Previewing PAL footage to external monitor in NTSC land

I am doing a project that requires me to edit PAL footage. Now I live in N.America (NTSC) but if I had access to a NTSC/PAL switchable studio monitor- would this be possible.

I ask because the signal has to go from my PC to my Camera then out to the NTSC/PAL switchable monitor. Will the fact that my Camera(s) are NTSC. Will it allow a PAL signal via IEEE to pass through to the monitor?

I don't think yr NTSC cam will output a PAL signal, even when fed with PAL footage. Maybe yr cam's LCD pic will show a pic, but this is not a pal encoded video. Doesn't yr graphics adapter have a TV out with PAL option?

What are you using to edit with? If it is Vegas you can do it pretty
simple by setting the properties to an NTSC project. Vegas will
now output NTSC to your camera and thus monitor. Yes this will
introduce rescaling and stuttering and whatnot, but you will be
able to see how things look at least.

When you done you can then switch the project back to PAL and
do the final render etc.
