  • HD monitor?

    I currently edit with Edius Pro but I have purchased the NX Express card and Broadcast software. In the past I have used SVHS for my very expensive Sony production monitor with great results. This weekend I will switch over to the new HD system. Should I switch to a HD monitor or stay with my current SD display. If I go with an LCD HD monitor, does anyone have any suggestions for a 19"/22" model? Is the HD output board available outside of a package?

    You can't view HD footage on an SD monitor...however, you can edit in SD resolution with an NX SD preset and watch it on your broadcast monitor connected via Component (Much better than SVideo)...

    The Sony LUMA series is nice...check it out.

    If you want to save some money, you can grab a regular HDTV (1080p preffered) and connect it via Component from the NX Express. You need to calibrate the LCD.

    Also your NX already does HD output via the component connection so no need to buy any other hardware :)

      Stormdave,

      The NX Express package that I bought was short the card with component out. I have notified the seller but no response as yet. If I could buy the card separately, I would make the seller an offer! BTW, send me your phone number and I will put you on retainer as a consultant.

        Hi Dan,

        NX Express has to come with the component out card...if the box says NX Express and you paid for an NX Express and there is no component card, then your dealer is responsible for this.

        They don't sell the component card separately for the NX Express since both cards are PCIe.

        As far as being a consultant, not sure? :)
        PM me of what you mean...

        Thanks

          Take a look at the Panasonic BT-LH1700WE, 17" Widescreen HD/SD LCD Monitor, or maybe the BT-LH2600WE, 26" Widescreen HD/SD LCD MONITOR
          http://www.panasonic.com.au/products...?objectID=3350

          ...they pack a lot of monitor into the price.

          Beware the older Sony LUMA displays, they're very soft and generally not well liked ... so much so that Sony pulled them. However, since then they've relaunched the line. I haven't seen the new ones so can't comment on their quality.

            Andy,

            Ouch! The 17" model is $2700.00. Unless someone can suggest a better value, I guess that will be on my desk in two weeks.

            Thanks,
            Gunn

                  Quato 240m

                  You might wanna forget about my suggestion if you feel that 2700 US is allready too much, but i bought the Quato 240m, which is a little more than 3000 (Euro to be honest...which must be 5000 US these days..just kidding..).

                  I cant really fully suggest the monitor right now, as i am waiting for a firmware-update...but it seems to be what you wanna have when you really want to calibrate a monitor...i heard from a guy on a german apple-forum who callibrated an Eizo with some success, but the quato is definitly made for it.

                  Impotant fact is, that you can calibrate the LCD(which is 24" in this case..) from the hardware side...and you can..you can even chosse different profiles, which would be BT.709 for HD.

                  Only thing that doesnt look accurate to me right now is the exact callibration, specially for the blacks...i also must admit that the manual is quite crappy, but they seem to be working on all of this...if you got some more time, you could wait and i can give some more experience to you...

                    One of the features I really need is underscan as I need to be abale to see the whole picture for web streaming where there is no TV bezel. I am yet to find a prosumer HD display that has this feature.

                      we've found great success with marshall lcd monitors and with all our gear in a movable rack we just move the monitor from machine to machine depending on what is transpiring at the moment and who needs what.
