They feature LG's Picture-by-Picture technology, which can divide the long, rectangular signage into four seamless screens for landscape or portrait installations. Companies like LG and Samsung were some of the biggest players in the event but Amazon, Asus, Acer and many other brands including those that make popular PC peripherals also made their presence felt in the event. It also showcases some of the latest and most advanced TV display technology Samsung has ever presented to the wider world. The best part is that such customisability is claimed to have zero impact on the performance and image quality of the display. But because it is modular, it is much easier to ship and install in a home compared to most of the other very large displays. Samsung aims to bring "The Wall" to market during 2018.

The technology underlying The Wall is quite interesting. Furthermore, just as is the case with OLED, the pixels (any one of several million of them inside a micro LED 4K TV bar) can turn off or on completely on an individual basis for ideal scene dimming and bright highlights.

As its name suggests, MicroLED uses a number of microscopic LEDs, which are broken down into red, blue and green sub pixels (most commercial OLEDs just use white light), to form each individual pixel element of a picture. It doesn't require color filters or backlighting. Plus, unlike OLED, MicroLED promises zero burn-in issues. The third-generation model was unveiled at CES, along with an insane 146-inch TV that Samsung calls 'The Wall'. Samsung didn't say how all the pieces come together, but the set looked pretty seamless in person.

"Just like 4K in the past, 8K television are the technology of the future". LG is also upping the game with an 8K TV that automatically upgrades content to a higher resolution than the current 4K standard. The AI engine leverages a multitude of image samples within its database and applies machine learning to create additional detail, reduce noise, and intelligently restore edges to fill up its QLED 8K panel.

Korean, Japanese and Chinese TV makers usually use CES as a launch pad for the coming year and 2018 seems to be no different.
