`Displace’ To Launch 55″ 4K Battery Powered OLED TVs At CES 2023
San Diego-based in-home electronics start-up Displace unveiled Tuesday what it is calling “the world’s first truly wireless TV,” based on proprietary hot-swappable battery technology and a 55-inch 4K OLED display panel.
The “Wireless TV” is scheduled to be demonstrated at CES 2023 in Las Vegas Jan. 5-8th (LVCC Central Hall). Unlike other TVs, Displace 55-inch 4K TVs are powered by a proprietary hot-swappable battery system, are lightweight at under 20 pounds and easily transportable. The televisions can be secured to any surface “with no mounting required,” the company said.
The company said Displace TVs use a “proprietary active-loop vacuum technology” that allows them to “magically stick” to a wall with “a slight push,” without the need for mounting or messy wire clutter.
Displace TVs’ multiple rechargeable batteries can be popped in and out individually. Batteries can also be charged one at a time while the TV remains fully operational using Displace’s proprietary hot-swappable battery system.
Each Displace TV averages about a month of total battery charge life based on an average usage of six hours of active TV time per day, the company said.
Displace TVs also can be used in combination with multiple Displace TV models to assemble “any sized TV,” according to the announcement. A single 16K display screen of up to 110-inches can be assembled by fitting multiple 55-inch Display TVs together. All Displace TVs wirelessly connect via Wi-Fi 6E to a base unit that is plugged into an electrical outlet and can be kept inside a closet or anywhere within the home.
“Displace completely reinvents the television with its hardware and software technologies, and user interfaces that will not only change the way people enjoy entertainment in their homes, but will also advance the entire television industry,” stated Balaji Krishnan, Displace TV founder and CEO. “We envision a world with multiple displays on walls delivering significant value to the consumers wherever they are inside their homes. In order to achieve this vision, it’s important to re-architect television by eliminating all common frustrations and making it extremely easy to secure televisions on any surface inside homes. By realizing this vision, Displace is effectively creating the next computing platform and the potential applications are limitless.”
Instead of common remote controls, Displace TVs are primarily controlled by natural hand gesture movements, in addition to touch and voice interfaces, “making it easy to browse, play and control content using hands,” the announcement said.
“Users simply push with their palm to play; pinch to zoom in or out; or literally reach out and grab what’s on the TV and throw it onto another Displace TV in the home. Content magically moves from one Displace TV to another when the user moves between rooms via proprietary computer vision technology,” the company said.
Displace TVs also use facial recognition and computer vision technology to seamlessly switch content between rooms when users move about the house. A button on top of the Displace TV also enables the feature to be switched off for privacy reasons, Displace stressed.
In addition to wireless battery power, the Displace TVs have “no wires and no ports” for content sources.
Display TVs will be taking “reservations” for pre-orders from its web site starting January 5th, with shipments slated for later in 2023, the company said. Pricing was not announced.
Each Displace 55-inch 4K TV ships with the following in the box:
One, two or four Displace TVs depending on the package purchased.
Battery charging unit
One base unit equipped with an AMD CPU, NVidia GPU and Wi-Fi 6E
Each OLED panel includes a 4K camera and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity
Four rechargeable batteries per TV and battery charging unit
Each 55-inch TV measures 48.2- width x 27.5- height x 1.2-inches thick.
