Sony LMD-A170 17″ 3G/HD-SDI Monitor

The Sony LMD-A170 17″ 3G/HD-SDI monitor offers Full HD resolution, along with a lightweight and compact design. There is more than a 12% to 22% reduction in mass, 30% reduction in depth, and more than 25% reduction in power consumption, compared to Sony’s previous models. The Sony LMD-A170 offers the same user-interface design, convenient features, functions and operability as PVM-A Series OLED picture monitors. This consistency between the PVM-A and LMD-A Series brings great user benefits when both types of monitor are used in the same network. Furthermore, Sony’s LMD-A170 provides versatility for a wide range of user applications both in the studio and in the field. These include DC operation, wall mount, and yoke-mount holes, and an optional protection kit (BKM-PL17). In addition, the latest camera-linkage functions, such as camera and lens metadata display and a Picture and Picture function, provide the convenience of working efficiency both in the field and in the post process.
4K production features
The Sony LMD-A170 supports the ITU-R BT.2020 color space and accepts one of Quad-link 2SI 3G-SDI signals. To fully utilize its wide color gamut, the monitor offers DCI-P3 and S-GAMUT/S-GAMUT3/S-GAMUT3.cine settings, with proper EOTFs such as 2.6 gamma, S-Log3(SDR) and S-Log2(SDR).
Enhanced field application features
The Sony LMD-A170 is ideal for field applications, with sync-free side-by-side, false color and audio muting functions. You can monitor two pictures without synchronization. False color allows you to check the exposure level of a camera at a glance from a distance. Audio muting helps you start shooting quickly.
Graphics applications features
This monitor accepts a computer signal through HDMI. To fully utilize its wide color gamut, the monitor also offers Adobe RGB and sRGB settings in color space, and D50 preset in color temperature.
