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.

....good for 96:9 movies anyway....


Thought #EAA: I wonder how many people know that no one ever says "What we've got here is a failure to communicate." in the movie "Cool Hand Luke" (1967).

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's a saying about "everything in moderation". If only it was applied to well, you know...

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?
