LG Display signs partnership with Disney affiliate on OLED tech
LG Display Co. has inked a partnership deal with a Walt Disney Co. affiliate StudioLAB to better promote its OLED technology.
StudioLAB is a technology hub for advanced filming and editing technologies.
Under the deal, LG Display will provide OLED TVs that are designed for content production to Studio Lab for the next three years.
LG Display will first supply its content development-use OLED TVs to Walt Disney Studios, which owns film production companies like Marvel Studios, Pixar, and Lucasfilm.
LG Display, the world's leading large-size OLED panel maker, already installed its 88-inch LG Signature OLED 8K TV at Marvel Studios, for editing and post-production processes.
The two firms plan to collaborate in various projects that combine LG Display's OLED technology and Disney content, such as setting up an experience zone at Disney-run facilities.
In July, LG Display started mass-producing OLED panels at its second production plant, located in Guangzhou, China, which has an initial monthly production capacity of 60,000 OLED sheets.
Combined with LG’s first plant in Paju, South Korea, LG Display’s total OLED production capacity almost doubled to 130,000 sheets per month.
