Revolutionary LG Magnit Micro LED display technology turns any wall into a cinema screen

LG has launched an innovative new display technology that enables a 163-inch screen to be assembled from slim display blocks, effectively turning any wall into a cinema-sized UHD screen.

Called LG Magnit, it uses self-emissive Micro LED technology that the company says is ideal for luxury home entertainment spaces, where its high brightness and versatility make it suitable for watching sports and movies in brightly lit spaces.

Each Micro LED cabinet measures 600 x 337.5 x 44.9 mm (w/h/d), and links seamlessly to other cabinets, allowing a huge display to be assembled block-by-block on site. There’s no heavy panels or projection technology to deal with.

Power is sent to each cabinet via pin connectors located on the edges of the LED cabinet hub. LG says only a few wires on the back of the displays are required to link the cabinets to a system controller and power mains.

A newly developed Black Coating technology applied to the front of the Micro LED block is designed to improve contrast and colour accuracy while helping to protect the tiny LED pixels from moisture, dust and external impacts. 

This coating is also anti-glare and anti-fingerprint, to minimise reflections and make it easier to remove unwanted smudges.

The LG Magnit has been launched against a rival technology from Samsung, known as The Wall. That too uses block-assembly Micro LED cabinets to create a huge image.
