CES 2018 Highlights: Amazon, LG, Asus and Many More Announcements

The Wall

Samsung also worked with McAfee to develop a new security application which is tailored for TV called McAfee Security for TV.

But at CES 2018, the annual tech show happening this week in Las Vegas, manufacturers are still trying to generate buzz for their lineup of TVs coming later this year. While we were shown "The Wall", a 146-inch MicroLED prototype TV, regular LCD, or more specifically, QLED TVs were missing, instead waiting until March to see the light of day. By pressing a button, you can lower the screen into a box, where it wraps around a metal cylinder, kind of like a window blind. For the uninitiated, the pixels on a MicroLED module are significantly smaller than a conventional LED display.

The TV is "a milestone for the 8K era and underscores the exciting potential of OLED", In-Byung Kang, the LG Display chief technical officer said in a recital.

The enormous displays from LG and Samsung seem like aspirational headline grabbers more than actual shipping products, but both were incredible to see in person. The Wall is possibly the first large television from this or any brand to, supposedly, come equipped with a technology called modular Micro LED, in which LEDs on the display can be lit up individually with colors appearing more vibrant than ever before and with flawless infinite contrast due to a complete lack of backlight technology.

Steelers set for "déjà vu" playoff performance against Jacksonville
Bell finished the 2017 season third in rushing yards with 1,291 while scoring nine touchdowns on the ground. Blake Bortles did not have a real strong game in the win over the Chiefs with his passing game.

Demonstrated at CES, the "Wall" as the company calls it is made up of tiles of microLEDs seamlessly jointed together and is described as a modular product. A big draw is that it's modular, which means users can customize the size and shape of the screen by adding or removing sections of it. "But the rest of the wall can continue to display other things: family memories, simulated decor, or the avatars of family members watching remotely". And while LG mentioned support for Alexa just once throughout the presentation, all its examples came from Google's Assistant.

Samsung has not yet revealed details on pricing itself. The diagonal size of this behemoth of a TV is 146 inches.

Other TVs also have voice control features.

LG's new line of 4k OLED TVs range in size from 55 to 77 inches.
