Samsung introduces The Wall, world's first consumer 146-inch MicroLED modular television
09 January 2018, 02:09 | Jenny Fowler
Samsung Electronics has lunched "The Wall", a consumer modular MicroLED 146-inch TV.
The Wall, according to Samsung, is "the world's first modular tv" in that you can connect a bevvy of the screens together to create some form of massive TV setup. MicroLEDs are a lot smaller than regular LEDs, and they serve as their own source of light. The MicroLED screen is also attributed with excelling in durability and effectiveness, including luminous efficiency, the light source lifetime and power consumption.
'It can be customised to any size and delivers incredible brightness, colour gamut, colour volume and black levels.
We learned a year ago that Samsung had plans to showcase MicroLED technology at CES.
The Wall comes with an edge-to-edge display.
But it is the new 8K-capable Q9S that also has my attention, which isn't quite as big as LG's impressive 88-inch 4K OLED in terms of size, but with its 85-inch panel at 8K, I'd take the 7680x4320 resolution of 3840x2160.
Samsung’s Wall TV fits any new room in your home
Beyond its size, The Wall is a showcase for Samsung's newest display technology called MicoLED.
First Look also highlighted a variety of product zones, showcasing 8K-AI technology, 4K HDR Gaming, HDR10+, Smart TV experience and more.
Samsung visual display president Jonghee Han said the company's new flagship Wall screen was a "breakthrough" in television technology and could be customised to fit any lounge room.
Finally, Samsung has promised an 8K QLED TV lineup with AI-powered technology in 65-inch and larger screens to arrive in the second half of this year. South Korea and the U.S. will be able to purchase a QLED TV with upscaling to 8K in the second half of 2018. It will be available globally but will first come to Korea and the United States in the second half of this year.
Samsung's new flagship 8K TV uses a "proprietary algorithm" that will upscale lower-res video up to their Super Hi-Vision screen at 8K.
However, with the MicroLED tech in The Wall, the days of Samsung's QLED displays could be numbered once that tech can be scaled down to fit TV more easily integrated into the average home.
