Sony's “A” Series TRIMASTER EL OLED professional monitors for TV productions and broadcasting are an update to their older BVM-F series. The A Series use a new panel design that has a wider viewing angle and a reduced color shift (by half, compared to previous models). The displays support HDMI, DisplayPort, 3G-SDI, SD-SDI and HD-SDI.
The 24.5" BVM-F250A and the 16.5" BVM-F170A will ship by May 2013.
Oxygen DCT's FM-072SCO is a "next-generation" premium quality OLED field production monitor for studio, outside broadcast, satellite news, engineering and field production. The display is a 7.7" AMOLED panel featuring 1280x800 resolution. We assume that the panel is the same one used in Samsung's Galaxy Tab 7.7 (so it's probably a Super AMOLED Plus panel). Inputs include two 3G/HD/SD-SDI and HDMI for up to 1080 50p and 60p signals and both composite, YUV analogue inputs.
The FM-072SCO will be sold in the UK for £1721 - and the company says it's "highly competitively".
The PVM-741 is a professional monitor with a 7.4" 960x540 OLED display, a direct replacement of the PVM-740. The monitor features a 10-bit panel driver, multi-format signal interfaces with two 3G/HD/SD-SDI input capability, 3G-SDI interface, 8-channel audio level meter, HDMI and more.
The PVM-741 will be released in October 2012, you can find more info over at Sony's site.
The DP7-PRO OLED is a professional on-camera monitor that features a 7.7" 1280x800 Super AMOLED Plus panel. This is the same panel used in Samsung's Galaxy Tab 7.7.

Sony's BVM-F250 and F170 TriMaster EL are professional Full-HD OLED monitors sized 24.5" and 16.5". The monitors offer hyper-accurate color reproduction and 'perfect' image quality without motion blur due to the OLED's fast response time. The display support HDMI, DisplayPort, 3G-SDI, SD-SDI and HD-SDI.
The BVM-F series will launch in November 2011 in Japan. The 24.5" will cost 1.5 million yen (about $20,000) and the 16.5" will cost 945,000 yen (about $12,000). We're not sure whether these will replace the BVM-E270/E170 range, as the F series is a bit cheaper than the E series...
