Default Sony Unveils Crazy Expensive 17-inch and 25-inch OLED Displays

Quote:
The hype surrounding OLED technology has somewhat settled down in recent months, instead giving way to LED-backlit LCD displays that are cheaper to produce. Lest you forget completely about OLED, however, Sony this week announced (PDF) a pair of OLED monitors designed for professionals. The 17-inch and 25-inch monitors are part of Sony's new reference-grade BVM-E series and are supposed to be on par with CRTs in color accuracy.

"These new monitors are the next step in professional displays, providing end users with extremely high picture quality," said Gary Mandle, senior product manager at Sony's Professional Solutions of America group. "This is breakthrough technology for applications where visual performance and accuracy are paramount, offering an unbeatable combination of image reproduction, color accuracy, reliability, and stability."

According to Sony, these are the first monitors to boast Full HD resolution OLED panels with 10-bit drivers. Sony says you can expect deep blacks with high dynamic range, blur-free motion, a wide color gamut, and accurate picture reproduction. Professionals will have plenty of inputs to choose from with the BVM-E series, including 3G/HD/SD-SDI, HDMI, and DisplayPort.

The BVM-E250 will ship in mid April and the BVM-E170 in June, and if you can afford them, then definitely don't quit your day job. Ready for sticker shock? The 25-inch model will come priced at around •2.4 million ($28,900), and the 17-inch display at about •1.3 million ($15,700). Medic!

I don't think $29,000 is going to go down very much in the next couple years.

No, that will take quite a few years, until OLED becomes standard.

Remember how much LCDs were at the CRT days?

LCDs came down exponentially too though. They were in the thousands and 3 years later were around $500 for a 15 inch. It will take time but they'll be affordable soon enough.

They aren't meant for gamers just yet. Maybe not ever.

They're purely for professional use.

Sony was screaming at the top of their lungs a few years ago about how OLED will be the next big thing. A screen doesn't need to be targeted at gamers for people like myself to want to buy them. When debuting the technology a few years ago we saw these paper thin flexible awesome screens. I want this for my PC. Myself, I'm more than a small time gamer (since gaming is the past time to my past time.....OCing and benching), I'm an enthusiast who likes new technology....especially this. See what I was promised become a screen with a box....is a bit disappointing to say the least. Paper thin screen with the accuracy of a CRT would be amazing for watching movies in my PC room as well (since I don't have my projector yet).

Heh I'm sure we'll get there eventually and I agree that would be awesome. But for now we have boxy OLEDs.
