Sony has just announced that it will soon start selling its new series of modular displays. These displays can be used to create digital movie sets, which is similar to the technology that was also used to create the popular Star Wars series, The Mandalorian.
According to an official announcement from Sony (Via TheVerge), the company is going to start selling its Mandalorian like virtual set displays. The technology resembles the digital sets that were used to create The Mandalorian by Industrial Light & Magic and Epic Games. These displays are a part of the company’s Crystal LED line, which arrive in the form of modular panels that use MicroLEDs. To put it simply, the modularity enables these displays to be stacked together to make a single giant display, using only a bunch of panels and a controller. This helps in making virtual sets out of displays alone.

Earlier this week, Sony announced new modular displays that are a part of its latest B series. The new panels are being marketed for movie production and feature anti reflective coat ing and are quite bright as well. These displays can top out and operate at around 1,800 nits, which is even higher than the Apple Pro Display XDR’s 1,600 nits. This high brightness also adds another benefit to film studios, as it can offer the set more realism as the brightness helps in creating lighting that makes it seem like the actors are actually in the scene that is in the background.
As per claims from Sony, the new displays are capable of high frame rates and 3D as well. This offers a higher degree of flexibility as well. The company aims on launching the new modular displays by “the summer.” Although, it has yet to announce an official price tag for it. However, considering these are professional grade products, we can assume an average consumer might probably not even considering buying these due to exorbitant prices.
