I've set-up a PC editing system at home, working on Avid Xpress.
My Graphics card has dual DVI and TV out, so i've hooked up 2 not very expensive TFT monitors to edit with. It was what i could afford at the time! The problem is that my footage looks really different on the PC monitors to a TV. I've seen the same issues on the edit suite i use at work, but that has a professional sony monitor hooked up to it, so you can view what it will actually look like on output.
My question is what kind of output monitor should i get for home (budget) use. Will an LCD tv that i can put on a bracket on the wall be better than my current PC screens and can i output just what i see in the composer window onto this tv. Secondly how do i wire it up? At work we have the usual routers etc. Can i just come straight out of the tv out on the graphics card and into the back of an LCD TV?
I can work the software, but with hardware I'm at a loss! I'm still using a PD170 camera to input footage, so i don't have a deck yet either to route in and out of.
any advice appreciated.
