Samsung's MicroLED Wall to ship in July
Walls we actually want to see
On show in two sizes at CES in January, Samsung’s 8K MicroLED monster screen is now dubbed The Wall Luxury and is destined for top-of-the-line residences and exclusive environments from July.The global launch of the latest version of The Wall was announced at Infocomm 2019 and is designed to highlight innovations in display technology and show the potential of Samsung’s MicroLED technology.
The modular nature of MicroLED means that display sizes can start at 73-inches in 2K definition and go all the way up to the latest enormous iteration of 292-inches in 8K, with a whole range of sizes and screen ratios possible in between. To put it in perspective, 292-inches is 7.5 metres, or the size of a small bus.
As well as scalability, MicroLED also provides other benefits. It uses self emitting microscopic LEDs to produce the red, blue and green colours. This mirrors OLEDs self emitting properties and matches its impressive contrast and black levels but since MicroLED uses inorganic rather than organic LEDs, the potential for screen burn is eliminated and the life expectancy of the display can be up to 100,000 hours.
The Wall Luxury is powered by the Quantum Processor Flex AI picture engine which uses machine learning to analyse millions of image data to produce the optimal picture on a scene by scene basis, no matter the source format.
In addition, The Wall Luxury features Quantum HDR technology peak brightness of 2000 nits and video rates of 120Hz, which help to produce the best image possible, even in the brightest conditions.
Samsung has also partnered with a host of industry-leading providers to ensure the audio, control and remote monitoring facets of the Wall match the image and are also of the highest quality.
As well as providing entertainment, The Wall Luxury has been created with an eye on design and lifestyle.
Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics commented, “Throughout the last twelve months, we’ve closely monitored interior design and technology trends to shape the product planning and development of The Wall Luxury.”
Thus, the 30mm deep modules can form an entirely bezel-less display or be used with a customisable decor frame. Additionally, when not being viewed as a television, Ambient Mode can turn The Wall Luxury into a digital canvas and display images of art, photographs and video art in much the same way it can on Samsung’s most recent QLED models.
Available in July, no price for the 292-inch Wall Luxury has been announced but since it is being marketed as an ‘ultra-luxury product’ it is unlikely to be targeting the average consumer and, at this stage at least, will require custom installation.
