Model Details

Professional applications

For professional applications such as colour grading, high-end editing, broadcasting and scientific research, Sony's leading edge Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) technology and signals processing technology ensures absolutely outstanding performance with the BVM-E250.

State-of-the-art product
Super Top Emission technology enhances OLED's intrinsic benefits to deliver outstanding black performance, a quick response with virtually no motion blur, and a wide colour gamut. An all-new 12-bit output digital signal processing engine provides a nonlinear cubic conversion colour-management system that delivers precise colour reproduction, stunning picture uniformity, smoother-than-ever gamma performance, and picture quality consistency.

Accepts computer signals via HDMI
The BVM-E250 accepts various computer signals input up to 1920 x 1080 through its HDMI connector. It is also equipped with Digital Cinema features.


  • Superb Picture Performance

    Sony TRIMASTER EL technology combines the ultimate performance of Sony OLED display with the highly sophisticated TRIMASTER technology to provide the highest level of picture performance:

    • Accurate Black Reproduction
    • High purity and accurate colour reproduction
    • Quick response with virtually no motion blur
    • High Contrast Performance

  • Super Top Emission™ technology

    Sony's Super Top Emission™ technology has a micro-cavity structure which incorporates colour filters. The micro-cavity structure uses an optical resonance effect to enhance colour purity and improve light-emission efficiency. In addition, the colour filter of each RGB further enhances the colour purity of emitted light, and reduces ambient light reflection.

  • Ultimate Display Engine

    High-precision signal processing engine has been developed to fulfil the reference monitor criteria and is optimized to maximize OLED panel performance. This engine incorporates 12-bit output accuracy at each process, and provides both a high quality I/P conversion algorithm and a highly accurate colour management system.

  • Multi-format signal support

    The BVM-E250 monitor can accept almost any SD or HD video format, both analogue and digital, and variable computer signals up to 1920 × 1080. In addition to the standard inputs, four option board slots are offered to configure this monitor according to different user needs.

  • Versatile video inputs

    This monitor is equipped as standard with two 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs, an HDMI (with HDCP) input and a Displayport* for future expansion. In addition, four option ports are available.
    * DisplayPort input will be supported from monitor software version 1.1 or later.

  • Four Slots for Optional Video Input Decoders

    The monitor can accept up to four optional video input boards simultaneously. Available formats include analogue, composite, Y/C, components, RGB and digital 3G/HD/SD SDI.

  • 3D signal analyzing functions (3D signal input, 2D display)

    By installing the optional BKM-250TG 3G/HD-SDI input adaptor*, the BVM-E250 can support a variety of 3D signal analyzes. The 3D signals* are displayed in 2D mode.

    • Difference display
    • Checkerboard display
    • L/R switch display
    • Horopter check display
    • Flip H display

    * Requires the BKM-250TG 3G-SDI input adaptor (serial number 7200001 or later). 3D signals are not displayed in stereoscopic view.

  • Auto White Balance

    The colour temperature and white balance of BVM-E and F Series monitors can be automatically adjusted by the Auto White Balance function using specified colour temperature probes, such as the Konica Minolta CA-210, CS-200, DK-Technologies PM5639/06, and X-Rite i1 (Eye-One) Pro.

  • High Quality I/P Conversion Technology

    The BVM-E250 monitor uses a sophisticated I/P conversion technique that keeps artefacts that are often seen in flat panel displays to a minimum such as edge jaggedness, conversion errors, etc.

  • Low video delay

    The BVM-E250 display engine ensures a picture delay that is less than one field.

  • Panel Calibration

    Every BVM-E250 monitor is carefully calibrated at the factory on an individual basis, providing a high level of accuracy and stability for characteristics such as gamma and uniformity.

  • Colour Feedback System

    Using a colour feedback system, the BVM-E250 monitor achieves the stability required for Broadcast critical monitoring applications.

  • Interlaced Display Mode

    Faithfully reproduces interlaced signals, emulating CRT monitors.

  • Picture

    The unique Picture

  • Gamut Error Display

    BVM-E250 master monitor incorporates a Gamut Error Display function that detects irregular signal input.

  • S-LOG Gamma

    BVM-E250 master monitor incorporates gamma tables to reproduce images captured using S-LOG Gamma technology. S-LOG gamma is a technique used in Sony's digital cinematography cameras that allows the full latitude of the camera CCD to be maintained throughout the production chain.

  • 2K Picture Resolution

    The 2048 Image Slide function of the BVM-E250 allows 2K resolution (2048 x 1080 pixels) images to be mapped, pixel-to-pixel, on the full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) panel without picture degradation.

  • HD Frame Capture Mode

    The HD Frame Capture function of the BVM-F Series allows a picture frame from the 3G-SDI and HD-SDI input to be captured and saved as a picture file on a Memory Stick™ media.

  • Separate Control unit with memory stick slot

    A separate control unit BKM-16R is available for the BVM-E250. It is equipped with a Memory Stick socket enables users to download and save all monitor set-ups such as input channel configuration, control preset adjustments, white balance settings and maintenance parameters.

  • Centralised Monitor-Wall Control

    Multiple monitors can be easily managed by a single control unit BKM-16R via an Ethernet connection.
