      The biggest TV in the world: Samsung unveils 34 foot LED screen designed to replace cinema projectors

      Samsung's 34 foot TV screen to replace cinema screens | Daily Mail Online

      • It has a peak brightness nearly 10 times greater than standard cinema projectors
      • The 4K 34-foot screen accommodates modern movie theater dimensions
      • The screen will be matched with a sound system by Harman


      If you're thinking your TV isn't quite big enough, Samsung may just have the answer.

      The electronics giant has revealed the first installation of its bigger ever screen, a 34-foot LED screen designed to replace a cinema screen.

      It has a peak brightness level nearly 10 times greater than that offered by standard cinema projectors.

      It's the world's first High Dynamic Range (HDR) LED theater display, and has been installed at Lotte Cinema World Tower in Korea.

      The 34-foot has a 4K (4,096 x 2,160) picture quality resolution and accommodates modern movie theater dimensions, as cinema screens are typically larger.

      Samsung says it could dramatically improve the cinema experience.


      'Through sharper and more realistic colors, complementary audio and an elevated presentation, our Cinema LED Screen makes viewers feel as if they are part of the picture,' said HS Kim, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.

      'SUPER S' theater is a new paradigm of movie screening,' said Wonchun Cha, Lotte Cinema CEO.

      'We look forward to working with Samsung to introduce new, high-quality technology to the movie industry in the future, and we are excited to drive customer satisfaction through an improved viewing environment that brings a variety of content to life.'

      The screen exceeds specifications made by the Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI), a joint venture of major motion picture companies to establish a standard architecture for digital cinemas.

      'As the popularity of advanced at-home entertainment systems and streaming platforms increases, theaters must reposition themselves as a destination for an incomparable viewing experience that consumers simply cannot encounter anywhere else,' said Sang Kim, Vice President of Samsung Electronics America.

      'Our new Cinema Screen technology brings a more powerful and high-quality picture to the big screen, creating an environment where viewers feel as if they are part of every scene.'

      The screens direct-lit LED technology allows on-screen brightness to hit levels of light intensity nearly ten times greater than those offered by standard cinema projectors (146 footlambert versus 14 footlambert, a unit of measurement for light intensity).

      Samsung claims the screen is free of optical distortion and interference, and offers a highly accurate and superior color presentation.

      The screen has complementary ultra-contrast and low tone grayscale setting, enabling it to show bright colors and the deepest black at a nearly infinity:1 contrast ratio.

      The screen will also be matched with a sound system by Harman Professional Solutions' Cinema Group and Samsung's Audio Lab.

      Samsung claims the screen maintains its advanced presentation capabilities in ambient lighting conditions, regardless of the content being played on-screen.

      'The launch of our cinema LED display is merely the latest step toward our vision for a complete end-to-end theater experience powered by digital signage,' said Seog-gi Kim, Senior Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.

      'Through modern technologies ranging from touch-screen self-ticketing kiosks to digital concession menu boards and interactive movie posters, Samsung already is helping theaters improve customer engagement and boost operational efficiency.

      'We look forward to continuing to serve as a total solutions provider for the theater industry and finding new and exciting ways to improve the customer experience.'

      The screen is currently undergoing the DCI certification process and recently completed a compliance test at Keio University in Tokyo.

      Wonder how much does that cost?
      If I won the lottery, I would buy one and have my own cinema built around it, haha!
      Wonder if you could plug Sky into it and play all the Sky store movies.

      Certainly it sounds interesting. At 408" though it's a good size.

      There's a yacht I seriously love to own in the Solent at the moment. he's 68m long and 12.5m wide. She does have a cinema room, but unfortunately I don't think it's big enough for this screen. I think that you'd have to own a cruise ship.

      The yacht (Lady Christine) is for sale too. So if anyone is interested in getting me a birthday present, I'd be ever so grateful

      If you want a large video wall you could do worse than this.

      I was at the U2 gig at Twickenham last weekend, stunning visuals and 200 feet across.

      Probably something for the the country estate rather than the cinema room though.

      A big estate definitely, but would be totally reliant on the weather. Not sure how you would protect it hen not using.

      U2, are they still going?
      Remember someone bought me The Joshua Tree cd many years ago and they played at Live aid I think. Played that cd a few times if I remember.
      They never really gelled with me.

      The Stones are still going and they are considerably longer in the tooth.

      The concert was the 30th anniversary of the Joshua Tree, and it was as good if not better than thirty years ago.

      Certainly that system sounds good. I would be concerned about the depth of the screens.

      I can seem to find any details about the Samsung screen, but I would have expected that it wouldn't have such a wide structure behind it.

      Nearly forgot...



      and for those who already have a 4K screen...
