Elite Media Technology completes its facilities with two Sony BVM-HX310 4K master monitors
Elite Media Technologies, a post-production facility in Santa Clarita, California that offers end-to-end post production services, including quality control, color grading, mastering, restoration, archive and distribution, has recently acquired two of Sony’s new BVM-HX310, 31-inch 4K HDR master monitors to complement their pre-existing BVM-X300, 30-inch 4K/HDR OLED reference monitors.
The new -HX310s work in conjunction with the -X300s in critical monitoring situations, mastering and quality control environments. In addition, they advance Elite’s HDR capabilities by offering support for wider color gamuts and providing up to 1,000 nits of full-screen brightness with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. In addition, the -HX310s can be color-matched to the incumbent -X300 monitors for accurate color reproduction throughout the facility.
“We use the BVM-HX310 for HDR, SDR 4K, UHD, 2K and HD color grading, as well as quality control and restoration. The monitors allow us to offer new services and provide a competitive edge by keeping us ahead of the technology curve – from evolving resolutions, to frame rates and color spaces” explains Nick Mairose, President and CEO.
“From a mastering QC standpoint, there are certain elements being shown on the Sony displays that we didn’t necessarily have insight into with past displays. In terms of quality and precision, we’re able to identify issues with greater ease, which is a benefit to our clients” adds Jason Altman, Vice President of Business Development and Operations.
