Which kind of monitor to use?
on Dec 10, 2002 at 5:01:16 pm

I am about to invest in a really nice system config. However, I have a choice between a 19" monitor or a 17" flatscreen. Are there any issues with using a flatscreen monitor for working with video editing? I have a small apartment and would therefore prefer the flatscreen one...

Thanks,

Matt

The usable area of a 19" monitor works out to about ... tada ... 17" with equivalent resolution to the lcd. The real issue is color fidelity, contrast, and color temperature. You want a display with a color matching profile and the ability to select a 6500 K color temperature. Normal monitor settings are set to 9000 K, so they're way too blue to judge colors.
