LG's Direct View LED Extreme Home Cinema Display Kicks Supersize Into Overdrive!

full?d=1631805136.png

(September 16, 2021) LG Electronics' latest announcement isn't just big, it's ginormous. The display manufacturer known for high-quality OLED TVs is taking on the high-end residential segment with a new Direct View LED (DVLED) series capable of filling massive spaces with dazzling visuals.

LG's DVLED Extreme Home Cinema can be installed in two different aspect ratios. The 16:9 version offers sizes ranging from 81" to 325" diagonal, while an "UltraStretch" video wall introduces a 32:9 aspect ratio that's perfect for showing multiple video sources (like live sports).

The technology uses 2 million to 33 million individual LED diodes (depending on resolution) to deliver high levels of brightness, wide viewing angles, massive amounts of colors, and a long lifespan of performance. And unlike projector-based displays, DVLED's capabilities shine in rooms with lots of windows and high-ambient light.

LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema displays are only available through a new custom-installation dealer program and cannot be purchased at stores. To help simplify installation, LG has packaged over thirty DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Displays ranging in sizes and resolutions. All systems are shipped in LG-branded flight cases, not boxes or crates, for optimum protection during transportation.

Installations of the LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Displays include integrator training, customer support assistance, and on-site help from an LG field engineer during installation. Follow-up services include three years of bi-annual LG on-site visit "health checks," an LG Connected Care software subscription allowing the integrator to remotely monitor their customer's system performance, and a five-year limited warranty. LG says the value of these services lands at $30,000 and only applies to LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema models; pre-built and packaged all-in-one DVLED Home Cinema models are excluded.

"This truly is the supercar of home display technologies, offering hand-constructed quality and performance that appeals to those with luxury lifestyles who want something that is not only immersive but also highly exclusive," said Dan Smith, LG Electronics USA's vice president in charge of DVLED displays. "LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Display technology is rated to last 100,000 hours before reaching half-life, meaning that it could deliver stunning visuals for over 10 years."

MSRP ranges from $70,000 up to $1.7MM based on the size, pixel pitch, and resolution of the display. All versions of LG's DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Displays are available for order now.

I can't find the article I read on these but I remember seeing the heat given off from the 8K version being compared to small private jet engines. And the power consumption is thru the roof. Kudos for releasing new technology. No kudos for doing so irresponsibly.

Really? I’m surprised, you’d think LEDs would be insanely efficient.

cNet was one of the places I read up on these. The big 8K screen comes in weighing over a ton! LEDs are efficient as a backlight but when you’re using something like 24+ million of them, not so much. And LG has been kind enough to include BTU specs for each display so if you have a room that‘s colder than the rest of the house. :rofl: I give LG kudos for being first to market. But nothing else about these is good. I think the market for these will be Middle Eastern countries.

The seal‘s been cracked! Now let’s see what comes a few more years down the road. I think the Dolby Theater in LA has some sort of microLED type of curtain/screen too. That’s what it seemed like when we were watching the AGT finals the last few weeks.

Sony and Samsung have both had large microLED displays available for several years, so they're not the first to market. If memory serves, Samsung was the first. Looks like they need to figure out how to make the micro LEDs more efficient. All of that heat is just wasted energy!

Yeah I forgot about Samsung. I didn't know that Sony had something out too but it makes sense. These are just niche products that I just don't pay enough attention I guess. Get them down to $5-10K for a 100" version that doesn't act as a backup furnace and maybe then I'd start taking it seriously.

Samsung annoucned versions that range between 76" and 110" las December. I beleive the 98" version is about $60K. The 76" is due this year or next, last I heard.

LG is targeting the global warming conference attendees :p
