16:9 capable television/monitors

I have mentioned the Toshiba 14" client monitor I use several places on the forums and folks keep asking for the model number. This is a 4:3 native television with a 16:9 letterboxing mode built into the remote control.

I shoot with the Sony DSR-PDX10 in 16:9 exclusivly and this is a great monitor for both my client oriented work in 4:3 as well as my personal work in 16:9.

There are 3 sizes for this Toshiba monitor. 14", 24" and 27" and all are pretty mush the same. The sharpness of my 14" is great. It has composite, S-Video and Component inputs as well as a composite output. You can capture whats playing on the set with a deck or use that output to loop to another monitor. A great feature not found in 90% of the monitors out there at the consumer level.

Here are the links to the Best Buy pages for these units.

The 14" version I currently use for clients:

The 24" version:

The 27" version:

My next client monitor however is going to be this one:

Enjoy,

Sean

I second Sean's monitor advice. I use the 14" for editing,
and I'm very happy with it. Especially for having both 4:3
and anamorphic 16:9.

Cheers
