With the advancement of technology, new generation TVs are going dominate the market, thus outdating those all typed television sets. In my opinion, TV as furniture becomes more important – if someone is really going to move to even larger screens then they have to be less obtrusive. Future kind of television sets actually are plastic display that can be unrolled and put on a wall like wallpaper.
By 2030 it will be possible to get a third of the price off a TV in exchange for the authorization to share viewers’ watching habits, and that TVs will get impressively big. A decade from now, people will continue to seek-out high production value content, and will still want to watch this on large screens, up to 100 inches in size – or may be more, thus turning every household into a mini theater hall.
Living rooms in particular will be designed to accommodate ever larger screens, and more households will be able to afford larger TV sets as manufacturers will offer competitively cheaper price for the authorization to share people’s viewing habits with advertisers. Many will have accepted the trade-off for their data in order to get a better-quality screen with the guarantee of high-resolution pictures. By the end of 2021, the very perception of conventional TV sets will greatly change. High-tech TVs will replace the existing ones. Since last year, there has already been a variety of next generation TVs in the market, although, due to the pandemic, most of the new types of TVs could not get much attention of the prospective users.
A re-think of what a TV should do, look like and behave is always on the cards if the last CES-2020 was anything to go by, with the major TV brands unveiling everything from rollable and rotating sets to modular and super-massive displays.
What sticks and gets forgotten is never known too far in advance, but either way, we are entering an era of ‘personalized viewing’ writ large. For now, here are sic next-gen TV designs that could pave the way for the future of television.
South Korean LG’s rollable OLED TV
Likely to cost around US$ 60,000, LG Display has been touting its rollable OLED TV for a while now. The big new trick with this 2021 version is that it unfurls from the ceiling, which is effectively saying that, yes, everyone really wants a big-screen home cinema, but not a projector.
South Korean Samsung Sero TV
Everyone is embracing vertical video, so why not swivel a TV like a smartphone? We can think of dozens of reasons why not, but Samsung’s TV engineers nevertheless think that people might want a TV that rotates. Cue the Samsung Sero – the name translates as ‘vertical’ in Korean – a concept TV unveiled at CES 2020.
Japanese Sony’s super-size Crystal LED TV
When everyone wants a bigger TV – how about a 790 inch television set? Sony’s Crystal LED display – which has ultra-fine micro-LEDs inside that are 100 times smaller than on any average LED TV – demands a big space. It is sols as a full HD resolution 110-inch screen, a 4K version in 220-inch, an 8K resolution 440 inch, and as a whopping 16K resolution 790-inch ultra-monster screen. It is almost like having a cinema at home or any other place. But sadly, it costs over US$ 5 million, which is beyond the buying capacity of many people.
Glass Factory holographic TV
The main problem with hologram is people need to have something to project light onto it. But here is Glass Factory’s extra special holographic 32-inch TV. It achieves volumetric, stereoscopic 3D-dilemtional holograms in 8K resolution by placing a second glass screen in front of the first. As well as 33.2 million pixels, it has also got a 45-element light field display, so a lot of people can get a 3D image from virtually anywhere in front of it, and even get a different view from 45 separate positions. It flashes up those images at 60 frames per second.
TCL’s 8K Vidrian Mini-LED TV
This one is all about picture quality, but have you ever heard of Mini-LED TV technology? Everyone in tech knows that LED and QLED are not as impressive, when it is about picture quality.
For now, it is all about Chinese TV maker TCL, which unveiled an 8K resolution Mini-LED TV concept called Vidrian, that combines Quantum Dot tech with LCD tech and boasts 25,000 micro-meter LED backlights.
South Korean LG’s bendable video walls
If people want bigger, flatter TVs, and ultra-detailed 16K resolution, possibly video walls are the future of the TV. This 65-inch bendable OLED displays installed on the wall of a plane, accompanied by transparent plastic ‘POLED’ screens to use as cabin dividers.
There will be lot many types of next-gen TVs in the market by 2025, and most possibly – the conventional idea of a TV set is going to change.
