    Impressive.

    But i think i prefer Pioneers 9mm thick screen, or the extreme contrast concept they showed off the other day. At least they are practical.

    ^^ practical... indeed.

    What about making the current everyday panels better? lower ms, better contrast etc. Why bother with these tbf.
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    i think it is more about reputation and the target market is not really consumer

    I really don't understand why do we need 100"+ screens, especially not a 9mm thick one.

    Main thing is the weight, I had the luxary to install a 67" Plasma a month ago and it was so difficult to install purely down to weight.

    Second thing, if the screen is 9mm thick, I don't see how it is feasible to transport without snapping the screen in 2 halves. And how would one manage to move the screen into the room without tearing half a house down?

    If one have to split a 100" screen into 25*20" screen with a small line between edges of each monitor, why not just go for a projector which is <20kg compared to a ~80kg TV? Not to mention a projector will go a lot bigger if you want to.
