Samsung’s 4K TVs Are Getting All Bent Out of Shape

Samsung’s 4K TVs Are Getting All Bent Out of Shape | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Curved UHD TVs are going to be a big trend this year.

We’ve already an extremely promising one come out of LG’s camp (and it’s OLED, too!).

Unlike 4k resolutions and OLED technology which are clear advantages, the jury is still out on the curve.

The benefits are less quantifiable, and are far less obvious.

Plus, you’re increasing the footprint and making it less mountable. All that is to say that the curve is a trend which may or may not end up being just a passing fad, which means ultimately, you may or may not want to pay a premium for it.

Andre Bontems's insight:


.. Let us keep in mind that a flexible screen that can shift from curved to flat with the push of a button on the remote is already on display at the CES.

UHD: Trouble With the Curve

UHD: Trouble With the Curve | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Curved screens present three major difficulties: first, the arc cuts down on off-angle viewing, reducing the number of potential viewers at Super Bowl parties and family film nights; second, curved sets can’t be wall mounted (at least not the ones I’ve seen so far); and, third, a curved TV completely defeats the purpose of a “flat” TV, which is to take up less space.


Curved UHDs answer the riddle of how a TV can be thin and fat at the same time.


If a wide curved screen were really more advantageous for the viewer, movie theaters would have installed them years ago.


They aren’t (except for IMAX), so they don’t.

Samsung reveals a wild bendable TV prototype and its curved, 105-inch Ultra HD TV

Samsung reveals a wild bendable TV prototype and its curved, 105-inch Ultra HD TV | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Samsung has made a habit of demoing some off-the-wall television designs at CES, and this year is no different.


The strangest new design is a wild 85-inch prototype that the company's simply calling the "Bendable TV."


The demo unit switched between a flat panel and a curved screen at the touch of a button, with a mechanical system pushing out the edges of the screen to achieve the transformation.


It's eerie to see a 85-inch television bend before your eyes, and while it makes for a very impressive tech demo, we aren't sure what Samsung plans to do with the TV.

LG Claims World’s Largest OLED TV Title With 77-inch Ultra HD Set - Digits - WSJ

LG Claims World’s Largest OLED TV Title With 77-inch Ultra HD Set - Digits - WSJ | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


LG is making the first declaration of awesomeness with a triple threat:

The company says it will debut a 77-inch OLED television that will boast the Ultra HD resolution – 3,480 x 2,160 pixels – and a curved screen.

This makes it the world’s largest OLED set, says LG, an important bragging point because OLED (organic light-emitting diode) technology promises unparalleled contrast and response time, not to mention the thinnest screens.

Instead of requiring a separate light source to illuminate pixels, like LCD TVs, OLED pixels illuminate themselves when they receive electric current.

OLED has long been the “next great thing” in the TV business – and at the CES show – but TVs based on the technology have been slow to hit the market.

As for that curved shape, TV makers argue that it offers a more immersive picture.
