CES 2018: Samsung unveils “world’s first” modular MicroLED 146-inch TV
“The Wall” – the world’s first consumer modular MicroLED 146-inch TV – has been unveiled by Samsung at its annual First Look CES event.
The modular self-emitting MicroLED TV display is featured alongside Samsung’s latest innovations in display technology, demonstrating how television is evolving to offer consumers an outstanding viewing experience, while acting as a centralised connected smart hub to enhance everyday life.
Samsung explained that MicroLED technology delivers incredible definition, without restrictions to size, resolution or form. It is a self-emitting TV with micrometer scale LEDs, which are much smaller than current LEDs and serve as their own source of light.
The MicroLED technology featured in The Wall eliminates the need for colour filters or backlight, yet allows the screen to offer consumers the ultimate viewing experience, according to the South Korean manufacturer. The screen is said to excel in durability and effectiveness, including luminous efficiency, the light source lifetime and power consumption, setting the standard for future screen technology.
The module-based bezel-less design means consumers can customise their television sizes and shapes to suit their needs. The screen can adapt to serve different purposes, such as creating a wall-size display for multiple spaces.
“At Samsung, we are dedicated to providing consumers with a wide range of cutting-edge screen experiences,” said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
“As the world’s first consumer modular MicroLED television, ‘The Wall’ represents another breakthrough. It can transform into any size, and delivers incredible brightness, colour gamut, colour volume and black levels. We’re excited about this next step along our roadmap to the future of screen technology, and the remarkable viewing experience it offers to consumers.”
