Monitoring for Broadcast & Film - Ideal setup?
by Sean Kapleton on Sep 12, 2010 at 2:40:34 pm
I have just recently started up my small shop for broadcast and film post work - we do design, animation, color grading, etc and hope to just do film once enough broadcast jobs have come thru to fund expansion.
My Question is pretty simple: what is the most cost effective way for me to setup proper monitoring out of a mac pro for broadcast and film grading / QCing in After effects, FCP, Color, Resolve, etc? Color space out of AE is a concern so i am curious if i can strictly grade in AE out to a proper calibrated monitor - we use RED footage a lot too and want to upgrade to CS5 for the newer RED workflow options.
I am familiar with black magic cards, aja hdp2 & hdlink, dreamcolor, etc but those setups have always been strictly for broadcast and not necessarily for AE grading so i want to make sure i am covered for grading and QCing out of AE, Color, Resolve, etc for Broadcast & Film.
