Sony LUMA LMD-1751W User's manual
The monitor stand is an optional.
Professional LCD Monitor
Inheriting the vital functions and performance of Sony’s highly acclaimed LUMA Series professional monitors,
the LMD-1751W is the latest enhancement to this series, an outstanding new high-grade LCD video monitor.
The LMD-1751W is a 17-inch (431 mm)*1 multi-format, rack-mountable HD video monitor, incorporating a
wide viewing angle LCD panel, high-purity color filters, sophisticated 10-bit signal processing, and Sony’s
unique ChromaTRU*2 color matching technology. With these qualities, the LMD-1751W delivers precise
images and accurate color reproduction for professional video monitoring. Added to this, a newly
supported white balance calibration function*3 allows quick and simple monitor adjustment and matching.
Another advantage of the LMD-1751W is its 3G-SDI interface. Using an optional 3G-SDI input adaptor,
the BKM-250TG, Y/Cb/Cr 4:2:2, 1080/50P, and 1080/60P signals are accepted with a single cable.
With the strength of Sony’s video expertise, the LMD-1751W is sure to meet a wide variety of picture
monitoring applications from broadcast and post-production to event production and mobile truck
installations, in both AC and DC operating environments.

*3 This function works with the combination of a PC and a commercially available calibration tool (X-Rite i1).
■■ Superb Picture Performance
Picture Delay Minimum Mode
Audio is just as much a part of the show as video, and timing
is always an issue.
Picture Delay Minimum mode is selectable to minimize I/P
conversion times for audio synchronization during editing.
By selecting “LINE DOUBLER” under “IP MODE”, the signal
processing (I/P conversion) period is less than one field
(0.5 frame).
High Purity Color Filters
The LMD-1751W uses precisely manufactured RGB color filters,
allowing the reproduction of colors with stunning depth and
saturation to create highly natural images.
Accurate Gamma and Stable White Balance
– ChromaTRU™ Color Processing
For an extra level of color-reproduction
accuracy, every LCD panel used in the
LMD-1751W is precisely color calibrated at the factory,
providing characteristics consistent with those of CRT displays.
The colorimetry of an LCD display, by nature, can exhibit
inaccurate R, G, B color coordinates and unbalanced R, G, B
gamma curves, which can make precise color matching
between multiple monitors a challenge. These are also the
primary reasons why LCD color tone can differ slightly from
CRT tone. The LMD-1751W solves this problem by precisely
calibrating each LCD panel’s light output so that the R, G, B
color coordinates are virtually the same as those of a CRT
A second calibration is further applied so that white balance
is maintained at a consistent color temperature throughout
all grayscale levels. The result of these precise calibrations is
excellent color reproduction reminiscent of Sony’s CRT displays.

Extremely Wide Viewing Angle
The LMD-1751W offers stable images when viewed from
various angles. It delivers wide viewing angles both horizontally
and vertically, with virtually no reduction in picture contrast,
color saturation, or hue shift. This allows precise images to be
clearly viewed from various positions and angles – a critical
requirement in professional video monitoring.
High-grade LUMA monitors are adjusted at the factory to
achieve optimized color, brightness, and gamma prior to
shipment. LCD monitor performance, however, typically
changes over time and requires regular recalibration to
maintain its original performance.
The LMD-1751W employs a software-based white balance
calibration function, which is called AutoWhiteBalance.
Combined with a commercially available calibration tool*,
this function enables simple adjustment of the monitor’s
white balance.

Sophisticated I/P Conversion
The LMD-1751W uses a motion-adaptive I/P-conversion process
to achieve conversion results that are optimized to the picture
content – whether the image is static or dynamic. Highly
accurate I/P conversion is provided regardless of signal
resolution including both HD and SD inputs.
In addition, the LMD-2451W
can be upgraded to
support white balance

■■ Input Versatility
■■ External Remote Control Function
Multi-format Signal Support – Up to 3G-SDI Input
The LMD-1751W has an external remote control capability for
input/output signal selection and adjustment of various items
via Ethernet (10BASE-T/100BASE-TX) connection. Up to 32
monitors and up to four control units can be connected via
Ethernet (10BASE-T/100BASE-TX) connection and controlled
remotely on the network. The user can control individual
monitors or monitor groups simply by entering the monitor ID
or group ID number. They can also execute the same
operation on all connected monitors, or put all connected
monitors into the same setup and adjustment state.
The LMD-1751W accepts almost any SD or HD video format,
both analog and digital: NTSC and PAL, component 480/60i
and 575/50i, progressive 480/60P and 576/50P, and highdefinition 1080/60i, 1080/50i, 720/60P, 1080/24P, 1080/25P,
1080/30P, 1080/24PsF, and 1080/25PsF. It also accepts
1080/50P and 1080/60P formats from a 3G-SDI input.
In addition to the standard interfaces that cover composite,
Y/C, RGB, and component, there are two optional input slots.
Input connector configuration can be easily modified by
installing optional input adaptors into these slots.
Analog and digital computer signals via the standard HD-15
and DVI-D*1 interfaces are also supported.
*1 Both 1080/50P and 1080/60P
signals are accepted. The images
are down-converted for display on
the LMD-1751W.
■■ Power-saving Mode
In Power-saving mode, when no input signal is received for
over a minute, the monitor goes into Standby mode and
consumes minimal power. This function prevents unnecessary
electrical consumption.
■■ Other Features
■■ Convenient Installation
Mounting Flexibility
Mountable in a 19-inch EIA Standard Rack
The LMD-1751W (7U high) can be rack mounted using an
optional MB-530 Mounting Bracket. Complying with VESA
standards, LMD-1751W monitors can be easily mounted on
walls and ceilings.
