Sony’s new BVM-HX3110 Flagship 4K HDR Monitor

Sony has announced its new BVM-HX3110 Flagship 4K HDR Monitor. The BVM-HX3110 is part of Sony’s TRIMASTER HX Reference Monitor series and it boasts a new type of panel technology that is claimed to improve brightness while maintaining pristine black reproduction. It also has an optional fast-pixel response mode for reduced motion blur.

The BVM-HX3110 is a premium 30.5-inch 4K HDR professional monitor designed for critical evaluation, color grading, live production, and post-production. The BVM-HX3110 features a Sony-designed dual-layer anti-reflection LCD panel with Sony proprietary signal processing, and it supports a higher peak luminance of up to 4000cd/m² while maintaining no-compromise deep blacks.

Along with characteristics such as accurate color reproduction, picture consistency, and precision imaging, the BVM-HX3110 offers brighter specular highlights and introduces a new optional fast-pixel response mode for reduced motion blur.

It also provides a wider viewing angle, as well as standard IP interface for SMPTE ST2110 signals, to complement Sony’s Networked Live ecosystem.

The monitor’s new standard toolset incorporates Waveform Monitor/Vector Scope (WF/VS), false color, focus assist, closed captioning, 3D LUT processing, and quad and side-by-side viewing modes, among other valuable features. In addition to fast pixel response, supplemental benefits include support for JPEG-XS as well as Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) through optional licenses. Additional optional licenses enable tools such as HDR/SDR conversion and a user 3D LUT signal-output.

The BVM-HX3110 utilizes the same color gamut and works seamlessly alongside several of Sony’s monitors such as the complementary and well-established BVM-HX310, as well as the PVM-X and LMD-A series monitors. This also includes the just-announced LMD-A180, an 18.4-inch HD HDR high-grade picture monitor with a wide color gamut. Ideal for on-set monitoring, the LMD-A180 can also be rack-mounted for general monitoring purposes. It replaces the LMD-A170 monitor.

Optional licenses

  • BVML-F10: Fast response license
  • BVML-H10: HDR-SDR conversion output license
  • BVML-S10: Signal conversion output license
  • BVML-T10: 3D LUT output license
  • BVML-JD10: JPEG XS decoder license
  • BVML-SN10: SNMP license

A prototype of the BVM-HX3110 will be in Sony’s booth at NAB. It is expected to be available in November 2023.
