The PVM-X550 is a quad-view OLED monitor, allowing customized individual display settings across four distinct views in HD, including: Electro-Optical Transfer Function (EOTF), Color space, Transfer Matrix and color temperature

Contrast, Bright and Chroma, Interface (3G-SDI, HD-SDI including Single Link/Dual Link and HDMI), and Signal structure (RGB and YCBCR).

The new PVM-X550 is equipped with the same signal-processing engine as the BVM-X300, providing a 12-bit output signal for picture accuracy and consistency. It also supports industry standard color spaces including the wider ITU-R BT.2020 for Ultra High Definition. These all work in tandem with Sony’s TRIMASTER EL™ technology.

“As demand grows for 4K and High Dynamic Range (HDR) content, production teams and their clients need more tools for evaluating video,” said Gary Mandle, Senior Product Manager, Sony Electronics. “This new monitor delivers quad-viewing flexibility in a size that meets the need for larger, more detailed monitors in post-production suites. And, it’s a perfect complement to our BVM-X300 30-inch 4K OLED critical evaluation reference monitor.”

The PVM-X550 supports HDR through Electro-Optical Transfer Functions (EOTF), such as S-Log3, SMPTE ST.2084 and Hybrid Log-Gamma, covering applications for both cinematography and broadcast.

The PVM-X550’s narrow bezel, lightweight design and off-axis viewing performance make it suited to wall mounting, a benefit in live production environments where space is often at a premium.

The PVM-X550 is planned to be available in summer 2016.  For more information please visit www.sony.com/monitors.
