Ian Anderson of Samsung Electronics Europe presented these displays as an alternative to disposable signage. He added that the displays can be “more vivid and more engaging.”

A future version of the technology is expected to support higher resolution.

Also at the exhibition, Samsung was showing how one could daisy chain other models of Samsung displays to create a 2K or 4K video wall.

Meanwhile, Sony Digital Cinema was demoing its 84-inch 4K Bravia TV at its stand.
