Stunning See-Through Displays: All About OLED Technology

Posted on Jul 6, 2022 10:07:42 AM

Any gathering space – whether it be a church, museum, educational center, or corporate office – can utilize technology to help capture attention and communicate information. While OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) Technology has been around since 2008, recent developments have given birth to transparent OLED display panels. Rather than requiring a dimly-lit space and a large housing for a backlight source, OLED panels produce images directly onto their thin, transparent displays. Inactive OLED panels appear to be regular panes of glass… until that glass explodes in a vivid spectacle of color and imagery. Some OLED panels even support full touchscreen capabilities like a tablet or smartphone.

The "organic" in OLED refers to the carbon-hydrogen bonds within the screen. These bonds allow OLED displays to deliver a wide color range (gamut) and massive contrast. Images displayed on OLED panels are clear and vibrant even in bright environments. OLED panels also boast a wide viewing angle of almost 180°, compared to ~90° on more traditional displays.

OLED panels also have the added benefit of printability and flexibility. Thanks to these properties, OLED panels come in a wide range of affordable sizes.

Endless Possibilities

OLED panels heighten interactivity and engagement in all settings – any organization can put OLED panels to good use. Consider just a few applications of OLED technology in a variety of settings.


  • Display pre-service announcements, images, and Scripture in the lobby, commons, hallways, and waiting areas.
  • Use OLED displays on the back wall to serve as a Confidence Monitor during service.  Between services the display disappears into the room’s decor.
  • Use OLED touchscreen technology in Sunday School and youth group studies to interact with information and images to heighten engagement.


  • Replace “uni-tasker”  plaques with OLED display cases that present a plethora of information directly onto the case.
  • Build massive murals of moving images and video to immerse visitors in a specific time or a location – without building an entire exhibit.
  • Create programs and activities for visitors to touch and interact with, solidifying information through engagement.

Educational Centers:

  • Replace whiteboards and projectors with a wall of OLED panels, merging display and interactivity into one package.
  • Make game day great with OLED panels in gymnasiums – display your team slogan, school colors, and highlights from your greatest sports triumphs.
  • Liven up visitor centers with OLED panels displaying helpful information for prospective students and parents to view and interact with.

Corporate Spaces:

  • Install OLED panels onto tables to create impressive conference rooms free of scattered documents.
  • Replace office walls with OLED panels – cover them with interesting images for privacy or leave them clear to make the space feel open and modern.
  • Make waiting areas enjoyable with flowing messages, interactive company information, and video content that visitors can interact with to learn about your business.

These are only a few examples of the practically limitless applications of OLED displays. This technology is versatile, compact, and affordable – the only limiting factor is creativity.
