PVM-L2300
Sony Extends its TRIMASTER Series With the PVM-L2300 TRIMASTER
Broadcast Monitor
Since its introduction in 2006, Sony’s TRIMASTER™ technology
has been widely adopted for high-end picture-monitoring
applications, and acclaimed for its high picture quality,
operability, and reliability. Sony now introduces a new
TRIMASTER monitor for broadcast applications.
The PVM-L2300 is a 23-inch1 LCD
In addition, the PVM-L2300 offers great

Main features
The PVM-L2300 incorporates the professional display engine used in Sony’s BVM-L231 master
monitor. In addition, it also features a unique high-grade 23-inch1 full resolution LCD panel and a
high-quality WCG-CCFL (Wide Colour Gamut CCFL) backlight system. What is great about the
PVM-L2300 monitor is that it conforms to broadcast-standard colour gamuts unlike some wide
CCFL backlight system LCD monitors. As a result of all this, the PVM-L2300 offers a high level of
picture quality, accuracy, and reliability.

Superb Picture Quality and Stable Colour Reproduction
Multiple Colour Gamuts
(SMPTE-C, EBU, ITU-R BT.709)2
The PVM-L2300 incorporates the same
colour conversion system as the
BVM-L231 master monitor – the nonlinear
cubic conversion colour management
system – which uses a unique 3-D LUT
(look-up table) to reproduce precise
colour gamuts throughout the entire
grayscale. Also, while wide CCFL
backlights can in general reproduce
wider colour gamuts than conventional
CCFL backlights,
not all wide CCFLs are compatible
with broadcast colour gamuts. The
WCG-CCFL backlight of the PVM-L2300
is designed to emulate BVM-CRT colour
gamuts. And combined with its unique
colour management system, this
enables the PVM-L2300 to accurately
reproduce colour gamuts that emulate2
broadcast standards such as ITU-R
BT.709, and EBU and SMPTE-C phosphor
standards. Compared to past CRT
monitors, which offer only one colour
gamut per model, the PVM-L2300 allows
these colour gamuts to be selected and
reproduced on the same monitor – a
feature only made possible by Sony’s
unique monitor technologies.

The PVM-L2300 can accept almost any SD or HD video format, both analog and
digital, plus PC signals from VGA to WUXGA (1920 x 1200). In addition to a DVI-D
and an HDMI interface equipped as standard, four option board slots are offered
to configure the PVM-L2300 according to different user needs. The optional analog
interfaces accept composite, Y/C, Y/PB/PR, and RGB. Digital interfaces accept SDSDI, HD-SDI, Dual-Link HD-SDI, and 3G SDI inputs. Acceptable signal formats include:
525/60i, 625/50i, 525/60P, 625/50P, 720/50P and 720/60P, 10-bit/
12-bit RGB 4:4:4 1080/24PsF, 1080/24P, 1080/25PsF, 1080/25P, 1080/50i, 1080/30PsF,

3G SDI Interface (V1.1 Feature)
The PVM-L2300 can be equipped with an optional 3G SDI interface. The
BKM-250TG 3G SDI interface board is compliant with the SMPTE 425 standard
and requires only one single SDI cable to transmit up to 10-bit 4:2:2 1080/60P video
signals. This optional 3G SDI interface offers a simple cabling solution for groups of
video equipment rack-mounted behind a sub-control room.

CCFL backlight system.
Digital Uniformity Correction
Typically, LCD monitors exhibit poor
uniformity performance. With the
PVM-L2300, white can be reproduced
uniformly right across the screen. At the
factory, grayscale levels are precisely
measured at each area of the panel
and if differences are detected
between areas, they are accurately
corrected by electrical means.
Professional Display Engine
The PVM-L2300 incorporates the display
engine used in the BVM-L231 master
monitor. This unique nonlinear cubic
conversion colour management
system, plus exclusively developed
I/P conversion technology, enables
the PVM-L2300 to reproduce images
faithfully.

Consistent Picture Quality
Each and every PVM-L2300 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. Also, a feedback system
supports this stability by constantly
detecting both the luminance level
and white balance.
The PVM-L2300 incorporates the latest
10-bit LCD driver and can achieve both

Flexible Input Configuration
Like both the BVM CRT and LCD master monitor series, the PVM-L2300 uses a modular
slot design so inputs can be configured according to individual needs. Four input
board slots are available. Optional input boards1 can be installed in any board slot,
and in almost any combination, allowing easier configuration and better cost-perinput value. These option boards utilize only one slot each, so up
to four cards can be installed for maximum flexibility.

Operational convenience
The PVM-L2300 is equipped with the same acclaimed
functions and operational conveniences of the BVM CRT and
BVM LCD master monitors. It also has some additional unique
features, which are only made possible by Sony’s flat-panel
technology.
Modular Monitor Control Unit (BKM-16R)
The monitor and control panel are provided as separate units, allowing greater
flexibility for system integration. Like the BVM-L231 master monitor, the PVM-L2300
incorporates the BKM-16R Monitor Control Unit, which can be attached below
the monitor using an optional Controller Attachment Stand (either the BKM-37H or
BKM-38H), or connected remotely via an Ethernet cable.
The PVM-L2300 monitor and the
BKM-16R controller attached with
the BKM-38H attachment stand.
Ethernet-based Remote Control
The PVM-L2300 monitor and BKM-16R Monitor Control Unit are equipped with
an Ethernet port, allowing remote control of monitor settings across a standard
Ethernet connection. One BKM-16R Monitor Control Unit can control up to thirty-two
(32) monitors4.

Operational convenience
Copy function
The optional BKM-16R control unit has a Memory Stick® slot1 to save and load
monitor setup and adjustment data. This is useful for multiple monitor systems,
allowing the same setup and adjustment data to be loaded onto each unit2.
This data can also be transferred via the BVM’s Ethernet connection.
1 Both standard-size Memory Stick media and the smaller Memory Stick Duo®/Memory Stick PRO Duo® media can be used. A
Memory Stick Duo adaptor is not required.
2 Data can be moved between the BVM-A monitors, BVM-L monitors, and PVM-L monitors, respectively.
Picture & Picture (Side by Side)
The Picture & Picture function allows simultaneous display of two input signals
on the PVM-L2300’s LCD screen. The two picture images are downscaled and
displayed side by side. This function comes in handy for adjustments between
two cameras, special-effects creation, time-lapse shooting, and computergenerated graphics work, since there is no need to individually adjust the different
characteristics of two monitors. This feature offers greater convenience when
making white balance adjustments and/or determining shooting angles between
two cameras.
Pixel Zoom
The Pixel Zoom function of the
PVM-L2300 is a function for magnifying
images. A selected area of the displayed
picture can be enlarged on a pixel
basis, up to eight times both vertically
and horizontally. Because the function
does not use scaling, the desired picture
content is magnified and displayed
faithfully to the raw input signal. This
function is useful when evaluating precise
picture edges, such as for chroma keying.
3 This function is effective when the input signal is displayed by
the “Native Scan” mode.

Error Signal
Aspect Correction Mode
A major difference between CRT and LCD monitors is the shape of their respective pixel arrays. CRT monitors use a
non-square array, while LCD displays adopt a square-shaped array. Aspect Correction Mode is a technique used by LCD
displays to overcome this difference and emulate the look of a CRT image. Using a scaling technique, this function arranges
the SD input signal to emulate the CRT’s non-square pixel array in a horizontal direction. It also applies the appropriate
scaling algorithm depending on the video format, NTSC or PAL. An interlace display mode can also be applied when
necessary, enabling the monitor to reproduce familiar-looking SD images.

Native Scan (pixel-to-pixel display)
Conventional flat panel monitors reproduce images using scaling and I/P conversion due to their fixed pixel counts and
progressive scanning processes. The Native Scan function equipped on the PVM-L2300 is a unique display mode that reproduces
images without changing the input signal’s pixel count. For example, when an SD signal is input, the PVM-L2300 will reproduce the
image at a picture size of 720 x 4874 pixels. For SD input in particular, the Native Scan function also allows the image’s display size

Operational convenience
Variety of Display Modes
Most flat-panel monitors can only display progressive images at the input signal’s
frame rate. However, the PVM-L2300 has two additional and unique display modes
– Black Frame Insertion Display and Interlace Display:
Black Frame Insertion Display
Interlace Display
Combining its high frame-rate operation with a unique Black Frame Insertion technology,
the PVM-L2300 dramatically reduces motion blur, an artifact that is inherent to LCD
devices. Black Frame Insertion technology generates a “black” frame and inserts this in
every other picture frame. As a result, all of the panel’s LCD molecules are reset to their
default alignments, before the next picture frame is displayed.
The Interlace Display mode of the
PVM-L2300 can display interlace input
signals as interlace fields. As with the
Native Scan function, the Interlace
Display mode offers faithful reproduction
of the input signal and the displayed
interlace fields are free from the picture
degradation that can occur as a result
of the monitor’s I/P conversion process.
This effectively eliminates the image lag caused by inconsistencies in the speed at which
LCD molecules are realigned in accordance with the video signal change. Because the
number of frames is doubled, Black Frame Insertion Display reproduces the combined
picture content at twice the speed of the input signal’s frame rate1.
1 Supports 120-Hz and 100-Hz frame rates.
100/120Hz Black Frame Insertion Display
“HD Frame capture”
The HD Frame Capture function of the PVM-L2300
allows a picture frame from the HD-SDI input to be
captured and saved as a picture file on Memory Stick
media2. This picture file can be used as a reference for
various purposes, such as for picture-tone adjustments
between past images and for camera-framing
adjustments.
2 Both standard-size Memory Stick media and smaller Memory Stick Duo/Memory
Stick PRO Duo media can be used. A Memory Stick Duo adaptor is not required.

100/120Hz Interlace Display
Black Detail Mode
“+12dB Chroma Up” Function
Due to the mechanism of an LCD panel, backlight leakage from the panel surface
is unavoidable. Black Detail Mode is a function that provides more accurate
monitoring of black details in dark, low-APL images. With the PVM-L2300, utilizing a
sophisticated backlight system and a unique signal-processing algorithm, the black
region of the video level is effectively enhanced1. This function is recommended as
an auxiliary function.
A “Chroma UP” button located on the
front panel of the BKM-16R allows the
Chroma Level to be boosted by +12
dB. This is a convenient feature for
adjusting camera white balance with
a higher degree of accuracy.
1 Video levels higher than 75% are clipped for display. This function can indicate the clipped areas with the zebra pattern.

Marker Settings
Like the earlier BVM Series CRT monitors
and BVM-L Series LCD monitors, the
PVM-L2300 monitor can display
various markers, including an aspect
marker, safe area marker, and centre
marker. In addition to this flexible
selection of marker types, detailed
display settings of each marker are
offered. For example, the colour,
brightness, horizontal/vertical position,
and width of aspect markers can all
be controlled, while the height and
width of safe area markers can be
adjusted. What’s more, users can
also choose to display two safe area
markers, each selectable between
three marker variations. These flexible
marker controls, together with the
choice of many different marker types
such as aspect marker types (lines or
aspect blanking) and centre marker
types (long or short), make the
PVM-L2300 monitor the perfect allround display device for a variety of
shooting scenarios.

Auto white balance
The colour temperature and white
balance of the PVM-L2300 monitor
can be automatically adjusted by the
Auto White Balance function using the
specified colour temperature probes1,
such as the Konica Minolta CA-210,
DK-Technologies PM5639/06, and X-Rite
i1 (Eye-One) Pro.
1 A connector is required for each colour analyzer.
Auto Chroma/Phase

An Auto Chroma/Phase/Matrix setup
function is provided on the PVM-L2300,
which automatically adjusts the monitor’s
chroma, phase, and matrix using external
colour bars.
“Character Off” Button
(BKM-16R)
To facilitate manual adjustments, the
On-Screen Menu indication can be
taken off the screen, while the Menu
mode is still active. The On-Screen
Menu indication can be toggled on or
off simply by the press of a button on
the BKM-16R’s front panel.
