“That its Crystal LED screen will finally be available for purchase by the general public, as it was previously only the domain of movie theaters.”

According to Sony, the impressive display will be sold through “a select group of specially trained and certified Sony dealers.”

The Crystal LED technology Sony  powered micro-LED modules 16 × 18 inches, very similar structure to the LED Samsung Onyx system. It is brighter than OLED, allowing for supernaturally sharp images with realistic colors.

Sony will assemble your desired movie screen in your home, but some sample configurations include 1080p with 18 8×4 foot modules; 16 foot wide 4K resolution (72 modules); 8K 32 × 18 feet (288 modules) and 16K and 63 × 18 feet (576 modules).

  • Accurate color reproduction.
  • Outstanding color gamut: 140% sRGB.
  • High image quality: up to 120p.

  • Spectacular 3D images.
  • Non-standard aspect ratio.
  • Up to 99% black surface area to provide high contrast and maximum resolution.
