CES 2019: Samsung Unveils Modular Micro LED Technology
Samsung introduced its latest innovations in modular Micro LED display technology during its annual First Look CES event. The new technology designs featured at the event included: a new 75” display, a 219” The Wall as well as other various sizes, shapes and configurations.
Micro LED displays deliver very high picture quality, versatility and design. These TV displays are made up of individual modules of self-emissive Micro LEDs, featuring millions of inorganic red, green and blue microscopic LED chips that emit their own light to produce brilliant colors on screen.
At last year’s CES, Samsung introduced Micro LED by unveiling The Wall, a 146” Micro LED 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 4K Micro LED display in a smaller, more home-friendly 75” form factor.
Thanks to the modular nature of Micro LED, this technology offers flexibility in screen size that allows users to customize it to fit any room or space. By adding Micro LED modules, users can expand their display to any size they desire. The modular functionality will allow users in the future to create the ultimate display even at irregular screen sizes that suits their spatial, aesthetic and functional needs.
Micro LED also optimizes the content no matter the size and shape of the screen. Even when adding more modules, those displays can scale to increase the resolution all while keeping the pixel density constant. Additionally, Micro LED 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.
Displays are bezel-free so 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. The possibilities for designs are enhanced by new Ambient Mode features.
