Sony LMD-170WS User's Manual

Professional Video LCD Monitors
LMD-230WS
LMD-170WS
(Shown with optional table stand)
Sony unveils its impressive new lineup of elegant twopiece Professional Video LCD monitors—the LUMA™
Series. Choose from the LMD-230WS or LMD-170WS
LCD monitors, both of which are driven by a separate,
powerful 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 the 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 17.1-inch (viewable area,
measured diagonally) 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.
■ Outstanding Picture Performance
2-2 and 2-3 Pull-Down Functions
Excellent Brightness and Contrast
The LMD-230WS and LMD-170WS 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.
Conventional technology
When displaying film-originated sources, the 2-2 and 2-3 Pull-Down
functions help to reproduce natural and detailed pictures. If NTSC
signals that have been converted from film are detected, each frame
of the original film is accurately reproduced by the 2-3 Pull-Down
function. Any other video signals, including PAL signals, are converted
by the 2-2 Pull-Down function with natural reproduction.

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.
SDI 4:2:2 Input Adaptor
BKM-220D
• SDI signal input (x2) • Monitor output (x1)
• Power consumption: Max. 1.5 W
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.
HD SDI&SDI Input Adaptor
BKM-243HS
• HD SDI/SDI signal input (x2) • Monitor output (x1)
• Power consumption: Max. 2 W
HD SDI and SDI signals are automatically detected.
■ Stylish Design
These innovative two-piece type Sony LCD monitors consist of a thin,
lightweight LCD monitor unit and a high-input/output, highly functional
signal-processing unit. Because they are separate units, the LCD
monitor is not weighed down by the circuitry of the signal-processing
Multiformat Engine Unit. 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-170WS and LMD-230WS
can be positioned at various heights and tilt angles – meeting a wide
range of application needs.
■ Input Versatility
Multi-Format Signal Support
The multiformat engine accepts a wide range of analog and digital
signals such as NTSC, PAL, 480/60I, 575/50I, 480/60P, 576/60P,
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
i.LINK® Input Adaptor
BKM-255DV
• DV signal port* (x 2) • Transfer rate: 400 Mbps
• Power consumption: Max. 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; power is not supplied through this port.
Computer Signal Memory
The multiformat engine includes sufficient memory for 17 preset
computer input signals. In addition, 20 user-setting memories are
available for individual user input signals.
Smart APA (Auto Pixel Alignment) for Computer Input
Image size and shift can be automatically adjusted to their optimal
settings with the one-touch APA key.
■ Flexibility
Seven-Language On-Screen Display
The On-Screen Display is available in English, French, Spanish,
German, Italian, Japanese, and Chinese.
The multiformat engine 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 connectors.
*2 SXGA images are displayed reduced.
Signal-Interface Options
Color Temperature/Gamma Selection
The multiformat engine can receive HDSDI/SDI, SDI or DV signals
via the following newly designed small-sized optional input adaptors:
High/low color temperatures or user presets can be selected.
Selectable Scan Size for Video Input and Aspect Ratio
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.

■ Other Features
Mountable in a 19-Inch EIA Standard Rack
Three-Color Tally
The tally lamp can be lit up via a parallel remote connector, and
the status of the monitor can be identified by the tally color – red,
green, or amber.
The LMD-170WS panel can be mounted in a 7U-sized, 19-inch
EIA standard rack with the optional Mounting Bracket MB-522.
The multiformat engine can be mounted in a 1U-sized, 19-inch
EIA standard rack with the supplied mounting bracket.
Parallel Remote Control
VESA Mounting Standard
The multiformat engine can be controlled remotely with the parallel remote connector. There are 30 functions in the Remote
menu (such as the ability to switch input signals), of which
seven can be allocated to the connector.
Complying with VESA standards, the LMD-170WS and LMD230WS can easily be mounted on a wall or a ceiling. Although
a large-screen monitor, it remains thin and lightweight because
the large-scale signal-processing circuitry is contained in the
separate engine 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 multiformat engine.
Stereo Audio Monitoring
The multiformat engine is equipped with stereo speakers
(1W+1W), which enable the user to monitor audio.
