EL™ broadcast reference monitor with dramatically improved
The PVM-1741A is an all-in-one OLED
picture monitor, delivering unparalleled picture quality with the
performance features and functions found in more expensive
monitors, all contained in a compact, stylish design.PVM-1741A
flexible mount options make the 16.5-inch monitor ideal for desktop
editing, office viewing, studio monitor walls and OB vans. The
colour shift depending on the viewing angle has reduced to less
than half compared to a conventional OLED panel. It allows several
people to evaluate the image with extreme accuracy at the same
time, increasing the monitor’s versatility in top end
Super Top Emission OLED display panel benefits from TRIMASTER
EL™ technology. It offers superb black performance, wide
colour gamut and quick response with virtually no motion blur. By
combining the Sony OLED display panel (Full HD, 10-bit driver) and
Sony’s OLED processing technologies, the PVM-1741A OLED
monitor delivers ground-breaking picture quality.
computer signals via HDMI
The PVM-1741A accepts various computer signals input up to 1920 x
1080 through its HDMI connector.
This product also comes with PrimeSupport – fast, hassle-free
repairs and a helpline offering expert technical advice which gives
you the peace of mind.
· Sony OLED panel with full HD and RGB 10-bit
The PVM-1741A Super Top Emission OLED display panel features full
HD resolution (1920 x 1080) and RBG 10-bit driver to create
life-like and smoother-than-ever gradation from dark to bright
portions of a scene.
· Dramatically improved viewing
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.
· TRIMASTER EL offers highest picture
TRIMASTER EL technology is a design architecture that enables the
highest level of colour accuracy, precision imaging, and
picture-quality consistency. Because the EL (Electro-Luminescence)
layer inherently responds to any electrical current input, it emits
light immediately. This allows excellent quick response
characteristics in fast-motion images. This efficient, blur-free,
fast response time is beneficial across a variety of applications
and scenes, such as sports broadcasting, the monitoring of camera
panning and text scrolling.
· Superb Black Performance
Thanks to Sony OLED display technology, all details in the black
can be easily seen.
· Wide colour gamut
The PVM-1741A provides the colour gamut specifications of the main
broadcast standards: ITU-R BT.709, EBU and SMPTE-C.
· High-purity deep colour
Sony’s Super Top Emission™ technology uses micro-cavity
and colour filters. The micro-cavity structure uses an optical
resonance effect and the colour filters enhance the colour purity
of each RGB colour. The technology also reduces ambient light
reflection, so deep colour reproduction can be achieved without
degradation, even in bright environments.
· Uniformity of image across
The PVM-1741A monitor incorporates an OLED processor to bring out
the full performance of the Sony OLED panels. This OLED processor
offers superb uniformity across the whole screen. At the factory,
the OLED panel uniformity is precisely measured and corrected using
a sophisticated RGB LUT (Look-Up Table) adjustment system.
· Selection of four I/P modes
The PVM-1741A monitor provides four I/P modes so that users can
select the most suitable mode for their purpose:
This mode interpolates images between fields. This is used for
optimum picture quality reproduction, for example, to reduce the
jagged effect on moving pictures.
This mode interpolates images within the field, and delivers
naturally reproduced images and lower video delay. This mode is
available for 1920 x 1080 SDI signal input.
This mode combines lines alternately in odd and even fields,
regardless of picture movements. This is used for PsF (Progressive
Segmented Frame) processing and still image monitoring.
This mode interpolates by repeating each line. This is used for
editing and monitoring fast-moving images and checking line
flicker. The minimum processing time is less than one field (0.5
· Maximum flexibility with lightweight compact
The PVM-1741A incorporates a lightweight, compact metal body. It
supports VESA mounting of 100 mm pitch and an EIA 19-inch standard
rack mount. Although the monitor has its own display stand, an
optional stand SU-561 is available for height and tilt picture
adjustment. These features make the monitor ideal for use in a
variety of applications, such as desktop editing, office viewing,
studio monitor walls, or installing in an OB van.
· Easy-to-use control panel
A rotary-type switch and seven function-assignable buttons allow
users speedy and intuitive operation. Operation buttons with LED
indicators enable error-free operation, even in dark environments.
The LED lights can be switched on and off, as required.
· Waveform and Vector Scope
The combination of the vector scope and waveform monitor functions
allows simple measurement without additional measurement equipment.
The input signal’s waveform with a 2-channel audio level
meter can be displayed on screen. Scaling dataare available for
quick measurement. The waveform can display field or line status. A
zoom function is available between 0 and 20 IRE so that black level
can be adjusted more precisely. The Vector Scope has scaling data
for 75% and 100%. Zoom function is also available for the low
· Input versatility
The PVM-1741A is equipped with built-in standard input interfaces:
2 x 3G/HD/SD-SDI; 1 x HDMI input; 1 x analogue composite.
· Audio level monitoring
When an SDI interface is connected, the embedded audio channelsup
to 16 can be displayed on screen with an 8-channel audio level
· Time code display
A time code superimposed on SDI signals can be displayed on screen.
Users can select either LTC or VITC.
· Automatic adjustment of white
The colour temperature (white balance) of the PVM-1741A can be
automatically adjusted by using a PC software based colour
calibration function together with an external colour probe such

· External remote control
The PVM-1741A has an external remote control capability for
input/output signal selection and adjustment of various items via
Ethernet (10BASE-T/100BASETX) connection. Up to 32 monitors and up
to four control units can be connected via Ethernet connection and
controlled remotely on the network. The PVM-1741A also supports
some (though not all) of the functions of the BKM-16R – an
optional remote control unit for BVM-E/BVM-L/PVM-L Series monitors
