NEC has just announced its latest "system-on-glass" LCD for broadcast and other video gear, taking technology that had been previously relegated to the PDA/GPS domain to a bigger level. This new screen is loaded up with a 960 x 540 resolution, 350:1 contrast ratio, 350 candelas per square meter of brightness, and measures 3.0 x 1.7 inches. It'll be demoed at the International Broadcasting Equipment Exhibition 2006 (that's Inter BEE for those in the know), November 15 - 17 at Makuhari Messe in Mihama-ku, Chiba Prefecture in Japan. If you show up to Inter BEE in the yellow and black suit that we saw in that 1994 Blind Melon video, maybe you can convince NEC to get you a deal on a new camera with one of these displays.
