Sony Introduces Verona

Designed for virtual production, the Crystal LED displays will begin shipping next spring.

Sony Electronics has announced four new Verona Crystal LED displays for virtual-production applications.

The panels feature new Deep Black and Anti-Reflection Surface Technology, delivering deeper black-level expression while reducing contrast loss caused by light from adjacent LED panels and studio-lighting equipment.

Verona achieves a high brightness of 1,500 cd/m2 and wide color gamut covering more than 97 percent of DCI-P3. It also employs LED drivers that enable high refresh rates up to 7,680Hz, reducing scanline artifacts on the camera. Both new models, the ZRD-VP15EB/23EB and ZRD-VP15EM/23EM, are available in P1.56mm and P2.31mm pixel pitch.

Verona features a 1:1 cabinet design that enables quick, simple assembly of any display. The design offers large, easy-grip handles; locating pins for easy alignment, and a lever-type locking mechanism that can be operated without tools. The panels adapt to LED designs that are curved, hanging and stacking, and the frames are strong enough to enable self-stacking screens up to 23' high.

Verona has been designed to work with leading virtual-production LED controllers. The ZRD-VP15EB/23EB works with Brompton Technology’s Tessera SX40, and the ZRD-VP15EM/23EM works with Megapixel’s Helios Processing Platform.

The ZRD-VP15EB also sees a roughly 27-percent power-consumption decrease compared to the ZRD-B15A.

Sony will introduce Verona this month at IBC (Booth 13.1A10 in Hall 13).

The solution will begin shipping in spring 2024.
