Last week Sony proudly showed off its new line of Trimaster EL OLED (organic light-emitting diode) displays, unveiling two products of the professional BVM-E series, bound to set their buyers back a few dollars.
Thee 25-inch BVM-E250 and 17-inch BVM-E170 feature stunning colors, rich blacks, unparalleled clarity and power-efficiency as result of OLED technology, along with full HD resolution of 1920×1080, 10-bit RGB color and 3G/HD/SD-SDI, HDMI and a DisplayPort connections.
The monitors are aimed at professional studios and broadcast who have deeper pockets than your average consumer, given that the displays cost approximately $15,000 for the 17″ and $26,000 USD for the 25″.
“These new monitors are the next step-up in professional displays providing end users with the highest picture quality ever seen, well above any other existing display device.” said Daniel Dubreuil Senior Product Specialist at Sony Professional Solutions Europe.
“This is breakthrough technology for applications where visual performance and accuracy are paramount, offering an unbeatable combination of image reproduction, colour accuracy, reliability and stability.”
The BVM-E250 is expected in April 2011, with the BVM-E170 in late June, and while it may be out of reach for most for now, OLED offers interesting prospects for the future.
