Sony has unveiled the new 32" Trimaster 4K HDR monitor PVM-X3200, which is intended to complement the two models Sony Trimaster PVM-X2400 (with 24") and PVM-X1800 (with 18.4") introduced in January 2020.
The technical specifications of the Trimaster PVM-X3200 are largely similar to the PVM-X2400 (with 24") and PVM-X1800 models: like them, it has a high luminance of 1,000 nits, a color depth of 10-bit and supports ITU-R BT.2020, ITU-R BT.709, DCI-P3, S-GAMUT3 and S-GAMUT3 Cine color spaces - it covers 100% of the color space and its Wide Color Gamut of the 31" 4K-HDT HX reference monitor BVM-HX310.

The Sony Trimaster PVM-X3200 also features Black Detail High/Mid/Low, which contributes to accurate color reproduction by reducing backlight brightness in three steps to reproduce the correct colors and gradations in low-luminance areas. Also on board is Dynamic Contrast Drive, meant for checking the balance between bright and dark scenes. It dynamically changes backlight brightness to adapt to any scene or image when transferring images from the PVM-X3200 to existing Sony OLED monitors.
Its other functionality includes Quad-View, User 3D LUTs, and 4K/HD scopes with HDR scales, with Waveform, Vectorscope, and Audio Level Meter all displaying simultaneously. Per Quad-View, individual settings of EOTF (SDR/HDR), color space, transmission matrix, color temperature, contrast, brightness, user LUT, SDI/HDMI, and RGB/YCBCR can be displayed in four areas of the monitor simultaneously. The on-screen display (OSD) has been extensively modified to make operation faster and more intuitive.
In addition to an HDMI port, the Trimaster PVM-X3200 offers 12G/6G/3G/HD-SD-SDI (both input and output) with automatic configuration, as well as an Ethernet port, audio and headphone outputs, and USB 2.0 connectivity. With the optional PVML-HSX1 license (scheduled for June 2021), the PVM-X3200 supports internal conversion from HDR to SDR and from 4K to HD.
The Trimaster PVM-X3200 is scheduled to hit the market in October 2021 - a price has not yet been named by Sony, for orientation: the next smaller model PVM-X2400 currently costs around 12,500 Euros. more infos at bei pro.sony
