The BVM-L231 reference LCD monitor supersedes the market leading BVM-A series CRT models, heralding in a new era in broadcast post-production, D-Cinema production, evaluation and mastering. A premium Sony technology - TRIMASTER - is used in the BVM-L231 to produce an LCD monitor fully justifying the Reference designation. In developing TRIMASTER, the technology had to deliver accurate colour reproduction, precision imaging and absolute picture consistency. Sony has achieved this through 3 key devices: a high-grade customised LCD Panel, a precision High-Purity LED Backlight system and a sophisticated Display Engine.
The high-grade customised LCD panel incorporates a 10-bit driver for smooth greyscale and colour transitions, and possesses a high frame rate allowing black-frame insertion for reduced motion blur.
The Precision Backlight system uses High Purity LEDs - delivering wide reference-standard colour space, uniformity control and colour stability through the auto white-balance circuitry.
The display engine uses 2 state-of-the-art ICs employing accurate 12-bit output processing - one dedicated to I/P conversion, producing the lowest possible artefact count, and one focussed on the highly accurate colour management system, delivering stability, consistency and precise standards emulation. The BVM-L231 also benefits from picture and picture and blend modes plus a pixel zoom function for greater user flexibility.The BVM-L231 accepts all video formats up to 3G SDI with the optional BKM-250TG input board. It is also equipped with HDMI interface as standard.
Finally, a new backlight scanning system is integrated to improve the black level reproduction when Black Frame insertion mode is selected. With its exceptional performance and the advantages of LCD, the BVM-L231 is a deserving successor to CRT broadcast reference monitors.
