Sony to Debut Totally New Display Technology at InfoComm

Canvas-display-small-1024x768-0516Sony 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 millimeters squared. Yes, you read that right.

CLEDIS-Structure-0516Basically, 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 percent black. These a bunched (320×360 pixels each) are housed in one panel that is 18”x16” 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 8K by 2K wall that’s 32’x9’. 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 percent of sRGB).

I 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 it, which Sony is calling CLEDIS (Crystal LED Integrated Structure).

Sony is here but the product isn’t on the company’s website yet.
