Sony’s Premierpro™ 18-Inch And 23-Inch Flat Panel Displays: Putting The `Pro’ In Productivity


Raising the productivity bar one more notch, Sony’s first 23-inch wide-aspect ratio SDM-P232W/B and thin-bezel 18-inch SDM-P82/B flat panel displays from its new PREMIERPRO™ series are designed to optimize viewable screen space for anyone who needs more screen real estate.

Maximizing workflow and facilitating multi-tasking, the displays meet the specific needs of financial, graphic and manufacturing industry professionals by enabling users to view two pages, side-by-side. The 23-inch viewable image size, 16×10 wide-aspect ratio P232W/B flat panel display allows multiple pages in actual size or multiple application windows from a presentation, report, spreadsheet or design program to be displayed simultaneously on one screen. The 18-inch P82/B display’s thin bezel allows for easy side-by-side mounting of multiple display screens resulting in a comfortable, uninterrupted view of all information. “Spending more than 40 hours a week tethered to the computer screen easily puts a strain not only on the eyes, but on productivity,” said Stan Glasgow, Sony Electronics’ vice president of display marketing. “Sony’s new flat panel displays challenge the screen limitations of other professional displays by empowering you to view exactly what you need, while leaving plenty of desk space for more than just your coffee cup.”


More Than Meets the Eye

Sony’s exclusive energy-saving Eco Mode function, offered by both display models, allows users to increase the built-in energy consumption savings found with LCDs up to an additional 20 percent at the touch of a button.

Thanks to Sony’s Advanced Digital FlexRes™ chip set, Auto ImageSet™ feature and rich color processing technology, screen images are bright and colorful. Additionally, TFT Active matrix LCD technology combined with anti-glare coating provides clear, flicker-free images that reduce eyestrain.

The P232W/B and P82/B displays are compatible with both PC and Macintosh® platforms and feature dual inputs allowing a central display to serve multiple desktops. The P232W/B and P82/B displays each feature digital as well as analog inputs to enhance image quality and provide the assurance of future-proofed functionality. Both flat panel displays also feature an integrated internal power supply and cable management system contributing to a clutter-free work area.

Pricing and Availability

The P232W/B and P82/B flat panel displays will be available in September for about $3,000 and $1,200, respectively. More information and specifications are available at
