I know that there that can be some video/audio sync issues when playing out an Avid timeline to an external LCD or Plasma client monitor with high levels of latency, but I`m wondering will I have to apply any audio delay compensation when using a single LCD monitor with 2ms (grey to grey) of latency?
I would be checking manual clapperboard syncs on this Avid set up, so I want to make sure the monitoring is accurate.
Audio monitoring would be headphones plugged into the Mac Pro.
Any insight or monitor recommendations would be very helpful.
Get a SynCheck II device, and measure the delay. It's not so much the latency of the screen, but the delay in the processing of an incoming video signal. SynCheck will tell you how many ms of delay is happening. I would defintely apply an audio delay in your monitoring. In the past, I have use the Behringer Sharks DP110's for that, and also a Felston DD540 (digital). Now I'm using a Denon AV7100 pre-amp that has a delay setting built in.
