Thought your 65-inch TV was on the large side? Samsung is now rolling out its modular MicroLED TVs globally, with a maximum display size of 292 inches, for the truly ambitious among you.

What is MicroLED? It's the proprietary panel technology developed by Samsung for creating LED displays in a variety of shapes and sizes, essentially using smaller LED building blocks to piece together a larger whole – like incredibly high-tech Lego.

Each 'block' measures 806.4 x 453.6 mm (around 36 inches diagonally), with a display resolution of 960 x 540 pixels (HD). This makes it possible to scale up to mind-boggling TV sizes, and Samsung has indeed released a version of Samsung The Wall – the branding for its MicroLED models – that goes up to 292 inches with 8K resolution.

Other example sizes include 146 inches and 219 inches – as if that wasn't enough – with the smallest being 75 inches, which is already at the larger end of today's TV shopping tastes.

The market for such massive MicroLED TVs will certainly be small – how many of us can even fit a 75-inch TV in our home?

There's certainly attraction for businesses as well as personal residences, which Samsung covers in a PDF release (opens in new tab) for The Wall:

"A modular form factor allows The Wall’s size, shape and ratio to be customized to your spatial and aesthetic needs. Whether it’s a spacious lobby or a private home theater, The Wall gives creative freedom to make optimal use of any space."

You can check out Samsung's product page here (opens in new tab), with a contact form for purchase requests or pricing info (it'll be a lot). Given the customizable sizing, it's not quite something you can buy off the shelf.
