Sony launches next-generation 4K HDR picture monitors with TRIMASTER at BSC 2020
Sony will launch PVM-X2400 (24’’) and the PVM-X1800 (18.4’’), high-grade picture monitors from its TRIMASTER range at this year’s BSC 2020. The PVM-X2400 (24’’) and the PVM-X1800 (18.4’’) monitors provide high picture quality and accurate color reproduction thanks to Sony’s specified and dedicated panels, which offer ultra-high definition with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and an impressive brightness of all-white luminance of 1000 cd/m2. For optimum film production, their wide color gamut matches the industry-leading BVM-HX310 TRIMASTER HX master monitor.
The monitors feature new Black Detail High/Mid/Low, which helps maintain accurate color reproduction by reducing the brightness of the backlight in three steps to reproduce the correct colors and gradations in low-luminance areas. Another new function, Dynamic Contrast Drive, dynamically changes backlight luminance to adapt to each scene or frame when transferring images from PVM-X2400/X1800 to existing Sony OLED monitors. This functionality allows filmmakers to check the highlight and low light balance of the contents with both bright and dark scenes.
With its compact size and high portability, the monitors are aimed to expand footprints in 4K HDR production including versatile applications such as on-set monitoring, non-linear video editing, studio wall monitoring, rack-mount monitoring of OB trucks or machine rooms. Sony PVM-X2400 (24’’) and the PVM-X1800 (18.4’’), high-grade picture monitors from its TRIMASTER range will be available in July 2020.
