Rants and rAVes — Episode 519: InfoComm Special Podcast: Sony to Debut TOTALLY New Display Technology at InfoComm

Gary Kayye's Rants and rAVesCalling it CLEDIS (Crystal LED Integrated Structure), Sony will launch a totally new display technology that is an amazingly small (as in width of a human hair thin) crystal LEDs that are encapsulated behind a black sub-structure. The width of each pixel/LED is only 0.003 mm2. Yes, you read that right.

Basically, the self-emitting display technology uses R (red), G (green), and B (blue) ultrafine LEDs mounted on the display surface, with each pixel emitting light independently. As I said, each pixel is only 0.003 mm2 in size, allowing the remaining surface area to be more than 99% black. These are bunched (320 x 360 pixels each) are housed in one panel that is 18” x 16” each. You can connect up to 72 of these together to make a giant wall – and in Sony’s booth, they will use enough of these to display a native 8X x 2K wall that’s 32’ x 9’. The canvas has a brightness of 1000 cd/m2 (1000 nits), and will support High Dynamic Range (HDR) content, producing imagery with 10-bit color depth and a wide color gamut (approximately 140% of sRGB).

Gary recorded a podcast with Sony’s Sales and Marketing Manager for Visual Solutions, Kevin O’Connor and he explained the new technology and the market applications for CLEDIS.

Sony is here: but the product isn’t on their website yet.
