As a 30-year veteran of the film and video business, I know my way around professional technology and equipment. I can attest to the importance of having a trusty monitor, which is why I exclusively use Sony OLED monitors for my work behind-the-scenes on a number of high-profile television shows and feature films.

I have a great appreciation for Sony OLED monitors, and in particular the top-of-the-line Sony 25-inch BVM-E250 reference monitor, which I have used on set for TV shows like Royal Pains and White Collar and feature films including Insurgent and The Wolf of Wall Street.

The large Sony monitor features true blacks and vivid whites, and it is resistant to optical flare caused by less than optimal viewing environments, a common problem in film-style production. The accurate, vibrant color reproduction of the Sony OLED monitors, combined with their absolute stability in greyscale reproduction, has given me so much confidence and trust that I now use two of them mounted side-by-side on my DIT cart, something I never would have done with old-style CRT or LCD monitors.

The high picture quality of the Sony OLED monitors allows me to work more efficiently, and save my clients time and money. Now that I’ve embraced and mastered the use of the Sony OLED reference monitors, I can’t imagine ever using anything else.
