“The Wall” by Samsung Wins Coveted Display Industry Award Job
Samsung recognised for outstanding innovation in digital signage
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, 09 May 2019 – Samsung 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 colour and unmatched clarity.
“We are honoured to be recognised with such a prestigious industry award,” said Nithia Pillay, Director: Consumer Electronics at Samsung South Africa. “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 commercialised in over a decade, MicroLED possesses inherent colour qualities that produce vibrant-yet-natural colours 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 customisable 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) recognise 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.
“We are delighted to award Samsung the Display of the Year Award for its modular MicroLED Display, The Wall” said Wei Chen, SID’s Display Industry Awards Committee Chairman. “The Display Industry Awards are SID’s highest honour, presented to recognise the best display products or applications introduced to the market during the previous calendar year. On behalf of SID, we would like to commend Samsung’s ongoing commitment to innovation and to helping shape the future of display performance and solutions.”
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.
