Sony's OLED with a 10-bit RGB Driver
The PVM-741 monitor's Quarter HD resolution (960 x 540 pixels) and a 10-bit RGB driver, together with Sony's Super Top Emission OLED display panel, create life-like and smoother-than-ever gradation from dark to bright portions of a scene such as in a sunrise or sunset.
Good Black Performance
Thanks to Sony's OLED system, deep blacks can be accurately displayed and the black portion of an image is not degraded.
Quick Response with Blur-Free Motion
Because the OLED electroluminescent layer inherently responds to any electrical current input, it emits light immediately. By this mechanism, excellent quick response characteristics can be achieved in fast-motion images.
Multi-Format Signal Interfaces With 2x 3G / HD / SD-SDI Input Capability
To provide flexibility, this monitor incorporates various video interfaces as standard, including 2x 3G / HD / SD, SDI, 1x HDMI interface, and 1x Composite input.
3G-SDI Interface Capability
With the 3G-SDI interface, the monitor accepts 1080/50p and 1080/60p formats, which is compliant with the SMPTE 425 standard, transmitting up to 4:2:2/10-bit 1080/60p and 1080/50p video data using a 1x SDI cable. It also accepts 10-bit 4:4:4 Y/ Cb /Cr and 4:4:4 RGB of 3G-SDI signals for various formats. When an upgrade to these 1080/p systems is required, this single-link 3G-SDI system is a suitable, future-proof solution.
8-Channel Audio Level Meter Display
When an SDI interface is connected, the embedded audio level can be displayed on the screen with an 8-channel audio level meter.
HDMI Interface for a Wide Range of Applications
HDMI connectivity can expand user's convenience and applications. For example, the monitor can be connected with a professional video system such as XDCAM, XDCAM-EX, NXCAM, and HDV. Furthermore, consumer video products like Blu-ray and digital cameras are also connectable. You can also use this monitor for applications like Blu-ray video authoring and digital photo image previews.
Waveform Monitor and Vector Scope Display
A combination of the vector scope and waveform monitor functions helps users in field production without additional measurement equipment. An input signal's waveform and a 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 the white balance. The waveform of a specified line can also be displayed.
Time Code Display
This monitor can display on-screen a time code; either LTC or VITC is selectable.
Flip Function
The monitor has a feature to flip the picture without frame delay, horizontally, vertically, or both horizontally and vertically. This feature is useful for 3D acquisition system with a 3D rig camera.
Camera Focus Functions
The monitor helps in controlling the aperture level of a video signal and can display images on the screen with sharpened edges. Further to this, the sharpened edges can be displayed in user-selectable colors (white, red, green, blue, and yellow) for more precise focusing. This camera focus function can even be enhanced when combined with the native scan mode.
Color Temperature
Color temperatures of D93, D65, or a USER preset value can be selected.
Auto White Adjustment
The monitor employs a software-based color temperature (white balance) calibration function, which is called Monitor Auto White Adjustment. Combined with a PC and commercially available calibration tools, this function enables simple adjustment of the monitor's white balance. 1
Sophisticated I/P Conversion
The monitor uses a motion-adaptive I/P-conversion process to achieve conversion results that are optimized to the picture content whether the image is static or dynamic. Highly accurate I/P conversion of both HD and SD inputs is provided regardless of signal resolution.
I/P Mode Selection
The PVM-741 monitor provides 4x I/P modes so that users can select the most suitable mode for each purpose.


  • INTER-FIELD: Interpolates images between fields. This is used for picture quality optimization (e.g., to reduce jagged effect on moving pictures).
  • INTRA-FIELD: Interpolates images within the field, and delivers naturally reproduced images and quick picture processing. This mode is available only for the 1920 x 1080 SDI signal input.
  • FIELD MERGE: Combines lines alternately in odd and even fields regardless of picture movements. This is used for PsF (Progressive Segmented Frames) processing and still image monitoring.
  • LINE DOUBLER: Interpolates by repeating each line. This is used for editing and monitoring fast-moving images, and checking line flicker. The minimum processing time is less than 1 field (0.5 frames).
Center Marker and Aspect Markers
The monitor can display a center marker and aspect markers. The brightness of these markers can be selected from 2 different levels: gray and dark gray. Users can also select a gray mat to fill the outer area of the aspect markers.
Safety Area Markers
The safety area markers can be selected from 80, 85, 88, 90, and 93%.
External Remote Control Function
The monitor has an external remote control capability for input / output signal selection and adjustment of various items via Ethernet (10BASE-T / 100BASE-TX) connection. Up to 32 monitors and up to 4x BKM16R monitor control units can be connected via Ethernet connection and controlled remotely on the network. Also, this monitor supports some functions of BKM-16R, an optional remote control unit for BVM-E/BVM-F/BVM-L/PVM-L series monitors, such as the power on / off switch and the Input Select function. 2
Power-Saving Mode
When no input signal is received for over a minute, the monitor goes into the power-saving mode and consumes minimal power. This function prevents unnecessary electrical consumption.
Silent Mode
This convenient function enables users to stop the built-in cooling fan, thus enabling monitor operation without any fan rotation noise. Silent mode is ideal when noise must be avoided.
Closed-Caption Decoder
The closed caption information embedded in EIA/CEA-608 and EIA/CEA-708 can be decoded for display.
User-Friendly Control Panel Design
By assigning monitor functions to each of its 7 function buttons, users can customize the monitor for a specific application or usage such as field or studio use. Seven functions can be allocated to the assignable buttons. Button lights are dimmable and indicator lights are on / off switchable. This function allows users to easily operate the monitor in a dark environment without interference of these lights.
Robust, Lightweight, Compact Body
  • Flexible Styling: Incorporating a light-weight and compact aluminum die cast body with a detachable AR-coated protection panel, this model is flexible enough to change in configuration according to user requirements: with or without stand (which is easily detachable), tilted on a stand (15˚ slant), rack-mounted, or set on a camera pedestal.
  • Retractable Carrying Handle: This monitor comes with a retractable carrying handle, using which users find it easy to hand carry this OLED monitor anytime and anywhere.  
  • Mounting Flexibility: This monitor is 3.8U high and half-rack wide. Using the optional MB-531 mounting bracket (sold separately) with a 10˚ forward and 10˚ backward nonstop-tilt capability, 2 units can be installed side by side in a 19” (48.26 cm) EIA standard rack.
  • Easy Integration into a Camera System: With 3/8” and 1/4" screw holes on its base, the PVM-741 monitor can be integrated with a camera system. Also, with the supplied arm-mount bracket fixed on the top, it can be installed in a camera arm.
  • Detachable AR (Anti-Reflection)-Coated Protection Panel: AR-coated protection panel keeps the OLED panel surface from scratch and keeps reflection from ambient light to a minimum.
  • AC / DC Operations: The PVM-741 monitor can be operated with 2-way power supplies: 12 VDC and VAC via the attached dedicated AC adapter.

    Comments about Sony PVM-741 7.4" TRIMASTER EL OLED Monitor:

    For the most part I'm pretty happy with this monitor. It's probably the priciest field monitor available and the quality of the picture is excellent. Also, when compared to both the computer monitor and an older LMD Style 23" LCD Sony Monitor, it is noticeably better.

    The aliasing and interlace flicker evident on the older monitors when displaying vertical lines (such as exterior shots of large office buildings with lots of square and rectangle windows) is non-existent with the OLED series monitors. The PVM-741 has almost no artifacting. The OLED technology presents a really beautiful picture.

    My one complaint is that the monitor has a slight green cast. Online reviews from other uses note this problem as well.

    The monitor evidently can be calibrated but it requires additional equipment and software. For this price, I think the monitor should be ready to go out of the box. As it is, the monitor is usable but colors are not as accurate as on my desktop monitors in my edit bays. And, there is really no way to correct it (that I have discovered) without purchasing additional equipment.

    Further, where I'm located, there are no large facilities readily available to pay someone else to calibrate the monitor. It's a high quality piece of kit, but really could use some tweaking before it's perfect.

      Comments about Sony PVM-741 7.4" TRIMASTER EL OLED Monitor:

      I have had other monitors and once I started using this it was clear that you get what you pay for.
      While this little huy is pricey it delivers it image quality and form factor and use. I got the battery and other accesories as well.
      It has a lot of flexibility and I am sure clients will love its portability.
