Joseph Owens commented:

"I have had a healthy respect for Ikegami cameras and monitors ever since I had to compete against them while doing a stint for a rival Japanese manufacturer. You don't see them much anymore in the general population, but I have to say that of the larger presences at trade shows, theirs are among the few installations where the monitors and cameras actually match."

Yeah, Ikegami was great in the late 1990s and early 2000s. I'm not sure what happened to Ikegami in the last decade, but I just don't see them very often, even at NAB or other trade shows. The color and post industry I see is pretty much Sony Broadcast BVM displays, and often LG OLED for the client.

We initially used Conrac monitors (anybody remember those?) in the 1980s, then Barco. Barco was one of the first companies to make a "large" 25-inch display, and that became very popular. Eventually, Sony came out with a BVM version in that size range and it became the standard very quickly. And by the end of the 1990s, HD started rolling in, and everybody had to invest in 32" Sony BVM-32 color CRT monitors, which were about $25K. I always chuckle when I see newcomers on the forum ask "what's the best monitor for $499?"

I agree with Mr. Owens that the forum software is broke/busted.
