Sony Launches Next-generation 4K HDR
Monitors in TRIMASTER Series
S

ony Electronics has announced
U.S. availability of a new set of
high-grade 4K HDR monitors from
Sony's TRIMASTER range.
The
PVM-X2400
(24-inch)
and the PVM-X1800 (18.4-inch)
professional 4K HDR monitors first unveiled and demonstrated
at the BSC Expo 2020 in London
- set new standards in professional
monitor performance.
The
monitors
provide
high
picture quality and accurate colour
reproduction thanks to Sony's
specified and dedicated panels, which
offer ultra-high definition with a
resolution of 3840 × 2160 pixels and
an impressive brightness of all-white
luminance of 1000 cd/m2.
For optimum film production,
their wide colour gamut matches
the
industry-leading
BVM-HX310
TRIMASTER HX master monitor. This
means both monitors offer accurate
colour reproduction and precise
greyscale, giving filmmakers a reliable

PVM-X 2400 and PVM-X 1800
4K HDR Monitors

tool to help make critical imaging
decisions and faithful colour matching
throughout the workflow. With its
compact size and high portability,
the monitors are aimed to expand
footprints in 4K HDR production,
including versatile applications such
as on-set monitoring, non-linear video
editing, studio wall monitoring, and
rack-mount monitoring in OB trucks or
machine rooms.
The monitors also feature new Black
Detail High/Mid/Low, which helps
maintain accurate colour reproduction

by reducing the brightness of the
backlight to reproduce the correct
colours and gradations in lowluminance areas. Another new
function, Dynamic Contrast Drive,
dynamically
changes
backlight
luminance to adapt to each scene or
frame when transferring images from
PVM-X2400/X1800 to existing Sony
OLED monitors. This functionality
allows filmmakers to check the
highlight and low light balance of the
contents with both bright and dark
scenes.

Key features of the new reference
monitors include:
*	 TRIMASTER technology offering
precise greyscale and accurate colour
reproduction, achieving 100 percent
colour gamut coverage of the industryleading BVM-HX310 master monitor;
*	 4K resolution of 3840 × 2160
pixels and HDR capabilities;
*	 New Black Detail High/Mid/Low
to reproduce the correct colours and
gradations in low-luminance areas;
*	 Dynamic contrast ratio of
1,000,000:1 by Dynamic Contrast
Drive, a new backlight driving system
that dynamically changes the backlight
luminance to adapt for each frame of a
scene;
*	 4K/HD scopes with HDR scales
that are Waveform/Vector;
*	 Quad View display and User 3D
LUT functionality;
*	 12G/6G/3G/HD-SDI with auto
configuration.
The PVM-X2400 and the PVM-X1800
professional 4K HDR monitors will be
available in the U.S. starting in July
2020.

Brainstorm Releases Suite 4
B

rainstorm
has
released
Brainstorm Suite 4, a major
upgrade to its InfinitySet, Aston and
eStudio solutions.
In addition to a tighter integration
and control of Unreal Engine, Suite
4 provides advanced features like
simultaneous
renders,
multiple
outputs and additional hardware
support. With Suite 4, InfinitySet
and Aston greatly improve their
capabilities for creating high-quality
photorealistic content, no matter if
it is for real-time graphics, virtual
sets, augmented reality or broadcast
workflows in any resolution.
Suite 4 introduces a key feature that
changes how Aston and InfinitySet
deal with broadcast workflows,
while providing additional playout
possibilities. It is called LAYERS, and
its foundation rests on the capability
of Brainstorm Suite 4 for creating
Simultaneous Multiple Independent
Renders using a single workstation.
Ricardo Montesa, Brainstorm's CEO
and Founder says: "With Suite 4 we
have made a significant leap forward
on what can be achieved in virtual

sets, augmented reality and realtime broadcast motion graphics. We
have worked hard to match and even
surpass the high-end requirements of
our customers. So now the integration
of InfinitySet with Unreal Engine is
even tighter, and we have included
industry-unique features like the
Unreal Engine Controller, that can
fully control not only the Unreal
Engine projects but also its blueprints,
objects and properties directly from
InfinitySet's own interface. We're
very excited with this release and the
response received from our customers
is excellent."
InfinitySet 4 also gains major
updates to the rendering features
and especially the management and
compatibility with the Unreal Engine.
Another key development is that
InfinitySet now features an Unrealnative behaviour, so InfinitySet users
can achieve anything Unreal Engine
provides in a workflow fully integrated
into Unreal.
Brainstorm is also introducing the
InfinitySet Unreal Engine Controller,
a new module that directly controls

Unreal Engine from InfinitySet's own
interface, adding a user-friendly, live
production-oriented control interface.
The Unreal Engine Controller can
identify any blueprints, objects and
properties in the UE project, and
control them directly from InfinitySet.
InfinitySet Unreal Engine Controller
provides additional compatibility for
video hardware devices not available
in Unreal Engine, including support
and driver updates for video IO boards
and virtually any tracking device.
Aston 4, Brainstorm's 2D/3D motion
graphics creation, CG and playout

'Significant leap forward'
Brainstorm Suite 4

solution, also gains a number of
enhancements that further improve
its capabilities, such as shader-based
2D fonts or the ability to open multiple
projects simultaneously for playout.
Brainstorm is also introducing Web
Controller, an independent, HTML5based application designed to control
the Playout mode of InfinitySet from
a remote computer, using Ethernet
protocols.
The production version of Brainstorm
Suite 4 will be demonstrated at the
Brainstorm booth at NAB 2020.
