Samsung Electronics has unveiled its latest attempts at modular Micro LED displays at CES this week, including a massive 75″ 4K display, a 219″ The Wall, and displays of various sizes, shapes, and configurations. The Micro LED systems were first revealed to the public yesterday as part of Samsung’s First Look CES event.
The Micro LED displays feature self-emissive technology and modular capabilities to provide “unparalleled picture quality, versatility, and design.” The TV displays are made up of individual modules of self-emissive Micro LEDs, with millions of inorganic red, gree, and blue microscopic LED chips that emit their own light to produce a massive array of colors on screen. Samsung believes the Micro LEDs will provide picture quality that surpasses existing display systems.
Samsung introduced their Micro LED systems last year at CES with The Wall, their award-winning 146″ Micro LED display. Due to technical advancements, they’ve been able to narrow the gap between the microscopic LED chips, and create a 4K Micro LED display in the more home-friendly 75″ display unveiled this year.
“For decades, Samsung has led the way in next-generation display innovation,” said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “Our Micro LED technology is at the forefront of the next screen revolution with intelligent, customizable displays that excel in every performance category. Samsung Micro LED has no boundaries, only endless possibilities.”
As for the technical specs of the Micro LED system, well, here’s the gist from Samsung themselves:
Thanks to the modular nature of Micro LED, this technology offers flexibility in screen size that allows users to customize it to fit any room or space. By adding Micro LED modules, users can expand their display to any size they desire. The modular functionality of Micro LED will allow users in the future to create the ultimate display evenat irregular 9×3, 1×7 or 5×1 screen sizesthat suits their spatial, aesthetic and functional needs.
Samsung’s Micro LED technology also optimizes the content no matter the size and shape of the screen. Even when adding more modules, Samsung Micro LED displays can scale to increase the resolution — all while keeping the pixel density constant. Additionally, Micro LED can support everything from the standard 16:9 content, to 21:9 widescreen films, to unconventional aspect ratios like 32:9, or even 1:1 – without having to make any compromises in its picture quality.
Finally, because Micro LED displays are bezel-free, there are no borders between modules – even when you add more. The result is a seamless, stunning infinity pool effect that allows the display to elegantly blend into any living environment. The possibilities for eye-catching designs are enhanced by new Ambient Mode features.
So, you might actually be able to use this one for gaming, depending on the refresh rate.
Samsung’s Micro LED and 8K QLED lines can be found at Central Hall booth #15006 at the Las Vegas Convention Center during CES this week.
