TORONTO, Ontario -- Sony of Canada Ltd., Canada's leading electronic and computer products solutions provider for consumers and business, today announced that it has expanded its family of products to include a full line of personal displays (IT monitors) and public displays (LCD (liquid crystal display) and Plasma models).
"Our heritage is in display and in developing products that produce extremely high levels of image quality and resolution, from consumer High-Definition televisions to top-of-the-line digital projectors," said Raj Rawana, Vice President, Marketing & Sales, Broadcast Communication Solutions Group, Sony of Canada Ltd. "The resources we've dedicated to our display group should benefit our professional customers as they continue to move into multi-format and high-definition workflows."
New flat-panel LCD and Plasma displays join Sony's portfolio of LCD business projectors, LUMA™ LCD professional monitors, BVM-A Series CRT monitors and SXRD™ 4K large venue projectors. The result is a wide variety of solutions designed to meet nearly any type of presentation requirement for professionals in markets encompassing broadcasting, healthcare, houses-of-worship, government and education, among others.
"We offer personal displays that provide the flexibility and performance needed for use as a non-linear editing workstation GUI, a back-office PC, or for automation systems," said Mr. Rawana. "Our public displays are designed for digital signage applications in retail spaces, hospitality environments, sports arenas, entertainment venues, medical applications and even high-altitude installations. With the addition of HD resolution, the signage potential becomes even more dynamic."
Sony's presence in the large-venue market has also been strengthened by the continued acceptance of its SXRD 4K projection technology, which offers more than four times the resolution of current high-definition home theater systems.
Already gaining traction in the digital cinema industry, the 4K technology is also making in-roads as a display medium for universities, medical applications, lecture halls, and research facilities to conduct educational discussions, analytical viewings, scientific visualization and flight simulation.
"Our goal is not only to sell products," said Mr. Rawana, "but to also follow-up each sale with comprehensive service and support. We are well-equipped to do more than just meet and respond to market needs. Now we can anticipate needs and deliver solutions our customers really want."
