LG Display to Showcase Very Latest in Display Technology at CES 2012

World's largest 55" OLED TV panel, 84" Ultra Definition display to be featured

Seoul, Korea (January 9, 2011) – LG Display [NYSE: LPL, KRX: 034220], a leading manufacturer of thin-film transistor liquid crystal display, will showcase the very latest from its display product lineup at a private booth during CES 2012. The company's product line-up will include the world's largest 55" OLED TV panel and an 84" Ultra Definition (UD) display.

"The interest from many of the world's leading electronics makers is a testament to LG Display's reputation for the most innovative and best display technology products," remarked Dr. Sang Beom Han, CEO and Executive Vice President of LG Display. "Visitors to our booth will walk away excited about LG Display's extremely strong position to service the mobile, TV, and electronics industries in 2012 and beyond."

The Present and Future of Display Innovation

LG Display's booth will offer visitors a chance to experience the company's newest products as well as glimpse into the future of display technology. Among other showings, the exhibit will highlight the world's largest 55" OLED TV panel as well as world's highest resolution large-screen Ultra Definition technology.

At 55", LG Display's new OLED TV panel features remarkable image quality with no after image, as well as high contrast ratio of over 100,000:1 and an impressively wide color gamut. Not requiring a special light source, the panel adopts a minimalist structure thinner than that of a pen (5mm), and lighter than an LCD panel. The panel adopts White OLED (WOLED) technology with an Oxide backplane, demonstrating the effective application of OLED technology to larger panel sizes at a more cost efficient level.

With the world's highest resolution at 3480 x 2160, LG Display's 84" Ultra Definition (UD) display will leave visitors in awe with an image quality four times sharper than full HD. In addition to the 84" display, the company has also applied UD technology to other large-screen panels including a 60" and 72" display.

Also on exhibit will be LG Display's highly regarded AH-IPS panels including a 4.5" (720x1280, 329ppi) display designed for smart devices. AH-IPS technology, an advanced form of IPS, realizes 1.5 to 2 times the resolution of typical LCD panels resulting in better display of highly detailed images, more accurate colors, and lower power consumption.

In a special "Narrow and Borderless" booth zone, visitors will appreciate LG Display's commitment to design innovation and strategic partnership with leading electronics makers. Featured in the area will be products like Shuriken, the much praised solution for Intel's next generation Ultra Book laptop, as well as the 2011 International Forum Design Award winning, Blade monitor. The new series of ART TV and Cirrus products will also be on display in the area.

Finally, the booth's FPR 3D zone will feature products utilizing LG Display's innovative FPR technology that has changed the face of the 3D industry. A special DIY (do-it-yourself) demonstration will allow visitors to create images/video using 3D mobile phones and camcorders, and then view their creations via FPR 3D monitors and TVs, proving that 3D is not a future technology, but ready for use now in daily life with a market following that is growing rapidly.

LG Display's exhibit during CES 2012 is open to pre-arranged customers and media only, and schedules to visit the booth have already been confirmed with several global manufacturers. For information on a booth tour, please contact the individuals listed below.
