Austrian ultra-luxury TV brand C SEED has announced its N1 TV in three sizes: 103, 137, and 165-inches. Not only is it a massive 4K TV, but it folds down when not in use. Seamless MicroLED panels make it all possible.
What a MicroLED TV Is
MicroLED technology utilizes microscopic-sized LEDs for displaying images. Each MicroLED pixel emits red, green, and blue light, contains the image information and adds the color. Each microLED pixel can be brightened, dimmed, or turned on or off.
MicroLED technology is similar to OLED TV technology. However, instead of using organic materials to construct the pixels which are somewhat unstable, MicroLED pixels are inorganic with no stability issues.
C SEED N1 Details
Using MicroLED technology as its foundation, the N1 is designed to enhance interior room design and transform the media display experience. This is done by combining cutting-edge technology with avant-garde style in a giant folding 4K UHD MicroLED screen.
With its minimalistic floor stand the N1 gives the impression of a one-piece sculptural element that reflects contemporary architectural sensibilities.
Once the screen unfolds it’s able to rotate 180 degrees left and right rotation it adjusts smoothly to all viewing situations. When not in use, it folds back into its base, opening up room space.
The N1 is machined from aerospace aluminum. This results in an unparalleled stiffness-to-weight ratio, providing advantages for the folding kinetics and picture quality.
The C SEED N1 includes HDR10+ support. Its special physical screen surface coating helps to produce the truest blacks and amazingly vibrant colors with practically no glare. This is especially important when viewing HDR content.
The C SEED N1 incorporates Adaptive Gap Calibration. This makes the borders between the screen panels disappear to provide a seamless visual experience.

The N1 is an “all-in-one” solution. This means no additional assembly or integration is needed except for placing it in a room where you prefer, connecting your sources, and plugging it into power.
Tip: The N1 is not a smart TV. There is no built-in streaming platform. It also doesn’t have a built-in tuner for the reception of over-the-air TV broadcasts.
The C SEED Legacy
The C SEED N1 continues a legacy that started with the award-winning C SEED 201 TV by Porsche Design Studio. Building on a decade of designing and manufacturing luxury TVs for high-end indoor, outdoor, and marine applications, C SEED is continuing its tradition of pursuing the best in making TVs with innovative design, engineering, and technology.
Tip: The C SEED N1 is designed for indoor use.
