SONY BVM CRTs?
on Feb 21, 2008 at 3:30:15 pm

Does anyone know the core differences between these 2 CRT monitors? AFAIK they both have component only inputs and both Grade 1...

I've seen the BVM-2010P going for around £100-400GBP, but have a possible 20G1E I could possibly buy and wondered if anyone knows what the going rate is?..I can't seem to find any without the SDI board to compare.

Much Thanks.

Hi Jimmy, sorry I did post something but edit-deleted it after realizing that my info may not have served you in any way as you were asking about non north-american models (right?)

Yes, I think these are UK models..judging by the fact everyone I ask has never heard of them!

The 2010 I believe is the old style (15 years old) In North America they were the 1910.

Sony monitors with smpte phosphors have a U on the end and for ebu phorphors they have the E on the end BVM-20G1U or BVM-20G1E

There seem to be a few of these on the market with the move to HD. With no cards I would estimate the street price at $1000.00. These units require a remote to control them but I see you have one already so your controller can control something like 20 different monitors. The old BVM-1910/2010 has the controller built on the bottom of each unit.

I would definitely go for the newer monitor as the previous generation is just too old now. My BVM-1915 just fried itself over night here stinking up the place for weeks, fortunately no fires were started.

I finally got my hands on this monitor (20G1E), with control unit, for a song! Thanks for the info though Rennie - didn't know that about the phosphors. They're like gold dust these CRTs and for SD broadcast work an absolute must.

Anyone know if these monitors would be any use for viewing downconverted HD via a Decklink/AJA card?..Or is the colour space totally wrong for HD? I also have a HD Link SDI>DVI converter and may get a 23" Cinema display for true HD monitoring later on (minus the £3k+ for a 'proper' HD grading monitor) but just wondered if there's any point downconverting and viewing on the BVM in the meantime?

Thanks.
