Samsung goes big with 147-inch TV, AI-powered 8K upscaling

Samsung Uses AI To Transform Any Video Content Into 8K

All of this news comes as a part of Samsung's broader set of announcements at CES, where the company also announced a new smart refrigerator, and a workplace collaboration display.

Samsung has come to CES 2018 with an enormous TV it's calling The Wall - and it's also claiming The Wall to be "the world's first modular TV". "The modular, self-emitting MicroLED 146" TV display was featured alongside Samsung's latest innovations in display technology, demonstrating how television is evolving to offer consumers an outstanding viewing experience, while acting as a centralized connected smart hub to enhance everyday life. At the event, Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, said, "As the world's first consumer modular MicroLED television, "The Wall" represents another breakthrough". But here the individual LEDs are far smaller than usual - down to the micrometer scale - and give The Wall a clearer picture in terms of brightness, color gamut, color volume and contrast. This feature uses a proprietary machine learning algorithm to intelligently upscale the resolution of the content being displayed, allowing the TV to produce advanced upscaled 8K images from any source. No pricing, or resolution, has been announced, but Samsung says its MicroLED TV will ship sometime this year.

The incredibly tiny MicroLEDs emit their own light similar to OLED and do not require a backlight. Right now, there's still a paucity of 4K video, let alone even higher resolution content. The 8K solution upgrades feature like detail enhancement, noise reduction, edge restoration, and automatic sound adjustment for different content. At CES 2018, the consumer electronics giant revealed two rather big advancements in its TV line up.

Samsung TV's with Bixby which is an intelligent assistant platform enables easier interaction between the TV and its users, due to its intuitive UX, and comprehensive voice analysis capabilities. The company will offer only one SmartThings app now with which to control compatible smart home devices.
