In IFA2016, there were 11 companies that displayed OLED TVs, including LG Electronics. These companies were Vestel, Skyworth, Loewe, Philips, Grundig, Seiki, Metz, Changhong, Panasonic, and Condor, in the order of display scale.
In IFA2016 there were 6 companies, but this time 5 more companies joined the league. This is almost a double growth rate. At this exhibition, 1 company, Haier, did not return to participate and the new participants are Loewe, Philips, Seiki, Metz, and Condor.
Among these participants, Loewe stands out in particular.
Furthermore, in the Loewe OLED TV PR panel it is written as follows. “OLED display thinner than a smartphone” and “The most beautiful OLED TV in the world”.
Philips used the entire space for displaying TVs to present OLED TVs aside from the walls. On the walls there were LCD TVs, but OLED TVs were presented at the center so that participants can view the space three-dimensionally.
Hence, this was a display that showed that LCD TVs will be replaced by OLED TVs.
The most dynamic display of LG Electronics is the Skyworth indeed. It is a car racing game video that informs the high-speed response speed of OLED TV that has been presented since IFA2015. The difference with the previous display was that the products’ OLED panels have all been applied with HDR. They became brighter than last year.
Hisense was company that showed displays, although not selling OLED TVs. So, including Hisense, there were 12 companies in total. In a bid to promote the ULED TV’s superiority, which it is currently selling, Hisense presented a display that compared ULED TV with the OLED TV. The product that has been used in this exhibition was an OLED product from last year. When actually observed, it was darker than the ULED TV. However, at Skyworth, of which the booth was right next to it, the super high-definition OLED TVs are displayed. The booth location was badly selected for Hisense.
