 Sony BVM-E170A 16.5" OLED Reference Monitor with Wide Viewing Angle
TRIMASTER EL™ broadcast reference monitor with dramatically improved viewing angle
For professional applications such as colour grading, high-end editing, broadcasting and scientific research, Sony’s leading edge Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) technology and signals processing technology ensures absolutely outstanding performance with the BVM-E170A. The colour shift depending on the viewing angle has reduced to less than half compared to a conventional OLED panel. It allows several people to evaluate the image with extreme accuracy at the same time, increasing the monitor’s versatility in top end monitoring solutions.

State-of-the-art product
Super Top Emission technology enhances OLED’s intrinsic benefits to deliver outstanding black performance, a quick response time with virtually no motion blur, and a wide colour gamut. A 12-bit output digital signal processing engine provides a nonlinear cubic conversion colour-management system that delivers precise colour reproduction, stunning picture uniformity, smoother-than-ever gamma performance, and picture quality consistency.

Accepts computer signals via HDMI
The BVM-E170A accepts various computer signals input up to 1920 x 1080 through its HDMI connector. It is also equipped with Digital Cinema features.

This product also comes with PrimeSupport – fast, hassle-free repairs and a helpline offering expert technical advice which gives you the peace of mind.
