TRIMASTER realized Accurate colour reproduction, Precise imaging and Quality Picture Consistency
TRIMASTER is a design architecture for accurate picture reproduction, precise imaging and Quality picture consistency.
There are many advantages in the panel control and signal processing system such as fast processing, accurate linearizing of an input signal with Optical Electrical Transfer Function, accurate colour reproduction, etc.
Dynamic Contrast Drive and Black Detail High/Mid/Low
Dynamic Contrast Drive is a new backlight driving system that dynamically changes backlight luminance to adapt for a scene of a frame. You can conveniently check a total balance of highlights and low lights at a glance. This monitor can dynamically perform 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio by this drive.
From 12G-SDI and Quad-Link 3G-SDI to HD-SDI as well as HDMI
The PVM-X1800 can accept 12G-SDI from the latest device and it can input quad-link 3G-SDI and a single HD-SDI for a traditional device. This input utility is HDMI supports from 640x480/60P PC signal to 4096x2160/60P 4:2:2 YCBCR 12bit.
Both waveform monitor and vector scope can simultaneously be displayed with scales for either HDR or SDR. You can conveniently check both input signal level and output luminance by the HDR scales of the WFM. The waveform has three different displays of either Luminance, RGB/YCBCR parade or RGB/YCBCR overlay with the Gamut error display. The waveform of a specified line can also be displayed.
Unique quad view display with User 3D LUT
The PVM-X1800 provides a quad view display, with individual settings of EOTF (SDR/HDR), colour space, transfer matrix, colour temperature, contrast, brightness, SDI/HDMI, RGB/YCBCR, as well as User 3D LUTs for each display view.
New User Interface and Channel select button
OSD is largely changed and operating this monitor is quicker and more intuitive. Design of the menu allow you to review the settings and change some settings very quickly. The Channel select button protects an operator from inadvertent setting errors.
Handy features for field operation
DC 24V operation allows you to operate it outfield regardless of 18.4” large screen and 1000 cd/m2 very high luminance. The optional protection panel protects the premium LCD screen from inadvertent shocks. User 3D LUTs and Yoke-mount are also supported. Dynamic Contrast Drive is very useful for night-scene shooting.
Various mount capability
Regardless of 18.4-inch large screen size, the PVM-X1800 can be installed to 19inch EIA standard rack for studio and OB van uses. Yoke-mount and VESA mount are also convenient for installing it to a C stand for field use and a Desktop arm for editing.
Powerful stereo sound with audio muting
The PVM-X1800 incorporates Stereo speakers(2W+2W) with audio muting.
