However, TVs will not suffer all the drawbacks of videoprojection. Microled displays are showing up and I presume that in 10 years from now these will be taking over the cinemas and start entering the consumer market as well. So my comment about vpr makers not too much interested in providing the best possible product in this market destined to die out.
Sorry but this has been discussed a ton elsewhere. Projectors aren't going away. Nor is a 100" screen good enough for most that have projectors. People are going even larger on their screens. I only have a 135" screen and I can tell you no way I'd settle for a 100, 110 instead. My friend just built his room with a 185" screen.
The micro led screens that are comparable sizes are going to need dedicated power outlets and be generating far too much heat for a regular theater type room. The technologies that aren't able to be assembled separately would be getting too large to fit through normal house door ways etc. Not to mention there's no way to have acoustically transparent LED TV screens.
Currently, the Christie Eclipse projector, which supposedly costs in the 6 figures, outputs true LED like contrast and picture and is far cheaper than equivalently sized microLED screens. Projector technology is constantly being worked on and advancing.
