If you’re looking for the ultimate home theater display and don’t mind having to deal with a few seams here and there, you might want to take a look at NEC’s new MultiSync X461UN displays. They’re specifically designed for use in large video walls, where a single LCD display is both impractical, and astronomically expensive. Each 46 inch unit features an ultra-narrow bezel which results in a screen-to-screen distance of just 7.3mm. And since you can combine up to 100 displays (10×10) in a single grid, that gives you a total screen area of about 645 square feet.
Each screen features a native resolution of 1366×768 (WXGA), a maximum brightness of 700 cd/m2 and a “typical” contrast ratio of 3000:1. And since nothing looks worse than a video wall with a different color tint on each display, there’s also an optional SpectraView II color calibration solution available which ensures “color uniformity and fidelity across individual and multiple screens, creating a perfectly matched image in tiled environments.” The MultiSync X461UN should be available sometime in April and has an estimated price tag of $6,000.
