16.5-inch TRIMASTER EL™ reference monitor, with 2nd Gen OLED. Dramatically improved viewing angle for critical picture evaluation in the studio and on-set

TRIMASTER EL™ reference monitor with 2nd Gen OLED panel. Dramatically improved viewing angle for critical picture evaluation in the studio and on-set For professional applications such as colour grading, high-end editing, broadcasting and scientific research, Sony’s leading edge Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) technology and signals processing technology ensures absolutely outstanding performance with the BVM-E171. The colour shift depending on the viewing angle has reduced to less than half compared to the 1st generation 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 monitoring solutions.

  • HDR images support

    With v1.1 update and optional BVML-HE171 HDR licence, the BVM-E171 supports fantastic HDR images. The HDR licence activates EOTF 2.2, 2.4, 2.6 CRT, S-Log3(HDR), S-Log3(Live HDR), S-Log2(HDR), ITU-R BT.2100(HLG), SMPTE ST2084, 2.4(HDR).

  • State-of-the-art product

    Super Top Emission technology enhances OLED’s intrinsic benefits to deliver outstanding black performance, a quick response time with virtually no motion blur, and a wide colour gamut. A 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.

  • Flicker free mode

    The TRIMASTER EL OLED panel’s superb quick response and scan-driving performance deliver stunning picture quality with virtually no motion blur. However, there is a possibility that flicker is just visible especially when a lower frequency signal is displayed (24p, 24PsF, and 50i). To remove visible flicker, the BVM-E171 is equipped with Flicker-free mode.

  • DC operation with DC low power indicator*

    The BVM-E171 can be DC operated and features a DC low power indicator. Due to its lightweight and slim design, the BVM-E171 is ideal for field applications.

    * Requires v1.1 update.

  • ITU-R BT.2020 support for 4K production

    BVM-E171 is surely an HD monitor that conforms to ITU-R BT.709 color space. Responding to an increase of the demand of using an HD monitor in a 4K production, BVM-E171 newly supports ITU-R BT.2020 color space and transfer matrix.

  • Accepts computer signals via HDMI with RGB/YCC full range support*

    The BVM-E171 accepts various computer signals input up to 1920 x 1080 through its HDMI connector. It is also equipped with Digital Cinema 2048 x 1080 signals.
    *Requires v1.1 update.
