Waveform Monitor and
Vector Scope Display
An input signal's waveform and vector scope with an
SDI-embedded 2-channel audio level meter can be displayed
on screen. Both the waveform monitor and vector scope
have various modes, including a zoom function (in an area of
0 to 20 IRE) with the waveform monitor, and a zoom function
(in the central black area) with the vector scope, for adjusting
white balance. The waveform of a specified line can also be

Time code embedded on
SDI signals can be displayed
on screen. Users can select
either LTC or VITC.
Safety Area Markers
The safety area markers can
be selected from 80%, 85%,
88%, 90%, and 93%.
8-ch Audio Level Meter Display
When an SDI interface is
connected, the embedded
audio level can be displayed
on screen with an 8-channel
audio level meter. Channels
1 to 8 or 9 to 16 can be
The PVM-2541A, PVM-1741A, and PVM-741 can control the
aperture level of a video signal, and display images on the
screen with sharpened edges to help camera focus operation.
Further to this, the sharpened edges can be displayed in
user-selectable colors (white, red, green, blue, and yellow) for
more precise focusing. This camera focus function can even be
enhanced when combined with native scan mode.
The PVM-2541A, PVM-1741A, and PVM-741 have an
external remote control capability for input/output signal
selection and adjustment of various items via an Ethernet
(10BASE-T/100BASE-TX) connection. Up to 32 monitors and up
to four control units can be connected via Ethernet connection
and controlled remotely on the network. Also these monitors
support some functions of the BKM-16R – an optional remote
control unit for BVM-E/BVM-F/BVM-L/PVM-L Series monitors –
such as the power on/off switch and the Input Select function.*
* The PVM-2541A, PVM-1741A, and PVM-741 do not support all BKM-16R functions.
The PVM-2541A, PVM-1741A, and PVM-741 monitors employ a
software-based color temperature (white balance) calibration
function, which is called "Monitor_AutoWhiteAdjustment".
* Simulated images
Combined with a PC and commercially available calibration
tools*, this function enables simple adjustment of the
monitor's white balance.
