Definition: curved screen

A display screen that is slightly curved left to right. Introduced in the 2013 time frame, curved-screen TVs were touted to be more "immersive" for the viewer. While the curvature can minimize stray reflections in the room, the sets do not hang flat against the wall. As of 2020, only a small number of curved screens are available.

However, curved-screen monitors for computers are alive and well, and numerous models are available. Gamers especially love the curved design. Contrast with flat screen.
