Greetings,

I have a small video editing business that I just started up. Not quite an amateur, but my business is new enough not to be 'professional'... anyway, I'm looking for a substitute to a broadcast monitor. Eventually, I'll get one, but in the meantime, I need something less expensive.

At my last job, they recommended using a monitor or plasma (something like that) and buying a box or driver that will do the job.

What kind of screen and box? Is this something to do with Blackmagic and MXO I've been hearing about?

-Nathan

Ah, thank you. That is what a friend told me to do as well. Much appreciated.

Plasma screens have floating white points and you'll have to figure a way to calibrate it. They are nice screens, but we calibrate ours to the FSIs.

As this is an FSI forum, not exactly the place to ask what to replace it with since my answer would be there is really nothing that does replace the FSI. You're asking to compare a fully accurate broadcast monitor to another product that might work.

If you are willing to spend money on a "box and a plasma" you're going to be at least halfway to the FSI 1760W. If you are "going to need a broadcast monitor eventually" why not start out with the right monitor to begin with? You can use an MXO or an AJA product to drive the monitor.
