Color Correction Workflow

We recently switched to XDCAM HD and are doing away with tape and most of the ancillary equipment that goes alone with it.

Having said that, what's a good [cost effect] workflow for color correcting HD? What would be a good flat panel monitor to use? Since we will no longer have a Kona3 (SDI-HD) to feed it can we use DVI directly out of the ATI X1900?

Anyone using the Sony LMD4250W 42-inch WUXGA High Grade LUMA Monitor or the Sony FWDS42H1 42inch Full HD LCD?

How about the BlackMagic Intensity card? Or would I need an MXO2?

Any siggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I can't recommend any monitors off hand, but if you want to pull the signal straight from your X1900 you'll need an MXO (first one, not the second one).

The colour space is different between DVI (RGB) and "real" video (YUV) so you'll need to make sure you use an interface (like the MXO or a number of I/O cards) to get accurate colour.
