Samsung, it appears is on something on a roll with regards to its screens. Fresh from debuting its spectacular 8K TVs towards the end of last month, the company has earned a feather in the cap for its modular MicroLED display, called The Wall, as the Society for Information Display (SID) is set to give the company a coveted Display of the Year award.

Samsung’s display was lauded for its pure black images, true colour and its clarity. 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 enables it to fit into 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 honoured to be recognised with such a prestigious industry award,” said Nithia Pillay, director of 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.”

“We are delighted to award Samsung the Display of the Year Award for its modular MicroLED display, The Wall,” added 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,” he added.

The 2019 DIAs will be officially presented to Stephen Choi, Samsung’s Vice president and head of the North American Display Office, at the Symposium luncheon this Wednesday, during Display Week 2019 - the SID Annual International Symposium, seminar and exhibition in San Jose, California.
