True 1080p monitor & codec solution

I'm working on project with footage 1080p 24fps (23.97 actually) created in Adobe After Effects and brought into Vegas 6 for editing.

Issue is that I need someone of playing back and monitoring the footage in full-time, especially for color correction.

What solutions are there for true 1080p playback (on the PC) and display accurate enough for color correction without mortaging a house?

I know people are using Dell and Apple LCD as well as consumer sets but I can't believe these are either accurate or fast enough for CRT like color and motion response. And consumer sets would lack any way to accurately calibrate.

Plus, I cannot find a pro LCD or plasma that is 1080p native nor a PC codec that runs 1080p in realtime (unless you compress it H.264 or Windows Media HD first).

Any pointers appreciated.

The new 1080p televisions are available. I saw one this morning from Samsung.

I've just been on Sony's and Samsung's site looking at these but can't figure how which input actually takes a 1080p signal - still reading the Sony SXDR manual right now.

I've seen the 1080p tvs at one of the local shops in LA and boy, I don't know if it's the programming or what but the improvements are subtle to the point of negligible. I'd like to see them again and I don't know what spectacular jump in quality I thought I was going to get but for the time being it's not spectacular.

After talking to some ISF calibration engineers it turns out none of the current Samsung, Sony or Mitsubishi sets can be used as true 1080p display devices with 1:1 pixel mapping. The Sony's might yet but the manual indicates HDMI input only does 1080i and the VGA input takes only 1024X1024.

The Samsung image does not have the full pixel count nor does the Mitsubishi though it still is a matter of debate.

I think an LCD is my only shot, probably the Dell.

Per codec, I have found a possible solution using Gearshift from VASST. I can keep my 1080p originals uncompressed and used Gearshift proxies for editing in Vegas. Still testing, but I think it will work.
