The PVM-741 is a high-performance, 7.4-inch (188-mm)* OLED (organic light-emitting diode) monitor backed by TRIMASTER EL™ technology. By optimally combining Sony's OLED display panel technology with a 10-bit panel driver and Sony’s processing technology, the PVM-741 monitor achieves superb picture quality – unparalleled black performance, a wide colour gamut, and quick pixel response with virtually no motion blur.
Smart features for a wide range of applications
In addition to this picture performance, the PVM-741 monitor’s hallmarks are its mobility and the smart and convenient features required for a small monitor – it has evolved in a steady, balanced way. The PVM-741 is ideal for a wide range of professional monitoring applications, including use in an studio camera monitoring, outside broadcast, on set acquisition for digital cinema, field production, editing studio and even research and development.

The PVM-741 can be operated with two-way power supplies:DC 12 V and AC via the attached dedicated AC adaptor.
With 3/8-inch and 1/4-inch screw holes on its base, the PVM-741 can be installed in a camera system. Also with the supplied arm-mount bracket fixed on the top, the PVM-741 can be installed in a camera arm.
Sony’s OLED with a 10-bit RGB driver
The PVM-741 Quarter HD resolution (960 x 540 pixels) and a 10-bit RGB driver, together with Sony’s Super Top Emission OLED display panel.
Superb black performance
Due to Sony’s OLED system, deep blacks can be accurately displayed and the black portion of an image is not degraded.
Quick response with blur-free motion
Because the OLED electroluminescent layer inherently responds to any electrical current input, it emits light immediately. By this mechanism, excellent quick response characteristics can be achieved in fast-motion images.
Multi-format signal interfaces with two 3G/HD/SD-SDI input capability
To provide flexibility the PVM-741 incorporates various video interfaces as standard, including 3G/HD/SD, SDI (x2) HDMI (x1) interface and Composite input (x1).
3G-SDI interface capability
With the 3G-SDI interface, PVM-741 accepts 1080/50p and 1080/60p formats, which is compliant with the SMPTE 425 standard, transmitting up to 4:2:2/10-bit 1080/60p and 1080/50p video data using one SDI cable. Also the PVM-741 accepts 10-bit 4:4:4 Y/Cb/Cr and 4:4:4 RGB of 3G-SDI signals for various formats. When an upgrade to these 1080/p systems is required, this single-link 3G-SDI system is an ideal, future-proof solution.
8-ch Audio Level Meter Display
When an SDI interface is connected, the embedded audio level can be displayed on screen with an 8-channel audio level meter.
HDMI interface for a wide range of applications
HDMI connectivity can expand user’s convenience and applications. Forexample, the PVM-741 monitor can connect with professional video systemsuch as XDCAM, XDCAM-EX, NXCAM, and HDV. Furthermore, consumer video products like a Blu-ray and a digital camera are also connectable. These articles are ideal for Blu-ray video authoring and digital photo image previews.
Waveform monitor and vector scope display
The combination of the vector scope and waveform monitor functions helps users in field production without additional measurement equipment.
Time Code display
PVM-741 can display on screen a Time Code – either LTC or VITC is selectable.
The PVM-741 has a feature to flip the picture without frame delay, horizontally, vertically or both horizontally and vertically. This feature is useful for 3D acquisition system with 3D rig camera.
Camera focus functions
The PVM-741 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.
This camera focus function can even be enhanced when combined with native scan mode.
Color temperatures of D93, D65, or a USER preset value can be selected.
Auto white adjustment
The PVM-741 monitor employs a software-based color temperature (white balance) calibration function, which is called “Monitor_AutoWhiteAdjustment”. Combined with a PC and commercially available calibration tools*, this function enables simple adjustment of the monitor’s white balance.

Sophisticated I/P conversion
PVM-741 uses a motion-adaptive I/P-conversion process to achieve conversion results that are optimised to the picture content – whether the image is static or dynamic. Highly accurate I/P conversion of both HD and SD inputs, is provided regardless of signal resolution.
I/P mode selection
PVM-741 provides four I/P modes so that users can select the most suitable mode for each purpose.
Centre marker and aspect markers
The PVM-741 can display a centre marker and aspect markers. The brightness of these markers can be selected from two different levels: grey and dark grey. Users can also select a grey mat to fill the outer area of the aspect markers.
External remote control function
PVM-741 monitor has an external remote control capability for input/output signal selection and adjustment of various items via Ethernet (10BASE-T/100BASE-TX) connection. Up to 32 monitors and up to four BKM16R control units can be connected via Ethernet connection and controlled remotely on the network. Also this monitor supports some functions of the BKM-16R – an optional remote control unit for BVM-E/BVM-F/BVM-L/PVM-L Series monitors – such as the power on/off switch and the Input Select function.*
* The PVM-741 does not support all BKM-16R functions.
The closed caption information embedded in EIA/CEA-608 and EIA/CEA-708 can be decoded for display.
User-friendly control panel design
By assigning monitor functions to each of its seven function buttons, users can customise the PVM-741 for a specific application or usage such as field or studio use. Seven functions can be allocated to the assignable buttons. Button lights are dimmable and indicator lights are on/off switchable. This function allows users to easily operate a monitoring in a dark environment without interference of these lights.
Retractable carrying handle
The PVM-741 provides a retractable carrying handle as a supplied accessory. With this carrying handle, users find it easy to hand carry this superb OLED monitor
The PVM-741 is 3.8U high and half-rack wide. Using the optional MB-531 mounting bracket with a 10-degree-forward and 10-degree-backward nonstop-tilt capability, two units can be installed side by side in a 19-inch EIA standard rack.
Robust, light-weight, and compact body
Incorporating a light-weight and compact aluminium diecast body with a detachable AR-coated protection panel,this model is flexible enough to change style according to user requirements: with or without stand (which is easily detachable), tilted on a stand (15-degree slant), rack-mounted, or set on a camera pedestal.
