what is the cheapest way to run 2 moniters, and get video out to a moniter that works with avid, and even better a card that has a dv port and composite video in. what are you guys using. one agp card that does it all, dual moniter card agp and then a pci card for the video output. There must be a solution for under 200 pounds
the card that avids website says - ati radeon ve / 9000. it seems to me that most cards just have these chipsets on, but are cards that are badged up by other manufactures than ati, some with vivo and some with dual monitors.
I have just bought an ati radeon 9200 128 mb ram vivo, dual monitor. badged up by gigabyte for 70 pounds, the video in is poor cant get it to caputure full size pal very well (obivously not in avid) and the video out is not really video out it is just a display of the desktop.
you can see why i bought this card- as a have a lots of footage from analogure sources that i want to capture in to premiere or simular, but also want to run dual monitors for avid and get video out from avid.
any ideas on a card or ways to cheaply get round this issuse
Have you checked out the Parhelia video card? It can run two computer monitors AND a broadcast monitor via either an S or RCA connector. The image is in sync with the Avid playback (i.e. no delay as with the 1394 output).
