Japan Display Inc., a joint venture from Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba, recently showed off some of its newest innovations at a tradeshow in that company's home country. On exhibit was a 3.2" unit with SVGA+ 1.62 million dot resolution, yielding a pixel density of 343ppi, on par with high-end smartphones. It also offers WhiteMagic display technology, originally developed by Sony. WhiteMagic uses white sub-pixels to provide a brighter image for use in bright light, and can also reduce power consumption. A 3.0" touch display with 293ppi resolution was also on show.

Also of note in recent display news is the introduction of a 31" IPS Cinema 4K panel from LG, offering an impressive 99.5% of AdobeRGB (as opposed to the more typical 97%), which supports calibration and offers 10-bit display. The panel also provides a dual color space option, with the ability to split the screen left and right into separate color gamut displays. This would be ideal for a photographer editing photos for both web and print output.

These reports come from Japanese camera site Digital Camera.jp at the Display Innovation 2014 tradeshow, and we'd consider them a pretty strong indication of LCD technology we'll be seeing in upcoming Sony cameras. For more information read Digital Camera.jp's coverage.
