LG Display, the wing of LG Electronics charged with developing and manufacturing panels for video displays, is attending this week’s 2016 Society for Information Display (SID) conference in San Francisco to unveil a variety of future-concept display technologies.

Featured items include next-generation 8K touch-screen monitors, double-sided OLED displays and a 77-inch 4K Ultra HD OLED display with a color gamut that is said to equal displays used for professional film editing.

The 2016 SID event is taking place May 24-26th at the Moscone Center, where LG said the theme of its showcase is “Your Imagination, Our Innovation.”

A big purpose for LG’s appearance is to emphasize “the advantages of OLED and in particular the superior picture quality it offers along with its unlimited potential in application and design.”

“LG Display will make constant efforts for technology innovation and move forward further developing advanced and differentiated technologies for next-generation displays, thereby strengthening our leadership in the global display industry,” stated Dr. Sang-Beom Han, CEO and Vice Chairman of LG Display.
