May 17, 2019

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 17, 2019--

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced that the company was awarded Display of the Year from the Society for Information Display (SID) for its innovative modular MicroLED display, The Wall. Delivering a revolutionary viewing experience, The Wall features pure black images, true color and unmatched clarity.

“We are honored to be recognized with such a prestigious industry award,” said Stephen Choi, Samsung’s Vice President and Head of the North American Display Office. “We are very proud of the technological advancement and innovation embodied by The Wall and see this display really pushing the entire industry forward.”

The Wall is a large-format modular display featuring MicroLED technology. As the newest display technology to be commercialized in over a decade, MicroLED possesses inherent color qualities that produce vibrant-yet-natural colors for an awe-inspiring visual experience with significant advantages over traditional displays.

The Wall’s slim, bezel-less infinity design and modular build allow the display to blend subtly into its surroundings and its customizable décor frame creates a sleek and sophisticated look from every angle to fit any luxury living or commercial space.

Presented by the Society for Information Display, the 2019 Display Industry Awards (DIAs) recognize innovative display products, components, and applications that hold the most promise for shaping the future of the global display industry. The DIAs are awarded each year in three categories: Display of the Year, Display Application of the Year, and Display Component of the Year.

The 2019 DIAs will be presented to Stephen Choi, Samsung’s Vice President and Head of the North American Display Office, at the Symposium Luncheon on Wednesday, May 15 during Display Week 2019: The SID Annual International Symposium, Seminar and Exhibition in San Jose, California.
