Sony launches next-generation 4K HDR monitors in TRIMASTER series

PVM-X2400 24-inch 4K HDR professional monitor

GTC sponsor Sony Electronics has announced the US launch of a new set of high-grade 4K HDR monitors from Sony’s TRIMASTER range. The PVM-X2400 (24") and the PVM-X1800 (18.4") professional 4K HDR monitors — first unveiled and demonstrated at BSC Expo 2020 in London — will be setting new standards in professional monitor performance.

Highly accurate colour reproduction

The monitors provide high picture quality and accurate colour reproduction thanks to specified and dedicated panels offering ultra-high definition, with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, and an impressive brightness of all-white luminance of 1000 cd/m2. For optimum film production, their wide colour gamut matches the industry-leading BVM-HX310 TRIMASTER HX master monitor. The result is exact colour reproduction and precise greyscale, giving filmmakers a reliable tool to help make critical imaging decisions and provide faithful colour matching throughout the workflow.

Compact in size, and with maximum portability, the monitors are aimed to expand footprints in 4K HDR production to include versatile applications such as on-set monitoring, non-linear video editing, studio wall monitoring, and rack-mount monitoring in OB trucks or machine rooms.

The monitors also feature new Black Detail High/Mid/Low, helping to maintain accurate colour reproduction by reducing the brightness of the backlight to ensure correct colours and gradations are produced in low-luminance areas.

Another new function, Dynamic Contrast Drive, dynamically changes backlight luminance to adapt to each scene or frame when transferring images from PVM-X2400/X1800 to an existing Sony OLED monitor. This functionality allows filmmakers to check the highlight and lowlight balance of the contents with both bright and dark scenes.
