A revolution is on its way down for movie goers - the ubiquitous cinema projector is about to be replaced by a mammoth 4K LED screen, courtesy Samsung.

The 34 inch screen is designed to fit the dimensions of modern movie theaters. Moreover, its peak brightness of 146 footlambert is more than ten times that of standard projectors, ensuring much better viewing experiences.

The screen is also supposed to be free from optical illusions and light interference. Colours are also designed to be depicted much more accurately.

Equipped with complementary ultra contrast and low greyscale settings, it can present bright colours far more accurately than standard devices and it also promises the 'deepest' black, with a nearly infinity: 1 contrast ratio.

The screen not only lives up to but actually surpasses specification s mandated by the Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI), a body establishing standard architecture for digital theatres.

Samsung has roped in Harman Professional Solutions' Cinema group to work in tandem with Samsung's Audio Labs to produce a sound system worthy enough of this screen.

Sang Kim, Vice President if Samsung Electronics America, asserted that as more and more advance home theatre options become available in the market, something extraordinary was needed to put back the 'incomparable' aspect in theatre viewing - he is certain that the new screen will put back the oomph in watching movies at theatres.

Touted as the world's first High Dynamic Range theatre display, it is currently finding pride of place at Lotte Cinema World Tower in Korea.

The screen would be available for commercial use once the DCI certification process is over.
