17-inch Professional OLED Picture Monitor
The PVM-1741 Super Top Emission OLED display panel features full HD resolution (1920 x 1080) and RBG 10-bit driver to create life-like and smoother-than-ever gradation from dark to bright portions of a scene.
TRIMASTER EL technology is a design architecture that enables the highest level of colour accuracy, precision imaging, and picture-quality consistency. Because the EL (Electro-Luminescence) layer inherently responds to any electrical current input, it emits light immediately. This allows excellent quick response characteristics in fast-motion images. This efficient, blur-free, fast response is beneficial across a variety of applications and scenes, such as sports broadcasting, the monitoring of camera panning and text scrolling.
Thanks to Sony OLED display technology, all details in the black can be easily seen.
Sony OLED provides the colour gamut specifications of the main broadcast standards: ITU-R BT.709, EBU and SMPTE-C.
Sony’s Super Top Emission technology uses micro-cavity and colour filters. The micro-cavity structure uses an optical resonance effect and the colour filters enhance the colour purity of each RGB colour. The technology also reduces ambient light reflection, so deep colour reproduction can be achieved without degradation, even in bright environments.
The PVM-1741 monitor incorporates a newly-developed OLED processor to bring out the full performance of the Sony OLED panels. This OLED processor offers superb uniformity across the whole screen. At the factory, the OLED panel uniformity is precisely measured and corrected using a sophisticated RGB LUT (Look-Up Table) adjustment system.
The PVM-1741 monitor provides four I/P modes so that users can select the most suitable mode for their purpose:
The PVM-1741 incorporates a lightweight, compact metal body. It supports VESA mounting of 100 mm pitch and an EIA 19-inch standard rack mount. Although the monitor has its own display stand, an optional stand SU-561 is available for height and tilt picture adjustment. These features make the monitor ideal for use in a variety of applications, such as desktop editing, office viewing, studio monitor walls, or installing in an OB van.
A rotary-type switch and seven function-assignable buttons allow users speedy and intuitive operation. Operation buttons with LED indicators enable error-free operation, even in dark environments. The LED lights can be switched on and off, as required.
The PVM-1741 is equipped with built-in standard input interfaces: 2 x 3G/HD/SD-SDI; 1 x HDMI input; 1 x analogue composite.
The input signal’s waveform with a 2-channel audio level meter can be displayed on screen. When an SDI interface is connected, the embedded audio level can be displayed on screen with an 8-channel audio level meter.
A time code superimposed on SDI signals can be displayed on screen. Users can select either LTC or VITC.
The PVM-1741 monitor employs a software-based white balance calibration function called AutoWhiteBalance. Combined with a PC and commercially available calibration tool*, this enables simple adjustment of the monitor’s white balance.

The PVM-1741 has an external remote control capability for input/output signal selection and adjustment of various items via Ethernet (10BASE-T/100BASETX) connection. Up to 32 monitors and up to four control units can be connected via Ethernet connection and controlled remotely on the network. The PVM-2541 also supports some (though not all) of the functions of the BKM-16R – an optional remote control unit for BVM-E/BVM-L/PVM-L Series monitors – such as power on/off switch and Input Select function.
