Sony announced up to 16K modular TV screens for ultra-rich consumers

Sony has decided to offer its Crystal LED display technology to consumers, allowing them to create large, modular screens with resolutions of up to 16K. 

This system is designed using MicroLED panels which measure 16 x 18-inches and offer a resolution of 360×360, pixel brightness levels of 1,000 nits, 99% black surface levels, 10-bit colour support and 140% coverage of the sRGB colour space. These screens also support a refresh rate of 120Hz. 

Each MicroLED panel reportedly costs around $10,000 US, making a 1080p 110-inch setup £180,000, a 4K 220-inch setup $720,000 and a 16K 790-inch setup $5.76m. Sony’s MicroLED panels are designed to join together seamlessly, making the screen look like a large, singular panel.  

With this kind of pricing, Sony’s Crystal LED TV setups are designed exclusively for the multi-millionaire market. The kind of people that want a cinema room in their super-yacht. Previously, this screen technology was only sold to commercial customers.  

So, if you have a couple of million burning a hole in your pocket and you want to upgrade your home cinema setup, Sony now has a new option for you. Now the rest of us can wonder how long it will take for MicroLED TVs to reach affordable pricing levels for mainstream users.
