HDR production features
The LMD-A170 v3.0 is a cost-effective yet highly capable entry solution for HD HDR and 4K HDR production.
The monitor is one of the first HD picture monitors to support EOTF of S-Log3(Live HDR)
which allows for seamless integration into Sony HDR Live production workflow.
While also supporting ITU-R BT.2100(HLG), LMD-A170 v3.0 will also easily integrate with Sony camcorders to enable Instant HDR workflow.
SMPTE ST2084, S-Log3, S-Log2 and 2.4(HDR) are also supported for a variety of video productions.

4K production features
The LMD-A170 fulfils the demand for an affordable HD monitor in a 4K system.
The unit supports the ITU-R BT.2020 colour space and accepts one of Quad-link 2SI 3G-SDI signals.
To fully utilise its wide colour gamut,
the monitor offers DCI-P3 and S-GAMUT/S-GAMUT3/S-GAMUT3.cine settings,
with proper EOTFs such as 2.6 gamma, S-Log3 and S-Log2.

Enhanced field application features
The monitor is ideal for field applications, with sync-free side-by-side, false colour and audio muting functions.
You can monitor two pictures without synchronisation.
False colour allows you to check the exposure level of a camera at a glance from a distance.
Audio muting helps you start to shooting quickly.

Graphics applications features
The monitor accepts a computer signal though HDMI. To fully utilise its wide colour gamut, 
the monitor also offers Adobe RGB and sRGB settings in colour space, and D50 preset in colour temperature.

2K format display and Dual-Link HD-SDI mode
This feature offers a cost effective 2K monitoring solution, ideal for OnSet digital cinematography.
In addition, a Dual-link HD-SDI input is available.

SONY LMD-A170 Features:

High Dynamic Range*
Version 3.0 of the LMD-A170 supports EOTFs of ITU-R BT.2100(HLG)**, SMPTE ST2084, S-Log 3, S-Log3(Live HDR), S-Log2 and 2.4(HDR).
When selecting one of the HDR EOTFs, the monitor automatically sets the backlight of its panel to the maximum luminance.
(With its wide colour gamut, the LMD-A170 v3.0 displays colour reproduction that is close to that of Sony master monitors such as BVM-HX310.
This allows LMD-A170 v3.0 to easily and smoothly integrate into HDR production workflows.)
*Supported with V3.0
**Refer to ITU-R BT.2100-2. System gamma only supports 1.2 and it applies to a Y signal.

Wide colour gamut*
Thanks to Premium LCD technology**, Version 2.0 of the monitor supports ITU-R BT.2020, DCI-P3, S-GAMUT/S-GAMUT3/S-GAMUT3.cine, sRGB and Adobe RGB.
* Supported with V2.0
**LMD-A170//C3 SYQ, or later - [LMD-A170//C2 CN2, or later, in China].

Optimised low-latency I/P conversion
The I/P conversion system delivers automatically optimised signal processing according to input signals with low-latency (less than 0.5 field).
This system helps users to edit and monitor for a live production.

Computer input versatility
Multiple computer signals can be received via an HDMI/DVI interface; the resolution range is from 640 x 480 to 1680 x 1050 pixels.
Waveform monitor, vector scope and audio level meter display
An input signal’s waveform and vector scope with an SDI-embedded 2-channel audio level meter can be displayed on screen.
Both the waveform monitor and vector scope have various modes, including a zoom function (in an area of 0 to 20 IRE) with the waveform monitor,
and a zoom function (in the central black area) with the vector scope, for adjusting white balance.
The waveform of a specified line can also be displayed. In conjunction with the Picture & Picture function*,
the waveform monitor and vector scope display can monitor two camera signals.
In addition, an audio level meter can display the embedded audio signal from the SDI or HDMI input.
It can display on screen the ch1 to ch8 or ch9 to ch16.
*Supported with V1.1

In-Monitor Display (IMD) function
With an external remote function via Ethernet, image source names and tally information can be displayed on screen.
LMD-A Series monitors support the TSL system protocol.
The IMD system can display European language text including umlaut and accent marks.

User-friendly operability and user interface
The monitor has a number of additional features, including:
Time Code display (LTC/VITC-supported);
safety area markers,
closed caption display (EIA/CEA-608 and EIA/CEA-708, SDI only),
8-channel audio level meter display,
computer signal input capability via HDMI input and external remote control function.

False colour function*
The monitor can display false colour according to the signal level from a camera.
As the whole picture is changed, it is easy to see levels for over-exposure, under-exposure or appropriate exposure.
You can adjust these levels and turn the scale** of false colour on and off, as required.
* Supported with V2.0
** False color scale itself only supports a 0.45 OETF signal.

Time code function
LTC and VITC time code can be displayed at the top or bottom of the picture.

On screen Tally
The monitor is equipped with a three colours red, green and yellow On-screen Tally function.

Flexible area marker*, Grid Display, two Center Markers and Flip functions
You can set two flexible area markers freely on the screen.
As their line colours and thickness can be changed, these two markers are easily identified.
Grid Display function displays arbitrary multiple vertical and horizontal lines
to help when users check the composition of a picture. In addition to a standard Center Marker 1, Center Marker 2 is also available.
This second marker enables easier checking of the centre portion’s focus.
The Flip function turns the reversed image to a normal view, horizontally or vertically.
* Supported with V2.0

Power-on setting*
Power-on setting allows users to make choice when the monitor starts up; this includes last memory, user preset, and factory preset settings.

Anamorphic image conversion and Active Format Description (AFD) functions*
The monitor’s anamorphic image conversion function** correctly displays horizontally squeezed 3G/HD-SDI signals from an onset camera system.
The signals include two major systems: 16:9 1920 x 1080 (1280 x 720) signals and 17:9 2048 x 1080 signals.
These signals can be appropriately displayed on the monitor’s screen.
The Active Format Description (AFD) function*** also reads the ancillary data flag on an SDI,
and can upconvert the SD image to display automatically on the full HD resolution screen.
This is achieved by adjusting the resolution and aspect ratio.
* Supported with V1.1
** Only 3G/HD-SDI and dual-link HD-SDI are supported.
*** Only SD-SDI signals are supported.
