Sony Trimaster EL PVM-2541, PVM-1741: Professional OLED Monitors

Sony Japan: Sony announced two Trimaster EL professional OLED monitors. The 24.5-inch PVM-2541 and the 16.5-inch PVM-1741. Both OLED monitors pack a 10-bit 1920×1080 panel with RGB sub-pixel structures.

Sony uses its Super Top Emission (STE) structure that causes the emitted light to travel toward the front of the OLED display, a more efficient method compared to bottom emission that leads to lower power consumption and longer lifetimes. Viewing angles are excellent at 178/178.

The 24.5-inch PVM-2541 is priced at ¥627,900 (about US$7500) and the 16.5-inch PVM-1741 at ¥417,900 (about $5000). Availability is slated for the second half of 2011.
