Samsung Shows Micro LED Products At CES 2019
New designs included a new 75inch and a 219inch display
Samsung Electronics has introduced the latest innovations in modular microLED display technology during its annual CES event at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
The new microLED technology designs featured at the event included: a new 75-inch display, a 219-inch The Wall as well as other various groundbreaking sizes, shapes and configurations for a next-generation modular Micro LED display - a 2019 CES Best of Innovation Award winner.
“For decades, Samsung has led the way in next-generation display innovation,” said Jonghee Han, president of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “Our microLED technology is at the forefront of the next screen revolution with intelligent, customisable displays that excel in every performance category. Samsung microLED has no boundaries, only endless possibilities.”
Featuring self-emissive technology and modular capabilities, Samsung's microLED displays deliver high picture quality, versatility and design. These TV displays are made up of individual modules of self-emissive microLEDs, featuring millions of inorganic red, green and blue microscopic LED chips that emit their own light to produce brilliant colours on screen - delivering unmatched picture quality that surpasses any display technology currently available on the market.
At last year's CES, Samsung introduced microLED by unveiling The Wall, the critically acclaimed, award-winning 146-inch microLED display. Due to the technical advancements in the ultra-fine pitch semiconductor packaging process that narrow the gap between the microscopic LED chips, Samsung has been able to create a stunning 4K microLED display in a smaller, more home-friendly 75-inch form factor.
Thanks to the modular nature of microLED, this technology offers flexibility in screen size that allows users to customise it to fit any room or space. By adding microLED modules, users can expand their display to any size they desire. The modular functionality of microLED 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 says its Micro LED technology also optimises 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, microLED 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 microLED displays are bezel-free, there are no borders between modules - even when you add more. The result is a seamless, infinity pool effect that allows the display to elegantly blend into any living environment.
