LG unveils super-thin hotel TV

The 65EV960H is one of the first TVs in the world to incorporate Dolby Atmos sound.

LG Electronics USA Business Solutions unveiled the LG OLED "Wallpaper" hotel TV, a razor-thin display that becomes one with the wall. LG said it is the world's first 65-inch class OLED wallpaper hotel TV (model 65EV960H). Due to the ability to turn pixels completely on or off, LG OLED TVs render perfect black levels – and therefore infinite contrast – to display vibrant colors, immersive details and lifelike images that LCD displays cannot produce.

"The LG OLED Wallpaper Hotel TV lives up to the unrivaled ability of OLED to deliver the very best picture quality available today, and its sophisticated form factor will not only capture guests' attention but leave a lasting impression," Michael Kosla, VP of hospitality, LG Electronics USA Business Solutions, said in a statement. "As the world's first LG OLED Wallpaper TV for hotels, this innovative new display is sure to revolutionize the way luxury hotels and resorts elevate the in-room experience for premium guests."

At just 3.86mm (0.15 inches) thin, the 65EV960H can be installed in luxury hotel suites using ultraslim mounting brackets with a magnetic mat to create a  seamless design that becomes one with the wall. Its electrical components are housed in the device's media box, connected through an ultrathin flat cable, which allows the panel to lie flush against the wall like a piece of art and makes installation a breeze. The Ultra HD OLED display's inventive technology can be seen from wide viewing angles, so guests can enjoy the TV's rich color and crisp picture regardless of their seat in the room.

The TV's powerful 4K upscaler enhances the details and colors of non-4K content on the screen's 8-million-plus pixels. The 65EV960H is one of the first TVs in the world to incorporate Dolby Atmos sound, allowing viewers to hear surround sound like never before with overhead audio for a theater-like experience in the comfort of their hotel room.
