  • Dual Monitors for Edius question

    Can anyone make some suggestions on what is a good size for dual monitors for Edius? I have a 24" BenQ at the moment for single use and find it a bit cramped, but can't find exact same part number for sale anymore so will have to buy 2 new ones. Suggestions on LCD over LED, size and make would be appreciated.

    I have 2 x 24, which works well. I do not have room for bigger monitors.

      dual monitors

      The monitors don't need to be identical.
      I'm working on a 26" 1920*1200 as main monitor with a 19" 1280*1024 as secondary monitor.
      The 19" in big enough for the bin and the effects.
      The 26" has my video-windows and timeline.

        Old now, but I'm using Two Sharp LL 172G-B Monitors.
        No complaints at all. Timeline on the R.H.S monitor.

          Is the 24 big enough for the Timeline and Monitors? If so, just pickup another24 and put your bin structure and vector scope, etc in there.

            I am using two DEL 24" (1920x1200) monitors, work well for me. Main issue is to be sure your video card is a happy model that does two monitors well. I am using a KVM to allow sharing one keyboard, mouse and dual montores with two differnt machines, one is dedicated to video, and another for everything else.

            As to size, anythig 19" or larger should be fine. Using a pair of 17" would be marginal in my opinuion, but will work if you have good eyes and are not acclimitized to larger displays.

              I use one CRT and one LCD for computer display - but for correction of colours, I use Panasonic Broadcast monitor. CRT is 22" and LCD - 1280 x 1024 (20").

                Thanks everyone for the help, in the past (Liquid Edition days) I used 2 x 17" 4:3 aspect ratio monitors and spread the timeline across both, hence my thoughts on needing two monitors exactly the same (hopefully with thin bezels), but as is suggested I can keep my current 24" BenQ for timeline and previews and just get another similar sized one for bin and effects pallets, or maybe even spring for a new 24" LED and use that for Timeline and previews? :-)

                Will need to check with my system builder (I'm springing for a new Supermicro, 6 core dual Zeon 2.66Ghz, 12 GB Ram super fast thingy :-)) about the suggested GPU's ability to run dual monitors, hopefully he will be reading this?
