[Chris Kenny] "I have no idea if Apple's current utilization of ColorSync is up to the task, but better computer displays commonly have a wider gamut than Rec. 709 these days."

I specifically said in the post you responded to that hardware-calibrated wide gamut monitors would offer better accuracy than soft-calibrated 8-bit displays.

[Chris Kenny] "There is no fundamental technical reason they cannot display accurate video color."

Black levels vary wildly on standard computer displays. This is a fundamental technical reason why they may not accurately display video color. It's inherent in the panel, and you can't fix it with color management.

But unless you have appropriate lighting and environment color, this is all moot anyway.

[Chris Kenny] "I'm not sure why so much time has been spent discussing FCP X's lack of 'real' video output, when there is good reason to believe this feature will be added."

Because it's not here now, we don't know when it's coming, and Matrox has said the hooks don't exist. Color issues aside, until proper video monitoring is here, how can you monitor for field issues or use external scopes?
