16.5-inch Full-HD Reference OLED Monitor
Sony TRIMASTER EL technology combines the ultimate performance of Sony OLED display with the highly sophisticated TRIMASTER technology to provide the highest level of picture performance:
Sony's Super Top Emission™ technology has a micro-cavity structure which incorporates colour filters. The micro-cavity structure uses an optical resonance effect to enhance colour purity and improve light-emission efficiency. In addition, the colour filter of each RGB further enhances the colour purity of emitted light, and reduces ambient light reflection.
High-precision signal processing engine has been developed to fulfil the reference monitor criteria and is optimized to maximize OLED panel performance. This engine incorporates 12-bit output accuracy at each process, and provides both a high quality I/P conversion algorithm and a highly accurate colour management system.
The BVM-E170 monitor can accept almost any SD or HD video format, both analogue and digital, and variable computer signals up to 1920 × 1080. In addition to the standard inputs, four option board slots are offered to configure this monitor according to different user needs.
This monitor is equipped as standard with two 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs, an HDMI (with HDCP) input and a Displayport* for future expansion. In addition, four option ports are available.
* DisplayPort input will be supported from monitor software version 1.1 or later.
The monitor can accept up to four optional video input boards simultaneously. Available formats include analogue, composite, Y/C, components, RGB and digital 3G/HD/SD SDI.
By installing the optional BKM-250TG 3G/HD-SDI input adaptor*, the BVM-E170 can support a variety of 3D signal analyzes. The 3D signals* are displayed in 2D mode.
The colour temperature and white balance of BVM-E and F Series monitors can be automatically adjusted by the Auto White Balance function using specified colour temperature probes, such as the Konica Minolta CA-210, CS-200, DK-Technologies PM5639/06, and X-Rite i1 (Eye-One) Pro.
The BVM-E170 monitor uses a sophisticated I/P conversion technique that keeps artefacts that are often seen in flat panel displays to a minimum such as edge jaggedness, conversion errors, etc.
The BVM-E170 display engine ensures a picture delay that is less than one field.
Every BVM-E170 monitor is carefully calibrated at the factory on an individual basis, providing a high level of accuracy and stability for characteristics such as gamma and uniformity.
Using a colour feedback system, the BVM-E170 monitor achieves the stability required for Broadcast critical monitoring applications.
Faithfully reproduces interlaced signals, emulating CRT monitors.
The unique Picture & Picture function of the BVM-E Series allows simultaneous display of two input signals on the monitor’s screen. The BVM-E Series offers four Picture & Picture modes to provide users with enhanced operational flexibility:
Side by Side, Wipe, Butterfly and Blending
Pixel Zoom Mode
A selected area of the displayed picture can be enlarged on a pixel basis, up to eight times in size both vertically and horizontally.
BVM-E170 master monitor incorporates a Gamut Error Display function that detects irregular signal input.
BVM-E170 master monitor incorporates gamma tables to reproduce images captured using S-LOG Gamma technology. S-LOG gamma is a technique used in Sony’s digital cinematography cameras that allows the full latitude of the camera CCD to be maintained throughout the production chain.
The 2048 Image Slide function of the BVM-E170 allows 2K resolution (2048 x 1080 pixels) images to be mapped, pixel-to-pixel, on the full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) panel without picture degradation.
The HD Frame Capture function of the BVM-F Series allows a picture frame from the 3G-SDI and HD-SDI input to be captured and saved as a picture file on a Memory Stick™ media.
A separate control unit BKM-16R is available for the BVM-E170. It is equipped with a Memory Stick socket enables users to download and save all monitor set-ups such as input channel configuration, control preset adjustments, white balance settings and maintenance parameters.
Multiple monitors can be easily managed by a single control unit BKM-16R via an Ethernet connection.
