“For over a decade, our pioneering OLED technology helped shape the landscape of monitoring,” said Theresa Alesso, pro division President, Sony Electronics.  “This noteworthy and valued recognition, which is the second Emmy Award for our BVM series of OLED monitors, further cements Sony’s position as a leader in professional display technology and underscores our commitment to continuing the evolution of content mastering that enhances experiences through a combination of innovation, quality and expertise.”

Sony’s BVM-X300 OLED monitor was introduced in 2015 and was the first monitor to combine 4K resolution, high brightness with 1000 nits peak luminance and 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The model contributed to the adoption of 4K HDR production and set the standard for mastering through its unparalleled blend of resolution, high dynamic range and wide color gamut, which enabled accurate reproduction of both deep black areas and bright peak highlights.  The know-how and engineering excellence exhibited in the BVM-X300 has helped transform the industry and inform future generations of Sony’s display technology, including the BVM-HX310, which delivers the same display performance, while adding numerous additional features optimized for the content creation community.
