SAMSUNG, the Korean electronics manufacturer is launching a luxury version of The Wall. Ideal for even the brightest areas of residence or dare I suggest palace. The Wall Luxury is configurable and customisable to a wide variety of sizes and ratios. From a mere 73” inches in 2K definition to a 292” inch in 8K definition.
A depth of less than 30mm, a slim bezel free infinity design with customisable decor frames will apparently allow even a 292” inch TV display to ‘blend seamlessly’ into its surroundings. Though personally I do feel that it would be really hard to miss a TV that big. Coming to the market in July and speaking at the InfoComm 2019, a major exhibition in the USA in June, the Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung, Seog-gi Kim said “throughout the last 12 months we’ve closely monitored interior design and technology trends to shape the product planning and development of the Wall of Luxury.
“We set out to create a product unlike anything else, matching the lifestyle and taste of those looking for the most exclusive and premium visual experience in their homes.” The Wall of Luxury is designed to be never turned off, thanks to a 100,000 hour lifetime of its self-emitting diodes, and is expected to be a digital canvas matching the owner’s needs and moods.
When the screen is not being used to view movies or perhaps the news of the latest football or sport. the ‘Ambient Mode setting’ could display art from paintings, photographs or even video art. Of course there are smaller televisions, however I suspect there will be very few that are larger. At 22 feet will anyone have the need or the living room for larger? Samsung promise availability globally in July and news of the prices soon.
