Sony unveils its impressive new lineup of elegant two-piece LCD monitors. Choose from the LMD-230W or LMD-170W
LCD monitors, both of which use the power of the MEU-WX1 signal-processing Multiformat Engine.
Their innovative designs offer the perfect solution for a wide variety of professional applications.
Thin, lightweight, and simple, the two LCD monitors provide outstanding installation flexibility.
And when integrated with the optional monitor stand, it is easy to adjust both height and tilt- to achieve the optimum
viewing angle. Based on the latest developments in image processing, such as new “X Algorithm” technology, these
monitors provide outstanding natural images with a high level of brightness and contrast.
They accept a wide variety of signal formats such as analog RGB and HD, and computer signals from VGA to SXGA.
Building on Sony’s successful PVM series, these all new 23–inch and 17-inch LCD monitors are designed to meet a wide
range of picture-monitoring demands in professional applications such as broadcast stations, OB vehicles,
post-production studios, and digital photo studios.
■ Superior Picture Performance
Conventional technology
X Algorithm
Excellent Brightness and Contrast
The LMD-230W and LMD-170W monitors utilize WXGA LCD panels
to provide high-brightness and high-contrast images with natural color
reproduction. Incorporating a color filter with broad color gamut, these
monitors display outstanding natural images.

Interpolation Technology – X Algorithm
This new “X Algorithm” technology delivers impressive improvements
in picture quality. Jaggy noise, which often occurs on the edge
of moving objects in pictures, is effectively removed. Traditionally,
standard-definition video signals are converted from interlace signals
into progressive signals through the formation of a frame picture with
two field pictures. This often results in jagged shape noise along the
oblique direction of fast-moving objects. To overcome this, the
“X Algorithm” technology detects motion and, through comparison of
the oblique pixels above, below, and adjacent to the moving part,
inserts a new line. This reproduces images smoothly, such as a
fluttering flag with moving oblique lines. X Algorithm is especially
effective for low-resolution images.
Wide Viewing Angle
The LCD panel has a wide viewing angle of 170 degrees, horizontally
and vertically, enabling images to be viewed from various positions and
angles.
AR-Coated Protection Panel
The LCD panel is protected from various types of damage by a highly
durable protection panel. The panel has an anti-reflection (AR) coating
with a high-transmission rate that reduces the effects of outside light.

■ Stylish Design
These innovative two-piece type Sony LCD monitors consist of a thin,
lightweight LCD monitor unit and highly functional signal-processing
unit with many inputs and outputs. Because they are separate
units, the LCD monitor is not weighed down by the circuitry of
the signal-processing Multiformat Engine Unit (MEU). Consequently,
its design is as thin and as light as possible – resulting in outstanding
installation flexibility.
When attached to the optional monitor stand SU-558, which has a
biaxial joint in the neck assembly, the LMD-170W and LMD-230W
can be positioned at various heights and tilt angles – meeting a wide
range of application needs.
DV Input Adaptor
BKM-255DV
• DV signal port* (x 2) • Transfer rate: 400 Mbps
• Power consumption: 4 W
The BKM-255DV accepts and outputs DV signals. However it
does not accept the full AV/C command sets.
*The port has a 6-pin connector. And power is not supplied through this port.
Computer Signal Memory
The MEU-WX1 includes sufficient memory for 16 preset computer
input signals.
Smart APA (Auto Pixel Alignment) for Computer Input
■ Input Versatility
Image size can be automatically adjusted to their optimal settings
with the one-touch APA key.
Multi-Format Signal Support
The MEU-WX1 accepts a wide range of analog and digital signals
such as NTSC, PAL, 480/60I, 575/50I, 480/60P, 576/50P, 1080/50I,
1080/60I, and 720/60P. It also accepts 1080/24PsF, converting it
into 1080/48I and 1080/25PsF converted in 1080/50I.
It can accept one analog video signal from the following inputs,
which is then output with loop-through:
1. Analog component (GBR) input
2. Analog component (Y/PB/PR) input
3. Composite (CVBS) and Y/C (S-Y, S-C) input *1
■ Flexibility
Seven-Language On-Screen Display
The On-Screen Display is available in English, French, Spanish,
German, Italian, Japanese, and Chinese.
The MEU-WX1 also accepts one signal input from various types of
analog computer signals. Incorporating a high-performance scan
converter, it can accept input signals from VGA to SXGA*2.
*1 Y/C input signals must be input via BNC connectors that are converted from
S-Video connectors.
Color Temperature/Gamma Selection
*2 SXGA images are downconverted for display.
High/low color temperatures or user presets can be selected.
Signal-Interface Options
Selectable Scan Size for Video Input and Aspect Ratio
The MEU-WX1 can receive HDSDI/SDI, SDI or DV signals via the
following newly designed small-sized optional input adaptors:
The screen size can be selected between 5% over-scan and 0%
inscan modes.
The aspect ratio can be switched between 16:9 and 4:3 according to
input signals.
Various Markers
The following marker functions are available: safety area marker, 4:3
marker, 2.35:1 marker, and 4:3 & 1.85:1 box marker - convenient for
movie makers.

■ Other Features
Parallel Remote Control
The MEU-WX1 can be controlled remotely with the parallel
remote connector. There are 31 functions in the Remote menu
(such as the ability to switch input signals), of which seven can
be allocated to the connector.
Stereo Audio Monitoring
The MEU-WX1 is equipped with stereo speakers (0.5W+0.5W),
which enable the user to monitor audio.
Protected Controls
The key-inhibit switch helps prevent inadvertent operation from
the control panel.
• H/V Delay Function
Mountable in a 19-Inch EIA Standard Rack
The LMD-170W can be mounted in a 7U-sized, 19-inch EIA
standard rack with the optional Mounting Bracket MB-522. The
MEU-WX1 can be mounted in a 1U-sized, 19-inch EIA standard
rack with the supplied mounting bracket.
VESA Mounting Standard
Complying with VESA standards, the LMD-170W and 230W
can easily be mounted on a wall or a ceiling. Although a largescreen monitor, it remains thin and lightweight because the
large-scale signal-processing circuitry is contained in the separate MEU-WX1 instead. In addition, the arm of the monitor unit
can be adjusted with more flexibility thanks to fewer connector
cables between the monitor unit and the MEU-WX1.
