Sony Intros 17-inch and 24-inch Trimaster EL OLED Monitors

Sony launched 17-inch and 24-inch Trimaster EL professional-grade monitors, which are based on the organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology. OLED is not to be confused with LED-backlit LCD, which is merely LCD with LED illumination instead of CCFL. OLED is a kind of a flat-panel display technology in which electroluminescent organic compounds spread across a film generate images. Hence, OLED provides far greater picture clarity, and eliminates pixellation, a problem encountered with low pixel-density LCD displays. OLED-generated images are more CRT-like in terms of fidelity. Sony’s new Trimaster OLED monitors are targeted at the broadcasting industry and professional studios that seek bleeding-edge image quality.

Both Trimaster OLED monitors feature resolutions of 1920 x 1080 (full-HD), with 10-bit drivers, 100 cd/m² brightness, and 178° viewing angles. Display inputs include HDMI, DisplayPort, and SDI, which is used in professional development houses. Carrying the model numbers BVM-E250 and BVM-E170, they will cost $28,900 and $15,710, respectively.

Wortmann Intros Terra LED 2450W Full-HD Monitor

German computer major Wortmann introduced Terra LED 2450W, which is a 24-inch, LED-backlit LCD display with full-HD (1920 x 1080) resolution. The LED 2450W makes use of a thin bezel and overall thickness. It also uses a flat, passive base, with the display inputs located at the back of the panel, against a trend of LED-backlit monitors with display inputs located at the base. The panel uses a piano-black bezel finish, while the panel is non-reflective matte.

Resolution aside, the panel features maximum brightness of 250 cd/m², "stellar" dynamic contrast ratio of 15,000,000:1; and response time of 5 ms. The display takes input from DVI and D-Sub, and audio from 3.5 mm stereo jack for its tiny stereo speakers. To keep the display thin, Wortmann decided to use an external power brick instead of internal SMPS. Backed by a 3-year warranty, the Wortmann Terra LED 2450W is priced at €209.

Packard Bell Unveils Sleek Maestro 230 LED Monitor

Packard Bell unveiled its latest sleek and swanky display, the 23-inch Maestro 230 LED. As the name might suggest, it's an LED-illuminated LCD display. With a full-HD resolution (1920 x 1080 px), the display boasts of 12,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 250 cd/m², and response time of 5 ms. It takes input from D-Sub, DVI, and HDMI. Slated for market release in April, the Packard Bell Maestro 230 LED is expected to be priced at €199.

EIZO Intros 27'' Professional Display with Wide Color Gamut

EIZO announced its latest display for professionals, the FlexScan SX2762W-HX. This 27-inch LCD display bears a 16:9 aspect ratio, with a native resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The display uses an IPS panel that gives 97 percent Adobe RGB palette coverage, with 850:1 static contrast ratio and 270 cd/m² brightness. Panel response time is rated at 6 ms. An ambient light sensor adjusts settings optimized to the lighting conditions, while a proximity sensor lets the display know if the user is away from keyboard, which then sends the display into a power-saving mode.

The FlexScan SX2762W-HX takes input from dual-link DVI, DisplayPort, and mini-DisplayPort. It packs a USB 2.0 hub that gives users easy access to a couple of ports. The stand allows height, tilt, and pivot adjustments. Slated for release in the second week of February, the EIZO FlexScan SX2762W-HX comes backed by a 5-year warranty, priced at US $1533.

NEC Display Solutions Improves 23-inch MultiSync EA Series Model

NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the 23-inch MultiSync EA232WMi, a 16:9 model designed for corporate, financial, healthcare, engineering, CAD and other professional applications.

Replacing the popular MultiSync EA231WMi, the new MultiSync EA232WMi maintains an IPS panel for superior color, viewing angles and image quality. Additionally, it adds LED-backlit technology, which provides more energy efficiency and less power consumption, heat and carbon dioxide emissions. The display's ambient light sensor and ECO Mode can further help save energy and prolong product life.

BenQ Intros 27-inch Display with VA Panel and LED-Backlit

BenQ announced a new 27-inch LED-backlit LCD monitor, the EW2730V. It makes use of a vertical-alignment (VA) panel with LED-backlit illumination, giving viewing angles of 178/178 degrees. It offers full-HD resolution (1920 x 1080), with a contrast ratio (static) of 3,000:1. VA panels are said to offer better color reproduction compared to TN-film panels. The monitor looks to be very slim, with a piano-black bezel and a brushed metal stand that has the display connectivity. Unfortunately that the biggest picture on the web, of this mysterious display.

Sony Develops Hybrid FPA Technology, Lowers LCD Response Times

Sony Corporation has developed "Hybrid FPA (field-induced photo-reactive alignment)", a new liquid crystal alignment technique which enables a significantly faster response time for liquid crystal displays. Fast responses of less than 3ms have been achieved in test cells through this technology. Aside from contributing to 'picture quality enhancement in 3D and high frame rate video', this technology will improve 'product stability' during the display panel manufacturing process as well as after long-term use. Additionally, this technology will achieve production efficiencies by reducing the manufacturing process and time.

Sony previously developed the "FPA *1" high-speed liquid crystal response alignment technique based on vertical alignment (VA) liquid crystal modes. One method for improving liquid crystal response time is to generate pre-tilt of the liquid crystal molecules. "FPA" technique uses the alignment layer developed by Sony and maintains pre-tilt of liquid crystal molecules by irradiating UV while applying voltage in manufacturing process. This facilitates the stable and even alignment of the liquid crystal molecules *2, thus achieving improvements in both liquid crystal response time and the contrast ratio. In addition, this has made it possible to eradicate the Mura (uniformity problem) in the display as well as to eliminate the 'sticking image' that can occur after long-term use.

LG Introduces 23-inch 240 Hz IPS LCD Panel for Monitors

LG Display, a leading innovator of TFT-LCD technology, announced today that it has launched the 23-inch 240Hz LCD for monitors (dual monitor and TV use) that refreshes at a rate of 240 frames per second to deliver clear picture quality with no ghosting effect.

The industry have been engaged in a heated race to improve the motion picture response time (MPRT), unveiling products with refresh rates of 120Hz or 240Hz which are respectively twice and four times as fast as broadcast signals (60Hz). However, the technology has mostly been applied to LCD panels for high-end TV panels that are 40-inch or larger. This is the first time that 240Hz technology was applied in a 23-inch product under mass production.
