String together three of Samsung's 27-inch curved widescreen computer monitors and what do you get? An immersive gaming experience if the game itself is designed for it.

Both Samsung and LG were showing huge 8k displays (Samsung's is shown here) and drawing crowds (I couldn't get near enough to LG's to shoot a photo!). While clearly technological demonstrations (with 16 times the resolution of 1080p "Full HD,") someone in Korea thinks this would be a nifty idea. But on the size sets most people buy, I'm not at all sure, apart from the Wow factor at a CES.

For those who can't position a video projector in the usual locations, LG offers the Mini Beam PF1000U at $1399. Said to offer 1000 lumens, it can be positioned close to the screen or a suitable wall as shown here.

China's TCL is out to make a name for itself. The company held its first CES press conference on the eve of the show and, as you can see from the photo, spared no expense on constructing an extravagant exhibit.

It may be next fall before we see TCL’s premier Xclusive X1 Series. The largest is the 65-inch model shown here. No prices were offered as yet (projected retail prices were, in general, in short supply at the show)...

Manufacturers are starting to realize that some folks locate their televisions where the back is visible. In the past the rear panel hasn’t exactly been a showpiece, but this TCL design shouldn’t embarrass anyone.
