According to Samsung, microLED televisions are the future, and to prove this, the company is showcasing an incredible live concept at CES this year. MicroLED panels are designed to be modular in that two MicroLED panels can theoretically be connected to create a television of any size, and Samsung’s demonstration of the possibilities is a joy to observe.
The absence of a border or bezel around these panels is the primary reason why the scalability is not merely a gimmick. Samsung claims that with MicroLED technology, these televisions could resolve 10K, as the resolution scales proportionally with the screen size. Samsung displayed a 219-inch MicroLED display at this year’s CES, which is larger than the 146-inch display it displayed last year.
The general public won’t be able to purchase MicroLED televisions that large until at least 2020 when Samsung plans to release even the 75-inch model. It will also be expensive for the foreseeable future, but in terms of innovation, it is easy to see why the company is placing such a large wager on MicroLED technology.
Check out the concept for a scalable MicroLED display in the video above and tell us what you think.
