SONY PVM-A170 Features:

Slim and lightweight – easy to carry

Viewing angle innovation
The PVM-A170 incorporates the TRIMASTER EL™ OLED panel
and offers the industry’s widest viewing angles for any professional flat-panel monitor on the market.

Accurate black reproduction
A key advantage of TRIMASTER EL is the fact that each pixel can be turned completely off.
No other display technology is able to offer this.
In comparison, TRIMASTER EL is capable of reproducing accurate black with each individual pixel,
enabling users to evaluate each picture image faithfully to the signal.

Accurate colour reproduction
Sony’s OLED Super Top Emission technology not only offers a wide colour gamut with its high purity of the three primary colours,
but also maintains this wide colour gamut throughout the entire luminance range.
TRIMASTER EL system is truly an ideal display device for accurate picture reproduction.
With OLED, users can see the details in the blacks, and see the colours as well.

Wide colour gamut*
Thanks to Sony’s unique OLED 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

Quick response with virtually no motion blur
The TRIMASTER EL grey-to-grey switching speed (measured in microseconds, µs)
is much faster than that of the LCD (measured in milliseconds, ms).
* This fast response benefits a variety of applications and uses, for example, in sports broadcasting.
* Sony’s test results.

Video input versatility
The PVM-A170 monitor is equipped with built-in standard input interfaces: 3G/HD/SD-SDI (x2), HDMI (HDCP) input (x1) and composite (x1).

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.

Optional protection kit
The BKM-PP17 optional accessory kit provides an AR-coated protection panel for the 17-inch monitor,
along with corner bumpers to safeguard the monitor from scratches and impact.
* Optional protection kit cannot be mounted together with the rack mount kit.

Yoke-mount and Wall-mount capability

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

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.

Camera focus function
The PVM-A170 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.

Line-doubler* mode for field dominance check and time code function
The PVM-A170 offers a line-doubler mode, which is helpful when checking for field order and line flicker.
In addition, LTC and VITC time code can be displayed at the top or bottom of the picture.
* Supported with V1.1

Auto white adjustment*
The PVM-A170 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

Enhanced Picture & Picture function*
The unique Picture & Picture function of the PVM-A170 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

2K (2048 x 1080) input and image-slide*
The PVM-A170 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

Camera/lens metadata display function and on-screen tally*
The PVM-A170 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.

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

Optimised low-latency I/P conversion
An I/P conversion system delivers automatically optimised signal processing according to input signals, with low latency (less than 0.5 field).
This helps with editing and monitoring fast-moving images, and with synchronising audio with lip sync.
