Samsung Unveils World's First Cinema LED Display

The majority of cinemas show movies by using high-end projectors, but it was only a matter of time before that changes. Although such projectors have great image, Samsung and Harman wants to replace them with new LED screens that will further improve the image.

The new LCD measures 34 feet and offers 4K resolution in a HDR LED display that has been designed specifically for movie theaters. The company wants to replace 10% of all movie theaters in the world with LED screens by 2020.

The display brings the visual power of HDR picture quality to the big screen, and enlivens content with both ultra-sharp 4K resolution (4,096 x 2,160) and peak brightness levels (146fL) nearly 10 times greater than that offered by standard projector technologies. Additionally, the Cinema LED Screen's futuristic, distortion-free presentation leverages ultra-contrast and low-tone grayscale settings to showcase the brightest colors, deepest blacks and most pristine whites at a nearly infinite contrast ratio."
