Just One Touch installs the world's first $800,000 219-inch Samsung The Wall residential microLED TV

An California-based integrator, Just One Touch/Video & Audio Center, announced that it has installed the first-ever residential installation of Samsung's latest 219-inch microLED The Wall TV. The price of this project was about $800,000. The installation took three days to complete.

The 219-inch display is made from the IW-008A modules, which offer a 0.84 mm pixel pitch, 120Hz refresh rate, a peak brightness of 2,000 nits and a maximum brightness of 250 nits.

Raysolve Technology demonstrate a 0.39" full color QD-CC microLED microdisplay prototype

Hong Kong based microLED microdisplay developer Raysolve Technology announced its first demonstration of a microLED microdisplay - a full-color 0.39" display.

The display is based on blue LEDs and a photolithographic QD color conversion layer. Raysolve is using a unique process, which is semiconductor process compatible, to create a novel optical design and material structure that achieves higher contrast, improved colors and a more efficient display.

Focally unveils prototype AR glasses that use a full-color microLED display engine

India-based startup Focally unveils prototype AR glasses that feature several innovative technologies, including a full-color microLED based display engine.

Focally says that its Universe AR glasses will enable full-color and monochrome display modes, which leads us to believe that this display engine is built from 3 separate monochrome microLED displays, perhaps a similar design to Vuzix's display engine. Using waveguide optics, the company says that the display provides a 30-degree FOV. The company says that the display engine is the world's smallest and brightest, but does not provide any technical details.

C SEED announces new premium foldable outdoor microLED TV, the HLR series

In 2021, Austria-based C SEED released a high-end microLED TV, the $400,000 165" 4K C SEED M1, which has a unique foldable design, which makes use of seven large MicroLED panels.

C SEED now announced a new outdoor foldable MicroLED TV, called the HLR series. The displays (both based on seven panesl) offer a brightness of 4,000 nits and a resolution of 4K. There are two models, a 144" one which costs $298,000 and a 201" one that costs $590,000.

Leyard starts producing microLED displays with Saphlux's QD color conversion technology

LED display market Leyard Optoelectronics announced that it developed the world's first mass-produced microLED display that uses quantum dots color conversion technology. Leyard collaborated with Saphlux (of which it owns around 12%).

Leyard adopted Saphlux's NPQD R1 micro LED technology, and have completed the development and testing of the display technology, and now it can mass produce NPQD-powered displays.

Xerox's PARC developed a thermally-induced microLED transfer process

Researchers from Xerox PARC have developed a new micro-transfer printing technique that can be used to mass-transfer microLED devices. This technology offers high performance, simple and robust structure, and high process scalability and flexibility.

The new technology uses thermally induced adhesion modulation of shape memory polymer (SMP) materials. The idea is to use a print head that uses an individually-addressable micro-fabricated resistive heater array, which locally delivers heat for transfer of single microLED devices.

Nanosys/Glo shows a 0.7" 480x272 microLED microdisplay prototype

In 2021, Quantum Dots developer Nanosys acquired 3D Nanowire microLED display developer Glo. At Displayweek 2022, Nanosys showed Glo's latest new microLED microdisplay prototype. You can see a demonstration in the video below.

The display is 0.7-inch in size, with a resolution of 480x270, or 787 PPI. That is very low for a microdisplay. The microLED chip size is 7x7 um, and the brightness is 50,000 nits. The performance is underwhelming - however such a solution could find applications, depending on the price - and Nanosys suggests using it in an automotive HUD solution.

Innolux unveils a 12.3" tiled microLED display module prototype

Taiwan-based display maker Innolux demonstrated a 12.3" microLED tiled seamless display module prototype, based on an LTPS backplane. The display achieves a brightness of 700 nits and a resolution of 480x180 (40 PPI)

The display is driven by an active matrix backplane, and uses inkjet-printed quantum dots based color conversion system (which we do not have any more info for, as of now). The LEDs themselves are 20x40 um in size.
