Many thanks Bob, just to clarify, the only two companies showing OLED technology were Sony and Ikegami ?
I'm curious to see if LCD has improved, based on previous, painful experience, the only LCD monitor I would feel happy grading on is the Dolby.
Also nothing from Barco or Cinetal ?
Thanks again
> Sony> > Featured a “New 4k OLED Technologies” area with a 56” QFHD 4k OLED monitor (available later this summer) along side a technology demonstration of a 30” OLED> 4k monitor that is true 4k (4096 x 2160). No prices were announced, and no photos were allowed.> > Sony also updated their current pro OLED monitor line to the “A series” – featuring a major improvement in viewing angle being the headline here for the BVM E, BVM F, and PVM Series OLED monitors. The demo featured a very up front and dramatic comparison between the two versions. Clearly they have addressed one of the customer’s biggest complaints about OLED.> > New Feature Sets for the PVM and LDM 41 Series monitors also were featured. (Closed Captioning, Time Code, Camera Focus, WFM, Vectorscope and Audio)> > Sony’s newest pro monitor the 4k PVM X300 (30”) was on display, and the Sony booth had many display areas dedicated to 4k Live for HD, 4k Ultra HD Home Theater.>
