The Sony LMD-1530W is a 15.3" high definition monitor designed for 3G-SDI capability. The display monitor incorporates a 15:9 aspect ratio, a high resolution LCD panel, and an HDMI interface. It also comes in an almost equivalent size, both in height and width, as to the popular LMD-1420 and LMD-1410 SD monitors. Where smooth migration from the LMD-1420 or LMD-1410 to HD picture monitoring is desired, the LMD-1530W is an ideal choice in terms of product features, operational usability, installation convenience, as well as picture quality.

Input Versatility
The LMD-1530W comes equipped with a full range of analog SD inputs including analog composite, Y/C (S-Video), component and RGB, as well as RGB/PC. Additionally, the monitor will handle SD-SDI input by using the optional BKM-320D SD-SDI input adapter.
Advanced Marker Settings
The LMD-1530W can display various area markers including center and aspect. The brightness of these markers can be selected from three different levels; white, gray, and dark gray. Users can also select either a black or gray matte to fill the outer area of the aspect markers. These flexible marker controls, together with the choice of many different aspect markers, make these monitors extremely convenient display devices for a variety of shooting scenarios.
High Purity Color Filters
The high-purity RGB color filters allow reproduction of colors with stunning depth, saturation, brightness and contrast.
Color Temperature/Gamma Selection
Users can select from high, low, or preset color temperatures. A variety of gamma modes can also be selected.
Three Color Tally System
The monitor comes equipped with a tally lamp that can be lit via a parallel remote connector. The status of the signal displayed on the monitor can be identified by the tally color: red, green, or amber.
Parallel Remote Capability
The unit can be controlled remotely via their parallel remote connectors. In the remote menu, there are 17 functions of which 7 can be allocated and controlled remotely. Very cool.
Internal Audio Monitoring
Built-in speakers enable simple sound monitoring without having to connect any additional audio equipment.
Protected Controls
The key-inhibit function helps prevent inadvertent operation from the control panel.
Wide Viewing Angle
With the 178° viewing angle, users can view the monitor from anywhere in the room.
Rack Mountable
The LMD-1530W (7U-high) can be mounted in a 19" EIA standard rack using optional MB-533 Mounting Bracket.

        We use this monitor in the semiconductor industry. We use it in high end equipment to view our product. It has a great picture with little noise. We did have a slight problem with the syncing but that may be a little from our end.

            Comments about Sony LMD-1530W 15.3" LCD Monitor:

            it looked like a promising product.
            I plugged in the hdmi and after 2 minutes the scan lines went haywire and the monitor failed.

            the LCD had clear 4-5 dead pixcels in one spot and can be easily seen in the naked eye

            highly unprofessional made in china product stay away, come on Sony you can do better why do want to get into cheap business and spoil your reputation, what a waste of time

            don't buy this model
