LG exhibits off VR show with 10,000 nits of brightness

The SID Show Week 2024 convention is going on this week, and LG Show revealed plenty of next-generation OLED shows as a part of the convention, together with a VR headset show that appears designed to be as vivid because the solar.

The OLEDoS (or OLED on Silicon) panel for digital actuality that LG unveiled is a 1.3-inch display that LG claims is able to reaching an ultra-high brightness of 10,000 nits.

Only for comparability, we lately reviewed the LG C4 OLED TV, a mid-range TV that’s able to hitting practically 1,200 nits in our brightness checks. Greater brightness brings in additional particulars throughout vivid scenes in a present or film but in addition helps retain colour saturation throughout the day. And that’s a TV, a tool you usually sit anyplace from 6 to 10 ft away from within the common front room.

On the VR entrance, the Meta Quest 3 VR headset, launched late final 12 months, has an marketed brightness of 100 nits per eye. That is for a pair of panels that sits mere inches away out of your retinas. LG claims that is 40% brighter than the usual lens. Now we have learn that the panels within the Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional are micro-OLED and are rated to five,000 nits, however what you truly see might be nearer to 120 nits.

Assuming that’s true, can we anticipate customers with VR headsets that includes this LG OLEDoS to hit round 240 nits? That’s nonetheless a lot vivid and LG claims the panels provide an “unparalleled, vivid 3D expertise.” 

Past the astounding brightness LG is claiming, the OLEDoS VR show is claimed to be able to 3840 x 3840 decision and a 4,175 DPI pixel density. For comparability, the Sony PSVR 2 has a decision of two,000 x 2,040 pixels per eye.

We think about working two panels at that brightness degree could be a security concern in addition to system draining.  Nonetheless, word that there’s no phrase from LG on a headset that really may characteristic these panels. 

Different screens

LG Show additionally introduced a 1.3-inch OLEDoS 4k panel for smartwatches. It’s speculated to help 3D show capabilities and have mild discipline show expertise.

The corporate additionally unveiled two OLED screens designed for gaming. One is a curved 39-inch Extremely Large OLED with a 21:9 side ratio and a curvature of 800R, or the equal of curvature of a circle with a 31-inch radius. 

The opposite show is a 27-inch OLED monitor with a 480Hz refresh charge. The common gaming monitor ranges between 144 Hz and 240 Hz. Although, certainly one of our favourite gaming screens is the Alienware 500Hz, which hits 500Hz overclocked however 480Hz natively.

LG additionally unveiled shows for automotive with Superior Skinny OLED (ATO) shows in 12.3-inch and 17-inch sizes. They largely appear to be slight upgrades on earlier ATO designs. The corporate additionally continued their clear OLED prototypes, which look cool however appear nowhere close to prepared for public launch.
