Dolby is producing an LED backlit LCD display that is said to rival CRT monitors. This is what I find most interesting, though:
Power said the new display is not only a reference monitor, but an emulation device. “Once you’ve used our known grade-1 style reference mode for color-correction decisions, you can press a button and have it emulate your favorite consumer displays,” he said. “We can actually go beyond grade 1 and support P3 color space, so you can start to do work in the suite that you previously would have had to take into a more expensive digital-cinema-projector-equipped facility. We can do that right there on a single display.”
That sounds amazing. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but looks to be in the $35,000-$50,000 range.
