LG Mirror Display functions as a TV and as a mirror, watch out Samsung

Published

on

LG is reportedly working on launching a smart mirror TV (way before Samsung does) which will work as a TV as well as a mirror. The report has come to Android Updated courtesy of Letsgodigital.

In May 2017, LG Display applied for a patent for a ‘Mirror Display’. The patent was published on 5 March 2019 by the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office).

Where the design of Samsung was a square screen we see that LG chooses a 4: 3 ratio. An LCD or OLED display can be used. The mirror TV from LG also has touchscreen functionality. For this purpose, use is made of a so-called in-cell touch sensor. This technology makes it possible to implement a touch screen, without this having an adverse effect on the thickness of the screen.

The TV with mirror has three positions, in the display mode, you have a regular television at your disposal. There is also a mirror mode, where the entire screen functions as a mirror. The third mode is multimode.

In the multi-mode, the TV images are shown in the middle of the screen, while the edges function as a mirror. It is a fairly technical patent, which describes in detail how this is made possible. Basically, it comes down to LG’s mirror TV consisting of sixteen surfaces, which are equipped with all kinds of sensors and electrodes.

In the multi-mode, only the inner four planes show moving images, ie transmitted light. The outer 12 planes function as mirrors by showing reflected light.

Although the mirror display can be used for TVs, there are other applications to think about. Such as the automotive industry, where the mirror of the passenger can also function for showing multimedia. Such a mirror TV can also offer a solution in clothing stores.

LG already has a lot of experience with digital signage, for example, the Korean company has Mirror Signage (49MS75A-7BB) in its range. This is also used by the clothing industry, but also in hotels and fitness areas. The patented Mirror Display from LG seems to be a logical development, where (in the first instance) companies, in particular, will show interest.

LG also announced a Smart Mirror at CES 2019. However, remarkably few details were revealed regarding this smart mirror. It became clear that this mirror is provided with artificial intelligence and makes it possible to fit virtual clothing.
