Sony Crystal LED Video Walls
The Crystal LED B and C-Series will be the centerpiece of Sony’s booth. Shown in 2K and 4K configurations, as well as a 16×9 layout, the B and C-Series of immersive direct view LED video walls provide crisp and detailed large-screen messaging and immersive visual experiences. Sony says the C-Series is optimized for displaying images with incredible contrast and used in environments such as corporate lobbies, showrooms, museums, and boardrooms. The B-Series, which was recently honored with a 2022 Display Industry Award for “Display Application of the Year” from the Society of Information Display, is designed to be ideal for bright images and is used in lobbies, virtual sets, and production sets. Both series come in 1.2mm and 1.5mm pixel pitches, provide a contrast of over 1,000,000:1, viewing angles of at least 160 degrees and support a wide color gamut that covers 97% of the DCI-P3 color space.
Spatial Reality Display
Sony’s Spatial Reality Display leverages high-speed vision sensor technology to enable a glasses-free, high-resolution 3D modeling, and visualization experience. Using the Unity or Unreal Engine SDK, creators can develop virtual reality, augmented reality, and other types of content and bring this content to life using the display.
Sony Projection Solutions
The VPL-FHZ85 (7,300 lumens/8,000 lumens center) and VPL-FHZ80 (6,000 lumens/6,500 lumens center) WUXGA 3LCD laser projectors support 4K60P input and combine brightness with efficiency, installation flexibility, and advanced operational capabilities. Sony says the projectors offer excellent picture quality and high brightness, delivering rich imagery that accommodates various lighting conditions. The new models incorporate Sony’s Reality Creation real-time signal processing, mapping, and analysis technology, resulting in crisp and clear pictures and text, for effective presentation and display. The Reality Text feature improves text-based presentation materials by providing clearer letters and lines with enhanced legibility.
The VPL-GTZ380/P is a native 4K (4096×2160), 10,000 lumen SXRD model. Sony says the projector combines outstanding contrast, brightness, high dynamic range, and resolution with a wide color gamut to offer an unmatched visual experience in any distance and lighting condition—making it ideal for a wide range of corporate, entertainment and simulation applications. At 112 lbs., the flagship projector incorporates cutting-edge technology into a small form factor that provides installation flexibility and enables quiet operation. The VPL-GTZ380/P also supports HDR formats including HDR 10 and HLG for more natural color reproduction. A valuable new software integration supports 120P and a Night Vision Goggle application for Simulators, creating a powerful enhancement to this popular projector.
Imaging and Analytics Solution
Edge Analytics (REA-C1000) allows users to create video content in real time, without the need for specialized training, additional staff or equipment. The compact and lightweight Edge uses artificial intelligence(AI)-based video analytics technology to analyze the input it receives from connected cameras and automatically extracts the object in focus to combine it with other images in real time. When used alongside Sony’s PTZ cameras, Edge is a virtual camera operator that can elevate and capture a presentation. Additional licenses can be incorporated to enable features including handwriting extraction, PTZ auto tracking, close-up by gesture, chroma keyless CG overlay, and focus area cropping.
Sony’s Think AV Stage at InfoComm 2022
Engaging “Think AV” stage presentations and panel discussions from industry leaders and Sony’s technical team will take place in the booth for in-person attendees, and will also be live streamed at https://pro.sony/infocomm and made available on-demand.
The stage will include industry panel discussions with consultants, integrators, and end users; an in-depth conversation on diversity, equity, and inclusion; an InfoComm 2022 wrap-up conversation with industry leaders; and more.
