Sony has unveiled the latest innovation in premium direct view LED – the modular Crystal LED C-series (ZRD-C12A/C15A) display systems with high contrast and B-series (ZRD-B12A/B15A) with high brightness.
Both new displays are available in two-pixel pitch sizes (P1.26mm and P1.58mm) to suit different installation needs and expand the line-up of Sony’s Crystal LED for various applications including corporate showrooms, lobbies, industrial designs and productions. They combine ‘impressive image quality, flexibility and scalability’ in installation, with lower total cost of ownership, and leverage Sony’s expertise in providing ‘dynamic visual experiences that faithfully and accurately showcase content as the creator intended’.
The new displays are equipped with the X1 for Crystal LED, high-performance image quality processor. It fully incorporates the LED control technology developed for Sony’s pioneering Crystal LED and the signal processing technology praised in Sony’s BRAVIA TV series. Additionally, the displays enable image accuracy inspired by the high-performance master monitors, providing ‘highly realistic large-scale imagery that maintains image integrity close-up and at a distance’.
Both models are designed to be flexible, long-lasting and easy-to-install. Each display is comprised of modular, seamless and bezel-free tiles that can scale to accommodate a range of sizes, layouts and resolutions. Due to the display’s light weight and streamlined design, it can be installed in various configurations including wall-mounted or in a curved arrangement.
The displays provide enhanced content that is upscaled while maintaining high-resolution (Reality Creation), smooth and artifact-free pictures without motion blur (Motionflow) and showcase impressive gradation expression (22bit Super Bit Mapping). Highlights also include a wide viewing angle and wide color gamut, as well as a various input signals, including HDR, HFR (120fps) and 3D.
“Sony has been creating unforgettable images and engaging experiences that empower and stimulate creators’ curiosity for over 60 years,” comments Yoshi Koike, Product Manager for Crystal LED, Sony Professional Europe. “As we continually strive to get closer to our customers and solve their challenges, we’ve implemented the features and benefits that they value most in a direct view MicroLED display. The ease of installation, accessibility, flexibility and a lower total cost of ownership can further expand spatial expression– all with the outstanding picture quality proven by the original Crystal LED.”
The Crystal LED C-series provides high contrast of 1,000,000:1. This series features a deep black coating for a range of applications including use in corporate showrooms, lobbies, and customer experience centres, industrial designs and domestic installations.
The Crystal LED B-series offers high brightness (1,800 cd/m2 ) ideal for bright environments while still showcasing astonishingly realistic images with a wide colour gamut. This series has an anti-reflection coating with a matte finish that is especially ideal for creators, designers and production applications including virtual sets and studio backdrops. B-series was developed in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment to reflect the creator’s needs.
With lower power consumption and convenient, user-friendly front accessibility, the new displays reduce the total cost of ownership including maintenance, after purchase. In addition, the Crystal LED C- and B-series are both fan-less, ensuring quiet operation and feature a 100-240V AC power supply, providing customers with enhanced usability.
