Display of the Year 2019
Sony's Crystal LED display system has been recognised with a "Display of the Year" award at the Display Industry Awards (DIA) which are organised annually by the Society for Information Display (SID) under three categories: Display of the Year, Display Application of the Year and Display Component of the Year.
The system is currently used in professional applications across the world and features a modular configuration that enables the Crystal LED display to accommodate virtually any size or aspect ratio.
DIA winners were selected by a panel of experts who evaluate nominees for their degree of technical innovation and commercial significance, in addition to their potential for a positive social impact.
Speaking at the ceremony, Wei Chen, SID Display Industry Awards Committee Chairman, said:
