Sony Introduces 4K HDR Video Monitors

Sony has debuted a new set of Trimaster high-grade video monitors in both 24 and 18.4 inch models.  

Sony said both monitors — the PVM-X2400 (24-inches) and the PVM-X1800 (18.4-inches) — provide accurate color reproduction with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and a brightness of all-white luminance of 1000 cd/m2.

For optimum film production, their wide color gamut matches the BVM-HX310 Trimaster HX master monitor. This means both monitors offer accurate color reproduction and precise greyscale, offering filmmakers a reliable tool to help make critical imaging decisions and faithful color matching throughout the workflow.

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.

The monitors also 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 the check of the highlight and low light balance of the contents with both bright and dark scenes.

These new monitors will be available in July, 2020.
