CES has been the global stage of innovation for more than 50 years, and CES 2021, starting next January 11, fully digital, will continue to be a platform for launching products, getting involved with global brands and defining the future of the technological industry.

We will be witnessing a unique experience for the technology industry, and in addition to several transparent OLED demos, LG Display will also display a conceptual product related to games in its virtual CES 2021 showroom: a 48-inch screen “Bendable CSO (Cinematic Sound OLED) that can switch between a flat screen and a curved screen.

The idea is that we can enjoy and watch videos in flat screen mode, and at the press of a button, the monitor turns into a curved screen – up to a radius of 1,000mm – for more immersive games. This demonstration may remind us of last year’s entertainment demonstration, in which a 65-inch screen can be turned into a curved mode.

What’s new now is the “CSO” aspect: there is a 0.6 mm thick film underneath, which turns the entire OLED panel into a speaker. This allows for a thinner monitor, and with audio coming directly from the screen, increasing the immersiveness of both the gaming and video experience.

We can then switch between a flat screen and a curved screen at the press of a button. The 48-inch CSO Bendable screen uses the advantages of OLED as the thin paper screen folds and unfolds with a radius of curvature of up to 1,000R, meaning it can be made to fold up to a radius of 1,000mm without affecting the function of the display. It can therefore be transformed into an apartment screen while watching TV and used as a curved screen during a game.

The curved display offers a uniform viewing distance from the middle of the screen to its edge, maximizing the visual immersion that is popular with players.

In addition, the company’s CSO technology allows OLED screens to vibrate and make their own sound without using any loudspeaker, offering a vivid sense of reality as if the characters on the screen were speaking directly to the viewer. The ultra-thin film of the 48-inch bendable CSO, which is the part that vibrates the screen, has been reduced to a thickness of just 0.6mm from 9mm and therefore allows viewers to enjoy a thinner screen as well as of a highly impressive sound.

The Korean company added that this monitor supports a variable refresh rate ranging from 40Hz to 120Hz, which is the minimum for a gaming monitor today. Others are already offering 240Hz or even 360Hz, but obviously have no transformation capacity.
