Primarily as a dedicated capture machine. I also have XP installed, recently, via BootCamp to interface with some hardware that is PC-only.

Hey Glen

What sizes are both Monitors and are they plasmas

Do you use the smaller monitor for grading and viewing or do you use the huge monitor for everything

How do you work

I love it! I had two 30" displays (one Apple and one DELL) and ditched them both when I went with my first 46" LCD (Westinghouse). I found the native resolution of the 30" displays to be a bit extreme (2560x1600) and difficult to see- especially all the dials and sliders in FCP. Since then I've upgraded to all Samsung large 1080p LCDs.

I have another workstation on the other side of the room identical to this one. Once you work on larger monitors you can't go back. The best part is they are less expensive than the Apple 30-inchers.

How do you work
The primary display is 46" and the secondary is 32". Both 1080p. I use the primary one for working and the smaller one to the right for grading. I find that particular Samsung model to be apt. due to it's built-in blue-only feature. A first for a consumer television, at least as far as I've found. That coupled with Samsung's amazing control they give the end-user over the image quality (attributes usually buried in cryptic service menus on other sets) makes calibrating quite an easy task.

I have the one HDMI fed by my Black Magic Intensity Card (non-pro) from my Mac Pro and the other HDMI input fed by my Mac Mini. On the other side of the room I have a similar set up with another Mac pro but a Macbookpro as a secondary machine.

The setup is very basic and works well for me- it just looks a bit different because of the large wall mounted displays. The only thing "exotic" and/or priced above a typical set-up are the desks I chose. Biomorph Level 3 desks with individual crank-adjusting platform heights- I can't recommend them enough! Anytime I feel like standing and editing (to give the legs some blood..lol) I can hand crank the platform closest to me to standing height. It's got a bicycle-chain'like mechanism inside and is very smooth to crank operate. The rear platform does the same but is nestled flush under the display so there is no need to adjust height.

Finally, if you are looking to go the large display route stay away from Plasma. The technology isn't conducive to static imagery like computers & NLEs produce. However if you were to ask me which technology produces better TV/Movie viewing- it's Plasma, hands down. :) LCDs for computers and Plasma (and projection) for everything else.

Hey Jason. That's cool. I especially love the cinema room with the tiered couches! What a great way to showcase your work.

That's right, I edit on an iMac. Working toward an 8-core pro... eventually...
