LG Display has provided the world's first transparent OLED displays for subway train windows in the Chinese cities of Beijing and Shenzhen.
Transparent OLEDs are gaining interest not only from mobility customers in the areas of self-driving cars, airplanes, and subways, but also from sectors such as smart home and smart building industries. As OLEDs are self-emitting with no need of backlights, they are able to produce a maximized transparency rate. For more information see the IDTechEx report on Flexible, Printed OLED Displays 2020-2030: Forecasts, Markets, Technologies.
The 55-inch transparent OLED displays installed in the Beijing (Line 6) and Shenzhen (Line 10) subways offer real-time information about subway schedules, locations, transfers, as well as flights and lifestyle information such as weather and news.
LG Display plans to expand the supply of transparent OLEDs to major subway stations in cooperation with railroad companies and subway train glass manufacturers.
"The application of transparent displays will become more diverse," said Dr. Chang-ho Oh, Senior Vice President & Head of the TV Business Unit at LG Display. "LG Display aims to supply products to a wide range of industries in line with its vision as the leading display solution provider."
