3 Monitor Setup
on Nov 27, 2012 at 1:52:23 am

Hello everyone,

Looking for a little help. First time attempting to set up 3 monitors for editing in Premiere. couldn't find my solution in other posts..



Currently using a NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT and 2x 22" monitors. Works fine.

Just purchased a 32" HDTV, and looking into using it as a 3rd monitor for playback. A little confused at what type of graphics card I need to purchase to allow for the 3rd monitor.

Price range Im looking for currently would have to be on the lower end until I can upgrade.


Would something like this work?

"Startech PCI Express HD Video Capture Card"

Have also heard of Blackmagic Intensity Pro, is that the best option for the lowest cost, or are there any better ideas? Any other suggestions?

Is this for video playback only or for desktop extension?

Blackmagic has some USB based units that will do HDMI out, and will emulate the viewport of Premiere.

I would strongly suggest against using any consumer television for things like color correction, so watch yourself when it comes to that.

I guess to answer your question, it would be used just for video playback. What I want is to scrub the timeline, and for whatever I see in my Program window, to also be seen full screen in my new monitor. Mainly for clients to see better than looking over my shoulder.

Could a blackmagic product be used for this, or maybe something else? Or am I going about this wrong?

Hi Jake,

You're correct. Using a card from AJA, Blackmagic or Matrox will do the job you're looking for.
