The PVM20L2 Color Video Monitor features a 600 TVL Trinitron® CRT with P22 phosphors to provide clear and precise images. The PVM20L2 is equipped with input connectors for analog component (Y/R-Y/B-Y), RGB, Y/C and composite signals. The slot-in structure in the rear panel allows an optional input card for SDI, SDTI-CP, or additional analog inputs. The monitor incorporates conventional operational functions such as 4:3/16:9 switching capability, Blue Only Mode, switchable color temperature (D65, D93, user); Underscan and Auto/Manual degaussing. The window-type on screen menus allow for easy monitor adjustment and operation and is available in six languages.

The BVM-D and PVM-L series monitors require a rather rare input board for RGB/YPbPr inputs: the CRT:BKM-129X. It is recommended to instead get Martin Hejnfelt's BKM-129X clone (source files) as it is much cheaper and built with modern parts.
