97” OLED! Boy howdy!

It’s interesting that the super-huge sets are still no larger than 100”. No one willing / able to break the century barrier yet.

Yeah, I keep ignoring that this is also paced by Corning’s ability to produce massive sheets of glass in volume.

I‘m going to have bug my friend there to get on this. :)

I wonder what sales we might see on the C1 and if they might eclipse Black Friday

At what size will it no longer be able to fit through most doors?

"allowing for the creation of unprecedented form factors such as bendable and rollable TVs."

As they are now able to bend and roll - you should be able to get them through the door - so these won't be limited by door size....

That’s not a practical problem. Doors are at least 8’ tall, and no TV will be 8’ on the short side of 16:9.

The potential problem is for people in apartments with stairways or small elevators. Or for people with tight staircases going upstairs or downstairs.

My problem is getting it down a stairway that’s parallel to the wall. So it’s a tight corner and might not be doable with a 100”+ TV.

I bought a projector that came with a 72 inch screen in the 1980's. Everyone thought it was huge. Now that 72 inches is the 1.33 image on my Sony 86 inch TV.

Roland: BTW, not sure if you know this, but the totally restored Cinerama negatives from "Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm" are to be released on BluRay "Smilebox" late this Spring or early Summer, to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the movie's release. The BD was supposed to be released late in 2021, but "the powers that be" decided to wait until the 60th Anniversary. Can't wait for this!! It's going to be "hhhuuugggeee!"

Samsung had seamless tiles on display with their microLED TV sizes over 100", so we're technically there albeit at over $100K! Nevertheless, using tiles will allow future TVs to easily exceed 100" without the yield issues of a giant monolithic panel
