The e-sports industry is currently attracting attention around the world and growing rapidly.
In Japan, the e-sports industry is also gaining popularity, especially among young people, and this has led to the introduction of a variety of gaming devices and the intensification of the market.
The Sony Group has announced the establishment of a new gaming brand, INZONE.
As its first product, the " INZONE M9 " gaming monitor is now on sale!
Equipped with the PS5 integration function! High-end "INZONE M9" combines high image quality and high output
Since the launch of "PlayStation 5 (PS5 )", which can sustain up to 120Hz output at 4k resolution, the demand for high-resolution and high-refresh rate gaming monitors that can support the PlayStation 5 has been rapidly increasing.
The new " INZONE M9 " is a high-end gaming monitor with high specifications that meet such demand, while at the same time incorporating the technologies that only Sony, which has developed numerous TVs and audio devices, can offer.
In addition, the monitor is equipped with the PS5 integration function!
The unique design and simple black and white coloring are a perfect match for the PS5!
In this article, we will introduce the charm of " INZONE M9 "!
Direct LED Partial Drive
The INZONE M9 is equipped with the " direct-type LED partial drive" technology cultivated in the BRAVIA series, which delivers a finely detailed depiction of light and dark scenes.
Even in dark scenes, depth and subtle details are beautifully expressed.
High resolution and high refresh rate
While maintaining a high refresh rate of 144Hz at 4K resolution ( 3840 × 2160), the response time (GTG) is 1ms.
The PS5 also supports 4K 120Hz display over HDMI for the ultimate immersive experience.
1.07 Billion Color Reproduction
With a DCI-P3 color reproduction rate of over 95%, the PS5 can reproduce the beautiful world of games in vivid colors.
The 1.07 billion-color display also renders gradations smoothly.
Recommended for those who want to enjoy RPGs and adventure games in high quality!
Adjustable Tripod Stand
A tripod-type stand is adopted to allow wider use of the area around the monitor.
The height can be adjusted (70mm) and the tilt function (20 degrees) can be used to adjust the stand to a comfortable position.
The simple black and white design is reminiscent of the PS5 and can be placed in any room without concern for the interior design.
Rear lighting that glows in 13 different colors
INZONE M9 can light up the back of the monitor.
You can freely choose your favorite color from 13 colors, and of course, you can turn off the light when you don't want it to shine.
It is nice to be able to adjust the color to your mood or to fit in with the room.
Well-equipped connection terminals
The INZONE M9 supports HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort 1.4, USB-C (DP Alternate mode compatible), and other connection terminals.
It helps that you don't have to worry about the number of connectivity ports or standards!
PS5 integration function
Various display settings can be configured on the " INZONE Hub " PC software.
The display can automatically change the picture and sound quality settings for each game title, and it is equipped with a linkage function suitable for playing games on the PS5.
In addition, the content-linked picture quality mode automatically switches to " Game 1 mode," which is ideal for games, when the PS5 is connected, and to " Cinema mode " when enjoying movies on the PS5 console.
The system switches between modes according to the video quality, so there is no need to switch picture quality modes.
