Samsung’s been working for years on product designs to keep you consuming entertainment from the comfort of your own home, now they are moving to work with movie theaters.
Samsung wants to kill the movie theater projector with this giant 33-foot 4K screen
The hardware giant today unveiled its first-ever Cinema LED Screen. The giant display measures in at a whopping 33.8 feet, and provides the 4K resolution as well as “peak brightness levels nearly 10 times greater than that offered by standard projector technologies,” according to a Samsung press release.
Samsung has unveiled the Cinema LED Screen that’s an epic 10.3 meters (33.8 feet, or 406 inches). It runs at full 4K (4,096 x 2,160) resolution, features HDR and peaks out at 146 fL of brightness, “ten times greater than that offered by standard projector technologies,” Samsung said in a news release.
This display doesn’t use a projector, this display is surely pleasing filmmakers and studios: It is distortion-free and offers nearly infinite contrast ratio which will allow users to deep black and extremely bright colors.
Samsung Electronics unveiled the model at the Lotte Cinema in Korea, saying it’s the “first ever commercial Cinema LED Screen” it has installed. The average movie theater screen is around 50 feet, but the 33.8-foot Cinema Screen would be a good fit in smallish multiplex rooms.
Samsung is obviously one of the few companies out there, perhaps along with LG, that could even create such a giant LED screen.
