Sony has found a purpose for Crystal LED displays - virtual backgrounds on the set

Crystal LED displays

The first time Crystal LED displays appeared in 2012, they couldn’t compete with OLED TVs even though they looked great. Now the Japanese giant is back with a Crystal LED series of panels similar to the Samsung MicroLED novelty and has positioned them in the market to impose itself on those who need to stack parts of the display to make one giant.

It looks like Sony has now found the perfect niche for new technology. Without many visible edges, Crystal LED is the ideal backdrop for virtual sets as used in the production of the hit series "The Mandalorian".

They come in two variants on the market: "C" and "B" series, where both have a 1,000,000: 1 high contrast-brightness ratio. The light intensity of 1,800 nits, or cd / m2 (candela per square meter), makes the "B" series developed by Sony Pictures primarily for studio use without signs of light reflection, while the "C" series is more for installations and showrooms. Both series use HDR, 120 fps, and 3D video panels.

While there’s no mention of price, the huge 4K displays that Sony brought to CES to play the PS4 in 2019 cost about $ 800,000. Over time, prices fall dramatically, but just enough to be available to the average consumer soon - difficult.
