Video signal to a reference/semi professional grading monitor
Video signal to a reference/semi professional grading monitor

So many links/posts/info on the subject...
Where do I start? (Other then getting the monitor)
I have a setup of a dual monitor PC machine, most of my work is AE and I find myself a lot at the end of a project in a post facility with professional monitors, for those tiny end tweaks...
I am not a color grader/colorist but I often would like to have a video monitor for my work (not only the preview in the comp window).
How do I go about this? (my GFX card is Nvidia GTX 970) and I Currently have 2 great Samsung screens I work with.
I understand I need a new card for that video signal... and a way to sync sound...
Any tips or links are greatly appreciated

You could just calibrate your screens to be more color accurate and that should be good enough.

Thanks Michael!
This is m situation right now... I am interested in getting a monitor! I need one...
I guess Im asking; Am I right? A monitor and a card for the video signal? (my card GTX970, wont allow a 3rd monitor)
