Sony CLEDIS with ultrafine LEDs Unveiled

Large scale LED displays just got dramatically better with the new Sony CLEDIS.

Sony announced today Sony CLEDIS. This new technology, Crystal LED Integrated Structure (CLEDIS), uses Sony’s ultrafine LEDs in a unique surface mounting structure as its light source, enabling high quality large scale displays not possible with even the the current LED array technology.

“It’s a new type of canvas for limitless flexibility and creativity in public spaces and high-end visual entertainment,” said Kevin O’Connor, senior manager, sales and marketing, visual simulation and entertainment at Sony Electronics. “Compared to the technologies currently available for large-scale display, it’s a leap forward in depth, contrast, color, resolution – and pure visual impact.”

Sony CLEDIS is designed for commercial applications and immersive experiences, from industrial product design and manufacturing, theme parks, museums, and high-traffic lobbies to corporate boardrooms and broadcast studios – any environment requiring realistic simulation on a large scale and detailed video displays.

The technology has a viewing angle of nearly 180 degrees, with corner-to-corner image uniformity in terms of brightness and color, even on a large screen.

The canvas has a brightness of 1,000 cd/m2 (1000 nits), and will support High Dynamic Range (HDR) content, producing imagery with 10-bit color depth and a wide color gamut (approximately 140% of sRGB).

The scalable system is made up of multiple display units (each measuring 18 x 16 inches) that can be joined together with no bezels to create a limitless and seamless large-screen display.

The canvas also features Sony’s pixel drive circuitry, to achieve fast video response with a frame rate of 120fps. This is critical for sports, concerts, or training simulations, where users need to present large screen visuals with no delay or motion artifacts.

The Sony CLEDIS display unit (ZRD-1) and display controller (ZRCT-100) will be shown for the first time in public at InfoComm 2016 in Las Vegas, June 8 to 10, in an 8Kx2K, 32’x9’ configuration and is planned to be available in early 2017.
