Crystal LED (CLED) refers to a manufacturing technology of screens. It was invented by Sony and revealed at CES 2012.

Overview[edit]

This technology makes use of pixels mounted on each segment RGB of the display, such that each pixel is illuminated independently. This makes it the first "true" LED display.[1]

History[edit]

2012[edit]

Sony unveiled Crystal LED display technology in the CES 2012.[2][3]

The following year, the company was deciding between CLED and OLED, and did not display CLED at the 2013 CES, but produced an OLED instead.[4]

2017[edit]

At CES 2017 Sony showcased the CLEDIS ™ (Crystal LED Integrated Structure) with a Crystal LED video wall approximately 32 by 9 feet with a resolution of 8000 x 2000 pixel. According to Sony it is composed of single display modules measuring 17 7/8" (463.6mm) by 15 7/8" (403.2mm) each. The individual modules were not visible to the human eye. Due to the modular structure of the system theoretically any resolution and size could be possible according to a Sony representative.
