We're at Samsung's first look event this basically kicks off CES in the biggest possible way and Wow Samsung is bringing it this year well I guess 219 inches wasn't big enough what you're looking at right now is kind of mind-blowing this is the 292 inch version of Samsung's the wall display and I guess you know go big or go home for CES Samsung definitely went big this thing is absolutely massive it's actually casting off quite a bit of heat which is what you would expect from an ultra bright display so why create the

Wall well we talked a little bit about this last year this is a fully modular display it's made up of individual smaller panels which can be stitched together in any way you want them to they're talking about the four free ways that you can assemble this display you don't have to worry about aspect ratio you don't have to worry about bezels you don't have to worry about how the resolution is gonna play out this is an 8k display this year up from 6k from last year and it's really incredible we're seeing some 8k footage up on this screen I stood right up next to it and

You could see every tiny little wrinkle on the elephant's trunk I mean the the realism that we're getting out of this is really something special of course there's not a whole lot of 8k content out there right now we're expecting some soon I mean the Olympics are gonna be broadcast in 8k we've also got the PlayStation 5 coming and the Microsoft Xbox series X coming promising 8k HDR gameplay in the near future this display is ready for it and that's kind of this 8k story going on right now bring the displays out so that when the content finally gets made you can watch

It on something obviously this is the biggest version that you could possibly get and we're seeing some new processing behind this not just in terms of upscaling things up to 8k but also in terms of scaling the image to work on however you want to assemble this if you're a person of means you can actually put this in your home and I take this as a big home theater display over a projector and screen any day why is that well it's all about the micro LED technology we're talking about tiny little LEDs are the individual pixels for the image

That you're seeing so you can get perfect black levels and extremely intense brightness brightness that frankly blows away ohlet's capabilities and of course there's no drawback to the technology at all it's built for HDR we finally have a que resolution coming from this no you don't necessarily need to have a wall this big in your house you could modularly assemble any kind of screen that you want it it's a lot of fun but for those of you who probably aren't going to be putting a the wall inside your home I got great news we're seeing a lot of this technology

Trickling down into some of Samsung's other displays I've got a couple of really exciting things to show you right now now here's the proof that micro LED is the truth with the wall you're talking about a modular display that you actually assemble to fit whatever size that you want but for a more realistic in-home application what you want is a prepackaged micro LED display and that's what you see behind me right now when I said earlier that this is a far better option over a projector on a screen this is what I'm talking about right here is a 110 inch version there's also a 88

Inch version that we can take a look at here and there's also a 75 inch version now these sizes can be scaled however Samsung wants them to they these are a proof-of-concept display so no you can't buy them this year but we come to CES to look at the future of technology and when we're talking about display technology I still feel that micro LED is the wave of the future the reason I'm so jazzed about micro LED technology is that it avoids all the pitfalls of other display technologies you know it's finally brought everything that I personally wanted to see into a display

No blooming no backlight management to worry about there's no burnin potential extreme brightness perfect black levels it's just it's it's the whole package now these are proof of concept display so let me show you something that you can absolutely put in your living room this year this is the samsung q 950 you also see it marketed as the q9 DTS what's really exciting about this TV is that it basically doesn't have a bezel I suppose you could try to measure it but don't bother because it's essentially not there the TV is also only about 15 millimeters deep and it's

Available with a new no gap wall mount so when you put this TV up on your wall it basically is just a free-floating picture and finally we wind up on a TV that I honestly didn't expect to be all that excited about but once I saw it in action I kind of got it so this is the Samsung Cerro this is obviously a lifestyle play by Samsung the idea here is that a lot of video is shot in the portrait mode where you are vertical like this you got your tick-tock your snapchat Instagram story is obviously a big deal all that video is shot in this format

That's fine if you want to watch it on your device as so many people do now but if you want to share it with people you can either huddle around your phone or you can put it on a big display like the Cerro and that's the idea with this TV is that you can take that video format that's vertical and put it up on a big screen in a way that you haven't been able to do before it it takes out the black bars completely eliminates those but however if you want to watch it in a more traditional 16 by 9 horizontal landscape format you can do that too so the idea here is that in order to pair

To the display you do a little tap with your phone through NFC it automatically pairs to your phone at that point it's mirroring what's on your phone on the TV so you can control what's happening on your phone and it appears on the display but it's not limited to just that it's an a proper TV so if you want to plug Roku streaming stick into it or a blu-ray player or a gaming console you can do that as well there's also quite a chunky audio system built into this as well it's a 60 watt 4.1 audio system so it's it's not ok it is a little bit gimmicky I'm gonna say that right now

But the fact of the matter is most video is trending towards most mobile video anyway is trending towards this vertical format and there's really nothing to show it on other than the phone itself so if you want that larger representation that's what this arrow is for is this gonna take off I don't know but it's really interesting to see Samsung making a play at something like this and looking more into how TVs fit into our lifestyle a lot of the same lines is there serif and their frame televisions which are meant to be art installations in the home to also

Function as televisions so there's your run down from the 292 inch version of the wall micro LED TV down to the next generation of a.k displays distilling down to something like this arrow Samsung has quite a bit of a showing here at CES 2020 we hope you enjoyed what you seen so far we've got lots more coming up at the big show this year
