'M1' is the creation of Austrian consumer tech company C SEED Entertainment; at the touch of a button it rises from the ground and unfolds to a 165-inch screen. It costs a whopping $400,000 - but this is minus installation costs for its owners
A consumer electronics firm has unveiled a 165-inch screen TV that folds up and disappears into the floor when it's not in use.
At the touch of a button, a sculpture-like column rises silently from the floor and unfolds to reveal the enormous 4k MicroLED display, held by an aluminium base.
The display is made up of five separate MicroLED panels that when locked into place look like one uniform display with invisible seams.
Manufacturers say MicroLEDs are brighter than OLEDs and offer the same benefits of high contrast and deep blacks, without burn-in.
The luxury object, known as M1, is the advent of C SEED Entertainment, which has places of work in Vienna, Austria and California.
M1 retails for $400,000 (around £290,000) but its hefty charge tag does not consist of installation, which would require enough area to hide it underground.
'At the rush of a button, the floor opens and inside seconds, a graceful column of machined aluminium rises silently from the floor,' the organization says on its internet site.
The 165-inch screen 'settles down easily' to provide users 'with an awesome leisure experience'.
'Understatement is the artwork of impressing with out seen effort. C SEED M1 is the essence of elegance.'
Vienna-based totally C SEED say M1 is ready to be introduced to customers from the 1/3 sector of this 12 months.
C SEED claims to be pioneering the following step in domestic viewing, marking an evolution from TVs established at the walls.
'In those environments, massive wall-mounted TV displays are an anachronism in modern interior layout,' stated Alexander Swatek, managing associate at C SEED.
'Therefore, C SEED took a totally exclusive course and got here up with a revolutionary layout.'
M1 is available in exceptional colours such as gold, black and titanium and 'a desire of casings to suit all tastes, space necessities and settings'.
'The M1 gives precise enjoyment in great first-class without compromising the character of a room – the only perfect solution for integrating huge TV structures into spacious modern-day indoors design' stated Swatek.
Micro LED displays depend upon millions of tiny self-emissive modules, which provide off red, green, and blue mild to mix for stunningly sharp colorings.
Some of the top tech agencies like Apple and Samsung assume MicroLED presentations to update cutting-edge top OLED screens.
MicroLED could repair the burn in problem commonplace to OLED presentations, which takes place if a static image is left on display for too long.
However, MicroLED isn't currently able to bending like OLED TV screens, like LG's OLED 65-inch TV that has an 8K display that rolls up into its base.
C SEED therefore built 5 MicroLED panels that fold up into a column, but while joined together appear to be one display screen.
'Far past the skills of LCD and OLED, the today's 4K MicroLED generation creates amazingly vibrant colours and a genuinely beautiful decision,' the corporation says.
'The all-essential black is deep and correct like never earlier than because of a unique screen surface treatment.'
