    Samsung made a giant 34-foot LED TV for movie theaters
    It's ten times brighter than a projector and meets industry color standards.
    https://www.engadget.com/2017/07/14/samsung-made-a-giant-34-foot-led-tv-for-movie-theaters/

    "Samsung has unveiled the Cinema LED Screen that's an epic 10.3 meters (33.8 feet, or 406 inches). It runs at full 4K (4,096 x 2,160) resolution, features an (unnamed) HDR and peaks out at 146 fL of brighntess, "ten times greater than that offered by standard projector technologies," Samsung said in a news release."

    Perfect, but unfortunately it will not fit in any room at my home :)

    Won't it destroy viewers eyesight? I mean, so much light in dark environment right into your eyes, unlike light reflected from projector?

    HDR fodder... deep blacks, sparkling light, IDK how it compares to TV and display brightness, projectors are devilishly dim.

    Maybe they won't need to keep the house lights down so low anymore :)

    For this, you build a house around it.

    I'll try to build a great house, but in the afterlife, if I succeed, that time I'll have more than a great big monitor :)

    Yeah; 10x what a projector offers doesn't amount to much. Even at movie theatre levels (because none of them are really dark...).

    At only 4K though, the optimum viewing distance for those with good eyesight is around 25 feet (for cinema usage). Needs much more resolution for a movie theatre for every seat in the theatre/room to be enjoyed (somewhat equally).

    This would still be great for an open plan home with a wall with two or three floors ceiling height that isn't already full of windows... :)

    If you could (also) turn it around and that side of your home faces a field; you can have hundreds of your closest friends enjoy a show too. Bring big speakers. ;)

    Look at the article again, the speakers come with it :)

    "To complement the image quality, Samsung worked with its JBL by Harman division on the sound tech. That system features speakers around the screen, proprietary audio processing tech, and "Sculpted Surround Sound" from JBL to provide more dramatic and faithful audio."

    I did see that, but any built in TV speaker(s) are usually not worth the power they use. ;)

    And; I meant it more for the 'outdoor' audience too... :)

    Without walls and a ceiling; the sound is totally different when the only boundary is 'earth'.

    It's not an outdoor screen, and it's not a projection based system, it's a real screen, just *huge*:

    "Samsung Electronics has installed its first ever commercial Cinema LED Screen at Lotte Cinema World Tower in Korea."

    The speakers need to be on the sides as described because the screen would block the sound - it's not transparent to audio or anything like a projection screen would be in most theaters.

    You'd need to weather-ize that screen and speakers for outdoor use. Probably could be done, just a bit more green to complete the deal.
