to have the screen itself throw out audio, but doing so with 8K visuals at 88 diagonal inches promises to be quite the eye popper and ear pleaser.

Moving down to 4K UHD, the company is debuting something called Crystal Motion OLED in a 65 inch display, which is said to have the world's fastest MPRT (Motion Picture Response Time) of 3.5 milliseconds. That should allow viewers to watch fast-paced sporting shows and action movies "in their natural vibrancy without any motion blur."
