Giant striking TV screens fill the halls of CES 2020

From ‘The Wave’ to ‘The Wall’, this year’s gigantic dazzling TV screens decked out the halls during the Consumer Electronics Show – with stunning new features.

Among the new aspects shown during the Las Vegas event are flexible screens, flat wall fittings, borderless designs and no less than 8K resolutions.

Although some of the offers are hardly practical – essentially art installations – many of the others are likely to become coveted home accessories soon.

WHAT IS OLED?

OLEDs (organic light emitting diodes) pass electricity through materials that glow red, green and blue.

It is the only TV technology that creates color in this way. For example, LCDs use color filters and liquid crystals that block light to create an image.

In the meantime, plasmas use UV light by activating gas bags that create red, green and blue phosphors.

This means that OLEDs can be thinner and more flexible than any other television currently on the market.

LG’s ‘The Wave’

LG Corporation in South Korea has a history of making an impression with its displays at the Consumer Electronics Show.

In their 2020 offer, ‘The Wave’, they seem to have surpassed themselves.

‘The Wave’ is a top of 200 softly 55 inch OLED screens that display a coordinated image on top of the gently sloping waterfall of screens from last year.

The installation – which greets visitors to the LG stand during the electronics show – is approximately 20 feet (6 meters) high and 82 feet (25 meters) long.

Samsung’s ‘The Wall’

Although the curved screens of the Wave can make the evening news somewhat challenging to watch, Samsung’s “The Wall” is ideal for someone looking for a truly cinematic television experience – if they have the space and finances to support it .

In addition to the previously available size options of 75, 146, 219 and 292-inch, the electronics company now offers The Wall in 88, 93, 110 and 150-inch variants.

“New developments for 2020 have made the production of fixed screen sizes possible on a larger scale,” Samsung said in a statement.

The Wall uses MicroLED technology, with millions of light sources enabling image quality that can stand next to OLEDs without the risk of screen burn-in.

‘Sero’ from Samsung

Although not as colossal as ‘The Wall’, the new Sero TV from Samsung needs slightly more space than the narrow initial footprint would suggest.

The 43-inch screen of the new Sero is designed to be synchronized with a user’s mobile phone and can rotate – allowing it to rotate between landscape and portrait orientation to best accommodate content from apps such as Instagram and TikTok .

The Sero is compatible with Samsung phones, as well as Apple’s iPhone AirPlay 2.

“If we use our phones today, we almost always use them vertically,” said Grace Dolan of Samsung.

“The Sero, which means vertical in Korean, is made to meet this need.”

The Sero is already for sale in Korea – where it won 1.9 million in retail sales (around £ 1,220 / $ 1,600) – and is expected to be offered for sale in the US in the second half of 2020.

LG’s OLED R

The Sero is not the only television shown with a built-in motor during the show – although, instead of turning in the vertical direction and taking up more space, the OLED R rolls into itself and folds into a box like a folding box projection screen disappears.

The 4K resolution, 65-inch screen, however, has a price tag of $ 60,000 (around £ 46,000).

The rolling display is also available in a ceiling version that rolls down instead of upwards.

LG’s GX series

A more affordable option for a large-scale television with relatively discrete space requirements may come in the form of LG’s GX series displays.

Among the thinnest OLEDs the company makes, the television is only 20 millimeters thick.

Thanks to an integrated, tight-fitting mounting system, it rests tightly against any wall.
