LMD-230W Sony LCD Monitor
Sony Professional 23 inch LCD Monitor
In perfect cosmetic and working condition.
This is a Sony LMD-230W 23" LCD Monitor
and MEU-WX1 MultiFormat Engine Unit
with a BKM-220D SDI Input Card.
Features of LMD-230W
• Complying with the VESA standard, LMD-230W can easily be mounted on a wall or from a ceiling. With the optional monitor stand, LMD-230 can be neatly laid out on the desk. And with the stand, the monitor can be tilted and the height can be adjusted to another conventional CRT monitor.
• Multi-format Engine Unit for LCD monitors LMD-230W for broadcasters.
• Two-piece LCD monitor consisting of LCD monitor unit and signal-processing unit enables easy installation.
• SDI signals, HDSDI, PC and analog component signals can be accepted when an optional input adaptor is attached.
• Lightweight and thin.
Flat Panel Design with Separate Signal-Processing Unit
LUMA Series monitors have been designed to make installation as easy and as flexible as possible. They consist of extremely thin and lightweight LCD displays, and a highly advanced signal-processing unit (Multiformat Engine Unit (MEU-WX1)) that can accept almost any type of HD or SD input format.
This ‘separate unit’ approach not only allows the LCD display to be made as thin and as lightweight as possible, but it also allows flexible placement of monitor controls and interface connectors. The LCD display and Multiformat Engine Unit are connected via a single multi-pin cable*, up to 10 meters long (optional), which avoids having multiple cables hanging from the LCD displays themselves. The optional SU-558 monitor stand has a biaxial joint in its neck assembly, allowing the LCD displays to be positioned at various heights and tilt angles – meeting a wide range of application needs.
Superb Picture Performance
Sophisticated I/P Conversion using X-Algorithm Handling interlace signals with LCD monitors can be a difficult task, but with the LUMA Series, this concern is a thing of the past. This is because they combine sophisticated I/P conversion with Sony’s original X-Algorithm technology to obtain the best results for both static and moving areas of the picture. With conventional LCD monitors, interlace signals are displayed on the progressive LCD pixel array by combining two adjacent picture fields into one picture frame. Since each frame is formed by two fields, this method is effective for static areas of the image, but it can often result in jagged shape noise along the oblique direction of fast-moving objects. To avoid this, the LUMA Series uses a picture adaptive Still Mode and Motion Mode in the I/P conversion process. By comparison of the pixels in the proceeding and following fields, the I/P conversion will operate in either Still or Motion Mode. For pixels where motion is not detected, the I/P conversion will simply copy pixels from the proceeding field to create the absent scanning line. In contrast, when motion is detected, picture frames are created from interlace signals on a field basis by interpolating every other line. Sony’s innovative X-Algorithm technology intelligently compares the pixels above, below, and in the diagonal direction of the moving picture part, and then inserts a natural scanning line. The direct result of this adaptive I/P conversion is much smoother image reproduction for pictures both in the still and moving areas.
AR-Coated Protection Panel
The LCD panels of the LUMA Series use a robust AR-coated protection layer, which minimizes the chance of scratching the panel during transportation. The AR coating has two unique characteristics: it provides a high transmission rate of the internal light source to keep the picture as bright as possible, while keeping reflection from ambient light to a minimum. As a result, when used in bright lighting conditions, high contrast is still maintained even in dark areas of the picture – a clear benefit over CRT monitors. Excellent Brightness and Contrast While conventional LCD monitors can tend to be dark, the LUMA Series provides high-brightness and high-contrast images by use of super-wide aperture LCD panels. In addition, the use of precisely manufactured RGB color filters allows these monitors to reproduce colors with stunning depth and saturation – creating highly natural images. Wide Viewing Angle The LCD panels used in the LUMA Series have a wide viewing angle of 170 degrees, horizontally and vertically, with minimal reduction in picture contrast. This allows images to be viewed from various positions and angles.
Multi-Format Signal Support LUMA Series monitors are designed for operations today, and for DTV operations tomorrow. The MEU-WX1 can accept almost any SD or HD video format, both analog and digital. These include composite NTSC and PAL, component 480/60I and 575/50I, progressive 480/60P and 576/50P, and high-definition 1080/50I, 1080/60I, and 720/60P. The MEU-WX1 can also accept 1080/24PsF and 1080/25PsF. The MEU-WX1 comes equipped with typical analog interfaces as standard, including composite (NTSC/PAL), component (525/625), RGB, and Y/C* 1. Digital interfaces are offered as optional boards to meet budgetary and user needs. To keep the unit compact in size (1RU high), the analog inputs share the same four BNC connectors, which all provide loop-through capability. The MEU-WX1 additionally accepts input from various types of analog computer signals. With its high-performance scan converter, it can accept input signals from VGA to SXGA* 2.
Advanced Marker Settings The LUMA Series can display various area markers, including a center marker, aspect markers, and a safety zone marker. The brightness of these markers can be selected from three different levels, white, gray, and dark gray. What’s more, users can select either a black or gray matte to fill the outer area of the aspect markers. These flexible marker controls, together with the choice of many different aspect markers, make the LUMA Series an extremely convenient display device for a variety of shooting scenarios – from standard video acquisition to digital cinematography.
