WTF is MicroLED? Samsung's new TV tech explained

Antonio Villas-Boas  Business Insider

The Wall is a 146-inch 4K Tv that has just been revealed by Samsung at the CES in Las Vegas. We were told as the 2017 year ended, by none other than IHS Markit, that OELD TVs had shipped 133% ahead of last year's figures - not much of a leap really, from an already low figure.

With more and more content becoming available and prices coming down, there's never been a better time make the upgrade to 4K.

It's still a race to have the biggest, baddest TV at CES.

At achieving this latter PR stunt, The Wall succeeds wonderfully. Well, first and foremost, there's something called Modular microLED. They're mostly proof-of-concept TVs, and few if any retail models have left China. As the world's first consumer modular MicroLED television, "The Wall" represents another breakthrough. The company unveiled the LG Gram laptops, OLED and Super UHD LED TVs and even a Smart display powered by Google Assistant.They also announced the Smart ThinQ speaker which has Google Assistant built in. Like OLED, micro LED tech creates light and color right inside a TV's pixels themselves and thus doesn't require any sort of large, bulky LED backlight arrays.

Other key specs of "The Wall" include a full HDR support package with inclusion of full DCI-P3 wide color gamut and some essentially flawless contrast, with total black levels where needed alongside spectacularly high peak brightness as we'd mentioned above.

I couldn't tell at all that this 4K TV was made up of lots of mini ones in person, and certain scenes - like magma oozing out of rock - looked hyper-realistic. It combines the best of OLED (perfect, total black levels) with the best of LCD (stunningly high peak brightness) and joins them with incredible high dynamic range color. "We're excited about this next step along our roadmap to the future of screen technology, and the remarkable viewing experience it offers to consumers", said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.

Each year at CES, we've come to expect a new generation of TVs that are bigger, brighter, and clearer than the year before, and this year's show did not disappoint. Likewise, Samsung claims that The Wall's MicroLED tech is extremely durable, and much more power efficient.
