    because it seems good with a "old" monitor Sony CRT hooked to HDstorm in YUV.

    the HDStorm output has briefly no signal while switching from p-review to timeline and as a result, 99% of LCD or Plasma will have a spasm attach whereas a CRT can cope with this

    this is a known issue and I have no idea if a fix is planned

    After some tests , the delay is :
    1. HDStorm + TV LCD + HDMI : 3 "
    2. HDStorm + TV LCD + YUV : 2 "
    3. HDStorm + CRT + YUV : 0 "
    4. NX + TV LCD + YUV : 1 "

    Sony KDL-32E5500

    For a new installation with HDstorm + , I test a monitor LCD : Sony KDL-32E5500.
    Picture is fine , but a big problem occurs :
    when, in Edius 5.5, I toggle from source monitor to recorder monitor (in Edius GUI), there is a black about 3 seconds, time to re-sync the Sony monitor.
    Link between HDstorm and Sony : HDMI or YUV

    If the HDstorm is linked to a CTR monitor in YUV : no problem.

    Is this "bug" specific to the Sony : KDL-32E5500 or is it the same effect on every LCD ?

    Yes , a plasma is better than LCD (I've a plasma Pana 50") , but it's too large to put on the desk near workstation.
    The new JVC DT-V24L1U is cheaper and the size (24") is pretty for general use.
    For SD , I keep my old Sony CRT.

    Thanks, Chris
    I used the upper model with SDI , too expensive, but very good colors, though a litlle dark.

    Just get this http://www.jvcpro.co.uk/jpe/en/globa....3140.140.html
    I think it will be good enough for your type of work.Andrew
    or JVC DT-V24L1U if SDI not required.

    Cheers Andrew! I actually had picked the JVC out from the B&H website after doing some research. A lot of people seem very happy with it.

    Thanks again...

    Chris

    BTW, you don't happen to know if the HD STORM card will work with the Asus Revolution mobo? It has no basic PCI slots. Just x16 ones. Will HD STORM fit into a PCI x 16?

    Thanks again for the replies.

    I am upgrading to HD in order to film a series of 20 one hour episodes of health and fitness programmes for www.bodyinbalance.tv

    The episodes will be condensed to produce a series of instructional DVDs (yoga, pilates, meditation etc).

    I'm doing all the shooting and editing. After this project, I want to be able to produce television commercials and corporate video media for the local tourism sector - internet video hotel brochures etc.

    So basically I need something that will allow me to produce consistent result for television. The broadcast format in St Lucia is SD NTSC, but the majority of my corporate work would be web based. I'll continue to do weddings, but that is obviously not colour critical!

    B&H suggested the eCinema LCD but I think it might be overkill, not to mention scarily expensive:

    I was looking at Sony's Luma LCDs

    But is this also overkill? I could afford it though . . .

    The only advantage of a "big" screen is you can sit further away. For small studios this is usually a pain in the neck. Given the same resolution (1920 x 1080) a 26" screen will be more than adequate and can be left on your desk.
    As a viewing screen for clients it doesn't matter much but colour grading needs to be intimate.

    Is this because of the size or being Panasonic ?
    I plan to get my self a 42" Panasonic plasma soon, for me it's more to hobby than professional production, but still have ocassionaly SD work to do, so this is semmi important to me.

    P.s Hobby with high standards that is :)

    So what is the best recommended colour grading solution to a semi/pro amateur who has never colour graded anything (I've just been shooting very small tourist weddings for the last 8 years!)?

    I was thinking of getting a good 32" Sony or something like this Samsung:

    Excellent - thanks again for the help!
    Chris

    ps no probs with the SD footage!
    Chris, I feel the other consideration is what you are colour grading for. Broadcast requires high standards but other methods of delivery less so. You say you're a semi pro/amateur. Surely you must consider the cost and don't forget that colour grading is an art form by itself. Many professional editors won't go there on serious work.
