Since some time LED Walls are out but found so far not the way to the Cinemas or Homecinemas.
Leyard had since some years good LED Walls and the first real good one the Germany Lang AG show at ISE 2016 a good year ago.
A about 10 meter wide true 8K LED Wall with 7680x4320 resolution.
Sony jump into it with their CLEDS 8x2K Wall they show at CES 2017 and CinemaCon 2017.
People that saw it like it a lot as compare to other the Sony can do much more cr. and much better and wider colors.
The biggest news over all for me from CinemaCon 2017 was that Samsung plan to enter the Cinema Market with their new cinema screen Technology.https://news.samsung.com/global/samsung-electronics-premieres-the-theater-of-the-future-with-new-cinema-screen-technology
This company is a huge Company and a huge competitor in the Cinema Market and if they enter this marked it say a lot.
But even if it is some years away to adopt for Home Cinema use I strongly believe that it will come to the home cinema sooner or later.
One big problem is the price.
At the moment it is very expensive and likely too much for Cinemas and also Home Cinemas.
But this can change.
I hear that the Samsung Cinema Screen is may in a price range that some Cinemas will go with it in 2018 when Samsung will have this product at the market.
As in the Cinemas bigger pixel pitch are possible compare to home cinema this new Technology will likely comes first in public Cinemas and later in Home Cinemas
as the smaller the pixel pitch are the more expensive it will be.
General this is an option for me when:
-I can afford it
-it can show good 3D (don´t know if they can do polarizer or shutter or only 2D!)
-it will give me a big Advantage in picture performance to my Barco Thor Laser Projector that perform very well
This Technology have the potential to replace conventional Projectors faster that some people think at this time.
And it will be exciting to see when and how this Technology will be hit with final buyable Products.
The Cinemas need something special in Picture Quality and this may is a new option as it will be
almost impossible to do HDR at high lumen with a Projector.
But let’s see also Projectors will get some improvement’s in the next years.
It will be an exciting time the next few years!Linkback: http://dci-forum.com/d-cinema-home/11/future-cinema-home-cinema/1901/
