HDR production features
The LMD-A220 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-A220 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-A220 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.
The monitor also offers Adobe RGB and sRGB settings in colour space, and D50 preset in colour temperature.

Latest camera-linkage functions
Includes camera and lens metadata display*
and a Picture and Picture function with side by side, wipe, blending, difference and auto input switching.
Ideal for OnSet and live production monitoring.
*Lens metadata is supported by F65, PMW-F55, PMW-F5, PXW-FS7M2 and PXW-FS7 as well as equipment capable of SMPTE RDD18.

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-A220 Features:

High Dynamic Range*
Version 3.0 of the LMD-A220 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.
*Supported with V3.0
**Refer to ITU-R BT.2100-2. System gamma only supports 1.2 and it applies to a Y signal.

Video input versatility
The LMD-A220 monitor is equipped with built-in standard input interfaces: 3G/HD/SD-SDI (x2), HDMI (HDCP) input (x1) and composite (x1).

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.

In-Monitor Display (IMD) function
With an external remote function via Ethernet, image source names and tally information can be displayed on screen.

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.

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.

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

Yoke-mount and Wall-mount capability

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

Camera focus function
The LMD-A220 monitor can control the aperture level of a video signal,
and display images on the screen with sharpened edges to help camera focus operation.
Further to this, the sharpened edges can be displayed in user-selectable colours (white, red, green, blue, and yellow) for more precise focusing.

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

Network control function
The LMD-A220 has the network control function that allows you to upgrade the monitor software by Ethernet very easily.
The network capability will also be utilised for a central control of multiple units in a system environment.

Enhanced Picture & Picture function*
The unique Picture & Picture function of the LMD-A220 allows simultaneous display of two input signals on the monitor’s screen.
This function helps with colour adjustment and setting of camera frames.
Various modes are available: side by side, wipe, blending, difference and auto input switching.
This function works when synchronous SDI signals are input.
Sync-free side by side with low latency allows you to monitor two signals without synchronisation.
You can configure each picture as HD or SD with different frame rates, taking them from both SDI and HDMI.
This function works with the false colour function, camera focus function and metadata on the main picture of the two pictures.
* Supported with V2.0

Auto white adjustment*
The LMD-A220 monitor employs a software-based colour temperature (white balance) calibration function, which is called Monitor_AutoWhiteAdjustment.
Combined with a PC and commercially available calibration tools*, this function enables simple adjustment of the monitor’s white balance.
* The Konica Minolta CA-210/CA-310/CS-200, DK-Technologies PM5639/06, X-Rite i1 Pro/i1 Pro2, Photo Research PR-655/670, Klein K-10, and JETI specbos 1211.
*Supported with V1.1

Camera/lens metadata display function and on-screen tally*
The LMD-A220 monitor can display the camera and lens metadata** set of a camera system,
according to the SMPTE RDD18*** document for Acquisition Metadata Sets for Video Camera Parameters.
Further to this, these monitors also support a subset of Sony's private metadata.
*** The monitor is also equipped with a three-colours red, green and yellow on-screen tally function.
The position of the tally display can be changed to either the upper or lower section of the screen.
* Supported with V1.1
**Lens metadata is supported by F65, PMW-F55, PMW-F5, PXW-FS7M2 and PXW-FS7 as well as equipment capable of SMPTE RDD18.
*** Not all metadata is supported.

2K (2048 x 1080) input and image-slide*
The LMD-A220 monitor can display 2K (2048 x 1080 resolution) input.
The 2K signal is displayed in two ways – as a full 2K image scaled into a full-HD (1920 x 1080) screen,
or as a 2K native display with an image-slide function.
Supported with V1.1

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.

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
