LG Display, Expects 40% of OLED out of total sales in 2020.

LG Display spoke that they plan to change the sales structure by focusing on the OLED sales at the conference call in Q2, 2017 which was held on 26 July, and they expected that the OLED sales portion among the total sales would be from 10% in this year to 40% in 2020.

Sang-don, Kim, the CFO of LG Display said that they will invest about 15 trillion won of production line for the Gen10.5 OLED and the Gen6 POLED(Plastic OLED) at Paju P10 factory against 4 years. He said that “The investment of Paju P10 is a leading task for the mass production and the improvement of efficiency because the demand of OLED TV is rapidly increasing by the forecasting of 2.5 million units in 2018 and 6 million units in 2020. We will take the P10 factory as an OLED hub.”

Coca-Cola’s Giant New Robotic LED Board In NYC.

More information is dribbling out about that giant robotic 3D LED board Coca-Cola switched on last week in Times Square. The vendor list is long, and the one most familiar to the digital signage community is Convergent, which is listed as doing Technology Design and Implementation, Content Management and Monitoring Services. If I was expressly in the LED board business several of these others would likely be familiar. The beverage giant says, in a company story: The 68-ft. by 42-.ft. sign required sophisticated engineering and rigorous testing for all weather conditions. Every high-resolution LED cube is programmed to independently extend and retract, extending out into the crowd and bringing the company’s portfolio of beverages to life in a way the team hopes will inspire thirsty onlookers to crave an ice-cold Coca-Cola. 

The video here is a Coke-produced piece that shows the robotic LED blocks doing their thing.

A separate video that shows the big LED beast has some issues more apparent at night – with LED blocks here and there not quite in sync. That’s going to happen with something this big, and there’s no way to soft-launch something like this. You turn it on, and tweak, tweak, tweak.

The crossroads of the world is now home to the world’s first and largest 3D robotic sign. Coca-Cola this week unveiled a new six-story digital spectacular in Times Square featuring 1,760 independently moving LED screens, choreographed to the content on display – creating a multisensory experience for the 300,000 people who pass through the busy Manhattan intersection each day.

Global outlook and trends

DOOH versus OOH
These are the headline findings in ‘Why Out Of Home Performs’, a joint study by Magna Intelligence and Rapport, IPG Mediabrand’s out-of-home agency, into OOH’s continued growth and impact. The report was based on findings from a survey carried out in 22 key markets including eight in Asia-Pacific: Australia, China, India, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.

Read more at:

The OOH market was worth $28 billion in net advertising revenues in 2016, according to Magna’s report, and is predicted to grow by 4 percent per year to reach $33 billion by 2021. This puts its current share of the overall traditional media market at 10 percent, up from 8 percent. Behind this growth is an ever-more concentrated supply-side market, in which the top international OOH media owners are continuing to expand their influence: the six main global vendors (in order of 2016 revenue size, JCDecaux, Clear Channel, Outfront, Lamar, Stroer and Exterior) now control almost 40 percent of the whole market (see graph, below). By 2021, the report predicts small but significant changes in the environments most used for OOH. Use of billboards, currently the top revenue-generating segment and performing particularly well in India, Russia and the US, will drop 4 percent from 45 to 41 in the next five years. Street furniture and transit, meanwhile, are due to grow, respectively, from 31 to 34 percent and from 14 to 15 percent as local authorities become more willing to partner with OOH vendors. A series of major contracts—typically over 10 years long—in big cities are also in the process of renewal, the first time this has happened in the era of DOOH and programmatic opportunities, which partly explains DOOH’s recent giant revenue leap.

Uniqlo starts selling clothes through vending machines.

Uniqlo has found a unique way to navigate the challenging period for bricks-and-mortar fashion retail: introducing vending machines that sell their products.

Over the next two months, the fast fashion retailer will roll out 10 vending machines over at airports and shopping centres in several major US cities, with the first Uniqlo To Go machine already up and running at Oakland International Airport in California.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the six-feet-high vending machines will sell mostly heat-retaining shirts and lightweight down jackets, and items will be dispensed in boxes and cans.

Customers can also return them at a store or by mail if they need to.

It is not yet know when, or if, the vending machines will be available in Uniqlo’s UK market, where it operates 10 stores.

The Japanese retailer is currently the world’s third largest retailer behind both Zara and H&M.

DOOH and mobile 'are converging'

Out-of-home media is attracting some unexpected advertisers as the medium’s digital capabilities expand and the possibilities grow for a more creative approach using real-time and contextually relevant content.

David McEvoy, director of marketing at outdoor advertising firm JCDecaux, observed that the internet giants Google and Facebook are now among the biggest spenders in out-of-home.

“Their digital platforms are built on smart, short-form, autoplay video ads where sound isn’t initiated and that’s exactly what digital out-of-home is now offering at large scale,”

“Out-of-home and mobile will continue to converge; there’s barely any differences and the Facebooks of this world are realising this.”

That process is helping OOH’s position as one of the very few traditional media channels to withstand the impact of digital and mobile, as it continues to grow – at 4.5% to £1.1bn in the UK last year.

The advent of digital OOH revolutionised the industry; throw in the location-tracking made possible by smartphones and the growth of programmatic and all sorts of new options are opening up.

A recent campaign for energy company E.ON, for example, geofenced OOH sites and then later served audio ads via the DAX platform to those consumers it had identified as having seen the poster: brand consideration increased 26% among these consumers, while likelihood to recommend climbed 31%.

Programmatic, meanwhile, is about more than simply automation of processes, according to Cadi Jones, commercial innovation director at Clear Channel.

“It’s about connecting brands more effectively with their audiences by allowing them to deliver the right message to the right audience at the right time,” she said.

“Ultimately, programmatic can revolutionise out-of-home – making it as flexible, measurable and creative as other media.

“It brings down buying barriers, making out-of-home even easier to buy,” she said. “This will bring new spend to out-of-home from ‘digital’ budgets and programmatic buyers, helping to grow out-of-home’s share of the media spend.”

Micro LEDs

Korean researchers at the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials are checking samples of micro LED displays made with roll to roll transfer process equipment.

A mass production technology of micro LEDs, which are attracting attention as a next generation display after organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), was developed by Korean researchers.

The Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials (KIMM) under the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning announced on July 24 that the institute developed technology of manufacturing micro-LED (LED) display using 'roll transfer process' for the first time in the world.

Using a roll to roll transfer process, the Nano Applied Mechanics Team at the institute developed technology to produce 'micro LED displays', which have luminous efficacy three times higher and a 50% reduction of power consumption.

Using this research result, it will be possible to manufacture micro LED displays, which are attracting attention as next generation displays such as transparent displays with high mechanical reliability and can be changed freely, 10,000 times faster than conventional LED displays.

The roll to roll transfer process is a technology whose patent belong to the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials. The TFT element is lifted and put on the desired substrate like putting ink on a roll, and the LED element is lifted up and placed on the substrate on which the TFT element is placed, completing an active matrix type micro LED display of a structure in which the two elements are combined.

Production speeds have been dramatically improved as production steps have been cut down. Current die bonder equipment, which makes conventional LED displays, can mount 1 to 10 LEDs on a substrate per second but through roll transfer technology more than 10,000 LEDs can be transferred per second. It takes more than 30 days to produce a full-HD 2-megapixel 100-inch digital signage via the current method, but the roll transfer process can finish the process within an hour and substantially slash process cost.

According to market research firm Market and Market, the micro LED market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 54.7% from US$ 250 million in 2017 to US$ 19.92 billion in 2025. The display sector is expected to account for 98% of the total micro LED market in 2025.

LG OLED raises the Lotte World Tower experience even higher.

At 555 meters/1,821 feet/123 stories tall, Lotte Tower is the world’s fifth tallest building. This skyscraping multiplex in Seoul hosts an observatory, a shopping mall, offices and a hotel, as well as a steady flood of visitors. Over four million people are expected to visit the building for the countless attractions it offers, but there’s a specific spot which is a favorite to all.

That spot is Seoul Sky, home to the world’s highest glass-floored sky deck observatory. To get to Seoul Sky, visitors step onboard Sky Shuttle, the world’s fastest double-deck elevator wrapped in a spectacular video wall made by LG.

Sky Shuttle passengers are treated to a minute-long ride that’s built to thrill, because the elevator is lined top to bottom with 55-inch LG OLED panels, three on each side and six on the ceiling, presenting an amazing high-definition display of the beautiful and ever-changing scenery of Seoul.

LG OLED technology delivers perfect black, infinite contrast and intense, accurate colors—perfect for immersing the passengers in an incredibly vivid experience. And because the LG OLED panels are unbelievably thin and lightweight, they don’t weigh the elevator down or take up room, allowing the Sky Shuttle to carry more people faster.

Down below, the Lotte World Mall attracts visitors with 40, 84-inch wide LG UHD LCD displays. LG’s In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology provides a wide viewing angle where colors remain true-to-life and text reads clearly to attract and engage visitors all throughout the large space.

The Lotte PR room also features LG digital signage, with a 1×6 video wall showing live surrounding scenery from CCTV camera feeds, supplemented with weather details and safety information.

Another place of interest at Lotte World Tower is Signiel Seoul, a premium hotel with breathtaking views of Seoul’s magnificent skyline. LG 60-inch hospitality TVs adorn the guest rooms, mounted on the wall so as to best complement the interior design.

With world-class technological capability and artistic potential, the global landmark Lotte World Tower chose LG to enhance the versatile space. And as LG has noted, the signage you choose has the power to move hearts and minds.
