Samsung Unveils The Wall

Antonio Villas-Boas  Business Insider

Designed around Samsung's Cinema Screen technology, which specialises in engineering large form factor TVs.

While the roll-up screen drew plenty of attention at CES yesterday, Sony and Hisense also showed off a new take on televisions, debuting short-throw 4K projectors that could create displays of more than 100 inches in size.

That means the size of the TV can actually change to fit your room better by removing or adding pieces. This comes in handy for consumer applications because each household has varying restrictions on the viewable area on their walls.

The unique display can be rolled up when not in use.

Meanwhile Korean compatriot Samsung's 2018 QLED televisions will come with the Bixby Assistant built in, and access to Samsung's SmartThings platform. It's probably still a niche technology, but it is interesting. Rather than liquid crystal or light-emitting diode panels, which become increasingly hard and expensive to manufacture as they get larger, the Wall by Samsung uses an array of multicolored non-organic light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, to form its picture. It doesn't require color filters or backlighting. What's more, unlike OLEDs, MicroLEDs can potentially go brighter and exhibit immunity to ageing and burn in issues.

Almost all of the big vendors have moved away from 3D TVs, as the technology just didn't gain market acceptance. The new TVs will also benefit through having a new software and image processing system that will display colors more accurately and also provide "enhanced image rendering".

LG at CES 2018 affirmed that its next OLED TVs are even smarter and better-looking than before. I n-Byung Kang, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at LG Display stated that the successful development of this screen is critical in the 8K scenery. Brand new designs from Samsung included an 85-inch 8K model, the Q9S Series.

"Just like 4K in the past, 8K television are the technology of the future". What's more, the AI component promises to improve the accuracy of upscaling by focusing and identifying individual areas of the content for optimal image processing. In contrast, QLED TVs lacked impressive advancements compared to their AMOLED counterparts, leading to lower-than-expected sales.
