The BVM-L230 reference LCD monitor supersedes the market leading BVM-A series CRT models, heralding in a new era in broadcast post-production, D-Cinema production, evaluation and mastering. LCD displays are increasingly replacing CRT monitors in the professional arena due to their operational flexibility and lower overall ownership cost. In the BVM-L230 you will find a state-of-the-art product that surpasses the performance of its CRT predecessors.

A new Sony technology - TRIMASTER - has been employed in the BVM-L230 to produce an LCD monitor fully justifying the Reference designation. In developing TRIMASTER, the technology had to deliver accurate colour reproduction, precision imaging and absolute picture consistency. Sony designers have achieved this through three key devices: a high-grade customised LCD panel, a new precision high-purity LED backlight and a sophisticated display engine.

The high-grade customised LCD panel incorporates a 10-bit driver for smooth greyscale and colour transitions, and possesses a high frame rate capability allowing black-frame insertion for much reduced motion blur.

The new Precision Backlight system utilises High Purity LEDs - these deliver wide reference-standard colour space, uniformity control and colour stability through the auto white-balance circuitry.

The display engine uses two state-of-the-art ICs employing accurate 12-bit output processing - one dedicated to I/P conversion, producing the lowest possible artefact count, and one focussed on the highly accurate colour management system, delivering stability, consistency and precise standards emulation.

The BVM-L230 also benefits from new picture & picture and blend modes plus a new pixel zoom function for greater user flexibility.

With its exceptional performance and the clear LCD advantages of light weight, reduced depth and installation flexibility, the BVM-L230 is a deserving successor to CRT broadcast reference monitors.
