LG’s latest insanely-thin OLED panel is officially making its debut into the hotel TV sector, with the company’s ‘Wallpaper’ TV being offered to hoteliers around the world at the 2017 Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC).
Officially, this is the world’s thinnest hotel TV, measuring just 3.86mm (0.15in) thick. Despite the slim body, this TV is still one of the best around, thanks to the OLED technology it utilises, which means each individual pixel is its own light source.
The 65in OLED Wallpaper Hotel TV (model 65EV960H) is expected to only be available in high-end hotels. With the consumer variant of the TV costing around $7999.99, it’s likely not to be cheap for hoteliers. Despite its high price, this TV packs perfect black levels – and therefore infinite contrast – something an LCD display can only dream of.
“The LG OLED Wallpaper Hotel TV lives up to the unrivalled ability of OLED to deliver the very best picture quality available today, and its sophisticated form factor will not only capture guests’ attention but leave a lasting impression,” says Michael Kosla, vice president, hospitality, LG Electronics USA Business Solutions. “As the world’s first LG OLED Wallpaper TV for hotels, this innovative new display is sure to revolutionise the way luxury hotels and resorts elevate the in-room experience for premium guests.”
The LG OLED Wallpaper Hotel TV comes equipped with the Pro:Idiom digital rights management system and the flexible LG Pro:Centric Smart applications platform, which makes navigating LG’s vast content options within the interactive platforms simple and fast.
The state-of-the-art display also supports leading high dynamic range (HDR) formats, including HDR 10, Dolby Vision and HLG. The TV’s powerful 4K upscaler enhances the details and colours of non-4K content on the screen’s 8 million-plus pixels. The 65EV960H is also one of the first TVs in the world to incorporate Dolby Atmos sound.
The new 65-inch LG OLED Wallpaper Hotel TV joins 55- and 65-inch class LG OLED hotel TVs (models 65EW960H and 55EW960H, respectively). In addition, a host of LG OLED commercial displays are now available for hotel public spaces. They include Dual-View Curved Tiling, Dual-View Flat, Video Wall, Open Frame, Wallpaper Digital Signage and In-Glass Wallpaper LG OLED displays.
