Bigger screens, boosted performance: standout TVs from CES 2018

LG OLED Canyon Impresses CES Crowds

Samsung has several major events coming up this year with a number of new devices expected to be launched.

But with LCD, OLED and Samsung's own QLED TVs already on the market, what new features does MicroLED bring and should the competition be anxious?

However, LG Display has developed 8K AMOLED TV panels to prepare for further development of high-end TV market. Plus, unlike OLED, MicroLED promises zero burn-in issues.

A remote enables you to unfurl the display a bit, to show basic information such as today's weather or family pictures. It happens because many movies aren't filmed in the typical 16:9 TV aspect ratio.

That means the size of the TV can actually change to fit your room better by removing or adding pieces.

LG OLED
The proprietary LG OLED technology is designed to deliver perfect blacks thanks to its ability to turn each pixel on or completely off

MicroLED is a self-emitting technology. They feature LG's Picture-by-Picture technology, which can divide the long, rectangular signage into four seamless screens for landscape or portrait installations. The Wall claims to produce 2,000 nits of brightness and this technology, even though it is still emerging is more longlasting than its closest competitor, the OLED.

Demonstrated at CES, the "Wall" as the company calls it is made up of tiles of microLEDs seamlessly jointed together and is described as a modular product. But now its latest - and much larger - display can roll up, too. Sony has not yet said when this kind of model could be available to buy. Hisense was really pushing these, and especially its Laser TV line that uses laser lights and TI's DLP technology.

It was particularly focused in the presentation by Dinesh Paliwal, president and CEO of Harman, a company once in the business of audio for the home and the auto, but acquired in November 2016 by Samsung and refocused on the many challenges of self-driving vehicles. Other vendors touting 4K projectors included Sony, LG, and Chinese vendor Changhong. Massive screens with millions of blinking pixels, towering over visitors and often combined with a dozen others to form entire walls of digital images. But I was interested to see a couple of vendors, such as Stream TV and Changhong (working with technology from MirraViz), pushing glasses-free 3DTVs.

Samsung's new security solution for its TVs has already earned the approval of the industry.

The technology underlying The Wall is quite interesting. Most recently, at IFA 2017, Samsung unveiled The Frame which lets an aesthetically conscious TV owner hide their TV in plain sight, disguising it as a painting or a piece of art.
