Transparent TVs from Xiaomi

Transparent TV sets, although they are created, remain only a curiosity. We could watch the Xiaomi transparent TV in Europe not so long ago. It looks great, but what is it for? Read on!

How does Xiaomi Transparent TV work?

The Chinese concern Xiaomi has the habit of surprising with innovative device designs. An example of such equipment is the phenomenal smartphone Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha. The Xiaomi Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition TV has also joined the group of products straight from the future.
What „magic” makes the Xiaomi Transparent TV work? Some of the answers can be found in the name itself. The device uses an OLED panel. Putting on such a panel is a kind of necessity. Unlike LCD matrices, OLED displays do not need a separate backlight. The presence of such a module would make it impossible to create a transparent screen.
The OLED matrix itself is not transparent, however. So it was necessary to use its special variant, RGBW. To understand the difference, it is necessary to refer to the knowledge of what a pixel consists of – sub-pixels of white, blue, green and red colors.
On Xiaomi’s transparent TV, however, only half of each pixel is made up of colored sub-pixels. The second part is transparent. This made it possible to construct a screen that displays a color image when the video is turned on and goes back to transparency when it is turned off.
The transparent display means that it is a TV without a back covering the necessary components. Somewhere, however, it was necessary to find a place for them. For this reason, the Xiaomi Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition has a round base in which they fit.

Who can use a transparent TV?

To answer this question, please refer to the technical specifications of the device. This TV set has a screen size of 55 inches and a Full HD resolution (1920 × 1080 pixels). As already mentioned, it is a matrix made in OLED technology. This means that the colors are reproduced naturally. This is especially true of black, which is deep and not slightly grayish as is the case with LCD displays.
However, the TV is not only an image, but also sound and software. Dolby Atmos surround sound technology is responsible for the listening experience. It is also a smart TV thanks to MIUI TV, the manufacturer’s cover for Android TV.
So who will need the Xiaomi Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition transparent TV? The unusual appearance of this equipment attracts attention. For this reason, business customers may be interested in it. Such a TV set will look great in public places. Even shops can be interested in it. Presentation of available goods, prices and promotions on a device with such a unique appearance may be more effective than on a traditional screen.
Buying a transparent TV set is also a good choice for an art gallery. Displaying graphic works or photos of artists, for example during modern art exhibitions, would emphasize even more the contemporary nature of the works and the place of their presentation.
Individual customers will also benefit from the advantages of a transparent TV set. It can be a good choice for gamers due to its good screen refresh rate (120 Hz). Due to the average diagonal, this equipment will also work well for people who have smaller apartments.
Who, however, the Xiaomi TV will not be useful? Certainly for people who value the highest image quality, i.e. 4K or 8K. In addition, due to the design of the base, it cannot be hung on the wall.

Is it possible to buy a transparent TV?

The above description may encourage many people to buy a transparent TV. Where to find this amazing equipment? Unfortunately, in none of the European stores. This device is only available in China. Xiaomi is not the only company that offers a transparent TV set. Who else produces such devices? Among others, LG and Panasonic – their TV sets are also difficult to obtain in Europe.
Transparent TV is no longer science fiction. It is a reality that once could only be dreamed of. Although these types of televisions are not yet as perfect as classic designs, over time they will probably catch up with their more ordinary counterparts. Would you buy a transparent TV?
