From cathode rays to qled: 100 years in the evolution of television

A video of incredible imageography, worthy of close study, humbly understated as merely a demo video by Samsung.

John Logie Baird & Philo Farnsworth might then question: has the pinnacle of screen projection been reached?

Only displayed reality could go further....
