I want to make certain I understand what your are saying. It sounds like you are saying if Samsung or Sony produce MicroLED panels that are 9-12 inches square, it would be a challenge to keep them perfectly aligned so as to hide the seams if they are slightly off axis, but you are suggesting if they make much larger panels, so a user would only need to combine four of them, that would make it much easer to keep in perfect alignment. Is that correct?
Hey there long-timer. I think it's a tradeoff. Smaller panels can probably be manufactured to tighter tolerances such that they are very close to truly flat. But, since there'd be more of them, to the extent that there was any flex/bend, you might have to tend to more of them to keep the overall image looking good. OTOH, fewer, larger panels means fewer panels to keep in line, but, because each panel is larger, they're more likely to not be perfectly flat.
Check that owners thread for The Wall in the $20+ sub forum. He talks about the adjustability built into the rear of each panel. Hold a piece of paper in your hand and think about all the ways/directions in which it could flex, and think about the correction tools that would be required to 'unbend' it in all those directions. They've built that into The Wall, but that product is insanely expensive (and even with those tools, you have to pay Samsung to install the thing...)
