Audio Active To Benefit From New Sony 16K CLED TV Technology
Melbourne based Audio Active is set to benefit from their relationship with Sony with the Japanese Company now looking at 16K CLED Technology TV’s as well as 8K TV technolgy for the specialist channel.
Audio Active who sell Sony’s top end projectors and premium TV’s into the custom install market has “seriously opened up the display market” for the Japanese Company who used IFA 2019 to roll out new display technology.
The new technology is based on Crystal Light Emitting Diodes and will be available for commercial and entertainment applications and available to the custom installation channel for residential installations through a selection of specially certified installers who are customers of Audio Active.
Sony President and COO Mike Fasulo touted the display’s 180-degree viewing angle among a host of features, while standing in front of a massive 16-foot-by-9-foot 4K iteration of the display, noting that it would be available through select dealers.
CLED is a modular technology and is size-customizable and configurable in a variety of configurations. According to Sony, it can display 8K HDR video content and beyond, up to 16K. The display is “built” via a combination of screen units, and possible configurations that Sony listed in its press information range from Full HD size comprised of 18 units (110 inches), to 4K size (72 units; 220 inches), to 8K size (288 units; 440 inches) to 16K size (576 units; 790 inches). The latter size measures 63 feet wide by 18 feet when the screen is fully assembled
“Scaling this technology to residential installation marks a milestone in Sony’s efforts to get closer to consumers,” said Fasulo. “Crystal LED delivers over a million-to-one contrast ratio, the most accurate light levels, low heat emission and a picture quality that is absolutely breathtaking. By offering the display in modular configurations, consumers now have an exciting new option for the transition from home projection systems and large-screen TVs.”
The Crystal LED direct view display system boats high brightness of 1,000 nits and uses ultra-fine micro-LEDs measuring 0.003 mm squared – half the width of a human hair – which are 100 times smaller than traditional LEDs. Moving images are also said to be blur-free, due to a high refresh frame rate up to 120fps.
The product will be supported by Sony’s technical team.
