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.

Kjella - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkA lot of "old money" actually spend very little of it ever because it's not in their nature. But then they have kids that get spoiled and pampered with lavish luxury who end up not having any clue how much money they're throwing around. Old man dies, it all turns into a shit show.
Peskarik - Wednesday, February 12, 2020 - linkExcuse me?! Show me the "old" money Vanderbildts, Kluges, Hartfords, Rockefellers. They had billions then and squandered them all. As the saying goes, the first generation makes it, the second generation spends it, and the third generation blows it.
phoenix_rizzen - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkHow long before movie theatres start replacing screens+projector with these kinds of things?
Would it be more power efficient than a laser projector? Should have better brightness/contrast controls compared to a projector, no?
lormor - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkSamsung already does this. They market it as the "Onyx" screen https://displaysolutions.samsung.com/led-signage/o...
Star Cinema in Houston, TX has one.
phoenix_rizzen - Wednesday, February 12, 2020 - linkHuh, neat. Thanks for the link. :)
Kjella - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkWell it's tiles so they can put together as many as they want, each tile is 31.75 x 17.86 inches. So 4x4 for 146", 16x16 for 292", 64*64 for 583", just add a bigger signal splitter. Oh and unless they prices have changed recently it's about $16k/tile meaning the 583 inch bad boy can be yours for like $65 million give or take. It makes even the most expensive OLED seem cheap...

Thud2 - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkMe as a multi-millionaire. "OK, years left till I'm 80? Divided by twelve. Ah, my monthly budget.
euler007 - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkNot sure about that last line. Even if I was worth 50M$ and had a 1M$ budget for a new TV I'd ask for the price. How do you write the check or do the bank transfer?
dgingeri - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - linkLooks like the front screen on the Enterprise-D bridge.
