Sony’s four win major film industry award

Four Sony employees involved in the development of the company’s BVM-E Series Professional OLED Master Monitor have been awarded Scientific and Technical Awards by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. 

The awards – scheduled to be presented at a ceremony in Beverly Hills, California, on February 7 2015  – will go to Ichiro Tsutsui, Masahiro Take, Mitsuyasu Tamura and Mitsuru Asano of the Visual Presentation Solutions Division.

The OLED master monitor was launched in May 2011 and is based on unique technologies that reproduce black faithfully with a 1:1,000,000 contrast rate, meaning there is considerably less afterimage and image shakiness, as well as a better response rate and accurate colour reproduction.

Sony says the specifically designed and patented processor improves the performance of the OLED panel to the level and specifications of a master monitor, ensuring image uniformity and preventing “aging”, thus ensuring long-term reliability of the monitor. The technology also increases the colour reproduction fidelity with a micro-cavity structure that incorporates colour filters.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences highlighted the award saying: “These precise, wide-gamut monitors allow creative image decisions to be made on set with confidence that the desired images can be accurately reproduced in post-production.”
