Samsung’s The Wall – the world’s first consumer modular MicroLED TV – has made its debut at this year’s CES show in Las Vegas.
Samsung describes the self-emitting MicroLED 146” TV display “the screen of the future”. The product demonstrates how television is evolving to offer consumers an outstanding viewing experience while at the same time acting as a centralised ‘smart hub’ to enhance everyday life.
“At Samsung, we are dedicated to providing consumers with a wide range of cutting-edge viewing experiences,” said Jonghee Han, president of visual display business at Samsung Electronics. “As the world’s first consumer modular MicroLED television, ‘The Wall’ represents another breakthrough. It can be customised to any size and delivers incredible brightness, color gamut, colour volume and black levels.”
Samsung’s The Wall delivers incredible definition without restrictions of size, resolution or form. It replaces colour filters with micrometer scale LEDs, which are much smaller than current LEDs, and serve as their own source of light.
Thanks to its module-based, bezel-less design, The Wall allows consumers to customise their television to the size and shape of their choice. The modular screen can be used to create a wall-sized display, or be scaled up or down to suit a different room.
Samsung also showcased its 2018 enhanced Smart TV platform at CES, including Bixby, SmartThings and Universal Guide. Bixby, an intelligent assistant platform developed by Samsung, enables easier interaction between the TV and consumers thanks to its intuitive UX and comprehensive voice analysis capabilities.
Samsung Electronics says SmartThings integration into 2018 Samsung Smart TVs will also offer easier sharing, connectivity, and an overall simplified way to control the television and sync with other devices. This year will also see the launch of Universal Guide, an advanced program guide that allows users to search for specific content across all apps and programs and automatically recommends TV content according to a user’s preferences.
