The world’s largest television set was today put on sale by Samsung. The TV measures 110 from corner to corner and is four times sharper than a high-definition TV. It currently costs around £100,000.
It achieves achieves its precise picture – which has been compared to looking through a window – through U-HDTV (Ultra-High Definition Television) technology, which packs in four times as many pixels per inch as current high-definition sets.
The Samsung U-HDTV, which is 102 inches wide and 70 inches tall, is bigger than a king-sized bed.
Samsung said they have received ten orders from the Middle East already, though Chinese buyers are expected to snap up the largest portion of the sets.
The new model dwarfs the size of the former largest Samsung U-HDTV, which measured 85 inches.
They replace the previously-touted OLED technology, which Samsung and rivals LG were last year promoting as the future technology. But the specially-treated LED bulbs were deemed to expensive for the huge screens, and both manufacturers have now embraced U-HDTV.
According to reports, global sales of ultra-HD TV sets will surge from 1.3 million this year to 23 million in 2017.
Expert Barry Fox said: ‘The pictures are mind-blowing, it is like looking through a window.’
