Sony Electronics said today it’s expanding its already extensive lineup of HDR professional displays for commercial use cases with the launch of its EZ20L series. The professional displays are geared towards applications including corporate, education and retail, and are designed to complement the recently announced Sony BZ-L series displays, with sizes ranging from 43-inches to 75-inches.


In a statement, Sony’s vice president of professional display solutions Rich Ventura said the new displays are in response to customer demand for a more accessible and budget-friendly professional display that’s optimized for the above applications. “With the addition of the essential EZ20L series, our complete range of options now supports the exacting requirements of various businesses and spaces and takes advantage of the quality and feature set inherent to Sony's professional displays,” Ventura said.

The Sony EZ20L displays become the new introductory offering in the company’s professional display portfolio, but despite being more affordable they still boast professional features including simplified pro-settings for streamlined setup and maintenance. They also support RS-232C and standard IP control, 16/7 operation and are rated at 350 nits brightness.

There are five models in the series, with 43-, 50-, 55-, 65- and 75-inch sizes to choose from. Each of them comes pre-installed with the Bravia signage application and offers administrative functionality to switch off inputs. Other features include built-in mirroring from mobile devices, a slim bezel, flexible installation, wide viewing angles and the powerful 4K Processor X1. Content upscaling is handled by the X-Reality Pro engine, and there are sustainability features such as its use of recycled plastic materials, environmentally friendly packaging and a power-saving mode.

Sony said the smallest two displays will go on sale in Europe in December, with the three larger sizes to follow in January 2024. Each display will come with a 3-year PrimeSupport warranty as standard.

The new models sit below Sony’s recently announced BZ50L, BZ40L, BZ35L and BZ30L series professional displays, which encompass a lineup of 16 full-featured 4K HDR models. The BZ-L displays represent a step up from the EZ20L models, with common benefits such as high quality images, wide viewing angles, a more powerful chipset and various professional features.

They also offer differentiators such as the BZ40L series display’s Deep Black Non-Glare Coating that enables high haze and low reflection while maintaining deep blacks and high contrast, Sony said.
