Samsung is expanding its range of micro-LED solution “The Wall” with a new generation of modules for corporate customers that have a reduced installation depth, use smaller micro-LEDs and up to 120 Hz support. The modules are designed for digital signage and enable areas of over 1,000 inches with 16K.
Micro LEDs are tiny, self-illuminating RGB LEDs that are positioned next to each other and are responsible for displaying the image. With traditional screens apart from OLED, LEDs are only used for background lighting, where in the current mini-LED generation they are built in particularly large numbers for a finer resolution within the zones of full array local dimming. With the even smaller micro-LEDs with RGB subpixels, these units reproduce the image themselves.
The Wall is also available as a television
At Samsung, the technology is sold under the brand name “The Wall” and is aimed primarily at corporate customers for digital signage as well as professional interior decorators in the luxury segment who use it to create digital screens in luxury residences or on yachts. For the well-heeled end customer, the TV series simply called “Micro LED” also offers ready-made solutions in 99 and 110 inches with 4K, whereby the larger model costs around 130,000 euros in South Korea.
New” The Wall “for corporate customers
For corporate customers, Samsung has now presented the 2021 generation of “The Wall”, which is being sold under the model name “IWA”. This means that support for AI-supported image processing with upscaling up to 8K and refresh rates of 120 instead of 60 Hz is also available for corporate customers who hang up these screens in the entrance halls of large office buildings, exhibition grounds or airports.
