Sony OLED Display Technology


Lou Gershenson, Sony Regional Sales Mgr.

Gary Mandle, Sony Displays National Product Mgr.


This past Spring Sony introduced their first production models of LCD broadcast displays utilizing 

OLED (organic light emitting diode) technology.  OLED allows for various improvements in image 

quality, most notably black levels that are truly black.  While this technology has been in 

development throughout the display industry for some time, it has taken a while to create displays 

which meet the expectations of professional users.  Sony will discuss and demo the technology.



The NCTA is on Mass Ave., near New Jersey Ave., about two blocks from Union Station (Metro Red 

Line).  The in-building garage is not usable because it closes at 7pm, however there is street 

parking nearby (check signs for meter hours).  There is also garage parking at Union Station and may 

be available at other area garages.
