posed LG is the latest in its line of Direct View LED or DVLED TVs to compete with Samsung’s The Wall series.
One model in the LG DVLED TV lineup offers a giant 325-inch screen with 8K resolution and costs $1.7 million.
The screen weighs more than 900 kilograms and contains millions of LED lights. The company previously reserved these monitors for commercial buyers. But now sell it to anyone.
The company’s Direct View LED Extreme home cinema series is clearly aimed at ultra-luxury homes.
The LG DVLED range contains TVs ranging from 81 inches to 325 inches. DVLED screens are promoted to offer exceptional brightness and incredible viewing angles, making them suitable for rooms and halls with plenty of windows and lighting.
Using between 2 million and 33 million individual diodes, a DVLED TV display consists of a series of screen panels stacked together. DVLED technology differs from LCD screens or LED TVs in that it does not use a backlight and produces images directly via LEDs. TVs are available in 2K, 4K and 8K resolutions.
The LG DVLED TV range has an aspect ratio of 16:9. But you can also configure it with an aspect ratio of up to 32:9 if the user wants a larger, more spacious look.
And a higher ratio allows you to watch multiple videos at the same time. Notably, there is also a WebOS console for DVLED TVs, which allows you to turn them into smart TVs.
“DVLED is the supercar of home display technology, delivering handcrafted quality and performance that appeals to those with luxury lifestyles who want something that is not only immersive, but also highly exclusive,” the company said.

The company added: LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Display technology is rated to last 100,000 hours before reaching its half-life, which means it can deliver stunning images for more than 10 years.
Similar to Samsung’s The Wall range of TVs, prices for LG DVLED TVs vary due to differences in size and installation scenario.
LG has started taking pre-orders for the DVLED range. All models in the new series have a five-year warranty.
These types of expensive TVs are fundamentally different from standard LED TVs.
Instead of using an LCD layer to create pixels, and lighting them with separate LEDs, these screens only use LEDs (some use smaller MicroLEDs), similar to what we’ve seen from Samsung’s The Wall lineup and Sony’s Crystal LED lineup.
Like standard TVs, LG’s DVLED home cinema screen is available in different sizes from 108 to 325 inches and resolutions from HD to 8K. And unlike most TVs, it’s available in different resolutions in the same size.
The company claims that most DVLED sizes put out around 1,200 nits. Which is much the same as the brightness of a smaller high-end TV.
It is best to think of DVLED screens as an alternative to a high-end display device that can create an image of 100 inches or larger.
Obviously, DVLED is more expensive. But you get a screen that’s bright enough to use in a well-lit room, unlike projectors.
