Overview

The PVM-A170 (17-inch) monitor has a TRIMASTER EL™ OLED panel for outstanding colour accuracy and offers the widest viewing angles of any professional flat-panel monitor on the market, ensuring group monitoring is easy to set-up and exceptionally reliable. It also features an industry-leading, lightweight and shallow body with an approximately 40 per cent reduction compared to the previous PVM-1741A model. Consequently, it is very easy to carry, even by one person, and this stylish design also includes a detachable handle, robust double-coated paint finish.

Features

Slim and lightweight – easy to carry
The PVM-A170 monitor achieves the industry-leading lightweight and slim body* – the PVM-A170 weighs 4.2 kg and is approx. 40 per cent thinner than the previous PVM-1741A model. This advantage allows users to widen their applications, including field monitoring and installation on the monitor wall and OB van.

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.
   
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.

Yoke-mount and VESA-mount capability
The PVM-A170 has screw holes on its side bezels for yoke-mounting. This type of mounting is convenient when installing a monitor to a camera crane or monitor stand in the field. There are also VESA mount 100-mm pitch holes on each monitor’s rear panel.
   
Room clearance connector panel design
The connector panel on the rear of each monitor is designed to allow sufficient cord clearance, despite of the unit’s slim dimension. This design allows space saving and cabling flexibility.
   
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 signal input capability
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 and vector scope 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.
   
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.
   
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.
   
Improved flicker free function
A flicker free function is available that offers an improvement in the default setting of brightness control.
   
On screen Tally
The monitor is equipped with a three-colours red, green and yellow On-screen Tally function.
   
Network control function
The PVM-A170 has a 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.
   
DC operation
The PVM-A170 is equipped with a DC power connector that allows operation within the 12V to 16V power range.
   
Detachable handle
The monitor is equipped with a detachable handle for field applications. It can be removed to reduce weight when installed in a monitor wall or when it is rack mounted.
   
Additional professional features
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; and external remote control function.
