Seeing Samsung's 'The Wall' MicroLED TV Made Me a Believer

The Wall: Samsung unveils stunning 146 inch TV A 146-inch television will soon be available for purchase
Frank Williams | 12 January, 2018, 20:31

As we mentioned previously, the Wall by Samsung measures 146-inches and comes with a self-emitting panel which uses MicroLED technology to produce pictures.

At achieving this latter PR stunt, The Wall succeeds wonderfully. Well, first and foremost, there's something called Modular microLED. This TV's screen's resolution is a huge size of 7680 x 4320, which means there are 33 million pixels in it- four times that of Ultra HD (4K), which is itself four times the resolution of regular old HD.

The TV features a micro-LED display, which is pitched as a superior alternative to OLED because it offers both deep blacks and bright highlights.

This is because the display is actually composed of many smaller modules that can be arranged to form unusual dimensions - one example that was squat and super-wide was briefly shown at the presentation.

We were a underwhelmed by Samsung's press conference at this year's CES.

Jedi Mind Trick? Nissan Develops Brain-to-Vehicle Control
This concept appears to be a type of co-driving system, where neither the driver nor the vehicle completely dominates operations. Nissan will use a driving simulator to display some aspects of the technology at CES .

Because each LED can turn on or off individually, MicroLED has the potential for infinite contrast, just like OLED TVs. Thus, this beast of a television can also get incredibly bright, much more so than OLED, managing up to over 2000 nits according to its makers.

Other key specs of "The Wall" include a full HDR support package with inclusion of full DCI-P3 wide color gamut and some essentially flawless contrast, with total black levels where needed alongside spectacularly high peak brightness as we'd mentioned above.

If you have bought yourself a brand new 4K TV you might regret that by now and we will highly recommend you to stop reading this article forthwith. Samsung says the 146-inch size was chosen to comply with the standard ceiling height.

As expected, many of these are TVs, as CES is the TV trade show.
