Samsung Unveil 146-inch Modular 4K TV in Las Vegas

LG OLED Canyon Impresses CES Crowds

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.

LG invested in OLED technology decades before any other company.

Ever the videophile, Andru is also keeping his eye on the new TVs being announced, including a giant, 146-inch TV from Samsung called simply The Wall.

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

The company claims dramatically improved colour and brightness with the new technology.

But making its devices talk to each other is only the first step in what is clearly an ambitious plan to carve out a new presence for the Samsung brand in a rapidly evolving technology landscape. As the world's first consumer modular MicroLED television, "The Wall" represents another breakthrough.

They're all part of LG's ThinQ concept, too - which at this stage means the ability to learn your watching habits and (for the USA and Korea to begin with) direct Google Assistant interactivity. While that phrase sounds like typical PR/marketing hyperbole, we are actually inclined to trust Samsung's diagnosis in this case.

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 age of AI and machine learning, the company has just made one of its TVs a whole lot smarter, if the company is to be believed. So don't look for a massive roll-up TV in Best Buy just yet. This new TV is more of a technological showcase than a marketable commodity at least for the time being. Perhaps MicroLED can get brighter; Samsung hasn't specified yet. That's up to 30 times brighter than comparable OLED TVs.

Other key specs of "The Wall" include a full HDR support package with inclusion of full DCI-P3 wide color gamut and some essentially flawless contrast, with total black levels where needed alongside spectacularly high peak brightness as we'd mentioned above. Voice can also be used to search and explore Roku's entertainment selection. This results in a high contrast footage that is better than the traditional LCD screens.

Another cool feature of the Wall is that it can be customized to even larger sizes.

No word on when the screen - or the processor, for that matter - will be coming to market, but with a demo this polished, we'd expect to see this come out of prototype in the next year or two.
