Samsung plans to launch a consumer-friendly version of the 146-inch modular MicroLED display it unveiled at CES.

At CES 2018, Samsung unveiled a prototype of an enormous modular display (able to be configured to any size and aspect ratio) that introduced a self-emissive pixel technology the company called MicroLED.

At 146 inches, it isn’t exactly living-room-friendly - but a consumer version of the micro light-emitting diode display is apparently in the pipeline, as reported by The Korean Herald.

In a press conference last week, Han Jong-hee, president of Samsung’s visual display business, talked of a consumer version of The Wall that will be as thin as 30mm – 50mm thinner than the commercial variant. Han said it would be a “luxury” model in the premium home cinema market.

“We have completed the microLED technology and are in a stage to raise production yields,” he said. Like the commercial version, the household variant will maintain the flexible block structure that allows consumers to specifiy any size and aspect ratio.

“Consumers will be able to do anything they want with displays or screens that they feel comfortable with, just like mobile displays,” Han added.

Could this finally be a

Could this finally be a viable, even better, alternative to genuine 4K projectors and screens?  Notwithstanding the probable better image created by light photons being fired directly at the eyeballs, rather than fired across a blacked out room decorated like a velvet-lined coal mine, bounced off a sheet of cloth first and scattered all around the room before making it to the eyeballs, will it be cheaper (and easier) to install?

With the price of the bottom end Sony 4K PJ coming in at 5000 Pounds or so, plus, say, another 2000 to 3000 Pounds (can we say ripoff on here?) for a decent screen,. plus another 1000 for a decent (and very long) HDMI cable and ceiling mount, not to mention the electrician's and plasterer's time, it only needs to be less than 9000 to 10,000 to make sense.  If they can bring in 120 inch versions at around 5000 to 6000 Pounds they'll be laughing.

Oh, and I'd like a 110 to 20 inch 16:9 please.  For US$5000 plus tax.  Sony can do an 85 inch 4K TV with tuners, multiple HDMIs, speakers, etc. for that so, Samsung, that's your challenge.
