A Wallpaper Display is a pre-constructed large scale display used for video installations. The display comes in 0.5cm thick by 1m2 panels, allowing installation of virtually any size of display, The display contains a self-configuring display system which allows the edges to auto-connect to produce one large display, and enable simple connection to existing computing and entertainment systems. The display itself has a 85 µm pixel pitch, allowing near perfect image reproduction.

The panels are available in smaller sizes, down to about 2cm x 2cm.

At the next technology level wallpaper displays are often called wallscreens and sometimes include a touch-sensitive layer for dynamic control and are used for live video communications when combined with video cameras and audio speakers and microphones. By TL–14 they are sometimes replaced by holographic displays when more volume is available for the display.
