LG Shows Rollable Signature OLED TV R at CES 2019

What was merely a technology demonstration last year is now a consumer product. The rollable OLED TV is a reality!

This thread is basically a placeholder for whatever pictures and video clips I come up with. Saw and heard it this morning, it's certainly a compelling "feature" now if only they can do an 88" lol.

All it does is slide straight down into a slot, is that the definition of rollable? My idea of rollable was something that could roll like a paper sheet. It still won't save you space below becuse the big bulky base will always have to be in place, whether or not you pull up the screen.

Motorized TVs have been around for a long time so I guess they can corner that market now. This would be perfect for foot of your bed.



For my setups I would have to find a place to put my components since this doesn't seem to allow storage. And then I'd be staring at a blank wall so I guess I would need to buy some artwork. Or maybe buy another wallpaper TV to put behind it.

It´s pointless only in your low imagination. You can completely hide the TV screen. Perfect for new interior designs and the WAF. You can stand it in front of a window (the bethroom clip), a picture on the wall or in front of an even bigger fixed frame projection screen to combine the best of both world.




You save space for transportation and it´s much easier to carry the ROLED than a conventional TV.

This is the future.

But it's not completely hidden. There is still that big box sitting on the floor.


I'm also of the opinion that rollable TV means something I can literally roll up and take with me. This is still very much a two man lifting job with that box.

Uhh, you think the screen is magical? Of course it rolls onto a drum-roller as it slides down into the base. Hence "rollable" TV.

Nice, you can use it also as a Stand-Alone sound-system. I guess WiSA is also integrated, so you can combine it with wireless speakers as a center solution.

What you see with your eyes is a screen sliding down into a slot at a 90 ° angle, that's not how i define rollable. Like a guy above used the word, motorized oled would be a better way to describe it.
There has been some speculation of rollable oleds that could be made so thin that they fold , this certainly is not it, this is rollable only by name.

IMHO, the "rollability" will be an attractive feature for very large home theater-sized screens. With the point being that you can easily bring it into your house.

Or as others have said, for a smaller TV like this, the advantage would be rolling it up and taking it with you (to multiple rooms or multiple locations).

This model seems more about making news for marketing reasons.

Nice concept. Not sure it's worth 3 or 4 times the cost of an E9 which will produce the same image and use the same chipset.

Ya might help the guys who transport the tv to your house, but to me, it just looks more gimmicky. If you had space issues in your room on the wall above , you'd have to slide it back to the top anyway to watch it, meaning when you watch it , it will occupy the same space a standard tv would.

So this oled doesn't slide down into a slot at a π/2 rad. angle, just lik the demonstration video shows? if it does, i dont see it fitting the definition of rollable. but great if you are impressed by what you see at the show floor.

I think they'll charge you a 5 figure dollar price for this fashionable gimmick, if you'd have that budget, i would rather look at the 8k oled (Z9), which would produce a better image than a C9/E9.

The screen rolls up in the box, it might not be exactly what people wanted as a rollup screen but it is what it is.

I'm not into debating semantics. It's not stored flat inside the box. It rolls up. So it's rollable.

It rolls onto a roller in the box. Just because the roll is inside a box doesn't make it not rollable .

I'm going to put a full size vertical center channel speaker behind it, and when doing casual TV watching I'll use the built in speakers as a center, or use a phantom center. When I want to watch something critically, the TV will get rolled down to the floor and the perf projector screen will drop down from the ceiling in front of the center channel.

I haven't had a full size center channel for years since I want a regular TV in addition to the drop down PJ screen. This solves the dilemma.

And the debate is about semantics, and where i dont agree with you, sliding up straight at a 90 angle is not rolling.

Does "retractable" work for you? That seems to have adequately described the "rollable" projector screen I have on my ceiling for years. It also goes into a magic slot.

With projector screens, the common word used is motorized. and like i said earlier, you could call this a motorized screen.

Not all PJ screens are motorized. There are many manually retractable screens. They all have one thing in common though, they are all rolled onto a roller.
