Sony’s OLED – Self-emitting Display Device
Sony’s OLED creates light by recombining an electron and a hole within certain organic materials. The process of emitting light
is extremely efficient when compared to other technologies currently used for display.
Its organic materials react to the control of the electrical current immediately, and do not emit light in the absence of an
electrical current. In this way, the OLED display panel features superb black performance and quick response to fast-motion
pictures. In addition, Sony’s OLED display panel delivers a wider color gamut.
Super Top Emission Technology
Sony’s Super Top Emission OLED panel is designed to deliver
light emission with the TFT layer on the rear side of the panel.
Therefore, the top emission structure offers more efficient light
emission than is typical with bottom emission structures where
TFT layers are placed on the front side of the panel, limiting
the light-emission aperture.
This Super Top Emission technology has a micro-cavity
structure which incorporates color filters. This cavity structure
uses an optical resonance effect to enhance color purity and
improve light-emission efficiency. In addition, the color filter of
each RGB also enhances the color purity of emitted light, and
reduces ambient light reflection.

Luminance [cd/m2]
A key advantage of Sony’s OLED is the fact that each pixel
can be turned completely off. No other display technology
is able to offer this. LCD either raises black luminance due
to intrinsic light leakage (as shown in the following graph),
or reduces black luminance with artificial local dimming
technologies. CRT always applies a bias voltage to place the
gun at the proper operating level. All of these display devices
have some limitation in accuracy of black reproduction. In
comparison, Sony’s OLED is capable of reproducing accurate
black with each individual pixel, enabling users to evaluate
each picture image faithfully to the signal.

Sony’s Super Top Emission technology not only offers a wide color gamut with its purity of the three primary colors, but also
maintains this wide color gamut throughout the entire luminance range. While all other display devices have limitations in
reproducing accurate colors, especially in the low signal levels, Sony’s OLED system is truly an ideal display device for picture
evaluation. With OLED, users see the details in the blacks, and see the colors as well.

Advantages of Sony’s OLED Technology
Quick Response with Virtually No Motion Blur
The Sony’s OLED gray-to-gray switching speed (measured in microseconds, μs) is much faster than that of the LCD (measured
in milliseconds, ms).* This fast response benefits a variety of applications and uses. For example, in sports broadcasting, when
camera pans would become blurred with an LCD, they remain sharp and clear with OLED. And with moving titles or graphics,
when text can be difficult to read on an LCD, OLED displays clear text, regardless of speed or direction.

High Contrast Performance
Sony’s OLED delivers the best contrast performance in all ambient light conditions compared to other display devices. From
dark environments to bright environments, black is black.
An LCD cannot display an accurate black in a dark environment due to intrinsic light leakage, and a CRT screen becomes
whitish in a bright environment where ambient light enters the thick glass on the surface, affecting the blacks of the image with
internal reflection.

BVM-E Series
Leading-edge Features from the BVM-L Series
Interlace Display
Aspect Correction Mode
BVM-E Series monitors offer an Interlace Display feature
for 1080i and SD inputs. This lets each BVM-E monitor
display these inputs as a true interlace display. As with the
Native Scan function, 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 typical I/P conversion processes.
PAL and NTSC video systems are all based on rectangular
pixels. Display of these formats on a square pixel panel
typically distorts the image. The BVM-E Series uses a unique
process called Aspect Correction which, while still offering
native pixel performance, continues to display image
geometry correctly. This scaling technique used in BVM-E
Series monitors corrects horizontal distortion while keeping the
vertical pixel count correctly displayed.

Scan Switch
The Scan Switch function allows switching between under
scan (-3%), normal scan (0%), and over scan (mask of the 5%
over scan portion in the normal scan).
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
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 BVM-E Series
monitors will reproduce the image at a picture size of 720 x
487* pixels. For SD inputs the Native Scan function also allows
the displayed image size to be doubled to 1440 x 974* by
duplicating and doubling each pixel both horizontally and
vertically.

BVM-E Series
Picture & Picture
The unique Picture & Picture function of the BVM-E Series allows simultaneous display of two input signals on the monitor’s
screen. This function is extremely convenient for making instant adjustments to two input sources, because there is no need to
individually adjust the different characteristics of two monitors.
This function comes in handy for adjustments between two cameras, special-effects creation, time-lapse shooting, and
computer graphics (CG) work. The BVM-E Series offers four Picture & Picture modes:
Side-by-side
The two picture images are downscaled using a
digital filter and displayed side-by-side. This feature is
convenient when making white balance adjustments or
determining shooting angles between two cameras.
WIPE
The area of the two pictures to be displayed is selected using
a vertical WIPE pattern, which is controlled from the BKM-16R.
This function is useful when picture detail of the two images
must be examined on a pixel basis. This is normally used to
review still images.
Butterfly
The two inputs are displayed as line-symmetric images on the
left and right halves of the screen. By adjusting the H-position
controller, the two images can be moved inward to the
middle of the screen. An instant comparison of the moving
images can then be made easily and accurately, without the
user having to move their eyes.
Blending
The two picture images are overlapped for display, and the
mix ratio is adjustable. This function is useful to verify whether
a foreground signal is accurately keyed into the background
signal, or when combining shoots with live action and
computer-generated effects.
Pixel Zoom
Pixel Zoom is a function for magnifying images. A selected
area of the displayed picture can be enlarged on a pixel
basis, up to eight times in size both vertically and horizontally.
Because this 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.
* This function is effective when the input signal is displayed in “Native Scan”
mode.

Error Signal
BVM-E Series
HD Frame Capture
S-LOG Gamma
The HD Frame Capture function of the BVM-E Series allows
a picture frame from the 3G-SDI and HD-SDI input to be
captured and saved as a picture file on Memory Stick™
media.* This picture file can be used as a reference for
various purposes; for example, as for picture-tone adjustments
between past images and for camera-framing adjustments.
BVM-E250 and BVM-E170 master monitors incorporate
gamma tables to reproduce images captured using S-LOG
Gamma technology. S-LOG gamma is a technique used in
Sony’s digital cinematography cameras that allows the full
latitude of the camera CCD to be maintained throughout
the production chain. Unlike conventional systems, in
which highlight contrast is compressed, S-LOG Gamma
logarithmically converts the video signal using characteristics
similar to film negatives.
This keeps the camera CCD dynamic range intact, even in
extreme highlight areas. Both the BVM-E250 and BVM-E170
allow reproduction as an inverse function of the camera’s
S-LOG gamma signals. Two display modes are offered:
* Memory Stick PRO™ (High-Speed) / Memory Stick PRO Duo™ (High-Speed)
can be used.
Gamut Error Display
BVM-E250 and BVM-E170 master monitors incorporate a
Gamut Error Display function that detects irregular signal
input. When an irregular signal is detected, these master
monitors indicate this with a zebra pattern over the relevant
area of the picture. Irregular signal data can include nonstandard input signals and video signals exceeding the
video level (selectable); these are generated during signal
conversion from HD component to RGB. Gamut Error Display
is a convenient feature that instantly alerts viewers to such
signals without requiring the use of a waveform monitor.
1) S-LOG Full
This mode displays the full dynamic range of the video signal
captured from Sony’s digital cinematography cameras.
2) S-LOG Standard
This mode displays image exposure levels at the lower part
of the S-LOG gamma signal dynamic range, allowing image
areas of regular brightness to be viewed clearly. Higher
exposure levels are clipped in this mode.
2048 Image Slide
The 2048 Image Slide function of the BVM-E250 and BVM-E170
allows 2K resolution (2048 x 1080 pixels) images to be
mapped, pixel-to-pixel, on the full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixels)
panel without picture degradation. When the user needs to
view the left or right edge of the picture frame, they can scroll
the image in a horizontal direction.

BVM-E Series
Marker settings
BVM-E Series monitors can display various markers, including
an aspect marker, safe area marker, and center marker. In
addition to this flexible selection of marker types, detailed
display settings of each marker are offered. For example, the
color, 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 center marker types (long or short), make
BVM-E Series monitors the perfect all-round display device for
a variety of shooting scenarios – from SD/HD video acquisition
to digital cinematography.

Deep Color Reproduction
Sony’s OLED technology shows the largest color range of
any Sony monitor ever offered. Color standards such as ITU-R
BT.709, EBU, and SMPTE-C are displayed more accurately
and, if desired, the OLED panel’s native color gamut can
be displayed. Sony’s micro-cavity structure uses an optical
resonance effect in combination with accurate color filters to
calibrate and stabilize RGB color accuracy. This combination
is also effective in reducing ambient light reflection, and
consequently deep color reproduction can be achieved
without degradation, particularly in bright environments.

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 on fast-motion images.
This efficient blur-free, fast response benefits a variety of
applications and scenes, e.g., in sports broadcasting,
monitoring of camera panning, and text scrolling.
I/P Mode Selection
The PVM-2541 and PVM-1741 monitors provide four I/P modes
so that users can select the most suitable mode for each
purpose:
INTER-FIELD:
This mode interpolates images between fields. This is used
for picture quality precedence (e.g., to reduce the jagged
effect on moving pictures).
INTRA-FIELD:
This mode interpolates images within the field, and delivers
naturally reproduced images and quick picture processing.
This mode is available only for 1920 x 1080 SDI signal input.
FIELD MERGE:
This mode combines lines alternately in odd and even
fields, regardless of picture movements. This is used for PsF
(Progressive Segmented Frame) processing and still image
monitoring.
LINE DOUBLER:
This mode 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 one field (0.5 frames).
Superb Uniformity
The PVM-2541 and PVM-1741 monitors incorporate a newly
developed OLED process to bring out the full performances of
the Sony’s OLED panels.
This OLED processor offers superb uniformity across all signal
levels at every point of the screen. At the factory, the OLED
panel uniformity is precisely measured and corrected using a
sophisticated RGB LUT (look-up table) adjustment system.
