Tech2 goes around the World IT Show 2012, Seoul
| by Rossi Fernandes
Tech2 was part of an entourage that was invited for the Korea IT Show and the 8th Korean Communications Conference held at the COEX Convention Centre in the heart of Seoul, South Korea. After Monday evening’s press meet that was held at the same location, we were given a glimpse of what was going to be shown off at the main show the following morning. The pre-event press party was just a teaser of what was in store.
The expo was split into sections, each one positioned in a different hall in the large COEX Convention centre that spanned several floors. Each floor had a rough theme to it. For example, there was one for security- related solutions and another one for 3D and consumer electronics. This was the one that particularly interested us. The biggest attractions by far were of course, the two Korean technology giants - Samsung and LG.
LG had a massive set-up positioned, right next to Samsung. The emphasis was clearly 3D - large experience stations were set up offering audiences the chance to check out everything from notebooks to TVs to even phones. We were greeted by large tables holding LG’s passive 3D glasses.
One of the interesting demonstration stations was one where there were three displays connected together and a force feedback steering wheel, along with a force feedback enabled seat. Of course, the displays were based on LG’s IPS panels and were 3D-enabled.
Need for Speed running on a fully souped up system
One of the displays on show was touch-enabled, which allowed an artist to draw sketches using tools available onscreen. The display seemed pretty responsive and we can see this kind of technology - propelling high-resolution displays in the future, as more than just a place for entertainment. They could be the future electronic blackboards offering collaborative features. Another display allowed two users using different glasses to view different content on the same display.
LG's UD TV on display
Another cool display of the future was LG’s ultra-definition television. Externally it looked like any other LCD panel, but you could see it was denser, especially when you stood close to it. It appeared noticeably smoother overall. 4K displays are still a long way off from becoming mainstream, but LG’s making a point - it may be a while, before it’s here, but it’s inevitable.
