Sony BVM-F170 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 consistency.
Accepts computer signals via HDMI
Sony BVM-F170 accepts various computer signals input up to 1920 x 1080 through its HDMI connector
Superb picture performance
Sony BVM-F170 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 Sony 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 mode.
• Difference display
• Checkerboard display
• 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 Sony 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
Sony BVM-F170 display engine ensures a picture delay that is less than one field.
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.
