Want a big TV? Think The Wall

The Cairns Post - - NEWS - Han­nah Busch

IMAG­INE a tele­vi­sion that lines your en­tire lounge room wall. Plus the wall next to it. Or maybe the win­dow.

Sam­sung is mak­ing that a re­al­ity with the un­veil­ing of an enor­mous 219-inch The Wall tele­vi­sion.

The jaw-drop­pingly huge dis­play comes in at more than 5.5 me­tres wide.

Sam­sung used the Con­sumer Elec­tron­ics Show last year to un­veil the first it­er­a­tion of The Wall, at 146 inches. The mod­u­lar mi­croLED tele­vi­sion is bezel free and can be cus­tomised by adding or re­mov­ing mod­ules.

Along­side the supersized Wall, the mod­ules have also got­ten a makeover this year and were the ma­jor fo­cus of Sam­sung’s First Look at CES.

The com­pany has la­belled mi­croLED as the next ma­jor leap in ‘dis­play’ tech­nol­ogy, mov­ing away from la­belling the mod­ule as a tele­vi­sion.

Sam­sung said tech­ni­cal ad­vance­ments in the mi­croLED dis­play al­lowed them to cre­ate a new 75-inch mod­ule dis­play, which is more home-friendly than the big­ger sizes an­nounced last year.

Pres­i­dent and head of visual dis­play busi­ness Jonghee Han told me­dia Sam­sung saw the tele­vi­sion as the hub of the home.

The com­pany has also hinted at an Aus­tralian re­lease.

A spokesper­son said Sam­sung Aus­tralia was cur­rently as­sess­ing when to launch this prod­uct lo­cally and de­tails on avail­abil­ity for Aussie TV fans would be re­leased at a later date.

Sam­sung also an­nounced a 98-inch 8K tele­vi­sion.
