| Sony BVM-F170 16.5" Full-HD OLED Reference Monitor
Product Code: BVMF170
|Broadcast reference monitor
For reference monitoring applications in the Broadcast industry, Sony's leading edge Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) technology
and signals processing technology ensures absolutely outstanding performance with the BVM-F170.
Super Top Emission technology enhances OLED's intrinsic benefits to
deliver outstanding black performance, a quick response with virtually no motion blur, and a wide colour gamut. An all-new 12-bit output digital signal processing engine provides a nonlinear
cubic conversion colour-management system that delivers precise colour reproduction, stunning picture uniformity, smoother-than-ever gamma performance, and picture quality
Accepts computer signals via HDMI
The BVM-F170 accepts various computer signals input up to 1920 x 1080 through its HDMI connector
|· 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
· 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.
· Multi-format signal support
The BVM-F170 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-F170A can support a variety of 3D signal analyses. The 3D signals* are displayed in 2D
L/R switch display
Horopter check display
Flip H display
* 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-F170 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.
· Panel calibration
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.
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.
