The Sony PVM-A250 is a slim and easy to set up Trimaster OLED panel offering fantastic colour accuracy and the widest viewing angle of any available professional flat panel broadcast monitor as of January 2014.
It is lighter than its predecessor, the PVM-2541A by a full 40% and as a result is easy for one person to carry by hand, hence the inclusion of a detachable carrying handle. It is also designed to withstand the rigours of daily use and has a tough double-coat paint finish and there is the option of a protection panel and corner bumpers (BKM-PP25 Protection Kit, available separately)
The PVM-A250 is now supplied with a screen protection kit, the kit is quickly attachable and detachable on-site Protection Panel that comes with corner bumpers that have finger / coin tighten screw. The Protection Panel also comes with a cleaning cloth (Fabric). This Protection panel is capable to use with a yoke-mount device.
Slim and lightweight – easy to carry
The PVM-A250 monitor achieves the industry-leading lightweight and slim body* – the PVM-A250 weighs 6.1 kg and is approx. 40 per cent thinner than the previous PVM-2541A model. This advantage allows users to widen their applications, including field monitoring and installation on the monitor wall and OB van.

Viewing angle innovation
The PVM-A250 incorporates the TRIMASTER EL™ OLED panel and offers the industry’s widest viewing angles for any professional flat-panel monitor on the market.
Accurate black reproduction
A key advantage of TRIMASTER EL is the fact that each pixel can be turned completely off. No other display technology is able to offer this. In comparison, TRIMASTER EL is capable of reproducing accurate black with each individual pixel, enabling users to evaluate each picture image faithfully to the signal.
Accurate colour reproduction
Sony’s OLED Super Top Emission technology not only offers a wide colour gamut with its high purity of the three primary colours, but also maintains this wide colour gamut throughout the entire luminance range. TRIMASTER EL system is truly an ideal display device for accurate picture reproduction. With OLED, users can see the details in the blacks, and see the colours as well.
Quick response with virtually no motion blur
The TRIMASTER EL grey-to-grey switching speed (measured in microseconds, μs) is much faster than that of the LCD (measured in milliseconds, ms).* This fast response benefits a variety of applications and uses, for example, in sports broadcasting.

BKM-PP25 protection kit
The BKM-PP25 accessory kit provides an AR-coated protection panel for the 25-inch monitor, along with corner bumpers to safeguard the monitor from scratches and impact.
Yoke-mount and VESA-mount capability
The PVM-A250 has screw holes on its side bezels for yoke-mounting. This type of mounting is convenient when installing a monitor to a camera crane or monitor stand in the field. There are also VESA mount 100-mm pitch holes on each monitor’s rear panel.
Room clearance connector panel design
The connector panel on the rear of each monitor is designed to allow sufficient cord clearance, despite of the unit’s slim dimension. This design allows space saving and cabling flexibility.
The PVM-A250 monitor is equipped with built-in standard input interfaces: 3G/HD/SD-SDI (x2), HDMI (HDCP) input (x1) and composite (x1).
Computer signal input capability
Multiple computer signals can be received via an HDMI/DVI interface; the resolution range is from 640 x 480 to 1680 x 1050 pixels.
Waveform monitor and vector scope display
An input signal’s waveform and vector scope with an SDIembedded 2-channel audio level meter can be displayed on screen. Both the waveform monitor and vector scope have various modes, including a zoom function (in an area of 0 to 20 IRE) with the waveform monitor, and a zoom function (in the central black area) with the vector scope, for adjusting white balance. The waveform of a specified line can also be displayed.
Camera focus function
The PVM-A250 monitor can control the aperture level of a video signal, and display images on the screen with sharpened edges to help camera focus operation. Further to this, the sharpened edges can be displayed in user-selectable colours (white, red, green, blue, and yellow) for more precise focusing.
Optimised low-latency I/P conversion
An I/P conversion system delivers automatically optimised signal processing according to input signals, with low latency (less than 0.5 field). This helps with editing and monitoring fast-moving images, and with synchronising audio with
Improved flicker free functionA flicker free function is available that offers an improvement in the default setting of brightness control.
On screen Tally
The monitor is equipped with a three-colours red, green and yellow On-screen Tally function.
Network control function
The PVM-A250 has a network control function that allows you to upgrade the monitor software by Ethernet very easily. The network capability will also be utilised for a central control of multiple units in a system environment.
Additional professional features
The monitor has a number of additional features, including: Time Code display (LTC/VITC-supported); safety area markers; closed caption display (EIA/CEA-608 and EIA/CEA-708, SDI only); 8-channel audio level meter display; and external remote control function.
