Talk about curved OLEDs! Panasonic combined six of them—some concave and some convex—and strung them together in a wave. Each panel was 55" with UHD resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate. Very cool-looking, but impractical for any home-theater application I can think of.

 

The Panasonic curved OLED "wave" was a real crowd pleaser.

Well Vinnie97, one of the kindest and most helpful and respected members here, got one of these. I wonder how much longer before I get such a message...

You can't think of video signage that is freed from having to be flat as an application?

That's the future of curved displays... They'll conform to the exterior of displays, storefronts (with weatherproofing of course), the edges of stadiums and such... It's a pretty giant market. Of course, Panasonic won't likely be in it....

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

Actually, I should have said "home-theater application."

I imagine if your tripping on something seriously illegal, the ribbon of TVs eventually looks flat. smile.gif

Wonder how many graphics cards it would take to drive a three screen eyefinity setup?
