Sony BVM-L231 overview

  • 1Description

The Sony BVM-L231 is a 23" professional LCD monitor designed to function as CRT replacement in broadcast and finishing studios. The BVM-L231 reference LCD monitor supersedes the market leading BVM-A series CRT models, heralding in a new era in broadcast post-production, D-Cinema production, evaluation and mastering. Using highly efficient LEDs increase precision across the board, resulting in the broadest color gamut in the industry. With its exceptional performance and the advantages of LCD, the BVM-L231 is a deserving successor to CRT broadcast reference monitors.

Trimaster Technology
Trimaster technology provides a level of performance capable of handling even the most critical applications. Whether it's digital finishing for major motion pictures or simply needing the utmost in image clarity, the display passes with flying colors; no pun intended.
Small Footprint
With a feature-set previously only afforded to the Sony's line of professional CRT monitors, the LCD workstations need not worry, the BVM-L231 has it all covered.
Ultra-Wide Color Gamut
The precision backlight LEDs used exclusively in the BVM-L231 offer the widest range of colors seen on any LCD panel, resulting in broadcast safe images akin to those seen on high quality CRT monitors. Additionally, the color feedback system makes sure colors always stay true and accurate.
Optional Interface Slots
The BVM-L231 is built for maximum customization. Featuring four optional input slots, the monitor can accommodate the specific needs of virtually any studio. Choose from SDI, HD-SDI, RGB, Component or Y/C.
Full HD Panel
The BVM-L231 achieves both high resolution and stunning colour depth using a full 1920 x 1200 HD LCD panel and precise 10-bit drivers. It delivers outstandingly crisp, high brightness and high contrast HD images in native mode.
LCD Panel Calibration
Each and every BVM-L231 monitor is carefully calibrated at the factory on an individual basis, providing a high level of accuracy and stability for characteristics such as gamma and uniformity.
Ultra-High Precision Correction
White can be reproduced uniformly at every point of the screen on the BVM-L231. This is due to the use of two advanced technologies: precise adjustment of the LCD panel characteristics and sophisticated LED backlight control.
LED Backlight
By using LED backlight technology, the monitor provides an exceptionally broad colour gamut for faithful colour display, as well as delivering precise picture uniformity and stability.
Sophisticated Color Management System
The nonlinear cubic conversion color management system uses a unique 3D LUT to reproduce an extremely wide colour gamut, thus offering more accurate color reproduction.
Stable Color Reproduction
The innovative precision LED backlight and Color Management System deliver accurate and consistent color temperature right across the greyscale range. Consequently, the monitor can emulate ITU-709, SMPTE-C, and EBU colour spaces with ease. It can also emulate D-Cinema color gamut
Auto White-Balance
The BVM-L231 can perform automatic colour temperature adjustments when connected to an external color analyzer, such as those from Minolta, DK and X-Rite.
12-Bit Output
The BVM-L231 uses a 12-bit output display engine, allowing images to be reproduced with high precision for accurate evaluation and manipulation.
Advanced Progressive Output
The BVM-L231 uses a sophisticated I/P conversion technique that keeps artifacts that are often seen in typical LCD monitors to a minimum, such as edge jaggedness, conversion errors, and ensure a picture delay that is less than one field.
3G-SDI Support
The BVM-L231 is capable of displaying an exceptionally broad range of signal formats with an extremely high degree of colour accuracy. Formats include 3G-SDI, which functions at twice the bandwidth of traditional HD-SDI.
Black Frame Insertion Mode
By turning on the LCDs black frame insertion users can dramatically reduce motion blur.
S-Log Gamma Settings
S-Log is the original logarithmic gamma developed for the F35 series CineAlta camera. It enables to transmit the full Dynamic of the camera over 700%. The monitor S-Log anti Gamma function allows displaying the full dynamic range on the screen.
Memory Stick Slot
The memory stick socket located in the BKM-16R control unit enables users to download and save all monitor set-ups such as input channel configuration, control preset adjustments, white balance settings and maintenance parameters.
Centralized Monitor Control
Multiple monitors can be easily managed by a single control unit via a serial RJ-45 Ethernet connector.
