Remember Samsung's Massive Wall TV? Now There's A Bigger One

Remember Samsung's Massive Wall TV? Now There's A Bigger One”

Samsung unveiled its first "The Wall" MicroLED TV at CES past year.

These days? The LCD and Plasma TVs of yesterday have been succeeded by more high tech devices, 4K TVs which come equipped with online access and a middle finger to traditional network stations as the likes of Netflix and YouTube make for more gripping entertainment.

If you're Samsung, the future is looking a lot more...modular.

Using MicroLED panels, the 2019 version of "The Wall" is an improvement on last year's version of the TV - which sported a 146-inch 4K display.

According to Samsung, it is the "next screen revolution with intelligent, customizable displays that excel in every performance category". It did say that a consumer version of The Wall will be launched in 2019. "A 75" 4K micro LED TV was announced during the Samsung preview event, along with an intriguing modular micro LED display that can be customised and expanded simply by adding more micro LED modules.

Thanks to the modular nature of Micro LED, this technology offers flexibility in screen size that allows users to customize it to fit any room or space. It also optimises the content resolution without compromising the pixel density.

Without impairing quality, Micro LED supports standard 16:9 content, 21:9 widescreen films, plus "unconventional" aspect ratios such as 32:9 or 1:1. The TV basically has individual modules of self-emissive MicroLEDs so users can even create irregular 9×3, 1×7 or 5×1 screen sizes if they so desire.

Finally, because Micro LED displays are bezel-free, there are no borders between modules - even when you add more.

MicroLED is Samsung's new display technology, based on a heavily miniaturized version of RGB light-emitting diode (LED) arrays used in very large commercial displays. This provides for an impressive, infinity pool effect which enables the display to blend into any living environment.
