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:
Super Top Emission™ technology
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.
Ultimate Display Engine
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.
Multi-format signal support
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.
Versatile video inputs
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.
Four Slots for Optional Video Input Decoders
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.
3D signal analyzing functions (3D signal input, 2D display)
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.
* Requires the BKM-250TG 3G-SDI input adaptor (serial number 7200001 or later). 3D signals are not displayed in stereoscopic view.
Auto White Balance
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.
High Quality I/P Conversion Technology
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.
Low video delay
The BVM-F170 display engine ensures a picture delay that is less than one field.
Every BVM-F170 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.
Colour Feedback System
Using a colour feedback system, the BVM-F170 monitor achieves the stability required for Broadcast critical monitoring applications.
Interlaced Display Mode
Faithfully reproduces interlaced signals, emulating CRT monitors.
Picture & Picture mode
Two images can be displayed Side by Side to provide users with enhanced operational flexibility.
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.
HD Frame Capture Mode
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.
Separate Control unit with memory stick slot
A separate control unit BKM-16R is available for the BVM-F170. 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.
Centralised Monitor-Wall Control
Multiple monitors can be easily managed by a single control unit BKM-16R via an Ethernet connection.
