Samsung unveils first Mirror and Transparent OLED display panels

samsung-mirror-displayWhen it comes to the world of consumer electronics, the folks over at Samsung can be considered to be ruthless, a juggernaut that steams forward without stopping at all, where it intends to conquer many different aspects of consumer electronics – from the smartphone to tablet, to appliances in the kitchen and living room, among others. Desktop computers are not exempt, either, and so too are monitors. In fact, Samsung has recently unveiled their maiden attempt at Mirror and Transparent OLED display panels that are bound to wow – making these a very welcome departure from the standard issue monitors that they have rolled out in the past.

The new Samsung Display OLED panel technology will offer a digital viewing platform that is guaranteed to make the consumer purchasing experience a whole lot more visually engaging. Integrating Samsung’s OLED display technology with Intel Real Sense technology, the end result is a visually compelling, interactive closet or “self-modeling” wardrobe which will be able to let consumers virtually “see” clothes as well as other retail items, all from an extremely realistic, customized perspective.

The two technologies would work in tandem with one another to create a “virtual fitting room” and that will come in handy to assist consumers to vividly see themselves when they try on new clothing apparel, shoes or jewelry which they might be inclined to purchase. The Intel technology segment will bring human-computer interaction to the next level of visualization, as it merges consumer-grade 3D cameras with an easy-to-use, automated library of stored “perceptions” to simplify camera enhancement efforts of software developers.

As for the Samsung Mirror Display, it could very well oust home mirrors down the road, as it delivers digital information services to sophisticated consumers in the same space where the traditional mirror now stands. This Mirror OLED display panel will have over 75% reflectance level, as it delivers a minimum of 50% higher reflectance than competitive Mirror LCDs, in an exceptionally high contrast ratio (over 100,000:1) and a much faster response time (under 1ms). There is also no need for the ambient backlight to display on-screen images that LCD technology requires. You can’t just sashay into a shop and purchase either at this point in time though.
