The show­down of the TV manu­fac­turers is going into the next round. At IFA 2013 every manu­fac­turer wan­ted to be the com­pany with the „world big­gest any­thing tv“. At CES 2014 the event will be cal­led “ The Worlds Lar­gest Cur­ved Ultra HD TV“. LG and Samsung set the bar to 105 inches and 5,120 x 2,160 pixels on a 21:9 aspect ratio!

While Samsungs Pixel Behe­moth is based on an LCD panel , the 105- inch model from LG is equip­ped with an OLED panel. Thats cle­ver, so ever­yone gets an award to him­self : „World’s lar­gest cur­ved LCD Ultra HD TV“ for Samsung and „World’s lar­gest cur­ved OLED Ultra HD TV“ for LG.  Maybe Cur­ved TVs will be the next tech­no­logy trend besi­des OLED and Ultra HD?

How should a Cur­ved Dis­play change the view­ing expe­ri­ence ? That’s a good ques­tion and Samsung has the ans­wer: The cur­ved screen in com­bi­na­tion with a new algo­rithm impro­ves the color repro­duc­tion, which is inten­ded to give the viewer an intense fee­ling of depth of field. To expe­ri­ence the depth effect even with SD and HD con­tent , Samsung has inte­gra­ted the „Quad Auto­ma­tic Pic­ture Engine“. The engine ups­ca­les low-res pic­tures to 5,120 x 2,160 pixels. The idea of a cur­ved dis­plays is not that new. Huge Cine­mas like IMAX alre­ady use cur­ved screens to give the viewer an immer­sive movie expe­ri­ence.

Of course, cor­po­ra­ti­ons have to prove over the com­pe­ti­tion . But many cust­o­m­ers would rather want a well craf­ted final pro­duct than to get slap­ped in the face again and again with big a** TVs and dis­plays. Most of these don’t find their way into the stores and if they do they cost as much as a Mons­ter Truck.

More Details on the new cur­ved Ultra HD TVs will be revea­led on CES 2014 in Las Vegas.
