"At Samsung, we are dedicated to providing consumers with a wide range of cutting-edge screen experiences", said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.

Unlike traditional LED-based LCD TVs, which use a liquid crystal layer and an LED backlight, MicroLED uses an array of millions of individual, tiny LEDs to create the image.

Welcoming visitors to LG's sprawling CES booth adjacent to the main entrance of the Las Vegas Convention Center, the LG OLED Canyon features 90 concave and 156 convex Open Frame 4K UHD screens.

This MicroLED technology is said to be a better alternative to OLED because it offers both deep blacks and bright highlights. For starters, the underlying display technology is a vastly different from what you'd get at Best Buy. The Wall also doesn't have any bezels and all the panels fit together seamlessly.

In addition to the customizable Open Frame LG OLED displays demonstrated at CES, the 2018 family of LG OLED commercial displays includes jaw-dropping Wallpaper and Wallpaper-In-Glass models and innovative video wall units, as well as Dual-View Flat and Curved Tiling models. What's more, an early report by CNET states that the seams between modules isn't visible, unlike other modular large form factor displays. In other words, aside from its ridiculous size, The Wall is as close to the ideal new TV as we've seen so far from any brand.

The proprietary LG OLED technology is designed to deliver perfect blacks thanks to its ability to turn each pixel on or completely off

LG OLED technology uses self-lighting pixels for exact control of image brightness and quality, and with no separate light source the displays are extremely lightweight, thin and flexible. Other vendors touting 4K projectors included Sony, LG, and Chinese vendor Changhong.

Almost all of the big vendors have moved away from 3D TVs, as the technology just didn't gain market acceptance. It's probably still a niche technology, but it is interesting. In short, a much more vividly visceral TV experience.

What's important, then, is the upscaling technology, which can take content of any resolution and upscale it to an 8K resolution.
