Japan – Japan’s NHK public broadcaster was showcasing its latest 8K OLED screen at IBC, developed in conjunction with LG Display and Astra Design. Measuring a staggering 130” across, the current plastic ultra-thin model can drop from the ceiling in the style of a cinema screen, and comprises 4 separate 65” screens stitched together.

The screen is just 1mm ‘thin’. Engineers from NHK’s Science & Technology Research Labs, speaking at IBC, said the R&D team were working towards having the technology in place for retail by 2020, and the Tokyo Olympic Games.
