Hi, I just purchased many of the products suggested in Videoguys DIY 7. I purchased Avid Media Composer this past Spring as an upgrade and have yet to use it. I should have all the system parts together by year end. My question is what specifications should I follow for the purchase of a monitor. I did go on the Avid Community forum and it seemed a little too high tech for me but they did say that many of the monitors on the shelf at BB and elsewhere are sufficient.
At this time I just plan to do home movies - loading in old 8mm, Hi8mm and mini dv tapes (from my current Canon GL2 camera). I also bought a Canopus ADV 110 to convert the video.
I dont plan to do any HD or 3D at this time.
Your suggestions on the specs would be greatly appreciated.
