Samsung Unveils The Wall

Samsung Unveils The Wall

The MicroLED technology featured in The Wall eliminates the need for color filters or backlight, yet allows the screen to offer consumers the ultimate viewing experience, according to Samsung. Stream TV had a 65-inch 4K version (that it said features 8 million pixels), which should be shipping from partners later this year, and announced a partnership with Chinese panel maker BOE to build 8K sets.

It wouldn't be Consumer Electronics Show, better known as CES, without a new crop of impressive televisions.

The other really unusual technology was Samsung's MicroLED technology. Most recently, at IFA 2017, Samsung unveiled The Frame which lets an aesthetically conscious TV owner hide their TV in plain sight, disguising it as a painting or a piece of art. In other words, the TV is comprised of smaller display components that can be added or removed to achieve the desired size. While that phrase sounds like typical PR/marketing hyperbole, we are actually inclined to trust Samsung's diagnosis in this case.

Keane was tipped as O'Neill's potential successor in the national gig but could now be with him at the Potteries. Still, it would be a surprise if the manager didn't keep Delaney informed of yesterday's developments.

We covered this subject recently in a post on the future of QLED technology (essentially another name for the micro LED tech of "The Wall" TV) and discussed how it might advance enough to replace OLED or conventional LCD displays to become the dominant type of display for most near-future TVs. The Samsung Q9S is a pretty large QLED TV by itself, even if it can't compare to the aforementioned The Wall, but it makes up for that by rendering content in all its 8K glory.

Because each LED can turn on or off individually, MicroLED has the potential for infinite contrast, just like OLED TVs.

"It can transform into any size, and delivers incredible brightness, color gamut, color volume and black levels". It's not the same technology as OLED, and Samsung says it offers the ideal blacks of OLED but can get much brighter and has fewer off-axis color issues. Speaking of range, it will most probably be out of our range as it will be heavily priced. As absurdly big as its 146 inch display surface is, Samsung has said that the screen is modular, meaning that it can be both shrunk down or enlarged as needed to cover a whole wall. We're not expecting this giant's price tag to even remotely fit any ordinary home theater budget.
