CES 2018: Samsung reveals enormous modular MicroLED television you can build yourself

Share

Last night, Samsung unveiled its vision for the future of the living room: The Wall, a 146-inch 4K TV made up of MicroLED panels.

Samsung's The Wall is the world's first modular MicroLED 146-inch TV.

Samsung used micrometer-scale LEDs to build The Wall, much smaller than what is now available. The company has introduced, a massive 146-inch modular MicroLED TV known as "The Wall" along with Q9S, an 85-inch 8K OLED TV with AI technology.

'It can be customised to any size and delivers incredible brightness, colour gamut, colour volume and black levels. The suggestion is that MicroLED will scale larger than conventional display technologies, including OLED which become prohibitively expensive to produce beyond 65-inches.

But a video posted to Twitter showed products that had fallen from the shelves of a San Leandro Safeway store. The quake serves as an important reminder that the "Hayward Fault is ready to go", Knudson said.

Samsung is pitching its new display as the screen of the future.

The new AI technology from Samsung is capable of upscaling any video content into an 8K resolution, it does this by creating more details, reducing noise and altering the content. A more traditional 4K TV is still the best available without breaking the bank. Han is the President of Visual Display Business, and Das is the Senior VP of Consumer Electronics, Samsung, America. Samsung claims it would be hard to tell where the screen ends and the wall begins. It will be available globally but will first come to Korea and the USA in the second half of this year.

At CES Samsung also showcased its first QLED TV featuring 8K AI technology, which is due to launch internationally in the second half of 2018, starting in Korea and the US. Employing a proprietary algorithm for resolution adjustment, it consistently improves image quality, and can "easily transform" any content from any source into 8K high-resolution!

"2018 Samsung Smart TVs will also offer easier sharing and connectivity, thanks to SmartThings, Samsung's IoT platform hub". To help find what to watch, Universal Guide will act as a program guide and offer recommended TV shows based on viewing habits. These areas gave guests at First Look 2018 the chance to get hands-on Samsung's most exciting innovations in TV.
