Samsung just launched a world first, a 34 foot diagonal LED HDR Cinema Screen,
Samsung is one of the industry leaders when it comes to digital displays. Now they are looking aggressively at the Cinema/Movie Theatre business with its new Cinema Screen, a LED 4096 x 2160 resolution screen that measures a massive 34 feet. That's not big for a cinema screen but this is an actual LED Screen and not a projector based reflection.
Unveiled during the Cinemacon 2017 conference earlier this week, Samsung says its screen is the world’s first High Dynamic Range LED theater display, able to show movies at a peak brightness level that’s nearly ten times greater than standard cinema projectors (146fL versus 14fL). It also comes with very high contrast and clever grayscale settings that “enable the screen to showcase both brightest colors and the deepest blacks at a nearly infinity:1 contrast ratio”.
It is, however, smaller than most current cinema screens, which usually measure up to 65 feet wide, or around 72 feet in the case of IMAX. You won't likely see anything near this size for home cinema
The massive screen is currently undergoing currently undergoing the DCI certification process, having just completed compliance testing at Tokyo’s Keio University.
VP of Samsung Electronics America, Sang Kim, says the LED screens would benefit those cinemas that rent out their auditoriums for corporate events, concerts, or even gaming competitions.
