For those of who need to really utlize space efficiently around the house, especially if you don’t like your flatscreen LCD TV sticking out couple inches from the wall, you can wait for the CineWall, a 95-inch High-Definition TV with a whopping aspect ratio of 2.35:1.
Of course, you will need to shell out about $50,000 USD for this, I’d advice to wait until the prices go down when all the big HDTV manufacturers such as Samsung and Sony start picking up on this idea.
The Runco CineWall™ CW-95HD is the World’s first 95-inch, High Definition 2.35:1 aspect ratio, in-wall display. The CineWall lets you watch movies in perfect CineWide™ 2.35:1 aspect ratio even in a high ambient light environment and get uncompromised reproduction of movies to achieve the experience the movie director intended.
Unlike traditional rear-projection video systems that require a throw distance that is not available in most homes, the new CineWall™ CW-95HD system is a completely self-contained, low-profile design that that less than 33 inches deep and with sloping side panels that enable the system to fit into even the tightest spaces.
