In January Sony unveiled its latest innovation in premium direct view LED – the modular Crystal LED C-series (ZRD-C12A/C15A) with high contrast, and the B-series (ZRD-B12A/B15A) with high brightness. Both new displays are available in two pixel pitch sizes (P1.26mm and P1.58mm) to suit high-impact installation such as corporate showrooms, lobbies, and productions where it’s vital to accurately showcase content as the creator intended.
Both series are equipped with the “X1 for Crystal LED”, high-performance image quality processor. It fully incorporates the LED control technology developed for Sony’s Crystal LED and the signal processing technology in Sony’s BRAVIA TV series. Additionally, the displays enable image accuracy inspired by Sony’s long legacy with reference monitors, providing highly realistic largescale imagery that maintains image integrity close-up and at a distance.
Sony’s proprietary Reality Creation supports high res upscaling, and Motionflow prevents motion blur. Proprietary 22bit Super Bit Mapping manages gradation; other features of the new displays include a wide viewing angle and wide color gamut, as well as a various input signals, including HDR, HFR (120fps) and 3D.
For installation ease, each display is comprised of modular, seamless and bezel-free tiles that can scale to accommodate a range of sizes, layouts and resolutions. Due to the display’s lightweight and streamlined design, it can be installed in various configurations including wall-mounted or in a curved arrangement.

This series has an anti-reflection coating with a matte finish that is especially ideal for creators, designers and production applications including virtual sets and studio backdrops. B-series was developed in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment to reflect the creator’s needs. Both monitors are fanless and feature a 100-240V AC power supply.
