Hello, I am a video editor for a small advertising agency with a limited budget. We have one editing suit in which we double the use of my 15 year old Ikegami video monitor to use as a client spot review monitor as well. As you can probably guess, this monitor is nearing the end of it's life. I don't pretend to know much about much so feel free to give me any feedback at all. My queston is, does anyone have opinions about what I should invest in, that'll meet my needs and not bankrupt me. I like the Sony LMD232W, but I fear it might be a little pricey for me. I am looking for something that will be large enough for our clients to view from about 12 feet or so. My boss reccomend we just buy an LCD television monitor, but I'm not sure if I would be able set it up properly without a (Blue Only) feature. Unless, I can just unplug the other 2 component cables and be left with only blue. I don't think that's how it works though.
Basically I need something that has good color representation, can hold up under long editing sessions, has a fast enough refresh rate, and is going to be viewable at moderate angles. Any help is greatly apprciated.
