Sony goofs on world’s first ultra-HD OLED TV
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai suffered an embarrassing moment on a giant technology stage Monday night, introducing the world's first "ultra-HD" TV using organic light-emitting diodes (OLED), only to see the screen go blank as the computer running it had an error.
Hirai stopped mid-speech during his presentation as the screen went blank.
"This revolutionary TV combines the world's largest OLED display with dazzling 4K resolution, including this beautiful ... interface screen," he said, turning to see the screen show a computer error as chuckles rippled through the crowd.
Hirai carried on with his presentation, at one point looking back at the 56-inch display only to see the error continue.
"Excellent," he said.
A Sony staffer rolled the TV away as he continued.
Hirai said the set is a prototype and didn't announce price or availability. Later, he appeared to be good-natured in a reception for journalists.
