Samsung unveils massive 219-inch 4K "The Wall" TV

Samsung unveils massive 219-inch 4K

The 219-inch display may be a pie-in-the-sky demo (for now!) but a 75-inch version - however expensive - could find its way into some homes in the relatively near future.

MicroLED is Samsung's new display technology, based on a heavily miniaturized version of RGB light-emitting diode (LED) arrays used in very large commercial displays.

Featuring leading-edge self-emissive technology and modular capabilities, Samsung's Micro LED displays deliver unparalleled picture quality, versatility and design. These MicroLEDs feature millions of inorganic red, green, and blue microscopic LED chips which are capable of producing their own light - resulting in a superior contrast ratio and near ideal color. Because each tiny LED can be turned on and off individually, the bright colors are brighter, and the deep tones are deeper since there is no need for a backlight.

Last year, Samsung unveiled a 146-inch version for the first time at the same tradeshow.

US House passes bill to end government shutdown, Trump threatens veto
That effort is created to squeeze Senate Republicans, some of whom are growing increasingly anxious about the extended shutdown. The bills, however, do not include $5.6 billion President Donald Trump has demanded to build a wall on the southern border.

"For decades, Samsung has lead the way in next-generation display innovation", said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. Millions of these tiny lights are then combined in the huge televisions to "produce brilliant 'colours on screen - delivering unmatched picture quality that surpasses any display technology now available on the market". "Samsung Micro LED has no boundaries, only endless possibilities".

Since the entire system is modular, users can customize their own display to fit the space perfectly. Moreover, no matter what size the display is in - the Micro LED technology can optimize the content, scaling itself to increase the resolution with more modules while keeping the pixel density constant. According to Samsung, this includes support for standard formats like 16:9 HD or 21:9 widescreen, and more unconventional aspect ratios like 32:9, or 1:1.

Samsung has also managed to cut down the thickness of the TV from 80mm to 30mm.
