What Monitor are you using for Colour referencing?

Having now slithered into HD, and 422 colour space from my CanonXF, I'm wishing to attach a monitor that will be as honest with colour fidelity and detail as my now aged JVC 15" still remains.

Budget? 300 < Monitor < 500 . . . . but I'm open to suggestions.

TIA

Grazie

Re: What Monitor are you using for Colour referencing?

I just un-boxed this one yesterday afternoon,
Dell UltraSharp U2711 27 inch Monitor with PremierColour Details | Dell Australia
I have to say, it is magnificent.
It comes with a factory tuned color report. Does that mean if I set it to sRGB, it should be true? Or would a Spyder still be necessary?
The extra screen space is huge, at 2560 x 1440 Vegas now has so much more available room, I could go back to editing on one monitor with this baby.
Ill prob still run out of the Blackmagic card and into a standard LCD TV for CC. It seems to show me exactly what I see after I burn a disc and watch on the plasma.
Nothing like an early Christmas :)

Re: What Monitor are you using for Colour referencing?

You should be color correcting on the kind of screen which you intend the video to be seen. If it's never going to be seen on anything but a computer monitor, then a well-calibrated computer monitor is fine. But if you're going to view it on some sort of TV, you should be previewing to a device of that type.

Re: What Monitor are you using for Colour referencing?

This week I unboxed a 24" Eizo CG243W after reading a lot of positive comments on this forum.
Extraordinary colours and presets for sRGB as well as ITU Rec 709

Loading the sRGB testchart from HD Testchart - it's great to add this a few frames in the beginning or end of draft/review renders to make sure codec, Vegas and the media player understand each other.
