On sale in Japan starting November 1st, the Sony TRIMASTER features a 4K2K resolution, RGB LED backlighting and more.
Sony’s 56” TRIMASTER is certainly positioned to take the wind out of the sails of Toshiba’s Cell REGZA. Rather than attempt to offer a superior slew of consumer options, Sony has concentrated strictly on the picture and is aiming towards businesses that require precise image reproduction.
Though the name could certainly use a bit of work, Sony says the moniker was assigned because of the trio of factors decided to be most important in making the display: “Exact Color”, “Accurate Picture”, and “Reliability”.
The TRIMASTER also features three individual display modes. The first is of course the standard 4096 x 3840 full screen display mode. The second, as we’ve seen with 4K2K televisions in the past, is a Quad View mode, which allows up to four Full HD signals to be displayed simultaneously. The final viewing mode is a zoom mode, which allows standard 1080p signals to be blown up to fill the whole screen.
There’s no word yet on a US date, but we can expect to hear more as Japan’s CEATEC expo continues.
