Screen of the Future: World’s First Modular MicroLED TV Debuts at CES 2018
Samsung today introduced the world’s first consumer modular MicroLED 146-inch TV dubbed “The Wall”. Made possible by Samsung’s advancements in semiconductor processing techniques and LED technology, the pixel LED modules of The Wall’s self-emitting technology are smaller than ever before, and each chip incorporates RGB color. As a result, The Wall’s self-emitting technology removes the need for color filters altogether and is able to deliver up to 2000 nits of peak brightness, brighter white hues, darker black shades and the truest natural colors.
Thanks to its module-based, bezel-less design, “The Wall” allows consumers to customize their television to the size and shape of their choice. That means this TV can be tiled or stitched together to cover virtually any size wall. Samsung claims it would be difficult to tell where the screen ends and the wall begins. Alternatively consumers could order “The Wall” TV in smaller screen sizes to suit any room in the home.
“Screens should not be limited by size or space. Instead, they should be able to blend into any home,” said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
