Sony announces the Trimaster EL professional OLED monitors (17" and 25")
Update: We found a nice video showing the new monitors, see below
Back in January we reported that Sony plans to release new professional OLED monitors - and they finally did so today. The Trimaster EL series offers two sizes - 17" (BVM-E170) and 25" (BVM-E250). The monitors offer hyper-accurate color reproduction and 'perfect' image quality without motion blur due to the OLED's fast response time. The display support HDMI, DisplayPort, 3G-SDI, SD-SDI and HD-SDI. The monitors are thin - 148mm in depth.
These monitors aren't cheap: the BVM-E250 will be released in Japan in May 2011 for 2.5 million yen ($30,000) and the BVM-E170 will be released in July for 1.3 million yen ($15,000). It's only about 10% more than Sony's equivalent LCD monitors. Here's a nice video showing the two new monitors also discussing the state of the OLED industry:
