Sony is unveiling its first color professional camera viewfinder based on Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology at the NAB 2008.
The 11-inch (viewable area, measured diagonally) HDVF-EL100 model is Sony’s first non-consumer application of an OLED panel. Sony has been selling the XEL-1 OLED TV since last year.
The viewfinder features a rugged design for the challenging environments often encountered by professional production crews.
Its pixel resolution is 960x540px, and it also delivers a wide viewing angle, a wide color gamut and extremely fast response time. Designed especially for professional camera operators’ use, a flexible mechanical design allows for comfortable operation, and a “stand-back” feature allows operators to remain a distance from the camera without sacrificing viewing quality.
OLED panels help prevent light emission when reproducing dark shades, resulting in very deep blacks and a contrast ratio of more than 1,000,000:1.
The new viewfinder is expected to be available later this year, with suggested list prices to be announced.
