Sony was recently honored by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences with a Technical Emmy for its Trimaster EL™ OLED monitor technology. This award is the latest addition to Sony's already extensive list of professional honors and industry acclaim, and recognizes one of the company's cornerstone technologies – OLED monitoring technology.

"This industry recognition is an incredibly high honor and a testament to the tremendous amount of effort, creativity, innovation and collaboration that went into the development of this technology," said Gary Mandle, senior product manager at Sony Electronics' Professional Solutions of America group. "When a director or colorist is making sure the color reproduction for a movie or TV show is perfectly accurate, Sony's OLED is one technology they are turning to more and more. That's just one example of the many professional applications for Sony's Trimaster EL OLED monitors."

Sony offers a full line of professional OLED monitors that are ideal for critical evaluation in every aspect of the content creation market. The OLED monitors are distinguished by a range of unique features, including accurate black reproduction, wide dynamic range, excellent color accuracy, and pixel speeds many times faster than current LCD technologies. These are all critical performance requirements for reference monitoring.

Sony was first to bring OLED to the consumer market with an 11-inch TV display, but its biggest success has been in broadcast and video production, where Sony's OLED is used for "critical viewing applications." Sony has more than 15,000 Sony BVM and PVM professional OLED displays in use worldwide.

Sony's professional OLED technology range is offered in three series: The PVM line includes the PVM-741 (7.4 inch), PVM-1741 (17 inch) and the PVM-2541 (25 inch) that are used in editing, dallies review, graphics generation, and special effects.

The BVM F series includes the BVM-F170 (17 inch) and BVM-F250 (25 inch), used for technical image evaluation and are designed for application used in broadcasting.

The BVM E series includes the BVM-E170 (17 inch) and the BVM-E250 (25 inch), which are Sony's flagship models used for cinematic production. They include wider gamut display and follow the Digital Cinema Initiative recommendations for imaging. The 25-inch BVM-E250 and 17-inch BVM-E170 are the first monitors to deliver full HD resolution OLED panels with 10-bit drivers, and the BVM-E Series uses a newly developed Sony Professional Display Engine. Operations include image capture and transport through Ethernet to other displays as well as settings and monitor calibration, Internal rasterizer, Calibrated color gamuts, Automatic calibration using most industry accepted light probes and interfacing to Filmlight Truelight On Set for composition of user LUTs and ASC CDL files.
