Broadcast monitor (HD) for 4500USD

Outputting from the NLE via a break out box, can accomodate HD-SDI or component out connection.

What would be recommended for color grading HD output for 4500USD budget? Please list your selections and why you would go for what you picked. Many thanks!

well for those in the same boat as me, i've been looking at this:

Learn about Panasonic's BT-LH1760

However, what I do not understand is the resolution that it offers: 1280x768, why can this not up to 1080 res? Esp for the price they are charging!

Spike,

you might want to consider JVC's 24" LCD:

JVC Professional Features page

It has HD-SDI, waveform monitoring, full 1080, etc. Sells for under $4200 at B&H. I have the model DT-V24L1U which doesn't have HD-SDI or waveform, but met my needs, and cost considerably less - I feed it HDMI via a DVI adapter. There was also a model which may still be available that has HD-SDI but no waveform monitor.

Here is a review of that model:

DV - Reviews - DT-V24L1D

The actual selling price was much less than the $4,695 listed in the article.
I think that all three models use basically the same display and have the same quality.

I am not a pro and I do not do color grading, but I wanted a good monitor that would accurately show my videos.

Take a look at the 37" Marshall 1920x1080 with HD SDI input. V-R371-IMD-HDSDI
Marshall Electronics - Choose LCD Monitors - Desktop Monitors
We sell it for a lot less than that list price of $3299. Leaving extra $$ for converters if needed.
I used to have the Panasonic 17" and the only thing I miss is the fact that it had a still store. That way I could bring up a previous wide shot and match the current close-up.
The waveform on the Panasonic was kind of a joke. Not sure about the JVC's?

Since we sometime have HDMI based cameras to test, I'll be adding the AJA HDMI to HD-SDI mini converter AJA Video - Serial Digital Video Interface and Conversion

I also hope to add one of the new Matthews Grip Equipment - Matthews Monitor Mount

Thanks Guy, that Marshall does look good as well and can't beat the price for the size! The only qualm i have with the JVC i mentioned is 1:1 Scaling Mode for pixel-to-pixel 720p display

I was hoping it would have it for 1080 rez footage, or is that asking too much, is there any monitor that does pixel to pixel for 1080?

Actually Spike, almost all of the new Marshall monitors are 1920x1200. There will be a little black at the top and bottom. It can be used for in monitor display if you were in a big production environment doing multicam.

If you're feeding 1080i footage. It will be 1:1. And, yeah, you can't beat the price. We're even at about 11% off list price in the Marshall line if I remember correctly.

The JVC 24" monitors I listed all have 1:1 pixel matching for Standard definition and for 720 and 1080 signals, being 1920X1200 native displays. They can also zoom a standard definition or a 1280X720 signal to a larger size if you don't want pixel matching. They do all of what you want.
