Samsung has finally revealed the 2021 version of its The Wall display and it’s ridiculously big. Samsung unveiled The Wall a few years ago, it started off as a small 100-inch display and then was improved to a meager 292-inch 8K display but now it seems that Samsung is committed to going the extra mile. The 2021 version of The Wall has been unveiled to a ridiculously big 1000 inch display, kind of like those big displays you see at the stadium.
The new display seems to be made with the goal of displaying an animated banner or showcasing content. According to Samsung’s Senior VP of Visual Display Business, Hyesung Ha “Samsung is dedicated to creating the most innovative displays for those at the forefront of video creation and brand experiences”. Samsung’s display panels are considered to be the best worldwide and the company wants to solidify this reputation with this new display.
Ha further added that “The 2021 The Wall is our most immersive and versatile display yet, giving businesses complete control to create their dream environments”. For the 2021 model, Samsung has reduced the size of each LED over previous generations enabling improved color uniformity and higher contrast. The 1000 inch display comes with an 8K (7,680 x 4,320) resolution and a never-before-seen refresh rate of 120 Hz. That would make this display the first 120 Hz 8K display,
The display also comes with a new AI Micro Processor that is able to scan and optimize each and every frame for noise removal and contrast enhancements. The processor leverages the power of 16 different neural networks to achieve enhancements. AI image enhancements have been at the forefront of the display industry these days. Although they have been criticized for not being that accurate and merely bumping colors in most scenes. It will be interesting to see how Samsung’s solution measures up.
Since The Wall is a modular display, it can be set up in various ways. It can be set up to display horizontally at 15,360 x 2,160 pixels and can be arranged in concave, convex, ceiling, hanging, inclined, and L-type configurations. The display also comes with a whopping 1600 nits of peak brightness, making it ideal for the outdoors. Let’s be honest, you aren’t fitting this thing inside your living room unless you live inside a big mansion or something.
The display also features Micro HDR and Micro Motion for life-like, smooth imagery, and can accommodate up to four different content sources for picture-by-picture simultaneous display at 4K per source. The display has also been awarded Eye Comfort Certification by TÜV Rheinland, which ensures harmful blue light is reduced.
