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

LG OLED Canyon Impresses CES Crowds Seeing Samsung's 'The Wall' MicroLED TV Made Me a Believer

Both LG and market leader Samsung have debuted 8K TVs and, although there's hardly any content to watch on them outside of Japan, Samsung has a solution to the content gap. Dubbed as "The Wall", the huge screen is comprised ironically of a rather massive array of MicroLEDs. At 146 inches of diagonal screen size, The Wall is nearly as big as most average walls, with its dimensions measuring in at 10 feet wide and 6 feet tall.

It was particularly focused in the presentation by Dinesh Paliwal, president and CEO of Harman, a company once in the business of audio for the home and the auto, but acquired in November 2016 by Samsung and refocused on the many challenges of self-driving vehicles. Major TV brands now focus on video processing chips in addition to constant improvements of HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging technology, says WitsView, a division of TrendForce.

Among Samsung's various CES announcements were some innovative new TVs. What's more, an early report by CNET states that the seams between modules isn't visible, unlike other modular large form factor displays.

Reading between the lines, however, we would expect the tech to trickle into the market at more home-friendly sizes come 2019.

The technology underlying The Wall is quite interesting.

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

Because each LED can turn on or off individually, MicroLED has the potential for infinite contrast, just like OLED TVs. It doesn't require color filters or backlighting. 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. 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 flawless scene dimming and bright highlights.

The second exceptional TV on the South Korean manufacturer's stand is the world's first 88-inch 8K OLED TV, pushing back the limits even further with more than 33 million pixels (7680x4320) - 16 times more than regular Full HD (1920x1080).

Samsung Knox for TV works in a similar fashion as the mobile version that comes pre-installed in most of the tech giant's smartphones, tablets and wearables. Samsung also announced its new Q9S 85-inch 8K QLED TV that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to convert low resolution content to 8K.

"Just like 4K in the past, 8K television are the technology of the future". 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.
