Samsung used CES 2018 to show off the world’s the world’s first consumer modular MicroLED 146-inch TV. That’s a 370cm screen size or, if you’d prefer 3.7 metres.
The MicroLED technology featured in The Wall eliminates the need for colour filters or backlighting, which promises much improved durability, luminous efficiency, and reduced power consumption. ‘The Wall represents another breakthrough,’ said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics (pictured above). ‘It can transform into any size, and delivers incredible brightness, colour gamut, colour volume and black levels. We’re excited about this next step along our roadmap to the future of screen technology and the remarkable viewing experience it offers to consumers.’
Samsung also featured the world’s first QLED TV featuring 8K AI technology, which upscales standard definition content to 8K resolution. It employs a proprietary algorithm to adjust screen resolution based on picture quality characteristics of each scene, which Samsung claims improves picture quality by transforming any type of content from any source into a high-resolution 8K image. ‘This 8K solution maximizes the viewing experience through several new features,’ said Han. ‘These include detail enhancement; noise reduction, edge restoration, and automatic sound adjustment.’
Industry analysts have suggested that by the time both new models are released, they might include Samsung’s ‘Bixby’ voice recognition system, which will allow you to change channels and adjust volume, brightness and other parameters via voice control, rather than an ordinary remote.
The 8K AI QLED TV will go on sale in the USA during the second half of 2018.
