HDR-SDR conversion support*
The optional PVML-HSX1 HDR-SDR conversion license** enables the HDR-SDR conversion function of Sony PVM-X2400 and PVM-X1800 TRIMASTER high grade picture monitors (with V2.0 update) for use in a live production system.
The license activates 4K to HD downconversion; colour space conversion from ITU-R BT.2020 to ITU R BT.709; and OETF conversion from HDR EOTF S-Log3 (HDR), ITU-R BT.2100 (HLG), SMPTE ST 2084 to SDR EOTF 2.4.
It also allows output of converted pictures to another 4K or HD monitor from the Enhanced Monitor Output that supports 12G or 3G-SDI, even though an original 4K source is Quad link 3G-SDI. This function can be used at a remote site that can only be fed an HDR signal.
* PVM-X2400 and PVM-X1800 monitors must first be updated to V2.0.
** PVML-HSX1 HDR-SDR conversion license available separately. Monitor must be updated to V2.0 first. HDR-SDR conversion is activated via the USB port of the front control unit.
