LG’s MicroLED TV to Compete w/The Wall
LGE become the 3rd TV maker to offer very large component level MicroLED TVs, joining Samsung and Sony. “LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Display technology is rated to last 100,000 hours before reaching half-luminance. Aimed at "affluent consumers," the DVLED TVs running webOS will be offered in both 16:9 models (up to 325 inches) and Ultra Stretch video wall-style 32:9 installations (up to 196 inches), which are perfect for viewing multiple video sources at once. The resolutions offered will also vary with size, and ranges from 2K up to 8K. The smallest pixel pitch is 0.9mm, but some models are 1.2mm or 1.5mm pixel pitch which doesn't class as MicroLED. The brightness of the displays is around 1,200 nits, and while the price per model hasn't been shared yet, the high-end 8K 325-inch TV will cost $1.7 million.
LG will bypass stores for this new range of TVs, using a custom-installation dealer program for over thirty display size and resolution combinations. The installation will include an on-site LG field engineer and a twice-yearly visit from LG for the first three years to check the health of the display. There's also a Connected Care subscription allowing your new TV to be monitored remotely.
