Sony teased it's gigantic bus-sized 16K TV earlier this year, and has now unleashed it to consumers -- uber-rich consumers, as it could cost millions of dollars.

LG has a cheaper 88-inch 8K OLED that 'only' costs $30,000 but if you really wanted to show off then you'll spend up to $5 million on Sony's gigantic, and superior 16K TV.

Sony is using Crystal LED technology that uses micro LED modules, each 16x8 inches at 360x360 resolution and 3 small LEDs per pixel. This allows for a very bright 1000 nits of brightness, 10 bit grayscale, superior color reproduction (140% of sRGB) and what Sony says is "spectacular" 3D.

Thanks to the modular tech, Sony can provide various sizes that span in 4 different sizes and resolutions:

  • 1080p - 18 modules at 8 feet wide
  • 4K - 72 modules at 16 feet wide
  • 8K - 288 modules at 18 feet wide
  • 16K - 576 modules at 63 feet wide (!!!)

Each block costs $10,000 meaning a 4K screen will cost close to $720,000 while the insane 16K setup would cost $5.8 million. Better have a credit card with those reward points!
