Samsung Electronics at CES 2019 introduced a new modular micro-LED display technology that includes a new 75-inch display and 219-inch The Wall. The Samsung’s micro-LED 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 true colours on the screen.
At last year’s CES, Samsung introduced micro LED by unveiling The Wall – a critically acclaimed, award-winning 146-inch Micro LED display. But, due to technical advancements in the ultra-fine pitch semiconductor packaging process that narrows 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-inch form factor.
Thanks to the modular nature of the micro-LED, it offers flexibility in screen size that allows users to customise 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 of micro LED will allow users in the future to create the ultimate display even at irregular sizes – for instance, 9×3, 1×7 or 5×1 – to suits their spatial, aesthetic and functional needs.
'Our Micro LED technology is at the forefront of the next screen revolution with intelligent, customisable displays that excel in every performance category. Samsung Micro LED has no boundaries, only endless possibilities,' said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
According to Samsung, the micro-LED also optimises the content no matter the size and shape of the screen and can scale to increase the resolution — all the while keeping the pixel density constant.
'Additionally, Micro LED can support everything from standard 16:9 contents and 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,' the company added.
