The BVM E251 24.5" TRIMASTER EL OLED Critical Reference Monitor from Sony features a wide viewing angle for critical picture evaluation in the studio and on-set for professional applications such as color grading, high-end editing, broadcasting and scientific research. Sony’s leading edge Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) technology and signal processing technology ensures high performance with the BVM-E171. It allows several people to evaluate the image with accuracy at the same time, increasing the monitor’s versatility in top end monitoring solutions.


Top Emission technology enhances OLED's benefits to deliver outstanding black performance, a quick response time with virtually no motion blur, and a wide color gamut. A 12-bit output digital signal processing engine provides a non-linear cubic conversion color-management system that delivers precise color reproduction, picture uniformity, gamma performance, and picture quality consistency.

Flicker Free Mode

The TRIMASTER EL OLED panel's quick response and scan-driving performance delivers remarkable picture quality with virtually no motion blur. However, there is a possibility that flicker is just visible especially when a lower frequency signal is displayed (24p, 24PsF, and 50i). To remove visible flicker, the BVM E251 is equipped with flicker-free mode.
