Samsung's New The Wall Display: Is 583 Inches Large Enough?by Anton Shilov on February 11, 2020 8:00 AM EST
Samsung has expanded its The Wall lineup of Micro LED-based displays with two models featuring 437 and 583-inch diagonals. The monitors are intended for commercial use, though nothing can stop someone with deep pockets from buying such a 'television' for home use.
The new 437 and 583-inch Wall displays from Samsung feature an 8K resolution and are based on new Micro LED modules. Previously, Samsung’s The Wall lineup included 75-inch, 146-inch, 219-inch, and 292-inch models.
Here's the previous generation 146-inch model
Samsung does not disclose exact specifications of its new Wall displays as well as Micro LED-based modules (called cabinets) uses to build them. Previously, Samsung’s Micro LED cabinets featured 250 - 2000 nits brightness (regular/peak), around 10,000:1 contrast ratio, a 16-bit color depth, up to a 100/120 Hz refresh rate, as well as 155°/135° horizontal/vertical viewing angles. Given the overall size of the latest displays, the newest modules probably have a lower pixel density, but for commercial applications like digital signage this may not matter a lot.
The largest versions of Samsung’s Wall displays will be available for pre-order starting this week. Prices are not disclosed, but if you have to ask, you probably can't afford it.

a5cent - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkThree micro LED per pixel, one per color.
ksec - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkIn case it wasn't clear, nether the 7x or 14x inch MicroLED are 8K,
PeachNCream - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkIt isn't curved and I bet they charge like $1200 extra for the stupid stand.
Holliday75 - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkThing needs a fork lift. Try $40,000
PeachNCream - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkWell then Samsung needs to include the necessary silverware. Maybe they could throw in a complete set including spoons, knives, and BOTH sorts of forks.
LedHed - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkI have always hated the line "If you have to ask, you can't afford it!" To me that just says, "We added such a mark-up, that anyone who understands HW costs, will become enraged at the number."
I don't care how rich I become, I'm always going to want to know what it cost! Just because you have money doesn't mean you can't be semi-frugal.
fred666 - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkrelax, it was just a joke. It means the price isn't announced yet but we expect it to be VERY expensive
PeachNCream - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkI think the target market for these will not likely be people buying for persoanl use. The 583 inch model is over 48.5 feet of diagonal. The smallest option is still 75 inches which is over 6 feet. Buyers will probably be few in number. In B2B sales, quotes after an inquiry are the way of things so sometimes prices are not even published to the public at large.
Makaveli - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkAs many rich people have told me "being Semi-frugal" is what keeps you rich.
Instead of lotto winners who go broke in 5 years because they are buying everybody and their mum's cars and house and not actually investing to generate money.
