Connect video monitor to G5 PM?

I've got this video monitor, the Sony PVM-14L1 13-Inch Studio Monitor

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...goryNavigation

and would like to be able to connect it directly to my 2.0 G5 PM for uses other than FCP. Is this possible and what cable/connector would I need?

Specs on the monitor show these connections:

Input and Output Connectors

S-Video- 4-Pin (x 2 input, 1 output)
Composite Video- BNC (x 2 input, 1 output)
Audio- RCA (x 2 input, 1 output)
Remote-8-Pin Modular (x 1 input only)

---------
Any help would be most appreciated.

You should probalby go G5 --> firewire --> deck/camera --> analog (i suggest composite/RCA and s-video) --> monitor

At the G5, deck/camera, and monitor are settings you may need to change.
G5: FCP has a setting. It's under A/V and external something.
Deck: select DV --> a/v out
monitor: select the right input.
