Professional video monitor.
Hide thumbs



The BVM-F250A is 25-inch Professional Video Monitor,
and the BVM-F170A is 16.5-inch Professional Video
These are suitable for television stations or video
production houses, where precise image reproduction is
The monitor features OLED panel and "TRIMASTER
which is a new technology developed for three elements,
"accurate color reproduction", "precision imaging" and
"quality picture consistency," that are in demand for
professional use. "TRIMASTER" decreases the viewing
difference that occurs due to the individuality of each
panel. Also, the monitor realizes the high picture quality
and high-trust required for the master monitor by the color
management system with its wide color gamut device,
high-resolution/precise gradation display, highly accurate
signal processing and panel correction function.
1) TRIMASTER is a trademark of Sony Corporation.
Advantages of OLED panel technology
The OLED panel makes use of an organic material, which
emits light when an electric current is applied. Being self-
emitting, the strength of luminescence can be controlled by
the amount of electric current. This brings about the
following three features:
Quick motion picture response:
The luminescent state of the OLED panel can be changed
instantaneously by changing the current flow in the organic
material. This enables a quick motion picture response and
production of images with minimal blurring and ghosting.
Furthermore, performance for shooting on location is not
influenced by changes in environmental temperature.
High contrast and wide dynamic range:
The OLED panel does not emit light when black signal is
applied to the monitor, enabling a pure black screen to be
displayed. Furthermore, thanks to a wide dynamic range
the panel impressively displays brilliance and clarity of
various sparkling images, such as stars in a night sky
twinkling, night illuminations winking or glass glittering,
Rich color reproduction:
An OLED panel's self-luminescence also allows for great
color reproduction across the entire spectrum in practically
any shade or brightness.
Sony's Super Top Emission
The 25-type (BVM-F250A) or 16.5-type (BVM-F170A)
full HD (1920 × 1080) OLED panel features Sony's Super
Top Emission structure. Unlike the conventional bottom
OLED panel
emission structure of TFT, Sony's OLED panel can
reproduce a crisper image due to high brightness.
Furthermore, a unique microcavity structure makes RGB
primary colors purer and deeper by utilizing light
resonance effects that magnify optimum light wave lengths
and diminish undesired light wave lengths.
The panel's 10-bit driver enables smooth gradation of color
2) "Super Top Emission" is a trademark that represents the OLED
technology of Sony Corporation.
12-bit precision display engine for professional
The panel is equipped with a unique signal process engine
developed for the professional use monitor. This engine
incorporates 12-bit output accuracy at each process, and
provides a high-quality I/P conversion algorithm, scaling
processing, panel driving and a highly accurate color
management system.
Multi color space
The Sony's unique OLED panel with a wide color gamut
and color management system which uses the unique 3D
LUT (Look Up Table) reproduces the color space that
complies with the broadcast standard ITU-R BT.709, EBU
and SMPTE-C accurately. A wider color space
digital cinema reproductions.
3) The RGB chromaticity of SMPTE RP 431-2 is not covered in full.
High-quality I/P conversion processing
A high-quality picture near the original one, in which
jagged lines and conversion errors are decreased by
detecting the feature of the picture inside the subdivided
block and processing properly, is reproduced.
The signal delay is decreased by judging the animation or
still picture from the past video signal.
Interlace display mode
The interlace signal is displayed as the interlace picture by
inserting the black line without I/P conversion processing.
A picture faithful to the original signal and with the same
feel as a CRT is gained.
For setting the display, see "Selecting Display Mode" on
page 88.
Available to a multi signal format
The monitor supports various input signals such as 720 ×
576/50i to 1920 × 1080/50P, 60P and variable computer
signals up to 1920 × 1080. The 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs,
and DisplayPort
inputs, and four option ports are equipped for the standard
interface. If you install optional input adaptors, the monitor
expands inputs of 3G-SDI, HD-SDI or SD-SDI, and
supports Dual-link HD-SDI, RGB, YPbPr, Y/C, and
composite signal inputs.
