LG Electronics (LG) has unveiled the world’s first rollable OLED TV in which the screen retracts into a box when not in use.

Built on a concept unveiled last year, the 65-inch Signature OLED TV R will be available this year for sale, the company announced on Monday at the CES 2019 here.

“A rollable OLED TV is a true game-changer, liberating users from the limitations of the wall and freeing them to curate their own personal space which no longer needs to be reserved full time for TV viewing,” said LG.

LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R can transform itself to offer three different viewing options — Full View, Line View and Zero View — allows customers to use the TV in ways that were impossible before the development of OLED technology.

Full View delivers a large-screen viewing experience revealing the full extent of the contrast, depth and realism.

Users can use their voice to get things done with Amazon Alexa, a new addition to LG’s AI TV lineup in 2019, as is support for Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit.

With Apple HomeKit support, customers will be able to control their LG TV using the Home app or by asking Siri.

Line View allows the TV to be partially unrolled, allowing for management of specific tasks that do not require the full TV screen.

“In Line View, users can choose from features such as Clock, Frame, Mood, Music and Home Dashboard,” said the company.

Microsoft,
Microsoft currently has 54 Azure Cloud regions -- more than AWS and Google combined.

LG Electronics has partnered Microsoft to help grow its autonomous vehicle and infotainment system business by leveraging Microsoft’s Azure cloud and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies along with LG’s future self-driving software developments.

LG will apply Microsoft’s AI knowledge to its Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), Driver-Status Monitoring Camera (DSM) and Multi-Purpose Front Camera products and incorporate Microsoft’s Virtual Assistant Solution Accelerator in LG’s infotainment systems.

With Azure Data Box service, data captured on the road can be uploaded automatically to create a library that helps the self-driving software grow even smarter, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Working together, we can empower automakers to deliver differentiated mobility experiences, create new services and revenue opportunities, and to build safer, more intelligent and more sustainable vehicles,” said Sanjay Ravi, General Manager, Automotive Industry at Microsoft.
