55-inch 4K TRIMASTER EL™ OLED high grade picture monitor
Optimized large 55-inch screen for 4K colour grading, with very close colour matching to the reference BVM-X300
The PVM-X550 55-inch* 4K OLED picture monitor offers a large 3840x2160 pixels high grade picture for critical
monitoring performance. This high performance TRIMASTER EL™ OLED monitor gives you professional quality black
performance, colour reproduction, quick pixel response, and accurate signal processing. Quad view display allows
individual settings for each display. In addition, the PVM-X550 supports High Dynamic Range display and a wide
colour gamut supporting DCI-P3 and most of the ITU-R BT.2020 standard. The monitor’s thin bezel edges and
lightweight makes it ideal for wall mounting and as a companion client monitor for the BVM-X300 for colour
grading and quality control.

High Brightness Mode (Availability: Beginning of CY2018)
As 4K and HDR production increases rapidly in the industry, the needs for 4K and HDR picture evaluation
are accelerated. To meet those industry demands, Sony enhances PVM-X550 with firmware updates of
High Brightness Mode which delivers higher dynamic range to reproduce more realistic colour.
Quad view display
The PVM-X550 provides quad view display, with Individual settings of EOTF(SDR/HDR), colour space, Transfer
Matrix, Color Temperature, contrast, brightness, SDI/HDMI, RGB/YCBCR, etc. for each display.
High Dynamic Range
Offers never-seen-before image reproduction – the black is black, and peak brightness can be
reproduced more realistically with colours that are typically saturated in a conventional standard dynamic
range. EOTFs of S-Log3, S-Log2, SMPTE ST2084, S-Log3(Live HDR) and ITU-R BT.2100(HLG) are supported.
Supports DCI P3 and ITU-R BT.2020 wide colour spaces
The PVM-X550 has a wide colour gamut supporting to DCI-P3 and most of the ITU-R BT.2020 standard*.
Furthermore, it supports S-GAMUT3.cine and S-GAMUT3.
* The PVM-X550 does not conform to DCI-P3 or the BT.2020 colour space in full.
Multi-format capability
The PVM-X550 can display various formats, such as 4K, 2K, UHD and HD at various frame rates.
High Brightness Mode (Availability: Beginning of CY2018)
HDR Peak Luminance to be over 180% higher than the current firmware version1.1 with upgradable solution.
Accuracy of brightness and saturation is carefully controlled by the Sony designed 12bit engine for OLED,
which is commonly used in the BVM series and PVM-X550
The unique quad view display mode ensures individual settings of EOTF, colour gamut, etc. on each
quadrant with the higher HDR brightness.
High Dynamic Range display
In addition to the intrinsic high-contrast performance of the TRIMASTER EL™ OLED panel, this monitor provides
High Dynamic Range display. This offers never-seen-before image reproduction – the black is black, and
peak brightness can be reproduced more realistically with colours that are typically saturated in a
conventional standard dynamic range. This mode can brilliantly express sparkling town lights and stars in the
night sky.
Supports DCI P3 and ITU-R BT.2020 wide colour spaces
The PVM-X550 supports industry‑leading wide colour gamuts, including the DCI‑P3 colour gamut and ITU‑R
BT.2020 colour space*. S‑GAMUT3.cine and S‑GAMUT3 colour gamuts are also supported to achieve
coherent cinematography production workflow with Sony’s 4K cinematography cameras. Gamut marker is
useful and helpful for wide colour video production. You can check what colors are outside of the ITU-R
BT.709 or DCI-P3 in the ITU-R BT.2020.
* The PVM-X550 does not conform to DCI-P3 or the BT.2020 colour space in full.
3G-SDI Quad-link up to 4096 x 2160/48p 50p 60p, YCbCr 4:2:2 10-bit
This picture monitor supports both 2 Sample Interleave (2SI) and Square Division signals. It also supports
3G/HD-SDI single link and dual link for HD signals, and also 3G-SDI dual link for 4K/30p, 25p and 24p.
Accurate black and colour reproduction
A key advantage of TRIMASTER EL is the fact that each pixel can be turned completely off. No other display
technology is able to offer this. TRIMASTER EL is capable of reproducing accurate black with each individual
pixel, enabling users to evaluate each picture image faithfully to the signal.
Extremely wide viewing angle
Sony PVM-X550 OLED TRIMASTER EL provides a superior viewing angle performance as compared to other
flat panel technology available on the market. It makes easier to evaluate picture performance with a few
viewers to see the same colours and contrast.
Sony S-Log Gamma, SMPTE ST 2084 and HLG support
The PVM-X550 supports conventional 2.2, 2.4, 2.6, and CRT gamma. In addition, HDR (High Dynamic Range)
EOTF tables are provided for 2.4 (HDR), S-Log3(HDR), S-Log2 (HDR), SMPTE ST.2084 (HDR), S-Log3(Live HDR)
and ITU-R BT.2100(HLG)
