I accepted an invitation to go to Sony HQ Japan and have meetings with the engineers to recommend video display enhancement priorities.

Unrelated, but wanted to eliminate the need for another post, here's some new information on the new A9H OLED Master Series, estimated to begin shipping by the end of Q3, will have a new and more powerful video processor. No name for the new upgraded processor at this moment. If all goes as planned I'll be receiving our first mass production A8H series, which will begin shipping earlier, likely no later than the end of April 2020.

I'll post more later along with additional information and tentative launch dates and pricing.

Have fun in Japan and make note of the CDC website for traveling to Japan. :)

Thank you! I just clicked on the CDC link you provided and I'm now considering the MMR vaccination.

Edited, 1/30/20 8am EST, in reading further I don't think I'll need the MMR vaccination as I was born before 1957 and remember well my bouts with measles, and mumps as a child. Here's how the CDC explains it.

* Birth before 1957 provides only presumptive evidence for measles, mumps, and rubella. Before vaccines were available, nearly everyone was infected with measles, mumps, and rubella viruses during childhood. The majority of people born before 1957 are likely to have been infected naturally and therefore are presumed to be protected against measles, mumps, and rubella. Healthcare personnel born before 1957 without laboratory evidence of immunity or disease should consider getting two doses of MMR vaccine.

Great. One less thing to worry about. :)

You should be good then. Just keep a face mask as well as hand sanitizers nearby to help prevent the coronavirus since there are reported cases in Japan and per most news sites, face masks are sold out in the area.
