Re: from monitor to TV screen by Kevin Camp on Feb 9, 2011 at 5:38:24 pm
typically you'd have a video i/o card (like those from blackmagic, aja, matrox...), which would allow for ingesting and outputting video to and from a tape (or other baseband device). those cards also have monitoring ports, and that's normally the port that you'd view on a broadcast monitor, though you could connect straight to the output.
you can also use a firewire port to a camera that has a broadcast monitor connected.
i may be wrong, but i think with later versions of ae, if you have a video card that has 2 dvi ports, and you have a dvi broadcast monitor, you can set the preview to use the second port to display the preview.
