Samsung on Monday announced a new model of The Wall, the company’s modular MicroLED display line. Samsung calls it “2021 The Wall” and it measures over 1000-inches. Aside from the massive form factor, The Wall’s 2021 model has several notable upgrades over previous models, including higher refresh rates, improved color accuracy and contrast, easier installation and more.
To start, “2021 The Wall” offers (via The Verge) a 1000-inch MicroLED panel with an 8K resolution, a 120Hz screen refresh rate and 1600 nits of top brightness. The screen can also be configured horizontally with dual resolution (16K). Samsung says that each LED is now up to 40% smaller, which increases the uniformity and contrast of the colors. Meanwhile, Ultra Chroma technology produces narrower wavelengths “Make RGB colors twice as clean and accurate as conventional LEDs.”
There is also a new Micro AI processor on board, which claims to upscale image quality up to 8K in real time by analyzing and optimizing each video frame using up to 16 neural network models.
Samsung says that the 2021 model comes with new wireless docking connections and a frameless design, which results in easier installation. The screen can be configured in various positions, including concave, convex, ceiling, hanging, sloping and L-type.
The screen also has Micro HDR and Micro Motion features that provide consistent image quality and a consistent viewing experience in various commercial environments. Furthermore, four images for image screens allow companies to display four different video feeds simultaneously with up to 4K resolution.
2021 The Wall is very clearly aimed at companies and marketing matters and is not intended for households. For households, Samsung already offers 110-inch MicroLED TV, which was launched in December last year. Samsung later added two MicroLED TVs to the range of 76- and 99-inch models.
The new 2021 model of The Wall is available in selected markets from today, but there is no word on the price.
