Samsung's new 146-inch TV is better than a movie theater


Is this big enough yet?

Surely this was the thought going through the minds of the Samsung engineers and designers as they stood in the shadow of their massive 146-inch TV at CES 2018. This behemoth is called "The Wall" and it's your best reason yet to never go to a movie theater.

The pinnacle of high-end home entertainment for years was the projector, but that type of setup has many downsides, such as the need for almost absolute darkness to create a quality image and low contrast ratios.

Since then, we've seen TVs steadily increase in size and brightness, slowly climbing the size vs. quality mountain. But now Samsung has reached a peak with "The Wall."

This TV uses a scaled-down version of the technology behind outdoor signage called MicroLED, which can create extremely bright images even in direct sunlight.

But this isn't the first time this tech has been used in a cinematic setting.

"The Wall" is a more consumer-sized version of Samsung's first cinema LED screen, replacing the projector where you find them most often.

The 10-foot wide and nearly six-foot high screen's size has been perfectly selected to fit the average wall in your home, but there's nothing average about this TV. The MicroLED array allows for modular configuration, meaning you can easily add-on and create an even bigger screen.

No word on price yet, but Samsung promises "The Wall" will be available this year, and if you want one, they'll customize one just for you.
