Sony builds an insane 783-inch 16K screen in Japan

By utilising its "Crystal LED" technology, Sony has created a staggering 783-inch screen at the research centre of Shiseido, a screen which offers a whopping 16K resolution and stands 19.2 meters long and 5.4 meters high. 

Sony has built this screen using a large number of Micro LED panels, each of which has no bezel and can be mounted side-by-side to create custom displays of almost any size. Even more impressive is that this screen offers a seamless appearance, allowing the display to appear as if it is a single contiguous unit. 

The exact resolution of this ultra-scale monitor is unknown, aside from its pixel width of around 16K. Given the display's size, resolution and non-standard aspect ratio, it is currently being used to showcase custom content for Shiseido. 16K screens aren't expected to be seen outside of the world of digital signage and corporate use for the foreseeable future.   

Crystal LED is Sony's brand name for Micro LED, a technology which has pixels provide their own illumination without the need for a backlight, a technology which is expected to replace OLED in the premium HDR space due to its similar feature set and its apparent lack of burn-in issues.

This screen's 16K horizontal resolution is equivalent to eight 1080p screens sitting side by side, and that doesn't even account for this screen's unknown vertical resolution. Crystal LED/Micro LED screens will likely prove popular when it comes to creating future showpiece displays in the future, with Samsung showcasing a 219-inch Micro LED screen back at CES 2019.

1920cm x 540cm is ofc a 32:9 aspect ratoi(I think that's easier to spot when in centimetres) so assuming the pixels are evenly spaced/shaped it should be the equivalent of 4 1080p screens stacked (15360x4320 final res). I think that gives a pixel size of 1.25x1.25mm.Quote

i want mirco LED NOW!!


im fed up with the inferior LCD/LED tech.


i buy 2000 euro monitors and they are still not "perfect" in a very dark environment.


and with anything cheaper from dell, aoc, asus, benq etc pp. you are sure to notice some kind of backlight bleeding, uniformity issues, etc.
that is maybe good enough for gamers, sure.



and OLED.
they donĀ“t even do many OLED monitors because you are sure to run into burn in issues with a PC (when UI elements are displayed for hours on the same area of th screen).Quote
