Nvidia Quadro FX3700 Connection??
on Apr 12, 2008 at 3:53:00 pm

Rolling Eyes I'm about to purchase an LCD monitor and LCD TV for video editing. The monitor I am looking at is a Samsung 2253BW 22" LCD and the
TV is a Samsung Series 4 450 LCD. The following is the connections for each;

Samsung 2253BW LCD Monitor
Analog RGB

Samsung Series 4 450 LCD TV
1 HDMI (HD Multimedia) Interface rear
Component video: 1 (Y, Pb, Pr)
A/V inputs: rear
S-Video Input: rear
RF antenna input: rear
Headphone jack: rear
PC D-sub: rear

I want to use the LCD TV for viewing during editing in order to get the colors as close as possible for final dvd burning. My videos are primarily used for SD and HD television.
My question is connectivity. Will the Nvidia Quadro FX3700 accomodate both the monitor and TV with the connections shown above? This card has Two Dual-Link DVI Output Ports. Would I need a certain type of cable for connecting to the TV? If so, please give me the info needed for the correct cords to use.
Surprised ops: As you can see I'm a little ignorant when it comes to the connectivity, but I want to make sure I get the right card to accomodate this monitor and TV. Your help will be most appreciated! Thank you, Ray

U can set the secondary monitor to play in full screen with a few application like windows media player, but waht u get is not really a video signal... it's more like when u clone the desktop and the system simply display video full screen by default.

Actually, it depends on your VIDEO EDITING CARD, not your display card. If you are in the semi-pro to pro market, Matrox has the RTx2 which has DVI and RCA outputs and canopus has the NHX1 board that has option to HDMI output.

If u are in low budget a DV to analog converter might be what u need. It goes to a 1394 port and add analog I/O, again canopus has a product such as this.

Here are the links:
