Sony Digital Cinema 4K will demonstrate its new Crystal LED direct view display technology at the 72ème Congrès de la Fédération Nationale des Cinémas Français in Deauville from September 25-28.
The technology, which was shown at last year’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas, is being shown for the first time in France. Sony will be showing a display measuring 4.8 by 2.7 metres.
Crystal LED employs an array of high-brightness display modules. These can be tiled seamlessly to create an ultra-large flat screen of any proportions, with no visible gaps between modules. Very high contrast and huge color range are complemented by a very wide viewing angle.
“While Crystal LED isn’t yet a commercialized product, it gives an exciting flavor of the options for tomorrow’s exhibitors”, said Enrico Ferrari, regional sales head, Central Eastern and Southern Europe theatre solutions for Sony Digital Cinema. “Today, exhibitors have an unprecedented choice of lamp- and laser- based solutions for presentation in any size of theatre. Looking further ahead, that choice will get wider still with Crystal LED. This will allow exhibitors to pick the optimum blend of technologies to suit their operational and commercial needs.”
Sony will also be showing its SRX-R800 Series laser projector.
