Samsung unveils modular micro-LED display technology at CES

During its annual First Look CES (Consumer Electronics Show) event at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, South Korea’s Samsung Electronics Co Ltd has introduced its latest innovations in modular micro-LED display technology. The new designs include a 75” display, a 219” version of The Wall as well as various other sizes, shapes and configurations for a next-generation modular micro-LED display.

“Our micro-LED technology is at the forefront of the next screen revolution with intelligent, customizable displays,” says Jonghee Han, president of Visual Display Business at Samsung.

Featuring self-emissive technology and modular capabilities, Samsung’s micro-LED displays deliver what is claimed to be unparalleled picture quality, versatility and design. The TV displays consist of individual modules of self-emissive micro-LEDs, featuring millions of inorganic red, green and blue micro-LED chips that emit their own light.

At last year’s CES, Samsung introduced micro-LEDs by unveiling the 146” display The Wall. Following further technical advances in the ultra-fine-pitch semiconductor packaging process that narrow the gap between the micro-LED chips, Samsung has created a 4K micro-LED display in a smaller, more home-friendly 75” form factor.

Due to its modular nature, micro-LED technology offers flexibility in screen size that allows users to customize it to fit any room or space. By adding micro-LED modules, users can expand their display to any size they desire. The modular functionality can allow users in the future to create displays even at irregular 9x3, 1x7 or 5x1 screen sizes that suit their spatial, aesthetic and functional needs.

Samsung says that its micro-LED technology also optimizes the content regardless of the size and shape of the screen. Even when adding more modules, the micro-LED displays can scale to increase the resolution — all while keeping the pixel density constant. Additionally, micro-LEDs can support everything from the standard 16:9 content, to 21:9 widescreen films, to unconventional aspect ratios like 32:9 or even 1:1 – without any compromise to picture quality.

Finally, because micro-LED displays are bezel-free, there are no borders between modules – even when you add more. The result is a seamless infinity-pool effect that allows the display to blend into a living environment, says Samsung.
