LG's 55-inch WV70 Direct LED display can be configured in an up to 15x15 matrix for a total of 225 displays. Because of the display’s slim 5.3mm bezel, LG says the display can be connected to produce a nearly seamless appearance. The display is capable of producing bright 1080p images through the use of LG’s Direct LED backlighting and local dimming capabilities, and its “Shine-out Film” feature deflects ambient light that typically washes out color and brightness. The display also has an auto shutdown mode that protects the display from overheating, and it can be controlled via RS-232 or RJ45-based Ethernet connections.
