Are direct LED Walls really that good?
« on: Wed October 11, 2017, 08:48:39 AM »
Direct LED Walls are since some time with small pixel pitch at the Market from different Manufacturers.

Leyard show if I remember right in 2015 an first 8K Wall.
When Sony show in 2016 for the first time there direct LED Wall CLED the reaction from people saw it was overwhelming.

Other LED Wall presentation from other manufacturer are also show a very good impressive picture but the Sony was better as all people I talk with report to me.

I will see on in few days the Sony LED Wall in the full 8K version.

I try hard to see it with a normally 4K UHD Disc with HDR and 24P but it looks like this is not possible.

So a bit difficult to say when People was overwhelmed by the picture quality was it be because of the Source Material Quality or the Display Quality or both?
I am sure that  8K 120 Frames top top selected Source Material often in slow motion will have a big impact on Picture Quality or say the other way a 4K UHD Disc in HDR 24P will likely looks less good compare the 8K 120Frame Material that Sony runs with the CLED Demo normally.

This have to take into account when comparing the Sony CLED to other Displays or Projectors Picture Quality and so far I think no one did this.
My guess is that both are right.
The CLED will show a better picture than the best Projectors we have today.
But also the 8K 120P Material that was visible at the demos will have an impact on how good this demo likely looks like.

So I am very happy to finally see it with my own eyes and I am sure after I talk with so many people that saw it already that I will love the picture but the real test will be some day to see it with 4K UHD Disc in HDR and Rec. 2020 at 24P as you only this is the right compare.

I will report in about 2 weeks.

SONY C-LED (no longer called cledis) showing digital cinema hdr Billy Lynn 120fps  Blows away any projector specially the Christie Stack even with 3D I take the C-LED, ask them to play that clip if u can.

However it is a 10 bit video image so look for that limitation as compared to a dci file on the Thor. What it may lack in color volume is overcompensated by the insane cr.

So Sony is back to the old/original name of the technology demonstrator at CES 2012, that was called CLED, no hyphen, and CrystalLed written out. Dropping the Integrated System part of the Accronym.

Wolfgang do you have confirmation that its a proper 8K version? Sony has been demonstrating two times 4K, side by side, refering to this as 8K, where as it is only half an 8K video display, missing the top half;-).

Looking forward to your report.
