Panasonic has introduced a new TV called “Invisible TV” which turns a normal TV screen into a transparent glass when the TV set is switched OFF. The TV looks like an ordinary thin transparent glass until it is switched on and the HD picture is displayed.
Earlier this year, Panasonic revealed transparent TV at the gigantic Consumer Electronics Show but has updated its screen to OLED from LED as it was not fully satisfied with the with the transparency of the previous screen. The new OLED display does not need a backlight to give it a picture. The Japanese firm says that now when the TV is switched off the set is completely undetectable, allowing users to clearly see through it as new OLED display doesn’t need a backlight to give it a picture. Changing to OLED has not only increased the transparency but also has resulted in better image quality.
The thin TV was embedded into the front of a cabinet, as it looks like a glass sliding door. On pushing a button or waving a hand in front of the TV, the television screen instantly appears. Panasonic demonstrated that the OLED technology can be used innovatively by using it in wine refrigerator door displaying the temperature of the fridge etc.
Long before Panasonic, couple of TV manufacturing companies like Samsung and LG has demonstrated their OLED TVs
Transparent OLED is a breakthrough transparent display technology that displays dynamic or interactive information on a transparent surface glass. This revolutionary display allows users to view what is shown on a glass video screen while still being able to see through it. Designers can overlay text, digital images, and video content onto physical objects or scenes that sit behind the glass.
Transparent OLED displays are self-emitting and utilize cutting-edge Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology to eliminate the need for a backlight or enclosure, making it possible to create truly see-through installations in a virtually frameless glass design.
