Budget Conscious HD Monitoring

Hi Guys

Can anyone point me in the direction of a good discussion on monitoring HD signals from the Kona card with quality and budget in mind?

As in what type of monitor to use? Have you done a search for HD Monitor in this and the FCP forum?

I have been recommending the Panasonic 1700W and 2600W as very good budget monitors along with the Panasonic Pro Plasma series.

In addition, Shane Ross mentioned on my podcast last night that eCinema now has LCD's starting around $4,000 as well.

Short of those, simply go to your local Costco or electronics store and pick out something that looks good to you in your price range.

Thanks again Walter

Would you use the component output for those? Or possibly an SDI to HDMI converter?

I use Component, though the 1700W and 2600W both have HD-SDI inputs standard. The Plasmas have component standard.

the absolute cheapest very good quality HD (only) monitoring is the Dell 2407WFP (about $700) - you use the analog HD Y Pb Pr signal from your Kona to feed the RCA inputs of this monitor - it works just fine. You aint' gonna get 1920 x1200 resolution HD monitoring for cheaper that this.

Wow...thanks Bob! That sounds like a pretty good solution for a very reasonable price!

BTW- I also took your advice on the Behringer audio patchbay you suggested a couple of times here and in the magazine...thanks again!

We're very happy with our Panasonic BT-LH2600W models, we have 7 of these. MSRP is $4950 but you can find them cheaper.

A note about the Panny 2600: bought one and within 6 months I had the strangest problem. Somehow, some dust got inside the monitor and attached itself to the interior of the front plastic panel, completely inaccessible to cleaning. It looked like a big blotch of schmutz.

We brought the monitor to Secaucus, NJ Panasonic service center and they were a bit dumbfounded. They asked if we were bakery or a construction company. Uh, no. We're an editing company. They fixed it for free and said they would make a redesign recommendation.

On DVX user I read a post by Shane Ross about monitoring with the Apple cinema displays. Is anyone doing this? I had a look at the monitors and they certainly have the resolution and image but I'm not sure how you would connect the LHe to the DVI input on the cinema display.

[pom_boarder] "how you would connect the LHe to the DVI input on the cinema display.
"

You can get an AJA HDP converter box.
It takes SDI from your LH and adds scalling options, RCA audio out, and a DVI output for the Cinema HD.
