Pros use production monitors. Not computer monitors. Production monitors. They come from the usual suspects -- Panasonic, JVC, Sony, etc. and companies you've never heard of like Flanders Scientific, Marshal Electronics, Ikegami, etc. They have tighter requirements than TVs and computer monitors, and they are made in lower volumes, therefore they cost more. But in this case, you usually get what you pay for.

That is a good monitor for a different kind of production. Its strengths aren't going to be video production. It is first and foremost a monitor for the production of graphic arts. It lacks the tools and features of a video production monitor.

Re: Color Graded Monitor

They say you want a 10-bit monitor. That appears to be 6-bit. Maybe a good field monitor though.

Re: Color Graded Monitor

Getting back to this thread for input prior to a purchase. I really like the Flanders but only the LM-2461W is 10 bit all the others are 8 bit. And the Sony OLED I am told need calibrating often. Flanders does not need calibration from all the info I have read and videos viewed, you send it back and they calibrate once every couple of years. Would be nice to spend a little less since the card is also $1500 on top of the monitor. So options welcome?

There are a few card options. Which do you think from experience using them works best to get SDI 10 bit from my Mac Pro?

Plan on making this purchase before the end of the year and just want to not feel I missed any options.

Edit: My mistake, the Flanders also has a 17" that is 10 bit and from what I am reading is very very good. Now to talk with Flanders.
