SEOUL, Korea – February 28, 2014– Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., announced today that it installed a large scale,17m x 4.8m video wall at JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul that opened on February 4. The video wall, the first of its kind among hotels in Seoul, is comprised of 98 units of Samsung’s 139 cm commercial large format displays (LFDs), connecting 14 units horizontally and 7 units vertically.
As a strategic product targeted at the B2B market, Samsung’s commercial LFDs are designed to meet business purposes by simultaneously delivering diversified information and visual effects.
Featuring Samsung’s slim-bezel LFDs (UD55C), the video wall is 5.5mm wide when two bezels are connected, and can be used to show ultra-high resolution videos and images that are higher than UHD.
As an 11-story building with 170 rooms, JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul is the second JW Marriott Hotel in Seoul with a unique and modern exterior and an elegant and refined interior. Now equipped with the large video wall, its grand ball room is expected to be a popular venue for international events and celebrity wedding ceremonies.
A manager at JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul said, “Since the grand ball room can offer a variety of experiences using rich content delivered by the video wall, the hotel is expected to become a symbolic icon of Seoul.”
Samsung’s LFDs have primarily been used as displays for delivering information, but they are increasingly combined with artistic performances and exhibitions as organizations such as the Korean Pop Experience Hall and the Jeonju Traditional Culture Museum have recently installed video walls.
Meanwhile, Samsung Electronics boasted its industry-top technology at ISE 2014, the largest B2B display exhibition in Europe held in Amsterdam, in early February, by displaying its video wall with an ultra-slim 3.5mm bezel.
A manager at Samsung Electronics said, “With a 26.3 percent market share in the world commercial display market in the first three quarters of 2013, Samsung Electronics is keeping top place for the fifth consecutive year, outpacing runner-up NEC which had a 10.4 percent market share. As the market is anticipated to continuously expand, Samsung is expected to see a high compound annual growth rate of 20 percent by 2017 on average.”
