Sony LMD-A220 22-inch cost-effective lightweight Full HD LCD monitor for studio and field use


Lightweight and slim Full HD (1920 x 1080) LMD-A Series monitor with an excellent cost-performance ratio

The LMD-A220 22-inch LMD-A Series LCD monitor offers Full HD resolution, along with a lightweight and compact design. There is more than a 12% to 22% reduction in mass, 30% reduction in depth, and more than 25% reduction in power consumption, compared to Sony’s previous models. The LMD-A Series offers the same user-interface design, convenient features, functions and operability as PVM-A Series OLED picture monitors. This consistency between the PVM-A and LMD-A Series brings great user benefits when both types of monitor are used in the same network. Furthermore, LMD-A Series monitors provide versatility for a wide range of user applications both in the studio and in the field. These include DC operation, VESA mount and yoke-mount holes.

  • Full HD picture monitor with excellent cost-performance ratio

    Incorporates a 22-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) LCD panel and emulates broadcast standards (ITU-R BT.709, EBU, and SMPTE-C).

  • Lightweight and slim design

    More than a 12% to 22% reduction in mass, 30% reduction in depth, and more than 25% reduction in power consumption, compared to Sony’s previous models.

  • Ideal for studio and field applications

    Features includes DC operation, VESA mount and yoke-mount holes.

  • Consistency with PVM-A Series monitors

    Both types of monitor can be operated and controlled in the same way.

  • Lightweight and compact with lower power consumption

    These monitors offer a design that is uniquely light and compact. Their weight is reduced by 12% to 22%, and depth by more than 30%, compared with predecessor models. Power consumption for these models is reduced by more than 25%. Users appreciate these convenient, cost-saving qualities.

  • 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.

  • Time code and In-Monitor Display (IMD) function

    With an external remote function via Ethernet, image source names and tally information can be displayed on screen. LMD-A Series monitors support the TSL system protocol. The IMD system can display European language text including umlaut and accent marks.

  • Waveform monitor and vector scope display

    These features enable users to monitor sources using the internal waveform and vector scope. In addition, LMD-A Series monitors provide some of the same evaluation tools as larger, dedicated equipment. Both the waveform monitor and the vector scope offer zoom functions for very precise signal adjustment (from zero to 20% video level), and both have two-channel audio monitoring.

  • Yoke-mount and VESA-mount capability

    The monitor includes screw holes on its side bezels for yoke mounting. This type of mounting is convenient when installing a monitor to a camera crane or monitor stand. There are also VESA-mount 100?mm pitch holes on each monitor’s rear panel. The optional MB-L22 mounting bracket (available separately) is designed to work with the LMD-A220. The optional SU-561 monitor stand (available separately) providing height and tilt function is also available for this model.

  • User-friendly operability and user interface (UI)

    The monitor has a number of additional features, including: Time Code display (LTC/VITC-supported); safety area markers, closed caption display (EIA/CEA-608 and EIA/CEA-708, SDI only), 8-channel audio level meter display, computer signal input capability via HDMI input and external remote control function.

  • Consistent design with PVM-A Series monitors

    LMD-A Series monitors offer the same functions and operability as PVM-A Series monitors and share a consistent front control panel design. This means that both types of monitor can be operated and controlled in the same way.

  • Input versatility

    LMD-A Series monitors are equipped with built?in standard input interfaces: 3G/HD/SD-SDI (x2) with active loop outputs (x2), HDMI (HDCP) input (x1), and composite (x1) with analogue loop output (x1).

  • Computer signal input capability

    Multiple computer signals can be received via an HDMI/DVI interface; the resolution range is from 640 x 480 to 1680 x 1050 pixels.

  • Camera focus function

    The LMD-A220 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.

  • On screen Tally

    The monitor is equipped with a three colours red, green and yellow On-screen Tally function.

  • Network control function

    The LMD-A220 has the network control function that allows you to upgrade the monitor software by Ethernet very easily. The network capability will also be utilised for a central control of multiple units in a system environment.

  • DC power operation

    The LMD-A220 is equipped with a DC power connector, which allows operation within 12V to 17V power range.
