BVE will be the European show debut for the 30-inch BVM-X300 4K OLED Monitor aimed at content producers with a HD or UHD workflow. With an OLED panel equipped with 4K (4096×2160) pixels, Sony said the BVM-X300 was a vital tool for applications such as colour grading and quality control in 4K. In addition, the BVM-X300 supports High Dynamic Range mode and a wide colour gamut conforming to DCI-P3 and most of the ITU-R BT.2020 standard. Furthermore, it supports S-GAMUT3.cine and S-GAMUT3.
Sony claimed this would ensure that for post production tasks the blacks would be black, and peak brightness would be reproduced more realistically with colours that are typically saturated in a conventional standard dynamic range. The company added that the HDR mode can brilliantly express sparkling town lights and stars in the night sky.
Multi-format support in the BVM-X300 means the monitor can display 4K, 2K, UHD and HD at various frame rates. HD signal support includes 3G-SDI single link for 1920 x 1080/50p 60p, YCbCr 4:2:2 10-bit, and 3G-SDI dual link for 1920 x 1080/50p 60p, 4:4:4 12/10-bit. It supports both 2 Sample Interleave (2SI) and Square Division signals.
David Cheesman, North European sales manager at Sony Europe, said: “BVE is always an exciting opportunity for us to showcase our latest solutions and customer projects in the UK. We’re showing the strength of our line-up, enabling customers to use the best tools from acquisition to post production.”
Sony is co-sponsor of the 4K theatre at BVE. Presentations will offer insights into the latest 4K developments in acquisition, post production and delivery through a variety of panel discussions and case study sessions.
