The first display in Sony’s lineup offered a screen size of 15.6 inches (about 40 cm). However, larger 3D models were cut off at the edges of the holographic diorama. So Sony has announced a larger and improved Spatial Reality Display.
The ELF-SR2 display is not only larger, but also has an improved vision sensor for facial and eye movement detection.
In addition, Sony has incorporated various technologies to improve picture quality. The Super Resolution algorithm used is said to be based on the image quality data collected from Bravia TVs. This reduces the load on the GPU and allows for finer details.
The 4K display resolution is the same as its predecessor. Because the larger size, Sony points out that the appreciated stereoscopic resolution is slightly lower, but this is palliated with the cited image quality improvements.
A powerful computer is required to operate the ELF-SR2. The Spatial Reality Display needs at least an Intel 5 processor with six cores, a GeForce RTX2070 SUPER, and 16 gigabytes of RAM.
Sony’s Spatial Reality Displays are targeted at people working in areas including architecture, engineering, industrial design, and software and game development. There are also potential applications in the medical field
Sony charges a comparatively high price of 5,000 Euros.
The market launch in the US and Canada is scheduled for May. A date for the worldwide release is not yet known
