Samsung’s “The Wall” display is even larger now at 219 inches
At CES last year, Samsung debuted “The Wall”, a 146-inch modular Micro LED display. Not to be outdone, this year they’ve brought a 219-inch version, and one which would be easier to fit into an apartment at 75 inches.
Using similar technology to last years’ model, the modular Micro LED display eliminates the need for a backlight, colour filter or bezel. The display is made up of microscopic self illuminating LED chips. Samsung says technological advances have made the home-friendly 75-inch model possible thanks to narrower gaps between each individual LED chip.
The modular nature of the display allows flexibility in screen size and aspect ratio. The LEDs themselves use an inorganic compound, delivering excellent brightness and colour reproduction, as well as perfect blacks by turning off individual LEDs.
The Micro LED displays are currently made up of tiles full of LEDs, meaning each tile can be placed separately to create different shapes of display for showing unconventionally-sized content.
While the technology is not ready for home use, Samsung is enthusiastic about the new technology and is pushing hard to have it ready in the next few years.
“For decades, Samsung has lead the way in next-generation display innovation,” said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “Our Micro LED technology is at the forefront of the next screen revolution with intelligent, customizable displays that excel in every performance category. Samsung Micro LED has no boundaries, only endless possibilities.”
