Samsung presents 146-inch modular MicroLED TV aptly called "The Wall"

Not to be outdone by long-time display-making nemesis LG and its early CES 2018 spotlight-capturing 65-inch rollable OLED TV concept, Samsung just built a massive wall out of self-emitting MicroLED modules. The TV on stage boasted a diagonal of 146-inches, however due to its modular technology it is not restricted in size, resolution or form, explained the South Korean tech giant. There is no need for color filters or backlighting thus there is no light bleed. The result, as well as size flexibility, is "brighter white hues, darker black shades and the truest natural colours", claims Samsung. Samsung's new 8K QLED TV is set to rival LG's OLED line-up. MicroLED is generally said to offer a lower response time and longer lifespan than OLED, too.

Samsung's modular "Wall" works on the same principle as stadium scoreboards, where the pixels are made up of LEDs. Samsung describes the TV as a scalable product, which can fit nearly any size you can imagine (its technology comes from Samsung's 34-foot cinema display). Han is the President of Visual Display Business, and Das is the Senior VP of Consumer Electronics, Samsung, America. "We're excited about this next step along our roadmap to the future of screen technology, and the remarkable viewing experience it offers to consumers". Samsung's promise to upscale content requires a lot of heavy-lifting by the AI before 8K content is delivered to the viewers. The AI does detail-creation, edge-restoration and most importantly noise-reduction to deliver an ideal picture quality in 8K - the highest current standard for content.

Vikings will play Panthers-Saints victor in divisional round
New Orleans dominated Carolina in two divisional games this season, taking down the Panthers by a combined score of 65-35. Commissioner Roger Goodell says it is good for the league that eight of the 12 teams in this year's playoffs are new.

The team went 30-34 in his four seasons, making the playoffs twice and winning one game before retiring again. Gibbs returned to coaching in 2004 and his second stint in Washington wasn't almost as effective as his first.

But Samsung, as first reported by CNET, is betting on something else at CES 2018 for its new TVs: QLED displays - sort of. Employing a proprietary algorithm for resolution adjustment, it consistently improves image quality, and can "easily transform" any content from any source into 8K high-resolution! 2018 will also see the launch of Universal Guide - an advanced program guide which automatically recommends TV programs and content according to a user's preferences.
