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

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

"But it also uses micro-led technology which is brand new TV technology that they use in scoreboards". Samsung aims to bring "The Wall" to market during 2018.

LG, Panasonic, Philips and Sony are now the only manufacturers producing OLED TVs, something that Samsung hasn't got behind.

I couldn't tell at all that this 4K TV was made up of lots of mini ones in person, and certain scenes - like magma oozing out of rock - looked hyper-realistic. As the world's first consumer modular MicroLED television, "The Wall" represents another breakthrough.

"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.

All of that screen real estate would be for nought if the TV's display quality wasn't up to scratch. While LG has yet to release more details to its TV it did reveal that the key to its roll-up design is the fact that it doesn't need backlight to run. This is the heart and soul of the new Wall TV from the company and Samsung is promising that it will be part of the "screen of the future".

Instead of the more conventional LED, plasma, OLED technology, or Samsung's own QLED, the Wall is the first consumer TV to use MicroLED.

MicroLED is based on Samsung's Cinema Screen technology, designed for movie theaters.

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.

The 146-inch size might seem random, but it's actually just tall enough to be able to cover most home walls from the floor to the ceiling. Samsung says that the same old technology won't work with 8K anymore, and that's where AI comes in.

Although Amazon's Alexa was the star of the show a year ago, she has some competition in 2018 from Google Assistant, Samsung's Bixby, Apple's Siri, and more. Sony's new HT-Z9F and HT-X9000F are a pair of self-contained soundbars which have no rear or upwards-firing speakers, yet with the push of a button can create virtual Atmos. Unsurprisingly called Roku Entertainment Assistant, the system will debut on a new soundbar by TCL called the Roku Smart Soundbar.

So with all this on the horizon, should you hold back on buying a 4K TV right now? 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.
