Unique SDI and HDMI sync-free side by side configurations
The LMD-B240 offers unique SDI and HDMI sync-free side by side configurations, whereby HD, SD, different frame rates, interlace, PsF and progressive pictures can by displayed on the same monitor.
23.8-inch screen size and Full HD resolution
The LMD- 23.8-inch LCD panel is ideal for a wide variety of applications, from a desk-top use to wall-mounting, arm-mounting and outfield shooting. The monitor can be rack-mounted with a MB-L22 rack mount bracket and is supplied with a LMD-A Series type stand. The Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution is approximately 200% higher resolution than Wide-XGA (1366 x 768 or 1280 x 768), giving you sharp focus for pixel-by-pixel checking of a Full HD video with no scaling.
Stylish lightweight and slim body
The monitor has a robust and stylish sharp-edges chassis. Lighter weight and lower power consumption saves you money as well as space and weight in digital galleries. The monitor is also ideal for stand-alone applications such as basic non-linear editing, audio control room, simple video monitoring or video shooting.
Simple all-in-one design style with front stereo speakers and natural ventilation system
The LMD-B240 inherits its all-in-one design style from the PVM-A and LMD-A series. It has the mandatory interfaces such as SDI, HDMI and composite video with stereo analogue audio. You can monitor the embedded audio signals of an SDI signal on the audio level meters of the screen. 2W+2W front stereo speakers are more powerful than a monaural speaker or a rear speaker system and you can get a good stereophonic effect from them. It can be powered by both AC and DC with no AC adaptor. Its natural ventilation system ensures there are no distracting cooling fan noise.
Easy operation in a group of Sony PVM/LMD monitors
With the same operability as the PVM-A and LMD-A Series, you can easily go back and forth when using monitors from the different ranges in one system. You can easily select the best monitor for a function, according to your feature, quality and budget requirements.
Selected essential functions for basic video operations
LMD-B240 offers vital functions, including markers, WFM/vector, audio level meters, timecode display, camera focus function, side by side, Flip H/V and on-screen tally. The user reset function makes it easy to return the monitor to the default setting very quickly. This is very useful if a user is not familiar with the monitor settings. The LMD-B240 can be also operated in one of 7 languages (Chinese, English, French, Germany, Italian, Japanese and Spanish).

Features

Unique SDI and HDMI sync-free side by side configurations
The LMD-B240 offers unique SDI and HDMI sync-free side by side configurations, whereby HD, SD, different frame rates, interlace, PsF and progressive pictures can by displayed on the same monitor. The signal processing of this feature is close to its low latency of a single screen. Focus assist and camera metadata can work with the main picture when using this function.
Lightweight and compact with lower power consumption
The LMD-B240 has a low 6.5kg mass (with stand), 6.4kg (monitor only) and 41W (maximum) power consumption.
Optimised low-latency I/P conversion
The I/P conversion system delivers automatically optimised signal processing according to input signals with low-latency (less than 0.5 field). This system helps users to edit and monitor for a live production.
Video input versatility
The LMD-B240 monitor is equipped with built-in standard input interfaces: HD/SD-SDI (x2), HDMI (HDCP) input (x1) and composite (x1).
Computer input versatility
Multiple computer signals can be received via an HDMI/DVI interface; the resolution range is from 640 x 480 to 1680 x 1050 pixels.
Waveform monitor, vector scope and audio level meter display
An input signal’s waveform and vector scope with an SDI-embedded 2-channel audio level meter can be displayed on screen. The waveform of a specified line can also be displayed. In conjunction with the Picture & Picture function, the waveform monitor and vector scope display can monitor two camera signals. In addition, an audio level meter can display the embedded audio signal from the SDI or HDMI input. It can display on screen the ch1 to ch8 or ch9 to ch16.
Front stereo speakers
2W+2W front stereo speakers are more powerful than a monaural speaker or a rear speaker system and you can get a good stereophonic effect from them. You can select audio sources from either embedded audio or analogue audio.
User-friendly operability and user interface

Consistent design with PVM/LMD-A Series monitors
LMD-B240 monitor offers the same functions and operability as PVM-A and LMD-A Series monitors and shares a consistent front control panel design. This means that these types of monitor can be operated and controlled in the same way.
User reset, key inhibit and function key configuration short-cuts
When multiple users share the same monitor, you need to reset it in a quick operation. User reset function quickly returns the unit to the default settings. Key inhibit protects the required settings of it from any inadvertent operations. For improving speed of the function key configuration, the user can take a short-cut to the settings menu screen by simply holding down one of the Function keys.
Camera focus function
The LMD-B240 monitor 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.
Time code function
LTC and VITC time code can be displayed at the top or bottom of the picture.
On-screen tally
The monitor is equipped with a three-colours red, green and yellow on-screen tally function. The position of the tally display can be changed to either the upper or lower section of the screen.
Flip functions
The Flip function turns the reversed image to a normal view, horizontally or vertically.
DC low power indicator
DC power supply is available in the range of 12V to 17V. The power indicator blinks when the DC power supply is low.
Wall-mount capability and LMD-A type stand
The LMD-B240 is supplied with a LMD-A type stand. It can also be rack mounted with the MB-L22 rack mount bracket.
