  • What Monitor To Use???

    Hi All,

    Can any one tell me a reasonable priced monitor I can use to view HD footage from the component out from my NX board?

    Currently using a Sony PVM 1454QM, works great in SD component.

    You have a couple of choices here. First you can get an HD CRT monitor (big bucks) and use one monitor for both. Or you can keep your present monitor for SD work and get something like the Dell 24" monitor for HD viewing. This is what I do. There are several threads about different monitors.

      Thanks for that.

      One monitor I neally bought was a Sony Bravia 20" LCD set, nice picture - but in my opinion not as good as a CRT.

      Any thoughts?

        You can certainly find many who will stay say that CRT's still give the best performance and picture. I can't really argue with that. However, the industry is going to LCD/plasma type monitors in everything. And I do go with the school of thought that most people will be seeing the result on an LCD/plasma. I am very convinced that with careful setup of the LCD monitor you can achieve colors and quality that rival CRTs. Unless you have tons of money to spend (waste?) or your output is of the utmost critical nature, your wise bet is with an LCD for HD.

          I settled for a Fujitsu Plasma because it has far less lag than any affordable LCD

          the new Sony broadcast LCD Luma series have 0% lag and start at 11k upwards

            I would get a 1080p LCDTV for HD previews...well I'll be getting that pretty soon :)

            A 42" Bravia is on my list...it'll hang on my wall above my Dual monitors.

              I have both a CRt that will take 1080 and 720 and an LCD. There really isn't a good answer IMHO since who knows what is going to in the end display HD...my guess is CRTs are history but the fact remains they are the most accurate for CC...but what happens when that same material is shown on an LCD or Plasma or projected? They are going to look different even as between manufacturers. Get what you can afford and don't sweat it unless you are doing serious broadcast HD in which case you need big dollars for even the LCds that are broadcast accurate.

                Not to mention all the silly color modes "Sports, Cinema, etc" that consumer displays have that entirely change the color reproduction...

                  and not to mention the many consumers who have LCD or Plasma and have their DVD player preset to a 4:3 TV, the factory default

                  and not to mention the built in dynamic audio compression which is on by factory default, designed to prevent ads from sounding too loud, at the same time muffling regular programs

                  and DVD's becoming unreadable after a few years....

                  I never had as many issues to deal with in the 80's and 90's

                    Best is to use custom settings and use color bars to properly set up colors to be as accurate as you can be.

                    I don't think everyone here wants to put in $5k for a professional LCD monitor...I'm not one of them. I will keep my Sony PVM series monitor for color correction and use the LCD for "preview" purposes.

                      I've been looking at the LMD2450W Anton- it is only $7k AU or $8k with HDSDI I/O. I am seriously considering this because I am so bitterly disapointed with my Dell 24". But I would want to see the Luma first which might be rather hard to find a dealer with one on display.

                        I gave my Dell to the kids, it was to jittery for pal video display

                        I bought a small 14' Sony Luma for location use, it is great and 4:3 16/9 switchable

                        I was referring to the broadcast LCD series starting at 11k

                          I see. Have you seen these first hand? What would be the difference between them, they are both under Production monitors.

                            I have not seen it yet, but will soon

                            it has SDI and HD SDI inputs and uses far more accurate color technology similar to broadcast CRT, its price is 25,000 US dollars

                              I use a readily available and relatively cheap JVC Multi Standard monitor. These monitors are compatible with all major DTV formats (480i, 576i, 480p, 576p, 1080i, and 720p), and also accept signals in 1080/24psF cinema mode.

                              You can buy it with several options as per Sony Broadcast monitors. Mine is 19" with component / S video and composite inputs. What is really cool is the fact that you get SD out of the NX card as well as HD component - this means you see the very best possible results with you SD projects. With 900 line resolution this monitor makes any flat screen look pretty poor, and it is a must for colour correction and don't forget those field related issues that keep showing up - you simply can't see them on a flat panel. I have to admit that flat panels are getting better, but the whole issue is industry lead.

                              The 17" version costs £1450 ex tax in the UK - I don't think this is wasting money.
