It could be the TV you need a bigger apartment to watch.

Samsung has revealed a radical new TV called ‘The Wall’ that is 12 feet wide at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

It will battle a radical rollup 65inch TV from arch rival LG in the war to create a next generation TV set.

HOW IT WORKS 

Samsung’s modular ‘Wall’ works on the same principle as stadium scoreboards, where the pixels are made up of LEDs. 

It is a self-emitting TV with micrometer (µm) scale LEDs – which are much smaller than current LEDs, and serve as their own source of light.

The MicroLED technology featured in The Wall eliminates the need for color filters or backlight, yet allows the screen to offer consumers the ultimate viewing experience.  

 

The TV is the fist to use a new technology called ‘MicroLED’, which are much smaller than current LEDs in TVs.

‘As the world’s first consumer modular MicroLED television, ‘The Wall’ represents another breakthrough,’ Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, said yesterday.

‘It can be customised to any size and delivers incredible brightness, colour gamut, colour volume and black levels.

‘We’re excited about this next step toward the future of screen technology and the remarkable viewing experience it offers consumers.’

No pricing, or resolution, has been announced, but Samsung says its MicroLED TV will ship sometime this year.

Also, Samsung says the MicroLED screen excels in durability and effectiveness, including luminous efficiency, the light source lifetime and power consumption, setting the standard for future screen technology.

LG also showed off a rollup 65inch TV set at the CES show, which can be easily sotred when not in use or for transport.

Featuring a module-based, bezel-less design, ‘The Wall’ also exemplifies how consumers can customize their television sizes and shapes to suit their needs. 

The screen can adapt to serve different purposes, such as creating a wall-size display for multiple spaces, the firm says.

Samsung also featured the world’s first QLED TV featuring 8K AI technology, which will be launched internationally, starting with Korea and the US during the second half of 2018.

This AI technology upscales standard definition content to 8K resolution. 

It employs a proprietary algorithm to adjust screen resolution based on picture quality characteristics of each scene, to continuously improve picture quality and easily transform any type of content from any source into a high-resolution 8K.

CES is expected to attract more than 170,000 people from around the world over the next three days, and has already seen a number of strange gadgets.
