Features of BVM-F170A
· Superb picture performance
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:
Accurate Black Reproduction
High purity and accurate colour reproduction
Quick response time with virtually no motion blur
Very high contrast ratio

· Dramatically improved viewing angle
The colour shift depending on viewing angle has reduced to less than half (less than 50%) compared to a conventional OLED panel. Viewing angle is no longer an issue in practical usage, where three people in front of the monitor can evaluate at the same time across a 45 degrees angle.

· 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 Sony 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.

· Auto White Balance
The colour temperature and white balance of BVM “A” Series monitors can be automatically adjusted by the Auto White Balance function using specified colour temperature probes, such as:
Konica Minolta: CA-210, CA-310, CS-200,
DK-Technologies: PM5639/06,
X-Rite: i1 (Eye-One) Pro and i1Pro2.
Photo Research: PR-655, PR-670
Klein: K-10
Jeti: Specbos 1211

· Built-in colour sensor for Auto White adjustment
The BVM-F170A is equipped with a built-in colour sensor, which allows users to calibrate the monitor’s colour temperature (white balance) as needed without anexternal probe. Calibration performance is minimally affected by ambient light. This function ensures colour and gamma consistency, and reduces user maintenance tasks.

· High quality I/P conversion technology
The BVM-F170A 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-F170A display engine ensures a picture delay that is less than one field.

· Panel calibration
Every BVM-F170A 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-F170A monitor achieves the stability required for broadcast critical monitoring applications.

· Interlaced display mode
Faithfully reproduces interlaced signals, emulating CRT monitors.

· Picture & Picture mode
The unique Picture & Picture function of the BVM-F170A allows simultaneous display of two input signals side by side on the monitor’s screen. This function is extremely convenient for making instant adjustments to two input sources.

· 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.

· Scan Switch
The Scan Switch function allows switching between under scan (-3%), normal scan (0%), and over scan (5%).

· Native Scan (pixel-to-pixel display)
The Native Scan function is a unique display mode that reproduces images without changing the input signal’s pixel count.

· HD Frame Capture mode
The HD Frame Capture function of the BVM 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. This picture file can be used as a reference for various purposes, for example, as for picture-tone adjustments between past images and for camera-framing adjustments.
