I agree... also, imagine a manically psychedelic affair going an after a big night out.Sorry Paul, I just funnied your post not because I thought it was ridiculous, but I had this image in my mind of an entire room being a screen and you could put the ceiling on the floor and the floor on the ceiling.
Or have it moving about as if you were on a choppy sea. Or you were flying in the air.
The vomit potential is high with this one!
It could be polished enough. As with most things technological, once it can be done then refining it to top spec takes intense effort, research and experiment. And therefore, lots of hard cash.I’m struggling to see the modules coming to market as a genuine consumer product. I just don’t think it will be polished enough
Yep I think it is complete fantasy if Samsung think that they can produce consumer TV's using this process. It just won't happen because once you spot the seams then that is solely what you will be focussing on even at regular viewing distances ... that is before we even get into dead pixel territory.Sounds great on paper but modules how can you hide the joins.
Will be very expensive at first me thinks another decade before you can get excited about this technology.
Another possible issue is assembly. Most typical users, no members from this forum, have problems connecting devices. Joining panels might be a step too far for many. A friend of mine got a DVD player as a present because had none, asked me to help to get it connected. There was a Panasonic DVD recorder already that out-spec the present.I’m struggling to see the modules coming to market as a genuine consumer product. I just don’t think it will be polished enough
Out of interest, what would it cost for the best currently available, at say 87” to be installed domestically?P0.5 LED panels now available which is beginning to get interesting for home use.
You could do a 3840x2160 display at 1.92M x 1.08M which is 87" diagonal.
Spectacularly expensive though!
Or, if you went for P0.67, you could do a 4K display at 116" diagonal which is a decent size for projector replacement.
So this stuff already exists, right now. Myself or Noiseboy could install one in your home next week.
What Samsung et al are working on is turning it from an expensive and somewhat bulky commercial product that requires a certain degree of capability to install and commission, into a cost effective plug+play solution that will look sexy on your wall.
The sizes / pixel pitches they have demonstrated are not actually that ground breaking.
aha .. for that ... who is than producing the best sun glasses to watch the TV. Thanks god there would be no need of super, hyper sun protection cream or milk.
I think you missed half a dozen zeros off it there. For example this wikipedia article says it's 1,600,000,000 nits which seems like more believable value.
