Samsung has introduced a truly monstrous 146-inch 4K TV rightly called “The Wall” at the CES tech show in Las Vegas. The Wall isn’t just another supersized TV. The humongous display uses Samsung’s Cinema Screen technology, which is designed for movie theaters, so 146 inches is only a starting size. Instead of the more conventional LED, plasma, OLED technology, or Samsung’s own QLED, the Wall is the first consumer TV to use MicroLED. In this tech, the pixel LED modules in a MicroLED display have their own light source, which eliminates the need for a separate backlight, or for color filters.
The MicroLED technology is pitched as a better alternative to OLED because it offers both deep blacks and bright highlights. The South Korean consumer electronics giant claims its modular technology will allow for TVs of customized sizes to be ordered. The Wall also doesn’t have any bezels and all the panels fit together seamlessly. “Screens should not be limited by size or space. Instead, they should be able to blend into any home,” said JH Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. The Wall is just a concept as of now and there is no word on how soon will it reach the markets.
