Thread Starter 
I will be buying this 110" Television.

Lulz Kenneth I have a feeling this thread will become lots of people coming here to ask you for pix and impressions, but probably not too many other owners!

Anyway - I'll be the first! Glad you're pulling the trigger and I look forward to your impressions...

....since my 84" is way too small for 4K ??? If so, I fully agree biggrin.gif.

Anyway, in good old times owner threads were made by actual owners. They were preceded by anticipation threads when it was known the product is in the pipeline. For now even anticipation thread would be premature as the 110" displays were barely demonstrated with manufs refusing to tell about actual productivisation and thus one can only talk about their appearances at shows.

Also, irkuck, I bet you remember something else from the "Good Old Days". When things like this were called "Vaporware".

^However, since this thread became the fact of life even if so prematurely born, one has to underline that the topic of 110"@4K displays is very justified.

This is because calculations show that 110" is necessary for getting full advantage of the 4K in standard living room viewing conditions. The 'standard' meaning here that typical viewing distance is about 10 feet and the 4K full added value shows up at distances in the range of 2 PH (Picture Heights). No wonder then that somebody owning 84" is now craving for the 110" smile.gif.

The 110" size should thus become normal item in the 4K display product lineups. Question is then about its potential market size and price. About the price, it does not have to be exorbitant if one
remembers that 110"@4K=4x55"@2K which shows that 110"@4K is technically no more than four standard 55"@2K displays. Thus, any plant capable of making 55"@2K should be able to make 110"@4K by changing litography masks and saving on the glass cutting steps. At first sight, not being an expert on LCD manufacturing, it seems then that the price of 110"@4K should not be very different from the price of four 55"@2K displays.

Regarding the potential market size, the 110" dimensions prevent its installations in many living rooms. But 110" can make up by cannibalizng the home projector/home theater segment which commonly has screen sizes in this range. There seems thus to be a place for 110"@4K displays at reasonable prices.

LCD pricing is about yield. It is more difficult to find a continuously perfect 110" panel vis a vis a 55" so on and so forth as a matter of probability. Definitely not 4x 55".

This is my projector screen size - 110". Still don't have a place to install it given room lighting, but a flat panel...yum. Wake me when they're $5k wink.gif

Which channel is offering/selling it? This must be introductory price for the oligarch/mogul segment, after some time it should be getting down to the masses.... speed of it depends if the panels will be available to other TV manufacturers to get healthy competition rolling.

Yield is currently not a problem in the LCD manufacturing. One can even find incredibly cheap smaller size 4K LCDs which could have more yield problems due to a smaller pixel pitch. Manufacturing of 110"@4K can be done on the same lines as the 55"@2K and using the same process, there is no new investment required. Thus, the estimate of price as not very different from 4x55" should hold and obviously the fact it is made in China helps.

You penny-pincher, this beast will be a bargain even at $10K smile.gif.
