Need a good client monitor
on Jun 8, 2010 at 6:26:11 pm

I have a very good JVC DT-VR 20L Broadcast HD monitor for critical CC but I am looking for a larger flat screen (LCD? Plasma?) client monitor.
Obviously it does not have to be a broadcast CC monitor but still needs to have a really good image.
any suggestions for what works for you?
thanks

I think Panasonic plasmas are a good bet. Best blacks for the dough.

Just pray it doesn't break, because Panasonic's service bites. See the following thread if you want to read a tale of horror.

Hi David, looks like the link has been moved or delete. Actually, I'm seeking info about monitoring... I have a JVC DTV24L and it works really nice. I know is not 100% critical for high end colour correction but fair enough for the moment. And, thinking to buy the new JVC series, DT-V17G1Z, that is the same with a new hd-sdi dual connection that allows you to have a 10bit 4:4:4 signal... perfect for Kona 3.
In my opinion it is probably a big step of JVC as the only cheapest 10bit monitor is the HP LP2480ZX... We all know that next level is 10K for a 10bit 444 monitor, E-cinema, Cine-tal or SFI. So, what would you think about the new JVC DT-V17G1Z?? Could it be best option for low budget critical monitoring using HD-SDI dual conecction?? Anyone has tryed it??

Only thing I don't like about it is that it's not 1080... Also have some experience with this line of pro monitors, and they look OK straight on only. They fall off badly and fast when viewing from an angle. Have not seen this particular monitor though.

Quite frankly though, we get a little nutty I think with Color corrections... unless you can also control the playback setup, you've really no control over what the viewer will actually see. All you can do is grade for a properly setup monitor, after that it's in (YIKES!!!!) the consumer's hands.

Why is not 1080? Also has additional res. for metadata and audio met. Yes, it is probably the worst monitor for angle view... if more than one people looking at it. My point is about new signal feature... From Kona 3 you can use two hd-sdi out connectors for a true 10bit 4:4:4 video signal. Before, I have to use a BM HD-link pro to convert it out to dvi or display port. But now, the DVT24G1Z has two hd-sdi inputs connectors that can be use as a dual link... looks like is the perfect match for Kona 3 to not to use converters anymore... The price of the monitor is exactly the same as the older version when it came out couple of years ago. What connection would you recommend for better results? HD-SDI dual link, DVI-dual link or Display Port? Anyone has idea?

Why not 1080? because it costs a lot more for a 1080 panel, and it says it's not in it's specs...

You'll get a dual link out alright, but it will be scaled down by the set to 720. Hey, this is still better than no monitor at all I'd think.

The DT-V24G1Z fixes the off-axis viewing issue earlier JVCs had by using an IPS LCD Panel. Also, this monitor is native 1920x1080.
