Samsung The Wall unveiled as the future of TV

The TV on stage boasted a diagonal of 146-inches, however due to its modular technology it is not restricted in size, resolution or form, explained the South Korean tech giant. It is a self-emitting TV with micrometer (µm) scale LEDs - which are much smaller than current LEDs, and serve as their own source of light. This year, however, Samsung has incorporated some impressive technology that allows the TV to exhibit OLED-like black levels and off-angle viewing, coupled with the punchy HDR performance best achieved by powerful LED backlights. The screen is supremed with durability, effectiveness, luminous efficiency, and low power consumption that altogether set the bar higher for future screen technology.

Still, in keeping with Samsung's theme for the evening, this is a TV technology that looks to the future, and is a sign that shrinking prices and screen sizes could make MicroLED a serious OLED competitor.

"As the world's first consumer modular MicroLED television, 'The Wall" represents another breakthrough, ' Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, said yesterday.

Samsung's wonderful solution is to combine microLEDs (or mLEDs) and modular screen units which are more than ready for 8K and allowing consumers to buy as many modular units as its wall - and credit card - can manage.

Samsung also featured the world's first QLED TV featuring 8K AI technology, which will be launched internationally, starting with Korea and the United States during the second half of 2018.

Samsung has also created what it describes as "AI Upscaling", and as with today's 4K/UHD displays which can usefully upscale "ordinary" HD to near 4K quality, Samsung will use similar technology tricks to boost 4K to 8K visibility. Samsung claims, "The Q9S incorporates AI technology to deliver clear and pristine 8K resolution for any type of content".

The lack of native 8K content is another issue to deal, and Samsung has a unique solution for that too in the form of an AI chip that the TVs come equipped with. "Or, if viewing a concert, the low-frequency sounds of the music might be highlighted to deliver a richer sound", the company said. Samsung is also keeping quiet about the technical aspects of how these multiple panels will connect, or what kind of software will support the varied resolutions and shapes offered by the modular design. What it may also mean is a more affordable way of achieving that quality. The advancements include easier sharing and connectivity, simpler controls for the television, and syncing with other devices.
