Seeing Samsung's 'The Wall' MicroLED TV Made Me a Believer

Antonio Villas-Boas  Business Insider

Samsung was out to turn heads with its huge 146-inch TV dubbed "The Wall". We were told as the 2017 year ended, by none other than IHS Markit, that OELD TVs had shipped 133% ahead of last year's figures - not much of a leap really, from an already low figure.

A couple of years, has finally showcased the much-anticipated 65-inch 4K UHD rollable OLED display at in Las Vegas. Expect a hefty price tag.Samsung's "The Wall" is a giant 146-inch TV.

At achieving this latter PR stunt, The Wall succeeds wonderfully.

Among Samsung's various CES announcements were some innovative new TVs.

So what exactly are these other technologies?

Samsung revealed a television concept they're calling "The Wall". While that phrase sounds like typical PR/marketing hyperbole, we are actually inclined to trust Samsung's diagnosis in this case.

I'll talk about what's going on with the two most popular conventional TV technologies-LCDs (including most of what is marketed as LED sets) and normal OLEDs-in my next post, but in this post I'll discuss some of the more interesting alternative display technologies I saw at the show.

Ranking in at a world's first 88 inches television. It's not backlit like an LCD TV. Furthermore, just as is the case with OLED, the pixels (any one of several million of them inside a micro LED 4K TV bar) can turn off or on completely on an individual basis for flawless scene dimming and bright highlights.

The RGB subpixels should also ensure a wider colour spectrum too, for an overall brighter, punchier picture than OLED, but still retain with the same great black levels and off-axis viewing.

So with all this on the horizon, should you hold back on buying a 4K TV right now? According to the Japanese manufacturer, this new model offers the best image quality yet in the history of its Bravia TV range.

While the roll-up screen drew plenty of attention at CES yesterday, Sony and Hisense also showed off a new take on televisions, debuting short-throw 4K projectors that could create displays of more than 100 inches in size. The Wall claims to produce 2,000 nits of brightness and this technology, even though it is still emerging is more longlasting than its closest competitor, the OLED.
