LMD-2041W (LMD2041W)

20-inch Wide Screen High Grade LCD Monitor


Compact, slim bezel design for flexible installation
The compact LMD-2041W has a slim, robust aluminium bezel and is specifically designed to suit a monitor-wall installation in studios and outside broadcast (OB) vans. It is also ideal for a wide variety of professional video and industrial image-monitoring applications where critical picture quality and professional features are required.

High performance LCD panel

The 20-inch (1600 x 900 pixels) high performance LCD panel reproduces lifelike images and stunning colours with a wide viewing angle. ChromaTRU™ colour matching technology helps ensure display consistency – ideal for multi-monitor systems. The LMD-2041W also features built-in SDI (3G/HD/SD), composite, and HDMI interfaces for operational versatility.


Superb picture performance and colour consistency
The 20-inch full-HD resolution (1600 x 900 pixels) high-performance LCD panel reproduces lifelike precise images and accurate colour. Sony's unique ChromaTRU™ colour matching technology and 10-bit signal processing delivers a stunning smooth grey scale, emulating the colours and gammas of broadcast-standard CRT monitors. Users can select the required colour space within this gamut. In addition, ChromaTRU™ technology provides these monitors with colour consistency essential for a multi-monitor system, and offers the best solution for a monitor-wall installation.
Extremely wide viewing angle
IPS panel technology ensures the LMD-2041W offers exceptional horizontal and vertical viewing angles – ideal for group viewing.
Compact design for monitor-wall installation
The LMD-2041W has a compact body with a lightweight, robust aluminium slim bezel – making it an ideal choice for monitor-wall installation, both in studio sub-control rooms and OB vans.
Desktop editing and office viewing
The LMD-2041W can be used as a desktop monitor both for editing and office viewing with supplied monitor feet. There is also an optional SU-561 monitor stand which provides a height and tilt adjustment feature.
Built-in input versatility
The LMD-2041W has built-in standard input interfaces: two SDI (3G/HD/SD-SDI), one HDMI and one analogue composite input.
Easy-to-use control panel
A rotary-type switch and seven function-assignable buttons allow users speedy and intuitive operation, even in dark environments, thanks to LED indicators (which can be switched on/off). The control panel of the LMD-2041W can be covered with a supplied control panel cover to simplify its appearance on a monitor wall.
In-Monitor Display (IMD) function for source monitoring
The LMD-2041W supports the TSL UMD protocol and can display on screen two tally lamps and dynamic text information received via Ethernet. Up to 16 unicode characters* can be displayed. IMD text can be positioned at the top or bottom of the screen. Both the text colour and the tally lamp colour are separately selectable either in a commanded colour or in one of eight preinstalled colours.  

* English alphabets, numbers, symbolic codes, and Japanese letters.
Waveform monitor, audio level meter** and time code display
The input signal's waveform with a 2-channel audio level meter can be displayed on screen. When an SDI interface is connected, the embedded audio level can be displayed on screen with an 8-channel audio level meter. A time code superimposed on SDI signals can be displayed on screen. Users can select either LTC or VITC.

** The audio level meter function works only when receiving SDI-embedded audio signals.
External remote control function
The LMD-2041W 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 control units can be connected via Ethernet and controlled remotely.
Scan mode selection
Scan size can be selected from normal scan (0%), over scan (5%), and native scan modes***. The aspect ratio can be switched between 16:9 and 4:3 according to the input signal.

*** Native Scan modes work on specific signal formats.
Auto white balance calibration
Auto white balance calibration provides simple adjustment white balance in combination with a PC and the commercially available calibration tool (X-Rite i1Pro series).
