Displace: New wireless OLED TV with "Active Loop Vacuum Technology" announced

The company Displace wants to present an OLED TV at the CES that does not require any cables and is held to the wall by a vacuum. However, there are some inconsistencies in the announcement. It therefore remains exciting to see to what extent the company can meet expectations.

CES is known to many gamers as a typical presentation date for new processors and graphics cards, but a large number of other products are presented at the electronics fair every year. Among other things, the new company Displace wants to throw its hat into the ring this time: The company promises nothing less than the presentation of the world’s first wireless television.

Wireless TV with “Active Loop Vacuum Technology”

the official website of the company is quite taciturn, and the announcement video included below does not yet have too many details about the new television ready. Apparently, Prad was able to find out more – and the announcements made are varied. Displace’s OLED TV is not only supposed to be wireless, but can also be attached without any mounting material.

According to this, there is talk of “active loop vacuum technology” that is supposed to hold the 55″ screen on the wall. Vacuum attachment is not impossible in principle, but it would require a very smooth wall. It is also questionable what should be “active” on the attachment – after all, active suction would require a lot of energy, which the TV cannot draw from the mains due to the lack of a cable.

The announcement leaves legitimate questions unanswered. At least Displace has an explanation ready for the wireless power supply: This is to be provided by four batteries, which are housed in pairs of two on the left and right of the case and can be replaced during operation. Overall, you should be able to operate the 4K television for 180 hours before you have to charge it or replace the batteries.

However, it is unclear whether the 180 hours can actually be kept in practice or whether they are only possible in operation with minimum brightness. There are also some inconsistencies regarding the other specifications. Specifically, Displace speaks of an integrated gesture control, a base station for combining four corresponding displays and – particularly striking – the combination of an AMD CPU with an Nvidia GPU.

Since corresponding SoC solutions do not yet exist, the company would have to accommodate the hardware of a complete computer in the television – including the corresponding additional consumption. In addition, the operating system used would also be interesting in this case, after all, the ARM architecture has actually established itself in this market segment. It therefore remains exciting to what extent Displace can ultimately live up to the fueled expectations, or whether the wireless OLED TV is ultimately just an air number. You don’t have to wait long for the resolution: CES starts in a good two weeks, and Displace wants to be there with a booth.
