The 24" PVM-X2400 and the 18.4" PVM-X1800 were unveiled last month at the BSC Expo.
The monitors provide high picture quality and accurate color reproduction thanks to Sony’s specified and dedicated panels, which offer ultra-high definition with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and an all-white luminance of 1000 cd/m2. For optimum film production, their wide color gamut matches that of the BVM-HX310 Trimaster HX master monitor. This means both monitors offer accurate color reproduction and precise grayscale, giving filmmakers a reliable tool to help make critical imaging decisions and perform faithful color matching throughout the workflow. With their compact size, the monitors are aimed to expand footprints in 4K HDR production, including applications such as on-set monitoring, non-linear video editing, studio wall monitoring, and rack-mount monitoring in OB trucks or machine rooms.
The monitors feature new Black Detail High/Mid/Low, which helps maintain accurate color reproduction by reducing the brightness of the backlight to reproduce the correct colors and gradations in low-luminance areas. Another new function, Dynamic Contrast Drive, dynamically changes backlight luminance to adapt to each scene or frame when transferring images from PVM-X2400/X1800 to existing Sony OLED monitors. This functionality allows filmmakers to check the highlight and low-light balance of the contents with both bright and dark scenes.
Other key features include 4K/HD scopes with HDR scales that are Waveform/Vector, Quad View display and User 3D LUT functionality, and 12G/6G/3G/HD-SDI with auto configuration.
The PVM-X2400 and the PVM-X1800 will be available in the U.S. in July.
