“We are thrilled to be recognised by leading industry influencers and the media for our commitment to deliver impactful outdoor visual displays, and we look forward to building new, innovative AV technologies that will further enhance the customer experience,” Kim says.

The displays’ reinforced composition and internal heating and cooling controls ensure uninterrupted performance even when exposed to extreme weather or temperature conditions ranging from -30 ℃ to 50 ℃, further driving continuous stress-free operations for users.

OHD Series has also been adopted in the Samsung Safety Truck, a technology for trucks that seeks to prevent road accidents. It has also been selected as one of the ‘25 best inventions of 2015’ by TIME Magazine.

The AV News Awards celebrates exceptional contributions made by individuals and companies to advance the overall industry.
