LG’s Latest Signage Display Is Transparent, Touch-Enabled

LG Business Solutions USA has introduced its new 55″ LG Transparent OLED Touch Display (model 55EW5TF), which projects capacitive (P-Cap) film technology for an accurate touch experience along with great transparency.

Despite being transparent, the display generates rich colours and high contrast, says LG. Content can be seen at wide viewing angles to blend naturally into the display’s surroundings. The P-Cap touch film, meanwhile, offers fast, accurate response to user interaction with support for up to 10 touch points at a time.


The LG Transparent OLED Touch display itself is built with tempered, anti-reflective, shatter-resistant front glass to protect it for commercial use. It comes semi-assembled so that companies can install it in different structures and spaces depending on the physical environment and desired effect. It supports landscape and portrait orientation.

The TV is capable of up to 400 nits of brightness, depending on application, and a 150,000:1 contrast ratio. At its thinnest point, the display is only 7 mm (about a quarter of an inch) thin. 

Connectivity options come as part of the display’s digital signage box, including HDMI in, DP in/out, RS-232C in/out, audio out, USB 2.0 in, touch USB in/out and LAN and IR. It is Crestron Connected certified for seamless integration and automated control.

“This new model is like no other transparent touch display,” says Clark Brown, Vice President of Digital Signage, LG Business Solutions USA. “The OLED technology, with no backlight, allows for an ultra-slim design, while the P-Cap touch interface supports new, innovative digital signage applications in retail, hospitality, entertainment and other markets. It’s as close as you can get to interacting with bright, colourful content in mid-air.”
