The Evolution Of Television: CES 2024’s Transparent TV Revolution

TV manufacturers are showcasing their latest and greatest products at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which takes place from January 9 to 12 in Las Vegas. Some of the most impressive new technologies on display include completely transparent screens from Samsung and LG. Rather than simply watching shows, these screens are designed to incorporate animated content into real-life settings.

Samsung has recently unveiled its first fully transparent MicroLED display. The display is merely a centimeter thick and creates a hologram-like effect when it displays a specially designed animation. This animation then blends into the background. MicroLED technology offers various benefits, including brighter colors and minimal glare. However, it is not yet available for mainstream use, and Samsung has not announced any release date or pricing information. Currently, Samsung’s large MicroLED televisions that are 110 inches in size cost up to €150,000.

At the CES event, Samsung revealed the new Q950TS, an ultra-thin TV with a 99% screen-to-body ratio and 8K resolution. Meanwhile, LG, the brand’s long-standing rival, showcased the Signature OLED T, a 77-inch transparent TV that is expected to hit the market later this year. LG demonstrated the TV’s versatility by turning it into a virtual aquarium, displaying an image that seamlessly blended into the decor. Additionally, practical information like the time and weather can be displayed on a non-transparent band at the bottom of the screen.

Technological performance aside, these two models demonstrate that a transparent screen can not only blend seamlessly into the background when switched off but also offer sufficient image quality to create an illusion that could be used as a work tool or an entertainment device in various contexts. While this is not the first time that transparent TVs have been presented at major events of this type, these models offer unprecedented levels of picture quality.

Shortly, this type of screen is expected to be limited to professionals or the wealthy, as it is primarily intended for use as a work tool or in promotional roles in stores or public spaces. It will take several years for this technology to become accessible to the general public for home use.
