Sony PVM-X1800 18.4-inch 4K HDR TRIMASTER High-Grade Monitor
Color-matched 4K HDR picture monitors with the BVM-HX310 4K master monitor, ideal for various 4K productions
The Sony PVM-X1800 18.4-inch 4K HDR high-grade picture monitor incorporates the Sony specified premium LCD panel and offers 1,000-cd/m2 luminance and color matching with 4K HDR master monitor BVM-HX310, making group monitoring easy on set, in the studio, and as part of an OB van’s wall or 19″ EIA racks for editing, audio mixing, etc.
TRIMASTER realized accurate color reproduction, precise imaging and quality picture consistency
Sony PVM-X1800 TRIMASTER is a design architecture for accurate picture reproduction, precise imaging and quality picture consistency. There are many advantages to the panel control and signal-processing system, such as fast processing, accurate linearizing of input signals with the Optical Electrical Transfer Function, accurate color reproduction, etc.
Dynamic Contrast Drive and Black Detail High/Mid/Low
Dynamic Contrast Drive is a new backlight-driving system that dynamically changes backlight luminance to adapt to the scene of a frame. You can conveniently check the overall balance of highlights and lowlights at a glance. This monitor can perform dynamically at a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio using this drive.
From 12G-SDI and Quad-Link 3G-SDI to HD-SDI, as well as HDMI
The Sony PVM-X1800 can accept 12G-SDI from the latest device, and it can input quad-link 3G-SDI and a single HD-SDI for a traditional device. This input utility uses HDMI, and supports from 640 x 480/60P PC signal to 4096 x 2160/60P 4:2:2 YCBCR 12bit.
Both the waveform monitor and the vector scope can be displayed simultaneously, with scales for either HDR or SDR. You can conveniently check both input signal level and output luminance with the WFM’s HDR scales. The waveform has three different displays: luminance, RGB/YCBCR parade and RGB/YCBCR overlay with gamut error display. The waveform of a specified line can also be displayed.
Unique Quad View display with User 3D LUT
The Sony PVM-X1800 provides a Quad View display with individual settings for EOTF (SDR/HDR), color space, transfer matrix, color temperature, contrast, brightness, SDI/HDMI and RGB/YCBCR, as well as User 3D LUTs for each display view.
New user interface and Channel Select button
The OSD is largely changed, and operating this monitor is quicker and more intuitive. The design of the menu allows you to review and change settings very quickly. The Channel Select button protects an operator from inadvertent setting errors.
Handy features for field operation
DC-24-V operation allows you to operate in the field, regardless of the large 18.4″ screen and the very high 1,000-cd/m2 luminance. The optional protection panel* protects the premium LCD screen from inadvertent shocks. User 3D LUTs and yoke mount are also supported. Dynamic Contrast Drive is very useful for night-scene shooting.
*The optional protection panel cannot be used to protect the screen from the heat of backlights while the monitor is in operation.
Various mounting capabilities
Regardless of the large 18.4-inch screen size, the PVM-X1800 can be installed onto a 19-inch EIA-standard rack for studio and OB-van uses. Yoke mount and VESA mount are also convenient for installing it onto a C stand for field use, or a desktop arm for editing.
Powerful stereo sound with audio muting
The Sony PVM-X1800 incorporates stereo speakers (2 W + 2 W) with audio muting.
