Field Monitor Recommendations
on Jul 6, 2008 at 12:18:06 am

Hello Everyone,
I'm about to invest in an HD field monitor and thought I'd check the experts here who, hopefully, have some real world experience with these models. I'm looking to spend $2 - $3K. I've decided to stick with the 7 - 9" units. I'd like HD SDI in and would prefer one with the waveform monitor option. The models I'm looking at are:

Panasonic BT-LH80W
JVC DT-V9L1DU (no waveform or vectorscope)
TV Logic LVM-071

I was staying away from the Sony's, after being horrified by the quality of some of their recent LCD so-called "professional" monitors. Reviews of these units are hard to come by, so any input would be greatly appreciated.


Mac Pro 2.66 - 8GB memory - Mac OS 10.5.2 - Quicktime 7.4.5
Mac Book Pro 2.33 Duo
FC Studio 2 (Final Cut 6.0.3)
Kona Lhe
Adobe Production Suite CS3
Sony Multiformat 14" Panasonic 42" Plasma
Ikegami HLDV7 - Pvw EX-1

Apparently a new MARSHALL monitor of that size is about to hit the market (says my sales rep at Videocraft in Melbourne, Australia). Retails for about $1200, all the required inputs and uses Sony PD150 batteries etc (so another $600 for batteries and charger).

Can't tell you dimensions or much more, but I've been told to hold out for this one for a budget reasonable option.
