OLED: Potential for Dominance

Alec Shapiro, Sony Professional Solutions of America senior vice president via Entertainment Technology Center:

Sony’s NAB booth is dominated with new camcorders, 3D gear, and advances in 4K and HDCAM-SR recording options but it is the thinnest of products, reference-grade OLED monitors, that Alec Shapiro, Sony Professional Solutions of America senior vice president, points to as the biggest game changer today. And for good reason: it’s the first flat-panel monitor that can truly lay claim to the CRT monitor crown for reference work.

The newly-announced Trimaster EL professional OLED monitors, though outrageously expensive, meet the front screen performance of CRT monitors according to Shapiro. I agree that an OLED future is inevitable but it might take a long time.
