Border-Free TVs

Seamless LG SL80 & SL90 LCDs Are the Minimalist Future of A/V Tech

— August 2, 2009 — Tech
I hadn't realized how utterly outdated TVs with borders are until I saw the seamless lineup of LG SL80 and SL90 LCDs this morning. These bad boys promise to make the LCD panel, speakers and bezel look like a single piece.

The LG SL80 and SL90 LCDs will pack a bevy of features into their svelte frame, including LED backlighting and an incredible contrast ratio (for the SL90, it's 3,000,000:1, a best for LG).

Implications - Seamless LG SL80 and SL90 LCDs will definitely appeal to people with a distinct minimalist aesthetic bend. The TVs are incredibly thin and have a certain futuristic sensibility, with "1.15-inches in the thickness department, the SL90 also has a 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio and an ambient light sensor for dynamic brightness adjustment. The SL80 nixes the LED-backlighting, cuts contrast ratio to 150,000:1 and fattens up to 1.8-inches of thickness—all in an effort to cut costs"
Trend Themes
1. Border-free Screens - The development of border-less TV screens provides an opportunity for companies to create more immersive viewing experiences for customers.
2. Ultra-thin LCD Displays - The trend of ultra-thin LCD displays like the LG SL80 and SL90 creates an opening for companies to improve portability and aesthetic appeal in their products.
3. High-contrast Ratio Displays - The increase in contrast ratio in displays, as seen in the SL90, could lead to advancements in virtual reality technology and more accurate visual representation in other industries.
Industry Implications
1. Consumer Electronics - Companies in the consumer electronics industry could benefit from incorporating border-free screens, ultra-thin LCD displays, and high-contrast ratio displays into their products to improve customer experience and gain a competitive edge.
2. Advertising - Advertisers and marketers could make use of border-free screens to create more eye-catching and immersive digital displays for their campaigns.
3. Architecture and Interior Design - Architects and interior designers could incorporate border-free screens and ultra-thin LCD displays into their designs to create more visually appealing and futuristic spaces.
