Jasco recently announced the availability of the Planar LookThru Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) transparent display to the local market off the back of its recent distribution partnership with manufacturer, Leyard. The Planar LookThru OLED transparent display is pioneering technology that uses OLED technology to eliminate the need for a backlight or enclosure.

The Planar LookThru OLED transparent display allows users to view video content, digital images and text on a virtually frameless glass display with 45 per cent light transmissivity, while designers are now empowered to overlay digital content onto real objects or scenes positioned behind the glass.

“This transparent OLED display product allows marketers to create display experiences that were not possible previously. In so doing, it revolutionises the practice of storytelling by providing new surfaces for communication with a futuristic aesthetic that appeals to multiple industries and applications,” says Paul Divall, managing director of Jasco Broadcast Solutions.

The 55-inch Planar LookThru OLED transparent display is self-emissive with brilliant picture quality, exceptional contrast and wide viewing angles. It is ideal for a broad range of applications including retail, corporate and museum settings, or integrated into any environment in which glass is used including room dividers and conference halls.

This display is available in two mechanical configurations – a model for table-top or ceiling-mounted installations as well as a model for flush-mounted installations and can be used in both portrait and landscape mode or tiled to create large, eye-catching video wall arrangements.

With optional touch screen interactivity that offers 32 simultaneous touch points, a brilliant picture quality in a large viewing size, the Planar LookThru OLED transparent display features proprietary Extended Ruggedness and Optics (ERO) technology to deliver a surface that is highly durable to withstand the rigours of high-traffic environments and interaction. Furthermore, the Planar LookThru OLED display comes with standard digital inputs including HDMI and DisplayPort, and can be fully controlled by using RS-232, LAN, Crestron and other control systems.

It is compatible with sources ranging from PCs and players to consumer video devices that rely on High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) compliance. “This is ground-breaking display technology that has application in many areas, with many functions. With the addition of touch interaction, these displays can be used to create incredible installation pieces and with these displays, glass can have all the benefits of interactive digital signage while allowing consumers to see the product or scenes behind the display,” concludes Divall.
